First, let's be honest - silhouette recognition only matters in PvP, anyway. And to be more specific, only in world PvP and in battlegrounds, since arena can pit you against a team from either faction. The only reason battlegrounds haven't been altered to the same philosophy (for rated battlegrounds) is that the maps are designed as faction vs. faction. Wouldn't it be weird to be an alliance team defending an orc?Honestly, the whole silhouette recognition only matters if you're zoomed way in. From the distance most people set their camera, it's not as significant, and with all the movement and effects flashing around, you have to rely on the other indicators (the red health bar, the sword cursor, the ability to tab target) to locate the threat in time. You're not going to sit there saying, "okay, that's a tauren, that's a forsaken... aha, I see a gnom- wait, no, that's a goblin with a hood..."I'm thrilled they're offering Transmogrification, and if they want to start utilizing bi-factional races, I won't argue.
