    1 BFA raid and some different trash in 1 dungeon is I believe all the difference in 'faction specific raids/dungeons'. Not worth the effort to make mechanics for race switching with votes and whatever.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    That already happens now though. Battle for Dazar'alor had people "change factions" when the story required it. It just seems silly to make a complex problem when simple solutions exist already. You don't need a group for most instances to be "one faction". The times where it made sense like Caverns of Time Blizzard already gave players an illusion.

    There is no reason to over complicate this or have it be some big system. Just allow people to group. Put illusions on if needed for the few times Blizzard creates a faction/race specific story.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

As you rightly said, racials are in favor of the Alliance now (for the most part); and while the top-end guilds all readily admit they'd be Alliance instantly if that was all that mattered, it is NOT all that matters. The fact that so much of the world-first race now depends on community efforts means that leaving Horde for a fractionally smaller Alliance population would DESTROY the community advantage for the big raiders. So it's not even a point of consideration.

    For racials alone to be the thing that flips it they would have to be so absurdly overpowered they'd break the entire game balance in half - which for obvious reasons has other problems, and a whole slew of them. It really is far too late now.

    Cross-faction play and - hopefully soon thereafter - cross-faction guilds is really the most realistic option at this point.
    Well said, and agree on that. Have heard the "would re-roll, but" from many horde players as well. Since the game isn't growing any more as in the heydays, yea, it's as you said.
