I think with Real ID, cross faction chat is already possible with your friends; that may be all we'll get for the time being.
Glad to hear this! This has been an awesome Blizzcon!
Good, actually good. If you want to play with your friends on a faction then you play on that faction as your main and if you want to play with other friends/other reasons on the other faction you just level an alt. The faction restrictions is what makes warcraft actually be warcraft there would be so much problems if they would allow dungeons/raids with people from other factions.
Makes you wonder if we'll just fall back into old habits, or maybe just have small conflicts that we don't involve the whole Alliance/Horde in. The latter would be great for more personal, grey (oh noes, I said it!) writing. I don't want the characters taking any easy options out of a sticky situation.
Жёстко, но крайне справедливо. И это хороший рп опыт. Опять же, не хоронить же режим войны
yupi the only good alliance is in a grave
lol... and that leak months ago said that there was 1034839265% going to be a merging etc... knew that was a load of bs...It is however a shame that we can't have a teamup in dg's and raids with friends of the other side though. :(
Good, wouldnt want it any other way.
Really thought with Saurfang's "For Azeroth" was a hint towards merging the factions sooner rather than later.
Would have at least loved to see us being able to communicate with the other faction, since the "hero" characters can, so why wouldn't we be able to..
Well kinda expected. They cannot merge them together, after all this entire game is ally vs. horde.
Although there is still war in Warcraft, keeping the factions separate is a good idea.
Unfortunate, but completely expected
I'm happy about this. Faction conflict is one of the core pillars of Warcraft, so it would make little sense to get rid of that.
I'm really glad that their keeping the factions, it just world not feel right to have a tauren, orcs and trolls walking around in Stormwind, without being attacked by guards. The factions are a key to what makes World of Warcraft what it is. It just wouldn't be right if it was made a part of the game.
Disappointing.I really want to play a Vulpera, but all my friends who still play are Alliance.
I was hoping we'd maybe get some new factions other than just horde and alliance but I guess that would change the whole game.
Hmmm It would be interesting to see factions get removed but on the other hand it would make too many people that love their faction and hate the opposite one angry so maybe its better to stay safe and leave it how it is :)
When some friends told me they saw a leak about a joined faction I was like "why would they do that?". So glad they did not and it was a fake leak. Horde vs Alliance is the core of the game and I hope it stays like that.
