As cool as it would be being a tauren walking peacefully through the streets of stormwind with our new bond, the unfortunate truth is that the enemy of my enemy is only a friend until that greater enemy is gone.
Disagree - your player base is already shrinking at an alarming rate: but I propose a solution.Do what ESO did and put a purchasable item (real money) into the game that allows you a one time option to select a race for any faction.For example - If I wanted to play a Worgen but on the Horde side or play as an Undead for the Alliance.This makes sense for quite a few reasons and some of them fit the lore.Reality - You will always have betrayer - those who will do anything for money - including turning on their own people. There are plenty of reasons for the Worgen to hate the Undead, but there's also plenty of reasons for them to hate the humans of Stormwind.Lore Reasons - The undead have Calia Menethil and Derek Proudmoore back - most of the humans have gotten used to the existence of the undead and it was even mentioned that the Forsaken who wanted to return to their families (and who's families would welcome them) be allowed to return. Doesn't break the lore, doesn't go against any philosophies already in game.I do not care about either faction. I like them both. I sympathize with them both - but unfortunately, all of the friends I have made over the years all play on Horde side. I have an IRL friend who would love to play with me, but he doesn't like any of the Horde races - but would consider returning to the game to play with me and my friends if he could play Worgen on Horde side.Also - by selling this 'Token' to create a character of any race for either faction (One Time Use) - Blizzard makes money, and really - we know that's what Blizzard wants.
