Great article!It does remind me of a quibble I've had - that every single globe of Azeroth we've ever seen is *wrong*. Consider - they show Northrend up top, but they have Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms stretching all the way to the south pole! Uldum and Stranglethorn are hardly polar - they're equatorial!My theory is that by stretching out the known lands like this, Blizzard hides the fact that they only really occupy about half of one hemisphere. If we saw our little continents in their proper sizes and places, it would become obvious that there's plenty of room for *other* continents on Azeroth - other allies, enemies, and future content patches.That, or their knowledge of geography is abysmal.

OR the globe of azeroth has a high axial tilt, allowing STV and Uldum to face the sun for most of the year, while northrend is in practically no shadow. It'd have to be a very weird orbit/day though, for seasons to remain relatively the same year round.
