I think it's pretty clear what most people want at this point. At least those who care strongly enough about the game to follow the messageboards.

I wish Blizzard would post a little something saying "hey thanks we have seen this thread and will give your suggestion some thought because of your significant result."

They don't even have to stand behind my suggestion per se, just recognize the demand for cross-faction interaction as demonstrated by this poll. The fact is that people want to play with their friends of the opposite faction. Blizzard can come up with their own solution if they want.

Dead horse, can't you guys just wait till it goes to beta and then they see how it works with a lot of people. Instead you act like you already play the game every day and you know it sucks. I have a feeling it's gonna be very cool. Keep it that way Blizz.

that's an interesting idea. I like the idea of "mixing" up the factions a bit, but I also see reasons for keeping them separate.

Yes.

However, it should be VERY Difficult to achieve, and it should have some hefty consequences.

For example, Pretend you are a Tauren Warrior. You run into a neutral NPC (who is a Night Elf) who requests that you kill several Undead who have been attacking Night Elf Villages. So you go and kill lots of Undeads (who are technically your ally).

Eventually, you will be hated by the Undead, but loved by the Elves....gaining the ability to group with the Elves but LOSING the ability to associate with the Undead.

However, I REPEAT that this should be VERY difficult to achieve, so that you don't get hundreds of people all in different factions....

Just my two cents.

I really hope it will be Horde ("evil" races) vs Alliance (good races). To change faction is not a good idea. Hope it will stay true to the world of warcraft.

I have however also this problem to choose race which suits with my friends. I wana play a undead but my friends want to play the good races. But it doesn't bother me that much to switch to a good race, because I am sure my friends want also to try out evil races too later on.

My biggest concern is however that you only can have like 8 characters per account. That's too little for me especially when you want to try out the two sides of the coin (good and evil). It would be better if you could have 8 character per faction (2 factions x 8 characters). 16 characters per account would suit me much better than only 8.

Yes as long as it's REALLY hard so that you'd need to be around lvl 50 atleast. Also if you changed factions you wouldn't be able to change back for eight months atleast.

Worthwhile idea... mentioned many times before =/. I believe the full extent of faction rules and limitations hasn't been announced, but I know that each character has a reputation. Although I'm not sure whether or not this is referring to Factions, it is very likely that it is.

I'm pretty sure raising your reputation (or lowering) is already an option, it's just that actually changing factions isn't an option. Which personally I think is perfectly fine. It makes it so that when you see an Orc (and you're on alliance) you dont' need to check their profile to see if they're alliance or HOrde. You can instinctively react.
