    Blizzard removed every single elite quest from the game and then increased exp for normal quests removing any need for group interaction

    Seems like everything they change moves it away from a MMO and closer to a FPS. There is ZERO reason to ever group while leveling. Because of LFR there really isnt even any need to join a raiding guild. They can fix all of this by pulling the MMO back into MMORPG. Make community matter. Make it so terrible rude ninja looting asshole who AFK during LFR arent rewarded. Make it so you need to group up while leveling to finish certain quests. Epics should be EPIC and require raids to get. Not simply hitting up LFD for some wellfare gear.

    I think its more social now. You can still make friends with random people (I know I have) and do a bunch of stuff together. The thing is now you are not forced to socialize in order to do stuff. However with sites like Openraid we are able to communicate with people from other servers and do dungeons, raids and pvp together. Also the whole Connected Realms and CRZ has added to a bigger community. Barriers such as realms are also being brought down, I can totally make a party with my friend on Y server and and do quests or WPvP.

    "Toxic community", "terrible rude ninja looting asshole" and "welfare gear" in the same train of logic...

    I, for one, am thankful not to be forced to interact with people like you in order to get fun out of the game. If anything, it makes the game more "social" for me.

    The thing is that probably no one will be forced to revisit the "ground mount zones" unless you want to.
    Much like Timeless Isle, you only go there if you like it or want to. People are not forced to go there unless they really want to be there.

    You always have the choice of playing "solo WoW" in a capital city queueing for content all day.
    i dont see why people are forced to do it, am i missing something? :S

    It is, if you want it to be. If you'd rather sit in an LFR/LFD/BG and not say a word to any person at any time, then it's you whose anti social, not the game. If you try to hit up a conversation with people you meet, people in the guild you join etc, you'll find that the game is still pretty social.

    Flying mounts had nothing to do with it. Having to AFK on a flight path for 10 minutes to get to Scholo from IF didn't make you more social.

    Raid Finder really killed the social aspect of it, for me. Trade channel pugs used to be pretty awesome in WOTLK, and could down at least a few bosses for some good Normal gear. Now your alts are stuck with crappy LFR gear while you spam them for the cloak items, hoping to get another orange cape so you can maybe join that pug doing normals asking for 550+ cloak. Flex is a step in the right direction at least.

    Yeah. You are missing a key concept. I never said anything about any of that. That is just the same response you seem to parrot in every thread you are in. My point is:

    If Blizzard makes something a standard, I will play it to that standard. If the player wants to make something THEIR standard, I will kindly remind them that this is not their MMO to play God with. I get it. You hate flying mounts. What YOU seem to not get is that others actually enjoy them. If there is NO FLYING in Draenor, I will accept it because that is the playstyle set forth by Blizzard, not by you.
