"You roll Alliance, you play the ROLE of a hated enemy of the horde, you roll Horde, you play the ROLE of an enemy of the alliance...If you can stroll past your hated enemy, wave, and just keep on picking flowers, then where did the Role-playing' go? "-----I hear this one all the time from people who don't actually get the lore. There -is- a peace treaty. It's tenuous, which is the lore reason for us not being able to do things like talk to each other, and there's the occasional skirmish (quite well acted-out through quests). But there's a peace treaty. Jaina let her own father die at the hands of the Horde to preserve it. Our two factions have been working together against the Burning Legion and the Lich King for years now.You know what -isn't- RP? Going along my merry way riding through somewhere to try to turn in a quest, getting stun-locked out of nowhere, and getting teabagged by a rogue.You keep roleplaying your teabag-laden war. I'll keep roleplaying my lore-backed peace treaty. :)
