Cross faction just means there are not enough players right now.... Wow is no longer attractive
Would have been way too soon for S4 imo. Alot of people might come back with this for KSM3.
Brace yourselves alliance players, when you screw up or fail a key, you will be the scapegoat.
Can Alliance and Horde players in a group can click the summon stone portal?Don’t understand why they don’t extend it to the LFG and LFR Tool. Would really help the queues.
+15 weekly no alliance
How could bad routing have anything to do with faction? I’m alliance and I use the typical routes from raider io, videos and/or streamers.It’s not like alliance players don’t have access to the internet and thus have to invent their own routes.
I read somewhere that sending mail cross-faction is now also possible. Is this true?
Unfortunately I don't think much will change, at least in terms of faction population balancing, until cross faction guilds, like as much as I would love to go void elf I'm not gonna give up access to gbank / gchat etc for it, and other guildies said the same thing
spoiler : if you already playing horde, having the 3 ppl coming from alliance on your serv wont change your game.
Sadly I just gave up leveling alliance races until they announce some changes on the restrictions or see if people adapt and start using communities (which I highly doubt).
Meh… half measure as usual. This is really not very exciting with so many restrictions catering to some tiny, tiny minority of people who think hating players on the other faction is cool or something… Just dissolve all the boundries like the vast majority of people have been asking for.No cross faction guilds, no LFD/LFR, no world content and stuff like “However, the group leader may restrict the listing to same-faction applicants if they choose.” Just ruins the whole thing and promotes the same stupid toxicity and tribalism the original system did. For example I doubt many horde raid guilds are going to bother recruiting alliance members that can’t actually join the guild and participate with the guild bank, guild achievements, cant be in guild chat, no guild repairs, can’t do world activities like new zone world content with guildies, screw up wowprogress/rio rankings and thus effect recruiting etc., when it’s easy enough to just recruit horde. And you won’t truly feel apart of the guild when you can’t even actually join it in game… you’ll always feel like somewhat of an outsider and that will create social conflict.And as for alliance guilds, why would a hordie look for an Alliance guild they can only pretend join when they can just easily find a Horde guild without so many restrictions? So this won’t help alliance raid guild recruitment much if at all.Alliance will still be second class citizens in end game content till all restrictions are gone and they can join any guild they want freely and with no stupid restrictions and work arounds required.Rip the bandaid off… stop pulling on it slowly and then just leaving it halfway on and forgetting about it probably. I have a bad feeling they'll listen to the tiny vocal minority and just leave it like this to perserve the "for the horde" "for the alliance" stuff.
The difference is going to be minimal. The greatest impact is that it just helps friends play together who split up some time ago.I am also surprised that so many people assume that if it was opened to lfr/lfg it would speed up queue times. The queue times are predominately defined by the availabilty of certain roles (aka tanks/healers) - their distribution is roughly the same among both factions. A greater player pool of course will make it more likely that some raids open up at all, for example pre 9.2 I wanted a Castle Nathria legendary pattern for my new alt, and even as horde I gave up after 5h in the queue. But that's obviously a special case (and once again not really thought through by Blizzard and fixed in a later patch).
