Why doesn't Blizzard make Pandaria a 3rd faction?

>2nd Pandaren empire declared, Pandaren, Hozen and Jinyu are playable races
>Already has its own continent with barely any threats and doesn't even need to share it with either A or H
>Owns the most fertile farmland on Azeroth, can easily hold its own
>Has several temples training to draw a standing army from, Golden Lotus resumes role as Imperial Guard. Shado-Pan, argueably the single-most disciplined fighters on the planet form the elite core.
>Gives the game a decently logical 3rd faction (100% logical if you compare it to Nu-blizz writing), throws a spanner into a 2-faction war thats already been milked to death and let's face it is what we're gonna keep getting anyway.
Why the fuck don't they do it?

    Pandaren joining The Horde makes little sense. Chen is an outlier like how other factions have Horde associated races that are sympathetic to them. Theres no way a group of zen, peace loving, laidback, nature appreciating individuals would join a faction whos history involves genocide, starting conflicts for no reason, shacking up with undead or people who chop down entire regions of trees to make something as retarded as a "Pleasure Palace." Now lets say you ignore the past...Garrosh tried to murder your leader and your whole species. He invaded the ancestral home of your people and wanted to wipe them out just for existing. That should've been the reddest, fucking flag in existence to bail and leave these self-destructive idiots.

      >Fastforward to Bfa.>Hey rrmember those trolls that invaded your ancestral homeland a few years ago and tried to bring back stone hitler who enslaved your entire race, the freedom from whom forms a major cornerstone in your cultural identity?
      >They're in the horde aswel now! 😀

        I don't even remember any horde pandaren characters commenting on this. You would think it would lead to a short side quest at least, but apparently the Horde pandas didn't mind ar all? This is probably why the shado-pan sided with the Alliance during the fourth war.

          Nothing taught me jumping through hoops and wringing every drop of lore and ideas out of every mention of a faction more than trying to keep a shado-pan rp guild going

      This is legitimately one of the dumbest fucking pieces of fan fiction I've ever read. Solid yikes.

      that paragraph also describes the Alliance

      Alliance and Horde are like the right and the left in the US, both are shitty and corrupt, one side just does a lot better job of deflecting criticism and hiding how shitty they are

        You let 4chan narrate your life enough to draw real world parallels between works of fantasy.

        Ackchully the Alliance is held as a standard for generic good which is why it has substantially dull writing. The "Horde Bias" exists because writers have more room to be creative with a faction that isn't stuck to broad template.

        The last time Blizzard tried to make the Alliance grey, we had Camp Taurajo.

          Blizzard is just terrible at writing period if they think any amount of nuance for a protagonist faction is outright genocide and that Orcs can be "humanized" by not having them in a constant, pitbull tier bloodlust.

    The faction system was garbage from the beginning and they've never managed to improve it in any meaningful way.

    Third Factions are even worse of a concept than 2 factions.
    Didn't work for Secret World and Didn't work for TES Online.
