Well, the "of Lordaeron" in the Alliance of Lordaeron has not been directly related to the kingdom of Lordaeron, at least if the game the term comes from (Warcraft II) has any say in this, but to the...

Having three completely separate hard factions seems unfeasible. The playerbase is already divided as it is, plus numerous balancing issues do not help either. However, if it was done as with for...

That's why I feel Lordaeron and Quel'thalas would have worked the least as the starting setting, it simply seems more suited for patch/expansion content.

However, I need to elaborate upon...

To be frank, I've always felt that Lordaeron and Quel'thalas works the least of the three possible options (Kalimdor, Lordaeron and Quel'thalas, Azeroth and Khaz Modan), at least if the hypothetical...

I wholly agree with your conclusion, but at the same time, I feel a large portion of the fandom have long formed this opinion that Azeroth is an idealistic and morally driven world, even though I'd...

That'd certainly work for a single-player RPG, but I am not so sure about an MMORPG.

The map is as little as it is because for a larger scale, they'd either need to use procedural generation (an idea they were toying with at one point) or focus on a smaller area*, as with the...

The Art of Warcraft's lore section was very absolute in its wording that the men are the druids and the women are the warriors, leaving little space for anything else. Of course, like Aldrius alluded...
