    I'll do you one better.

    There should be a Group Finder for FREE carries.

    I will explain. When players wishing to be carried, they queue into the desired instance. They can then be grouped up with a group of say, 9 players wishing to carry the 1 player. The 9 players are rewarded handsomely with let's say, gold and in-game currency. Call it a Good Samaritans rewards, and the player that gets carried gets to reap the rewards and achievements like gear and mounts that comes with not having to do anything, and sip Mountain Dew while the 9 experienced players do the hard work.

    Now all you need to do is explain how you would enforce this.

    Agreed. I believe there are still a lot of great players out there who do it the right way. There are just some players who want to short cut it all and hopefully they will stay the exception, not the rule.

    Yea, this convenience is crazy.

    You should send them some videos on how you grow, prepare, and cook all your own food as opposed to all these crazy people that earn a currency one way and use it to be lazy and still eat good food.

    Only the people that grow, prepare, and cook their own food should get to enjoy it.

    I hate that other people get to find a way to enjoy good food by buying it with currency they earned from something unrelated to food.

    It's a sick world.

    I know right? I think we should also make it so only people who know how to, say, put together fancy cars, can have fancy cars. It'd really make having a fancy car mean something again!

    People have been buying carries since vanilla was current.

    Well yeah. I play on the biggest server there is and it's not bad. In fact we have the cheapest prices on almost everything.a healthy economy is far better than the dead economies where everything is overpriced. Global AH would do this.

    1. You cannot pick who you play with in pugs. It is decided via automated match maker.
    2. Scrap the weekly chest and use the badge system again.

    It would not be as fun but people would no longer sell carries.

    I also wonder what would happen if they brought back MoP style Challenge Mode Dungeons today, AFTER the population has now been fully exposed to m+. Maybe they would do them now.

    They don't even bother filtering the descriptions for groups. There are RMT websites posted there 24/7 with the groups being listed for more than a day in some cases, the probably just mute the accounts for like an hour when people report them and dont even bother banning them. The weird part is that these people are technically taking money away from blizzard as the people that would go to those links could otherwise be buying tokens from them. Its amazing how they were talking about using machine learning to fight extremely toxic people in overwatch but can't filter a text field in LFG.

    Here's a better idea, win/win for everyone. Blizzard sets up an in-game mkt place for M+ and Arena carries and they charge a 20% transaction fee to both parties.
    Yep! My idea is insanely dumb, but I came up with it just so you'd understand exactly how moronic your idea is.

    So just to be clear, you want to completely remove the ability to form our own groups for M+, and make it 100% automated matchmaking.............yeah..............im sure every m+ team and guild would TOTALLY get behind that idea................Talk about the cure being worse than the disease.

    In the history of bad ideas, this is a VERY strong contender for a podium finish.

    It'll work great for the buyers. Which is good. But unless every single item for sale function like WoW-tokens with automatically adjusting prices and a queue system, people won't care to try to sell anything because of the AH-masters who has made TSM their full-time job.

    What the actual fuck? :-D I have seen a lot of strange ideas but to combat boost runs you want to make it so that NOBODY can play with their friends.

    The thing is: those AH-masters do not produce anything themselves. Everything you buy from them was sold to them by a normal player. The only reason for you not to sell stuff is when you produce more than there is demand for it.

    What stops them from buying cheaper through local trade?

    Why? If you can sell a weekly mythic nzoth to 2 buyers, you can get enough for a spider mount for every raid in 4 resets or so. And that's on top of having a regular job, and doing your weekly clear/playing with friends. Where is the logic in not selling a boost? Or should I go work 10 hours/day instead? I am sorry but I am not a masochist.
