Er....while I somewhat agree with what you've said here, most of your "solutions" are just the drudgery that made games like EQ terrible. Things like death penalties and forced PvP in raids (actual PvP, not things like champs or gunship) aren't what the WoW community has been bred to enjoy, in fact we've been bred to be thrilled that we don't have those things. It's all fine and dandy when you think, 'Woah I'm out on my own and I really don't want to die because there's a cost!" but I'd be throwing a few curses at the game if on the 10th wipe of a hard progression boss we had to call it quits, not because we ran out of guild flasks or repairs for the night, but because our main tank and 5 healers just lost a level. That said, I do miss how I used to friend people I thought were good tanks so that I could invite them on future heroic runs. My server has a private pug channel and while there were trolls, decent groups were actually made in it quite often. These days it's become nothing but "LFM ICC 25 GDKP, 5.8k GS or 5k gold required!"

Let it never be said that there aren't players who want the game to be MORE grindy and frustrating.
