Now this is a bit of stretch armstrong here, I grant you. But the idea that the leak (which may by all accounts be fake and technically a repost) has me thinking about the wording regarding the pre-order AR bonus. Dracs are going to be like Pandaren, as in a singular race for both factions. Why not a similar statured, reptilian neutral Allied Race?
Probably all hogwash, but BFA gave Sethrak the potential to lean either way regarding faction of choice. The twisted, warmongering brethren may have created tension with the Vulpera, but the Horde has good relations with their prime leaders that were further supplemented by the aid of the Zandalari.
The Alliance did try to stir further tension, but they also did help the Sethrak as well. But who they would side with is irrelevant if they decided to stay neutral. Especially with the direction of the game being focused on creating a world outside of the faction war in Warcraft.
And if there was a singular AR option that also is fairly body neutral, it wouldn’t be a bad choice.
Like or hate it, it’s just an idea with no real evidence. Correlation =/= causation.
