It's no secret the faction balance hasn't been, well, balanced for a long time now. As we seem to be fast approaching a serious conversation about cross-faction content (with even the Game Director recently addressing it), it's very important to keep this - one of the largest issues in WoW currently - in the spotlight for as long as we can.
To that end we have the GM of Consequence talking on behalf of the majority of the top US Alliance guilds, going over the details of the giant divide in Horde vs. Alliance and where it might be leading. From recruitment which is constantly worsening and headed towards a 1-faction situation, to the Alliance incentives put in place so far not working (as we've had around 12 Alliance guilds in the Hall of Fame when Horde hit 100 for several raids now, and HoF slots are even being sold by boosters on the Alliance side) and more, let's take a look at what this experienced GM has to say:
As the faction divide widens ever further in both retail and Classic, players keep asking for some degree of cross-faction grouping, and with the recent improvements Blizzard is bringing to the game in patch 9.1.5, it may not be impossible after all. If we're to assume something along these lines is coming, it's definitely a bigger project than a .5 patch can handle. So then the question becomes whether this might be a new expansion feature, or if there's actually hope to see at least a partial solution in 9.2?
The main thing here is that we want as much communication on the subject as possible, both from players continuing to push the issue and make it very clear that the game cannot remain in this state, and with Blizzard talking to us about what they're considering and whether there is a timeframe for change even in place.
