3,4, and 5 have the right of it. Most servers are roughly interchangable, and when it comes to player ability, ease of getting groups, and general server culture, they ARE interchangable. The problems this player describes aren't specific to his server. They're universal, the result of a combination of factors too numerous (and debatable) to cover in a reply.The bottom line is this: active instance runs are scarce, GOOD instance runs are almost an impossibility. We're well into the fourth or fifth generation of WoW players. No insult intended, but most of the serious gaming community was on at launch or shortly thereafter, and most of them have quit (and those who haven't linger on in hopes of a resurgence or want of a replacement game). The overwhelming majority of current WoW players have NOT been gamers for long and that does have a direct bearing on average skill level and understanding of group dynamics. Here's a fun poll: ask who's heard of Tribes (not played, just heard of) and who's played Bejewelled. I promise you that the percentages are different than they were even a year ago.Your best bet is the advice that's already been given. Play the numbers: more players, more skilled players (even if the percentage remains low).
