    Ok. Let us assume that High Elves do have the chance of becoming playable in the future. Why didn't Blizzard just add High Elves instead of Void Elves during Legion? Then Void Elves could have been added later on in Battle for Azeroth and given a proper introduction.
    The Void. A force of infinite hunger. Its whispers have broken the will of dragons... and lured even the titans' own children into madness. Sages and scholars fear the Void. But we understand a truth they do not. That the Void is a power to be harnessed... to be bent by a will strong enough to command it. The Void has shaped us... changed us. But you will become its master. Wield the shadows as a weapon to save our world... and defend the Alliance!

    They answered that. Void Elf fits the story now over High Elf and they are distinct enough to qualify as an Allied Race.

    It is strange that Void Elves fit the story now, considering that the main theme of this expansion is the faction war, not the fight against the Void. It would be like saying that Demon Hunters should have been playable in Warlords of Draenor... No, they shouldn't have, they didn't fit the story yet.

    Oh, I am certainly not a pro High Elf or a Void Elf hater, in fact my point is to prove that, if High Elves were not added instead of Void Elves, it's most likely because Blizzard doesn't want them playable.

    Did you ignore the second half of my statement?

    Yes, because it is something that I already know.

    Then you should understand the first part too. Void Elves are tied to the story of Legion and the uncoming Faction War ... they are Blood Elves outcasts who decided to join with the Alliance. The story doesn't have to be good.

    I suspect they will only have small cameos in the upcoming Faction War. And that High Elves would still have a bigger role in it than them.

    Story is one of the most important reasons for why I play games in general, so I'd prefer it to be good. I have no horse in the High Elf discussion, but just generally speaking in terms of WoW's overall story, and the smallers quests, I would rather Blizz stop treating its story/lore like a punching bag and shape up.

    I do as well, but expecting them to change their stance now isn't going to work.

    I don't find Void Elves creative in anyway. But I am also not an alliance player. So far none of the Allied Races scream "creative" to me ... they all scream Copy paste get something out quick.
    You think High Elves are "creative" then?

    Wow

    Wow
    I never said or implied anything of the sort. High Elves wouldn't be anymore "creative" than Void Elves to me.
