Something else (post in comments)
Probably LFG, but it was completely worth it though. Only a tiny part of the actual population was part of the fabled 'community' to begin with.
My last guild recently disbanded and I had to server transfer to a guild who recruited me via wowprogress private msg.
Most people do not realize the talent and skill it requires to be in a top guild. Many of you think its only about time invested, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
blizzards catering to casuals. (not casuals themselves) blizz always have a choise. but since they're a company they go for the money.
You will also notice that LFR players aren't asking (beside a couple of trolls perhaps) to remove normal and heroic raiding. On the other hand, some "medicores" are asking for LFR removal.

Create a guild
To have no problems when creating a group for dungeons or raids
Being nice and likable pays off.
And now please don't come at me like I was faking being nice. Cause thats rediculous. Point is I had also had a goal with My reputation. It helped me a lot for many years.
You could perfectly summarize it in one definition:
The thing that hurt the community (and therefore the game) the most was introducing features that reduced the already present anonymity of WoW pre-3.0 and tried to please the "new type of player" that grew up with instant-gratification games where you get 20 achievements for pressing a random button and post it to your 5000 "friends" etc...
It includes but is not limited to:
- removing the smooth progression curve and later on almost removing progression past max level entirely and letting players jump into top tier immediately because they screamed for it.
