Well, all I know is where vanilla wow was harsh on pugs, BC is ridiculously unforgiving. Boss encounters require tons of coordination, as well as each member of the group knowing what to do. Any one member of a party that sucks makes a dramatic impact now, whereas pre-bc you could still get by with even 2 or 3 bad players in your group. The other major factor I see is that solo-leveling to 70 requires players to spec a certain way, and that usually precludes being successful in 5 mans. Warriors tend to not be prot, healers tend to not be resto/holy, and many rogues don't have imp sap. Who can blame these people really? Are you going to gimp your leveling just to perform well in pugs? For this reason, I tend to like druid tanks in pugs, because they are probably specced feral for leveling anyway, which also helps them tank. Sorry warriors.
