One of the things I've kind of come to understand (and still sort of struggle with in actuality) from the Know Your Lore posts is that, from a timeline standpoint, everyone in WoW starts at the same point, and ends at the same point. Even if the game has been out for 10 years, your lvl1 Tauren begins his life in WoW at generally the same moment in time as everyone elses.This means that the faction rivalry in midgame may indeed have been smoothed out by endgame, and that the neutral factions make sense from a Lore standpoint. Because characters pre-70 are 'back in time', and that rivalry has already passed.As I said though, I have a hard time really accepting this idea conceptually. And in part because of that, I agree with this complaint. Neutral factions certainly make things easier on the devs, but until either the Horde and Alliance really do join together and gain the ability to talk/quest together, the separation of the two should be more clearly defined. We don't need another war of sides, but certainly some more Lore showing the straining relationship between them, at least! Give us some warring factions each side can help out in their own little battle!

If this Timeline is there, what I'd ask then is that there's some sort of way that the player can see this "peace" happening. Let's see the Orcs and Elves sign a peace treaty. Let's see the RAS lead away in chains and the Human Mind Slaves of the Forsaken freed. Let me see something that suggests that there really has been a resolution of the various Horde vs. Alliance conflicts I saw leveling up. Right now, I don't see it.

Implied chronology, MMO time physics... Just don't mess with it. As soon as you start trrying to justify why some things change as the story progresses when random villain #59 has been killed 84362 times and yet is still at large your head will explode.
