i would say yes to some degree because if u think about it blizzard could use thsi so if a lot of people switch sides then blizzard will put in new quest were u have to find one of these people and kill them and they will be informed that they have been killed because they changed side.

I completely agree with the effective changing of factions. My guild plans on going into this game but we are kind of split on which faction to go. Most of us want to go Horde, but some want to go alliance. I'm sure they will go with whatever our guild chooses in the end but it would be much cooler if we could be what we want but still play together on the same faction.


Q u o t e:
NO FACTION CHANGE>>I HATE TRAITOR >>


Well i guess that isnt a problem since you will be able to kill the traitors in the PvP areas...

Personally, I'd love for some way to switch faction... Accept the fact that, should I make a Horde twink playing Alliance, it will take work and time to get him to the point where I can play him with guildmates. It would also allow friends who want to play Horde toons to eventually join the rest of us, without having to sacrifice their class-race preference.

So my vote is yes.
Stop! Put that post key down. Scroll up..up.. there ya go. See that F.A.Q. link? Press it.

And for the love of God, read it.

Yes, I have wanted to play a human mage switching to the horde since I knew there would be humans in WoW (pretty long time, eh?)

Blizzard already announced my suggestion? I'm sorry, I don't understand.

Do you want to cast a vote?

I'd say it's ok as long as it's pretty damn hard to change factions, and it should be absolutely impossible to make cross faction guilds. Otherwise the ARAC will rule supreme over the lore conform guilds, turning it into another powergamer based game like EQ.
So I give it a maybe :P
A lot of good ideas simply cannot work as they were intended, because of malicious human intent.

I definately think there should be some way to group with an opposing faction, eventually.

Ok this is how i see it. Faction change can be good like the way the poster stated it. The problem is that tons of people will be changing their factions which will result in total confusion. You will not know whether that person is in your faction or whether he is still loyal to his fraction. This will create utter confusion. And if you give the idea of having something on top of their head or a green/red circle around them to see whether he is in your clan would totally ruin the game. I mean imagine that your walking and u see a battle taking place. You first will have to see who is on your faction and not. This will deffinitally slow down and take the fun out of the game.

Changing fraction is a good idea, but very hard to implement without slowing down and taking the fun out of the game.

Chaning factions won't happen. I would suggest the ability to earn the privilege to cross-faction group and enter "enemy" towns. But actually changing your faction won't happen.

Groove,i respect your thoughts and opinions on WoW, although im not sure the essential difference between "changing factions" and being able to group with and enter the towns of the opposite faction.can you clarify this?
