The whole concept of people rolling characters strictly for the purpose of betraying the horde or the alliance is laughable. As if it's not hard enough already to find groups of people willing to work together, now we want to have people who are leveling in the BE area because they like it better then the alliance areas (or maybe some alliance secretly pine to level in the awe-inspiring Barrens for example), and then switching over. And helping other people during their initial leveling? "I'm gonna be going alliance soon, I don't care what such and so thinks of me..." could easily be a common mindset.When we go into playing a game like World of Warcraft, in fact, chances are we did not just buy this game as an impulse, with no clue what the difference between a human and an orc is. Chances are, we have friends who played, or we played the original Warcraft games and have some idea about what's going on. There are countless sites of lore and forums (I suggest the european) for us to read through before picking a character, and if it doesn't matter enough to you to know about it beforehand, it shouldn't be such a big deal later, especially since when it boils down, both alliance and horde have the same ratio of nice people to annoying beggers to competent players to 'just bought this account' newbs. Leveling has the potential to be one of the easiest parts of this game, and if you just want to go alliance or horde to be with friends (I mean, why else would you decide to switch halfway through leveling?), wouldn't they help you enough to make it worth a new roll?And finally, Mike, you talk about it in terms of a level 70 deciding they made a mistake on their faction? Getting through the entire leveling game in spite of this means that it's probably not that big of a deal to them, since once you hit endgame, you're going to the same instances and raids. ;)
