Breakfast Topic: There will never be a warrior union

If you saw this week's Ask CDev answers, you saw this particular exchange.
Ask Creative Development - Round IV Answers
SparkysShocker @SparkysShocker: In lore do Warriors have an organization/guild that they group under. Like the Argent Crusade or Ravenholdt?

CDev Response: The warriors of Warcraft lore are typically associated with the armies they have pledged their weapons to, while our warrior heroes (read: the players) are "lone wolves." Someday these fearless combatants might unite under a single banner and form the world's first warrior union, but that remains to be seen.


What this ignores is that, basically, warriors have a union. It's called war. It's baked right into the name. The whole purpose of warriors is to get out there and fight people - we're not about getting together to form a collective. It would never work. Armies? Sure, we'll be in those, but the other army we're about to fight usually has a bunch of warriors in it too, and it would be weird for us if we knew all those guys from our weekly meeting or whatever. The fact that the Cenarion Circle has druids from the Horde and Alliance in it and they kill each other seems weird to us. We don't kill our friends. We kill our enemies.

So no, there will never be a warrior union. If there was, we'd refuse to join it. We're busy killing on another -- it's what we do.
