As a Tank/Heal paladin I don't get to see the other side of the story where the tanks and healers are the ones throwing the mud around. It's true that everyone can be rude and because of that it can be hard for players new to their chosen role to get a foothold in the tank/heal niche. The call to arms system will only lure in more un-fit players and failing that only keep the skilled players for a short time , once they get what they want they will disappear into the fog. if this system is to work at all then the rewards will have to be consumable or not be a one time learn/ acquire vanity mounts that any level 85 can get on their own. given the choice between being yelled at while I farm the Raven Lord and taking a quiet 10 minute solo run i pick the latter. Even heaps of gold will only work for so long or maybe rewards you cant conventionally get in-game like store purchases or other redeemable items will do, and cause the system to work a lot better, but we know blizzard is greedy and won't go for that anytime soon. If I am queuing for randoms to basically give some DPS his moneys worth then I expect a decent reward that will keep me coming back. Even if the rewards are fantastic we are bribing people to run randoms with strangers and tanks and healers will not like the feeling of being used.

If you don't want to tank, don't tank. I shall be chain running my three, soon to be four, tanks for the honor points.
