World of Warcraft is a very robust game, and there’s a lot that goes on in it, with very few things being constants. However, one thing that is constant is the faction leaders/kings/warchiefs. It’s these characters that we follow in the main game, and though they’re cool, they can get repetitive at times, especially for those who see them every day. Thus, some World of Warcraft players elect…to change things up.
One WOW player named Blindrush offered a very simple solution, have the players elect/vote for a new leader of the Alliance, and other such groups every few years. Not unlike how the current US Presidential election is done. That way, it not only applies a fresh face to things, but the new leaders can potentially add something more to the game. Also though, it would be cool on a Lore standpoint, as we can learn about the new leaders, and maybe even have quests that focus on them as leaders.
Not surprisingly, a lot of fans were behind this idea, noting that this would be a fresh take on things, and something that Blizzard should consider. However, just as many were for it, others were more cautious, noting that voting at times can be a very tricky thing. If enough players get behind a “bad” candidate, it could turn out badly for all involved. Now yes, Blizzard could balance this by only having good candidates, but that’s still a risk.
Most agree though that though this should happen, Blizzard likely won’t let it happen. What do you think? Should players have the power to vote for leaders in World of Warcraft? Or should it stay as it is now?
