WoW May Allow Horde and Alliance to Raid Together

At a BlizzConline panel, Blizzard responded to a question about faction population balance in World of Warcraft, saying it may be possible that one day Alliance and Horde players will be allowed to raid together. PC Gamer has word on this possible bipartisanship:
During a World of Warcraft Q&A panel as part of BlizzCon 2021, game director Ion Hazzikostas said that, while preserving the rivalry between the two sides is a crucial ingredient in WoW's appeal, concessions could one day be made to let players from different factions do cooperative group activities together like raids or Mythic+ dungeons.

This statement came after Hazzikostas fielded some tough questions from players about the imbalanced player population between factions, as well as frustrations many players have to deal with when their server just isn't as well-populated as others.

"This is something we talk about a tremendous amount," Hazzikostas said. "We know there's a very real problem, particularly at the high end of the raiding and Mythic+ scene."

the story telling went bad when they changed the player from the wandering adventurer exploring a vast and expansive world, whilst there was an underlying unbalance among the factions ...to...BOOM, lord commander general of the Horde, manage the outpost in Outland, you're the warchief's right-hand man (along with the other 4million players)

I actually agree with that. You have a big badge that says you're the chosen one. You wear it outside only to discover that every single person in the world is also the chosen one. It completely derails the fiction. It was better before you were important. It was at it's worst in Legion. You command the hall that defines your class. And when you're there you see a hundred other people who also control the hall. You hold the most powerful weapon in the world, strapped to your back. You step outside and absolutely everyone else has that same weapon strapped to their back.

It's like Sagan's pale blue dot. Instead of the player feeling like a hero, the player feels tiny and irrelevant.
