The World of Warcraft is abuzz as is the blogosphere. Soon they will allow you to switch sides to another server. I have mixed feeling on that. At one point I had a lot of friends on alliance side PVP server, while I had a bunch of toons on a horde side PVE server. I could of used this service years ago, even getting a sex change to boot. LOL!
Putting my own selfish desires aside, I don’t think is such a good idea. You have racials to think about, you have balance to think about. This could tear apart guilds, and decimate a low population side on a server more then it is.
Then I thought, Why fricking even have different sides, why the pretense of different sides. Just remove the Horde/Ally thing, and make one big side. 40 people instance up and beat on each other no matter the side. I think we started heading down this path when Horde got Pallies, and Alliance got Shamans.
I remember a time battling it out at the Crossroads, and then when BG’s came out when it was just our server, battling it out tooth and nail…why? Because I was Horde. I screamed “For The Horde” over Vent. I took pride in my Realm I chose. Those days are long gone.
As for now those friends that played on the other server don’t play any longer, I am still on the same server, playing my Forsaken Mage. Which whom I really dig, I like the Forsaken Lore, and way of thinking. I’ll be sticking to my guns.
But I tell you what, somtimes I feel there really is no War in the World of Warcraft.
