I mean, one dream of mine back in the old days was that as the Cold War shifted around that we’d eventually have ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ spots around the World and that based on that Horde and Alliance could even operate more openly with each other.
Like I always imagined places like Theramore and Freewind Post could be “Faction Leaning” places, but were open / non-hostile to the other faction. Though the main bug-bear in the old days were the fact that there were pvp servers, and anything that wasn’t true neutral might feel a bit weird in.
Now a days though, with Warmode, and Sanctuary designations, it should in theory be easy to make towns that are part of one faction, but open to the other should be fairly straightforward.
It would have been nice to see Horde and Alliance towns that were open to each other. While the towns would be relatively rare, could have been a very interesting direction to let the Alliance and Horde try questing in an area that was distinctly the other faction, but friendly.
