    * Worgen – Alliance
    * Goblin – Horde

    I think they should make them available to both sides. Not that it really matters to me by the time this comes out I'll probably be playing SWTOR or DCUO. But I would have more interest in playing a Worgen then a Goblin (If I was still playing when it comes out that is. Not that I am playing atm though :p) but I doubt I would want to go back to playing alliance.

    Worgen look cool... Though I don't play WoW so I guess it doesn't matter.

    nice.
    yeah Worgens were my favorite npc next to murlocs

    This was pretty close to what I thought blizzard should do for their next playable races.. Goblins and Orges. So I got it half right at least XD

    I hope goblins get to use shredders =)

    right now, goblins are a neutral faction and embedded in the lore as such and worgen's i believe "hate" the alliance? im thinking this could happen, but most likely, there's something else to come besides this.

    and for 25 man raids, the breakdown is typically 6-7 healers and 2-4 tanks... depending on the roles these classes can provide, it will become even more difficult to properly account for the contributions of each class. already, 10 mans are always short on priests for instance.

    im wondering how these races would be playable as what character types and what overlap they have with others. hoping they have a Fortitude alternative for raid buffs from the new hero class they're sure to bring along with them

    wow so the goblins finally joined their green skined brethren (the orcs) , I didnt imagine that the werewolf dudes would join the alliance though. Seems kind of odd to me since their probably mindless savages.

    In the description of the Worgen it talks about how evil and demeneted but intellegent savages from another dimension of evil. How the hell do they get them to work for the alliance?

    I thought I heard they werent doing another WoW expansion because of their other secret MMO project. But this does sound neat. I always wondered why the goblins stayed so neutral ;p

    Na they are doing more last I heard they still have 3 expansions planned including Cataclysm

    one that deals with the maelstrom (probably Cataclysm)
    one that deals with the emerald dream
    one that deals with the titans and the old gods

    There was also something said about one on the Draenei home world not to long ago.

    Keep in mind that the first 3 only had any thing said about them before the release of WOW and was more in nature of a leak then any thing annouced from any body official.

    i can see gobs joining horde, but worgen to alliance just doesnt seem right at all....alliane when i think about it are all clean and pure and i just dont see how a wolf man covered in body fur would fit in.

    That's not what the councilor told you at school, but you shouldn't have believed them...
