Faction change was announced a few days ago, and its been a heated and typically whine filled debate.
Good god wow community, quit your bitching. Folks seem determined to crap on any idea, change, or shift in the game. I like reading the constructive feedback, can stand the “but this might break…” posts, but there seems to be a solid contingent of players who are determined to find anything that is new and bitch.
Like I said in one of the threads on project lore:
There is no gear, achievement, etc issue that cannot be solved with a little logic.
The players who want this service will pay well for it, and it pretty obviously not aimed at players who are happy to re-roll. Its not aimed at hardcore “back in my day..” players either. The players who want it will also accept some fudging of results too. Its aimed at players who wish to play without re-playing the content. And they’ll have to pay – more power to ’em.
Just like paid toon transfer (or the barber shop, recruit a friend, easy modes, or frigging anything) you don’t have to use it and it does not hurt your game if somebody else does.
C’mon guys, there are great things to talk about.
- Players might to to play with their friends otherwise lost to other factions.
- It can be used with some rules to help realm balance.
- You can switch a toon over to see how the other side of the game without starting from scratch.
I’d like to see them allow the races to stay the same, but the toon make a permanent Faction change. There is no class unbalance anymore (shaman vs paladin); so having a Human traitor to the Alliance; or an Orc who was raised by elves but did not revolt like Thrall is a cool idea.
Give the player base one Traitor per server limit, and see what the RP realms do. They’ll go nuts with stories, movies, and all sorts of roleplay.
ps. yup, I know I bitch like the rest of them from time to time. Ohhh the irony.
