I agree. While I wouldn't want to go back to the bad old days, I feel that the LFG tool has introduced a whole new level of anonymity to this game. I might as well be grouping with NPC's for all the interactions that I see in 5-man's. Except that with NPC's you get consistent results and no chance of being jerked around. This is supposed to be a social game, yet, I have never played an online game where it's so difficult to make any kind of lasting social contact. Everyone is intent on doing his/her thing, and groups will never last longer that strictly necessary. I started playing online games back in the old Meridian 59 days. I then played, Ultima Online, and Everquest. All of these games appeared truly social to me. I made tons of online friends, seemingly effortlessly. In WoW, it's like pulling teeth. Maybe it's a small town/big city type of thing.
