Cross-faction on TrueWoW?

#1 » Post by Gnurg » 29 Nov 2016 20:27

Over on PrimalWoW they've had cross-faction for a while now and it appears to be working out fine. They manage to run 40 man raids daily (often multiple at the same time), which is quite impressive considering they've overall had a lower population than TrueWoW. I can admit that people, of different faction, do get along better over on PW, but I believe the players on TW would eventually grow to enjoy each other's company.

I think (not sure!) you only have to change one setting in the server's config file to enable/disable cross-faction.

What would cross-faction imply? *You can choose from this list, you don't need all.
  • Chat would be understandable by all factions (maybe only channels and group channels, not /say)
  • You could form groups with members of all factions, allowing for cross-faction raids
  • Cross-faction RDF
  • Guilds can have members of all factions
What would it not imply? Some problems?
  • Vault of Archavon has conditions for the Alliance/Horde loot, how would these work if there were both Horde and Alliance in the group]?
  • Trial of the Champion/Crusader has an Alliance and Horde version of an encounter. How would this work? Remove ToCh from RHC?
The big question: Can you leave behind the grudge of the other faction, to make room for a greater PvE (and maybe PvP?) environment? Reminder: You can always choose to /ignore players you find very disturbing.

Note from the Staff: As mentioned in "What would it NOT imply?" This suggestion does NOT include crossfaction PvP (NO crossfaction bgs, NO crossfaction arenas... NO crossfaction PvP).

If you guys think this would ''save'' pvp on TW or TW in general I have nothing against it :tick:

It's better than sitting bored in RBG / RDF queue or without any raids.
It was working out fine on OmegaWoW and kept PvP and PvE going until Maestro decided to pull the plug due to funding.
If it comes to choosing between Roel pulling the plug or TW having xfaction, I'd rather have the latter.

Cross-faction battlegrounds are currently not supported (viewtopic.php?f=78&t=16347)
Battle for Wintergrasp - same reason as bgs
For now, there won't be any cross-faction battlegrounds, but this would be the first step in that direction.

Even before this suggestion, cross-faction rdf below 80 was something I strongly considered lately. So yeah, that's also something we should be discussing.

Are the points I presented in the first post right? Something I forgot?

It should be made clear what it would imply enabling cross faction.

The three first points are not dependent on each other directly, you can have cross faction RDF without cross faction raids, you can have crossfaction /group but not world channel etc, guild also not dependent on any of the other points. Crossfaction arena team not possible (haven't looked on it being feasible to implement yet).

VoA... screwed, completely. It checks for faction control, so we would need to disable that...

As for ToCh, vehicles would bug, but we just need to make both of them spawn. It wouldn't be a big deal.

Don't say that, or they are gonna start twitching and seizing.

Anyway, on topic: I agree with Nyeriah. Cross-faction rdf below 80 is an excellent idea. I support that one.
