Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft “Face Off” Over “Revenge of the Horde” Title

on April 29, 2016 4:48 PM

Today Square Enix revealed the title (and quite a lot of details) of upcoming Final Fantasy XIV update 3.3, dubbed “Revenge of the Horde.”

Apparently that caught the attention at someone at Blizzard, generating the humorous exchange below.

If you’re one of the four people in the world unfamiliar with the most basic World of Warcraft lore, the “Horde” is one of the main factions of Blizzard’s IP.

That said, Final Fantasy XIV‘s title refers to the Dravanian Horde, which is one of the factions involved in the Dragonsong War, of which the upcoming update will bring the culmination.

Naming shenanigans aside, I’m sorry World of Warcraft, but Derplander in dragoon gear is just way cooler than your orc.
