I too thought that was an excellent idea. I also sort of see it as a bit of a Pandora's box too. Because once they start knocking down too many "invisible" walls between realms, the uniqueness of realms sort of fades away. Each realm currently has it's own guild hierarchy, gold economy via the auction house, etc. If people could tag people through a long enough period through the LFG system, they might start wanting to be able to quest with them, or raid with them too. And I don't necessarily think that the idea of a cross realm raiding guild is -the best- idea, in that it would to a point, detract from, -same realm- guilds. I already sort of feel like to a point LFG goes too far in breaking down realm togetherness. Because it use to be when you had to pug people for heroics, that they were from your own realm. Which was bad if there were no tanks or healers to be found, but was good if you met some really nice people who played on your realm -- because they were your source or point of positive point entry into finding a guild to join.Guild recruitment is suppose to be revamped in the expansion too -- but as it stands now, it's still little more than we need x y or z role, we raid from a to b time, join my guild. It gives you no idea if you'd get along with the type of players in that guild. But I'm going to stop, because I am starting to sound a bit like Grandpa Winter of Wow Past.-----------------I really really loved this article. Very interesting guy. He talked with passion about his subject matter and really gave me food for thought. Well done Cory Doctorow and Well down Wow.com!!
