I posted this in Dusk's thread on Neutral Factions. Was wondering to see what you guys might think of what I said.
While I do not believe that a centralized neutral faction that any race could join would not work at all only because Lore wise I do not see certain races getting along. However, there was an idea that myself and a couple of friends toyed around with. Yes it would be completely game changing and would NEVER happen, but it is always a nice idea to discuss. Here is my -idea- persay.
I would suggest a complete faction Over-haul in which the factions are re-done, there would be a few problems and such but still, nice to toy around with.
Alliance: Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes, Draenei, some Pandaren, some Sin'dorei (Belf) and some Worgen. Why? Well, the first three are the original Hardcore Alliance races in my mind. I may be wrong, But I have also found many Draenei are very pro-Alliance, so I saw them fit best here. The Pandaren because of some of them joining the Alliance in MoP, and half of the Worgen would join the alliance, those who are loyal. I can also see some belfs joining, those who are STILL loyal to the Alliance after all the events of WC3 and Frozen Throne.
(Could not think of a good name) Guardians of Kalimdor: Kaldorei (Nelf), some Shu'halo (Tauren), some Pandaren and some Worgen. Why? Well from my own knowledge, the Tauren and Kaldorei were both in fairly good terms which eachother before their induction into the Horde. And many of them work together and have grown VERY fond of one another because of the Circle and its branches ie. Hyjal. The Kaldorei helped the (Gilnean) Worgen out a lot so I would not be surprised if many of them chose to stay loyal to them as many have such as those in Felwood. Also, the Circle again brings them closer. I can also see a few Pandaren joining this Alliance, those that would be fond of some of these races or some that might still have ties to their past with the Kaldorei. I personally feel that this would be one of the Strongest Factions in terms of politics.
The Horde: Orcs, Trolls, Goblins, some Shu'halo (Tauren) and some Pandaren. Why? Orcs trolls and Goblins are my ideas of the H-core Horde races. I do not know much of their lore so I can obviously be corrected. Some Tauren would be loyal to the Horde but I see equal numbers, maybe even more going to the Kaldorei. Pandaren because of MoP events.
The Forsaken - Silvermoon Co-alition: Sin'dorei (Belf), and Forsaken. Why/ I really have no knowledge on the Lore of the Belfs or the Forsaken. I do know that the Belfs do not like undead but that is as far as I know., I have personally always seen these two working together, but that is just me. Not much to say here because of my lack of lore knowledge.
Obviously this would never ever happen, but its a nice thing to discuss hm?
