I personally don't want to see much more retooling of the current LFG system -- I think it went from bad, to worse, to less bad. The only reason the global LFG chat failed was because everyone decided to ruin it by filling it up with idiotic "forum chat." Regardless, I still found most of my groups in LFG channel far quicker than the LFG tool.I think cross-realm partying would be great -- especially for people who play at odd times or just can't find groups. Take the epic Warlock quest, pugs do NOT run Scholomance or Dire Maul anymore. So getting your epic mount, if you don't have a guild to help you, can take weeks and weeks of just waiting to find a group -- at which point you'll get to 61 and technically can't even queue for those instances anymore.Up side to X-realm instances -- more groups, more loot, less time going solo. Down side to X-realm instance -- more instance server instability, probably some extra ninja looting -- which I doubt would be much different from regular ninja looting, just post a typical ninja screenshot on the Battlegroup forum (or your's and their realm forums), which would get a lot more use if this were opened up. But I just have more faith -- feeling that people would rather have more chances to get their own loot and quests done than having the chance to steal others' and then disappear. Chances are you WILL see that person again if you're all in the same level range for the next month or so.Maybe it wouldn't work -- but my problem is I spend too much time waiting for an instance group to materialize. It'd be nice to just have a check box for "xrealm" or "home realm." So if you want to risk the supposed troubles of xrealm, it's your choice.
