Blizzcon 2017 – Does Battle for Azeroth make sense after Legion?

Blizzcon has wrapped up for another 12 months, and for the first time in 4 years, we’ve had a Blizzcon expansion announcement!

Battle for Azeroth looks to bring the game back to its classic roots, pitching the Horde and the Alliance into an all out war harkening back to the conflict that birthed the franchise some 20+ years ago in Warcraft 1: Orcs v Humans.

However the base premise of the expansion seems to me to be somewhat forced to say the least. For the duration of Legion the emphasis has been on our Class Order halls. These were Sanctuary spaces where players of each class could, if not interact (still a dumb design decision), at least exist in the same space in a more friendly manner.

Now, all of a sudden that sense of class pride and cross-factional co-operation and camaraderie is being thrown under the bus for the sake of ice cream?
