For years now, many players have questioned whether the rules restricting communication and cooperation between Alliance and Horde need to be so absolute. The faction divide could keep close friends from playing together, or cause players to feel that their faction leaves them with far fewer opportunities to pursue their favorite group content. But these downsides have long been justified in order to preserve a central element of the Warcraft universe—it all began with a game titled, “Warcraft: Orcs & Humans,” right?
I am pleased to announce that we have finally released the ability for Alliance and Horde players to form premade parties together for dungeons, raids.
There have been two decades’ worth of game play with the assumption that parties can only have players of a single faction, and we are therefore likely to find some issues along the way and we will do our best to make sure we fix them as soon as they appear.
The only condition we have added is that player need to be between levels 15-66. This is to avoid the faction-specific dungeons and raids at higher levels.
We are confident this will bring a much required sense of community among the players and promote cooperation across factions.
We’re eager to hear your feedback you may have.
