Q u o t e:
its a game about war....But the point is your ruining continuity believe it or not. and if you start mixing up races to level together your ruining the whole point of warcraft in truth


I hear what you're saying,and it does make some sense,but i would like to say a few things on that.
First the point that its a game about war. And yes,obviously it is,but as idealistic as people like to be,war has more going ont hat the physical battles. people switch sides and decieve and defect all the time. i use the movie Lionheart as an example,even the most noble clan leader of the scots defected to english side.and this is no special thing,benedict arnold is imfamous. it happens all the time.
Second,the continuity factor,yes continuity is important to an extent,but if things never changed it would get so boring,and blizzard knows this and changes things up too,look at the undead joining the horde.
Ok,i said way too much,but oh well. i had something non spammish to say so i said it,i hope i helped at least one person think differently.
Over and out.
Like everyone, Ix got sick of dwarves joking "hows the weather up there?",and so Ix become a shaman and showed them firsthand...

DeathCraft, that is completely different and irrevelvant this. Those Humans were serving Sauron for hope of power.

DEFINETLY no to this! I mean, think about it. What would happen to the story line if there were just as many orcs on the Alliance side in a war zone as humans? That would be just SCREWED UP! I think my no should count twice. :D

There is nothing wrong with a little discussion and debate, but let's not lose sight of the point of this thread. I will keep updating the tally.

Hahhahahahaha exactly

please keep on proving my point. The point is not the movie, but why people from one side can join the other.

-besides what reason would you have to go backj, you changed to be with your friends right? hehe
------------------------------------------------

Blizzard does introduce changes, but let's not completely forget continuity, and as I pointed out on page 2, treachery is not a new plot twist in the Warcraft universe.

It would ruin the whole racial hatred that the WarCraft universe has going for it. Changing the entire storyline to please a few whining roleplayers is asinine. "I want to an Undead loving Dwarf and marry and procreate with one and have little kiddies."

I hate roleplayers for the mere fact that they think everything should be determined by the players. Player created stories suck and very few actually fit into the respective universe.

DeathCraft, LotR does not equal WoW. Do not act as if they are even close.

Were not trying to change the story here, were trying to show that the story Includes races defecting to other factions

DeathCraft, I understand that it is your opinion, but I call you stupid because you are acting as if LotR and WoW are the same.

There's plenty of treachery in Warcraft 3 even, for those who are more familiar with this storyline. Thrall's brother betrays him to rejoin the demons. Medivh returns to help remedy the damage he caused. Prince Arthas pulls the sword and becomes the Lich King. Night Elves, Humans, and Orcs all work together to defeat the demons. I haven't even played Frozen Throne yet, and I'm sure there's plenty of intrigue to be found there as well.

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." This axiom seems to be one applied in the Warcraft universe extensively. If not for power, then what? Perhaps for a better future, the motivations behind the Oracle's assistance to the rebels in "The Matrix"? There's more than enough cause to allow faction switching.

I trust Blizzard to make the right decision and I like the Idea of not grouping with othe faction. I already replied that we do not have enough information yet to make a proper guess.

One complaint from mose MMO's especially with EQ is why can an Orc group with a Human, or why is that Dark Elf friends with a High Elf.

Blizzard are trying to make a fun MMO not an EQ clone.

No.

From the looks of this thread, I'd estimate that 40% of the posters will change factions to play with their friends. Now if this number is relative to the entire community, how will it look when 40% of the Night Elf capital is filled with taurens. Or 40% of Durotar is Dwarf? I hardly believ there will be that many "mercenaries", or "defectors". My numbers may be off but I see where these people are coming from when they say it will compromise the story.

Must stick to the storyline. -zigon

I vote YES and you actually just backed me up! because if you knew anything about he stroyline you'd know that people trade sides all the time in WC, Garona for example. Orc spy turned human informant... looks like she traded sides to me!

Garona was not an Orc, she was shunned by them.
