WoW Classic https://i.imgur.com/38HZIVn.png

I found this really wierd WoW Map made in 1999.

Kalimdor looks incredibly small.
Ulduar huge and uninstanced.
Also, it also looks like they had plans for 3 factions (Blue, Red, Green).

Maybe third faction was the ‘scourge’ like in warcraft 3, in which scourhe/burning legion were not in the horde and were just an external factiom entirely that both ally/horde had to fight.

Maybe they decided after that to just change undead to horde to simplify or save dev time, or to make the factions binary.

I don’t think this is from anyone on the dev team tbh - maps of kalimdor and eastern kingdoms existed already on warcraft 3 loading screens and were the same proportions as they are in wow...

Warcraft 3 came out in 2002 if iam not mistaken.
This map is from 3 years before that.

Interesting idea to have Northrend in there at the start.

I remember hearing somewhere that they intended to have three factions originally, but logistically it didn't work out as well as two, so they scrapped it.

Blue is Alliance
Green is Horde (green for Orcs)
Red is Enemy Territory

For the Alliance:
H means Human
D means Dwarf
HE means High Elf

For the Horde:
O means Orc
T means Troll
G means Goblin
NE means Night Elf (imagined to be an edgy/evil race at this time, more like the Drow they are based on)

Enemy factions:
DE means Demons
NA means Naga
U means Undead (Scourge)
