I think take the cross server part of LFD away, and many issues are solved,yes you will be queuing from a smaller pool, but if your attitude is bad then you soon get a name on your server and generally guilds dont like getting bad names from their members.I heal mainspec now, and I have no interest in LFD, its not worth the hassle for the points or any loot blizz can come up with. I actually dont see that many bad dps to be honest, yes there are some, but not the majority by a long shot. I see many many bad tanks, chain pulling, no cc, no marking, blaming everyone around them, they think they are special I guess and everyone is just there to support them.So the new bribe approach is not going to work on the good tanks, as they will be raiding and well geared, and lets face it they just don't need to LFD they can guild run, but it will encourage the bad tanks that are just in it for the loot and couldn't care less about tanking as a role. Even more reason to put off the healers and even the DPS.The only way to fix stuff, is if the actions of individuals has consequence. Today the chance of ever meeting the same character in a LFD group is very low, so they can be as bad as they like and there is no consequence. Rating players can be abused, clicking on a 'like' this player for example opens a whole other hornets nest of problems.WoW is a social game, its very hard to play wow without being sociable, so reputation on local servers effects social groups and play, before LFD, using trade or setting your name to be available for grouping, was a pain, but you got to know the people that put together good groups, as they were discerning and you knew you would always get a decent group. If you were known to cause trouble you didnt get picked simple, problem solved, self controlling, self managing.I think I would rather have a little more trouble to make groups but have higher quality groups, than making it easy but the majority are just bad experiences.I also think that the LFD issues are being confused with the general feeling towards Cataclsm by blizzard, I would rather them focus on why many many people are leaving wow or having a break rather than fixing LFD.
