WoW Patch 9.2.5: Horde and Alliance in the same queue for timewalking raids?

WoW: Time Management - how does the story of Nozdormu continue in Dragonflight?  (1)

from Sebastian Glanzer
Horde and Alliance players will end up in the same Timewalking queue on the WoW: Shadowlans patch 9.2.5 PTR. The question arises again: bug or feature? Because queues for dungeons, raids and PvP shouldn’t really be included in cross-faction games.

After we could already see that with a bit of trickery it’s on the PTR for patch 9.2.5 of WoW Shadowlands possible to create cross-faction guildsplayers on the test realm have discovered another crossfaction feature that isn’t supposed to be implemented this way: cross-faction queues for Timewalking raids.

In fact, cross-faction play is limited to instanced content such as raids, dungeons, and PvP, where players can only invite if they have a friendship. The dungeon browser for the LFR or heroic dungeons will not be cross-faction, according to the developers.

Another bug or feature?

WoW content creator MrGM has more cross-faction content on the PTR of Patch 9.2.5 tested and was amazed to find that Horde and Alliance players ended up in the same raid after signing up for a Timewalking raid.

Once again, a rule is broken here that we previously thought the developers would put a stop to here. Anyway, the question arises why Horde and Alliance players can only move into dungeons and battlegrounds after the exchange of data and the normal queues for random dungeons and BGs with the cross-faction play feature are not also mixed.
