But it seems to further dehumanize the characters, no longer even a class, now just a role. I have long though it was a bit rude when people in groups say "The tank has to do X in situation Y" Rather that using some variation of an abbreviation of the name, this action on blizzard's part seems to validate such thinking.

They are not removing your class they are giving you tools to break the set idea in your head that only your class matters and only your own class members understand how to do your job. This is not middle school we all don't have to be a part of a tiny clique. This will encourage communication between groups of poeople with similar interests over-all.

Ah.... Sorry, didn't realize that if I was even slightly vague someone would be so oblivious as to make absurd assumptions and take it upon themselves to explain the even more obvious.Yes, of course they are not removing the classes, but they clearly are reinforcing their idea that homogeneity is king.My point is, enough has already been done to allow people to assume every one can be grouped into overarching categories, why not allow some distinction?My example of parties following blizz's lead in overlooking individuality was not meant as a serious backing to tie warrant to the grounds, again, sorry if I confused you.
