As for the lore concept, I think it's fairly clear:- The Argent folks want to prevent all out war between the Horde and Alliance- Even so, the Horde and Alliance refuse to listen, and their strength is divided in small skirmishes- Therefore, if they refuse to stop fighting, why not make it constructive? I.e. if the Horde and Alliance are fighting in an arena, there are no actual deaths, and possibly the two sides can come to some accord, or at least respect one another enough to join against Arthas.Plus, this is basically just a big slap in the face to Arthas, having the tournament right on his doorstep, knowing that if he tries anything, the best of the Horde and Alliance are just waiting there to fight him. If anything, the Argent forces appear to be using us as bait. They obviously don't seem to want to assault Icecrown Citadel directly; Arthas is probably at his most powerful when sitting on the Frozen Throne. - Therefore, if they refuse to stop fighting, why not make it constructive?
