    We had the exact same arguments used at the time when RDF was implemented.
    And we already know the actual, real-life results that it had, and how Classic was a massive success bringing back the original vision.

    So all the bullshit rationalization you can throw has been disproved by experience. Just shut up and go back playing retail if you want automated grouping.

    Also sense you seem to have difficulty with reading...I've said 3 times now what Ion said was not a reasoning behind why they're not adding it into Wrath...he is saying if you want it you can go play retail, which is again for the how many ever times I've said this, an unreasonable response.
    I don't have an issue reading so much as you seem to have comprehending. Ion's comments came after a segue, "let's talk changes" where each of the three lead devs give reasoning why they're not adding the RDF. You can feel Ion's words are unreasonable but that does not mean that this wasn't, quite literally, a reason provided by WoW's lead designer for not adding the RDF to the game.

    Holy shit. I'm agreeing with you? I guess it's true: You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the enemy.

    It's called "growing up"

    It seems you're the one who is having trouble comprehending (this whole thing we're doing is kinda getting old). Ion's comments were in response to what Longdale and Hight were saying about the community and it's interactions. Ion in fact never once said the reason they were leaving it out of Wrath is because we have it in Retail. Ion is simple saying you can go play Retail if you want RDF or systems like it. I'm saying that this response is an unreasonable response for people who would like to play Wrath with RDF included. Like it's quite literally not stated anywhere that the reason they are not adding RDF in Wrath is because you can go play Retail.

    Good thing that they won't have RDF that extra social interaction /w inv plz makes everything different

    The fact it teleports you into the instance is such a small issue with the existence of flying and summoning. The proposed LFG tool doesn't fix any of the issues that RDF solves nor does it help foster "social interactions".

    These are none issues in Wrath Classic, RDF on it's own is a fantastic tool that solves a major issue with older and irrelevant content.
    You can always talk if you want to.
    It's great that it's not mandatory, that way you can use the many asshats that WoW's playerbase is rich in without too much inconvenience.

    I don't get why people think mandatory social interaction is in any way positive, it seems to me like these people are apparantly avoided by others for some reason when people aren't forced to interact with them.


    Additionally i've found that the current m+ tool has much the same effect, just lacking some of the convenience; people assume you know the way, the tactics and all the shortcuts even if it's your first time and only speak to whine when you don't (i don't really feel obligated to prepare these things for near trivial difficulty content, and do not mind causing the rare wipe when i fail to learn something on the go)

    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    Wrath dungeons are insanely easy - the moment when a system causes u to spend as much or more time preparing to put a group together than the activity itself, thats when you know its a garbage system.

    Relapses finally on the good side of WoW history.
    The absolute state of Warcraft lore in 2021:
    Kyrians: We need to keep chucking people into the Maw because it's our job.
    Also Kyrians: Why is the Maw growing stronger despite all our efforts?

    People are asshats within a server or in cross realm. LFD only "changed" your perception because you ran more dungeons
    Looks like i found the asshat.

    Our guild had a banlist and we changed info with other guilds who we worked with. Could be that we only worked with those who spoke the same language so we had more tight knit community. You messed around with the big guilds and you were made a pariah

    Also this was a time when you had to make a written aplication to get in to the raiding guilds as a trial.

    Hmm if people rep was such a big concern you'd think people would be screaming about paid names changes more than RDF, even with RDF you could have a list of people that were jerks and if you seen them pop up in a RDF run drop group or kick them if you queued with enough people. (this is about dungeons so raids really don't matter).

    I feel this is just another example of them knowing best. Then we get to see the sad reversal sometime down the road with the follow up of "we will do a better job of listening to feedback" type of line. All the people trolling and shilling for RFDs removal will be queing up the same day they put it back in like they always wanted it. Over all a rather silly argument for them to make that it kills server communities.
    Eh? Have you heard of M+? Ever wondered why it doesn't teleport you to the dungeon? CMs started this, literally 1.5 expansions after RDF was introduced. Just like how they've been trying to make flying less anti-MMO since it came: once the toy is given, it's hard to take it back.

    There's no proof to be made whether RDF destroyed the social aspect or it would have happened anyway.

    I think Blizzard is delusional that not including it will have this massive effect on socialization, because the community has changed a lot ... people no longer log in to have a good time, it's all about numbers, efficiency, speed, which I believe is the main reason why some complain anyway.

    The very similar group finder tool works just fine for M+ in retail but somehow in classic the sky is falling. There is a bit of truth here because of the unbelievable spam that TBC and the latter part of classic had, that basically forced people into filtering addons to be able to read the relevant info.

    Truth is, the game is fine both without it and with it and both options bring pros and cons, it's not all sunshine and butterflies with either of them. If Blizzard wants to give it a shot without it, then so be it, it wasn't a part of half of WotLK anyway, we'll see how it goes.

    RDF is a symptom of the disease called cross realm groups. They did those so they didnt need to give attention to the low population servers. Rather than merging servers they threw a poisoned bandaid on the problem.

    Id be fine with server bound rdf

    This is some "I reject your reality and substitute my own" levels of semantic coping but I don't really care to continue this any further. I don't think you even realized that this information was in the reveal trailer at first because you kept referring to "a post" but whatever.

    You can maybe see RDF as a "break glass in case of emergency" back-up plan for WotLK Classic but I honestly think it'll be fine without it. If you enter negativity echo chambers like this forum or Reddit you'll see a lot of backlash but I think the general Classic public is a lot more ambivalent than you'd be lead to believe if this is your only exposure to the community.

    Of that I'm sure, proof to that is how absolutely not a single person in my guild acted like the world is ending. The worst reaction I've seen so far was "Ah, would have been nice to have it, whatever". Meanwhile if you access the forums ... the world is burning, 90% of the people are quitting etc.

    if they fixed the faction imbalanced servers\low servers that would not be too bad but on some servers one side of the faction is so bad there is barely enough to form groups at max level and near impossible at lower levels, still with a easy paid way out you're not getting rid of the assholes, name changes and faction\server changes are just as damaging (it just makes blizzard money so they allow it).

    Perhaps consider working on your toxicity, given how many other people make friends when you struggle to.

    But here's a fun fact.. people who started playing WoW at release who were 18... are now at or approaching 36 now. The game has been out for half their lives at this point. These people have graduated high school, gotten a degree, maybe pursued a Masters/PhD, started careers, gotten married and started families, or any number of life changes that affects their ability to play. DO you think Blizzard is going to tell those people "Well, life changed and we don't really care, so if you can't play like you did when you were 18 too bad, so sad." and ignore them? No.

    The decline in the "social" aspect of the game has nothing to do with LFD, LFR, etc. and everything to do with the players. They want to place the blame on their lack of effort on Blizzard rather than looking in the mirror and blaming the real culprit... themselves.
    How dare current 18 yr olds get to experience what we experience at 18! They must change it to focus on 36 years olds!

    One time I went to a pizza place and saw someone eating pineapple on pizza. That's disgusting so they should take it off the menu and no one should be allowed to eat it if they like it.

    Then maybe then they should release it just like they did the first time around if they want the same experience?
