i would allow this if it flagged them like they were in stv arena since they are all faction traitors
Doesn't make much sense bashing each other's heads in when there's greater evil to be fought, tbh.
I never understood the ganking that was going on at Molten Front from an in-character point of view. I mean, see, there's this big bad elemental lord called Ragnaros, and he wants to take over the world together with Deathwing and stuff... Oh, but I'll rather kill that Alliance guy over there because if I kill my enemy's enemy it'll be awesome because he'll have fewer people to stand up against him... oh wait a second...??????????????
Also, Horde druids and Alliance druids are in the Cenarion Circle together with no petty faction squabbles, etc.
As for BGs... well, let's regard them as "historical battles" when we join them, and it's all good ^^
It would be about time to have guilds with members of both factions (it's actually possible through a little bug with guild faction change and server transfer and then transferring a character that was in the guild while it was still on the original faction and joining the guild as Alliance despite the guild being Horde I had to initiate a faction change afterwards to make things right again. Guildie had the same "issue" before me already. We found it hilariously funny.)
It would certainly make it better in social aspects, but I also think it'd ruin a bit of the point, so no!
They've been floating the idea on fansites for some time now and it's slowly making it's way into the game. There's the censer that lets you attack your own faction and the auction house will be cross faction in WoD. I predict a RL romeo juliette story about cross faction love emerging soon.
Can't wait to see the forum fireworks when they completely gut their lore and roll out the lets all be friends patch
(maybe this is why Pardo left?)
Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?
I don't really enjoy having to play both sides to play with all my friends, they finally made stuff cross-realm, this would be the next logical step.
But only for instanced content.
Or introduce a double agent mode, idk, there has to be tons of ways to do that and it would make sense.
Yeah, the faction war is pretty contrived at this point and is artificially extended despite never actually resulting in any meaningful consequences.
I can see if they get to a last expansion for WoW, we all band together to fight the burning legion. Not until then, at least.
For whole, I don't agree, but certainly there should be some major quests, like killing demon leaders where you could unite and kill them as a united group against the greater evil.
Quitting WoW is very similar to quitting smoking.
Easier then most people think, the hard part is not coming back a few weeks later.
I think there should be special events where the Horde and Alliance can team up together. But I don't think it should be a normal practice added to the game.
I'd say yes, with clearly more important things to care about (Legion etc..), what's really the point in fightning each other?
Both factions have already cooperated several times before.
The answer is: YES and NO
Definitively NO on PvP-Server: There is open war on PvP-Server, so it should NOT be allowed to play together.
But also YES on PvE-Server: People on PvE-Server decide for PvE, most of them simply couldn't care less for PvP. So why should they not be allowed to work together with the Horde? This would allow even unbalanced PvE-Server to have a healthy raid environment.
But i know with cross realm raiding this does not get easy, it would there need some restriction for PvP-Realms.
So to make it work there can be 2 variants:
1st variant: No invitation between people on PvP-Realms and people of the other faction: That mean: If you have already someone from the other faction in your group, you cannot invite someone from an PvP-Realm. Or if you have invited someone from your faction from a PvP-Realm you cannot invite someone from the other faction.
2nd variant: Invite of both possible, but NOT from the same server. You can invite someone from the other faction, someone from a pvp realm and even someone from the other faction on a pvp-realm. But you cannot invite someone from different faction that are on the same PvP-Realm.
So 2 people from PvP-Realms
Player 1 Alliance Server 1, Player 2 Horde Server 2 is possible
Player 1 Alliance Server 1, Player 2 Horde Server 1 is NOT possible.
Both variants are possible. As a player on a PvE-Realm i couldn't care less about PvP. Heck, to make it lorewise possible they should create a joinable 3rd faction that is neutral to both. A new quest, when you are champion on the Argent tournament should allow you to join the Argent Crusade to be neutral. (and Knights of the Ebon Blade for Death Knights)
Cost 200-300 Champion Seals.
Yep, more partial to the Alliance but my friends all play Horde.
Make a small set of scenarios/dungeons telling a story of horde and alliance coming together to stop the Legion. Make it clear that the heroes participating are not friends. Make the pvp vendors or even faction leaders offer a small quest or dialog explaining the at the root, we are still enemies.
Everybody is happy.
I would....love it...actually.
There are many more casual raiding guilds (And raiding guilds in general) on alliance side that would be perfect for me (My current one is fine but they're all about progression and prefer to skip flex, I'm looking for a flex-normal type guild).
Plus it'd make sense lore-wise seeing as the horde-alliance war is over. Perhaps make all opposing faction NPC's unfriendly instead of hostile and allow grouping/guilding with the enemy faction, as well as removing the language barrier (All these features would be turned OFF for PvP servers though, to make them a little more unique).
It would also provide a few neutral roleplaying guilds on my server to flourish with new members and could give the horde a bit of a boost in terms of roleplay (Currently only silvermoon and the valley of honour seem to have roleplayers constantly, not including goldshire for obvious reasons).
However I think many people would hate it (Though they could always play on a PvP server but still), for gameplay it's a great idea but the community might deteriorate a little with the factions constantly arguing in trade) but I personally would be all for it.
Or better yet just end the war and have pvp as intanced area outside of lore. Right now there is no reason for the horde or alliance to be at war with each other. Garrosh/Varian being assholes were the reason for the latest war which is now over. And it would be bad writing for the sake of gameplay that would create the next war. Just go with how other mmos are. Have 2 factions who are now peaceful with each other, building a good relationship and have a build up for the legion/naga/whatever.
Accept the war between horde and alliance is over and realise just because there is war in warcraft it doesn't mean it has to be horde vs alliance. It could be azeroth vs legion, iron horde, old gods, naga, etc.
