WoW's recent expansions encourage cross-faction Gameplay from wilkinson's blog


If you are thinking about World Warcraft's decision of introducing cross-faction gameplay, it's important to be aware of how important the rivalry between the two factions is today compared to twenty WOW WoTLK Classic Gold years ago. Examining the first three titles: Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, and Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal The plot of the games is centered around the conflicts that rages between Orcs and Humans, and later Alliance or Horde. Even the cover-art of the games is all an angry Orc facing an angry Human soldier.

Things were drastically changed in Warcraft III due to the advent of The Burning Legion and the actions of the Alliance's Arthas Menethil, who can be found in WoW. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos saw the arrival in the form of The Burning Legion, the greatest threat Azeroth had ever seen, which caused the Horde and the Alliance to come together to take on them. It is in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne The story focuses on Illidan and Sylvanas fighting against Arthas and The Lich King.

When Thrall attempts to defend the brand new Horde the city Durotar from Jaina's father's wrath with her help. As of Warcraft III, the focus of Warcraft's story is no longer concerned with the Horde and Alliance fighting, and more about them forming impervious alliances in order to defeat the bigger evils. The only WoW expansion Battle For Azeroth in 2018 focused on the old war with cover art that is similar to Warcraft: Orcs & Humans.

WoW's recent expansions encourage cross-faction Gameplay

The expansion released prior to WoW WOTLK Classic ironically revealed some of the greatest reasons to offer cross-faction games. Battle For Azeroth began by focused on the Horde the leader Sylvanas Windrunner, who attempted to consolidate Horde's power in the aftermath of Legion. The Alliance was intent on stopping her, and pursuing the Undercity and trying get Kul Tiras aid them. This section of the expansion felt like  cheap WoTLK Gold classic Warcraft storytelling, in that the actions of the players directly were attacking the opposition or were part of a larger plan to stop them.
