That the fraction boundaries are dissolved in World of Warcraft, is already a while for discussion . Now the developers make serious and want to test fractional gameplay . Then Horde and Alliance players can play together in dungeons, battles and in the evaluated PVP.

For two decades, code and content were developed under the assumption that fractions can only consist of players of a single group, and although the developers want to provide this feature as soon as possible, the extent of the change means that they are not timely For the upcoming content update patch 9.2 the end of eternity can be done .

Cross-Faction GROUPING Coming in Patch 9.2.5 - Everything We Know | Shadowlands

  • Focus on organized instanced gameplay. Dungeons, battles and evaluated PVP are the focus the most convincing arguments for the lifting of the fractional cleavage.
  • It should be as far as possible to an opt-in feature. As for the preferences of the players, there are decades of hostilities to overcome. The developers are pleased to provide the players the opportunity to work together through the faction boundaries to defeat common enemies, but they also know that many players will react to this change with skepticism, and they do not want these preferences Hide. It’s about providing players more options.

These guidelines lead to the following system

Players will be able to invite members of the opposing faction directly to a group , If you have a BattleTag or a real ID friendship or if you are members of a cross-border WOW community.

Prefabricated groups in the group finder for mythical dungeons, slaughter trains or rated arenas / RBGs are open for applicants of both factions n, although the group leader can limit the listing to applicants of the same faction if he wishes it. Guilds will continue to belong to only one faction , and random activities such as heroic dungeons or random battlefields will continue to belong to only one faction (for each other, because there are less fraction for random groups, and on the other to avoid that one Ork, which stands in the queue, randomly inserted into a group with a night elf and thus endanger the opt-in nature of the feature).
