World of Anduincraft: Anduiny Adventures Starring Anduin.I would love to see how the meeting went down in the boardroom when that came up."The market is stating we're terrible at stories and we are spread too thin on our quests team. What should we do?""Why don't we merge the factions and make our focus on telling stories of Anduin more?""Mark... That's brilliant! You get paid this fiscal year, and as a bonus, you get to have lunch."Hell, go full anime and our "war" against big bads as united they just magically become our friends to fight the next big bad!I AM THE VOID, I COME TO YOU AFTER YEARS OF DESTROYING YOUR UNIVERSE FOR AIDE TO HELP FIGHT NEGAVOID! EVEN MORE POWERFUL AND THREATENING THAN WHAT I WAS BUT I AM GOOD GUY NOW SO YOU CAN ROLL MY RACE OF AMORPHIC STAR GLOOP!Oh yeah, I think I just discovered 10.0 storyline right here. So great, so edgy, so very Blizzard!
Factions have been faked forever now. They need to go away.
You know, I checked over Blizzard's "List of Things They'll Ever Do in Warcraft" and shockingly, "Permanently end the faction war" is nowhere on that list.If they ever really end it, it'll be at the very end of the very last expansion..... so maybe the end of this one.
So i told saurfang to f off a few months ago now i help him?
Personally, I would like 2 or 3 x-pacs where the Horde and Alliance laid down their differences and worked together against a common enemy. WM and BG's could remain in place, to sharpen each other's skills as it were. Just imagine if there were both factions in dungeons and raid even. you could go into the other factions cities without being attacked. I would be down for it.
They'll be back to slaughtering each other for stupid reasons in the next expansion. If the game doesn't sink completely due to atrocious writing and annoying implementation first.
There always going to be factions, but don't you see the obvious message this post and blizzard gives? Most if not all races will be neutral, maybe all races but the ones that didnt have seperation. It's and easy fix to faction imbalance. It will be weird to see some races in Stormwind, thought. I'm pretty concerned about factions identities, since there will be nothing to seperate us other than cities, and stories, which is not really on spotlight during gameplay.
My vision of how this expansion pans out and how will next one be:Sylvanas keeps on doing ''bad stuff'', keeps on kill stuff, everyone hates here more and more... Horde and Allienace comes together once again to stop this ''new danger", this time seemingly more bound together, to set up for next expansion... Anyway... At the end of this expansion, we manage to do ''the big fight'' with Sylvanas, BUT of course, we couldnt finish her off (or imprison her) before she escapes... expansion ends with Sylvanas walking in ICC Throne room ... You know where this is going, right?So next expansion, we are together Alliance and Horde, putting our differences in the past, fighting as one against the new "super danger to life as we know it"... the dead... Sylvanas & Co (whatever happens in that throne room)...Expansion is Life vs Dead... Life vs White Walkers... oh wait, wrong universe.
Yeah this isn't going to happen. What will Blizzard do if they can't beat that old "faction war" drum? They can pretend that it's eventually going to happen but it's all crocodile tears.
I'd be surprised if they got rid of factions as a whole. I just don't think it'll be 'Horde vs Alliance' Anymore. It'll be whatever they combine into vs a new faction that the players can choose to play as. Maybe it'd be Light vs void, or something similar to that. That's what I'm hoping for at least, I want to fight for the Old Gods for a little while at least.
I would be good with no factions. I started this game as an alliance night elf and I think it was last year maybe that I made a horde toon so I could get the stuff you could only get as horde. Sometimes I'll be taking care of business in a city and someone in chat will be complaining about alliance or even just last night, apparently alliance was attacking and someone was like lets go kill the alliance attacking our city and I was just sitting there like I'm alliance, no thank you. Then I started wondering how many other people actually consider themselves alliance, but also have a horde toon for whatever reason and are sitting there thinking the same thing. How many people actually just play one side or the other anymore? I know there are those that are adamantly one faction or the other and they'd like to see all of the other faction dead, but honestly you've probably already been grouping with people that consider themselves the opposite faction. More likely horde to be grouped with someone who considers themselves alliance since alliance is struggling so much right now. I personally like it when there's a world boss or a big bad and you see everyone from both factions working together to take it down. Honestly, I'll stop and help either faction if I see someone struggling with something and I've been helped on my alliance characters by horde characters and vise versa.I'd even be happy with keeping the factions and just ending the divide. How cool would it be to be able to talk to a tauren on a night elf and actually be able to understand them? I can't tell you how many times I'm standing there waiting to kill something with the opposite faction and they say something and I'm like what? It would also be nice to go to a horde city during the holidays and not get beaten up by the guards and anyone that felt like pvping. I'm like I don't want to pvp, I just want the flame for the quest!
i just wish that in the end, sylvannas reveal that she was being controled by nzoth, and with her last glimpse of sanity, she made all those crazy things so horde and alliance united agaisnt her, and at her last breath she says "now that i made u guys unite against an enemy, turn ur attention to the real enemy" and then diesif this is garrosh 2.0, im deleting my acc forever
i would be happy with the merging of the factions if it means more groups to join for raids and mythics...
