With the football world cup approaching quickly, nations around the globe get hyped up in a frenzy, waving flags, painting their faces in national colours and generally acting crazy.

In contrast to that, the rather serene atmosphere of Azeroth, where everybody is waiting for something big to happen, something Cataclysmic. Now imagine: What if, instead of laying waste to two continents, Deathwing actually came up and said "Let's determine which race of Azeroth is best once and for all - by having the World Cup of Warcraft!"

Faction rivalries are set aside, each race is on it's own, supporters are flooding to the capitals and embarking in ships to see their teams play.

Which race would win the Cup, and how?
Which crowd favourite dark horse would face them in the finals?
Which seemingly unbeatable team gets sent home after a devastating and surprising defeat in the first round?


Note: For fluff reasons you may include Worgen, Goblins, Murlocs, Dark Irons, Gnolls and whatever else seems to make up a large enough demographic while being reasonably intelligent.

Not to clog the topic with asinine commentary, but this is really a very imaginative topic! Great job :)

I wasn't (before this shared topic) a huge footballer. Now, since doing the research and expanding my horizons, I've come up with this post for the weekly topic.

I'm not 100% on topic, but I feel like I'm in the spirit of the topic-share and am most certainly inspired by it. While I started the week cursing this topic, I'm now very glad I participated.

Probably my longest post to date: http://primetimecasual.wordpress.com/20 ... ay-by-play

And now, back to watching the world-cup! And possible beating some heads in with Vuvuzelas, that would still be more pleasant than listening to them for 90 minutes...

This is going to be a multiparter, but here's Round 1, with audience participation welcome to decide round 2.
