Would it be World of Warcraft without the Horde and Alliance? Even if they don't need to be in direct conflict, do they need to be for it to be the Warcraft setting?

I've been toying with the idea of streaming some of my WoW playing and taking the time to converse with readers, have fun, and relax.
