i dont think that was the exact point he was trying to make in the article. your fury is misplaced. i think the author was referring more to the intrinsic feeling of accomplishment a tank felt and that was perpetuated across a realm through establishing reliable reputations when forming random 5mans for instance runs; back when you spammed trade chat "LF 1Tank 1Heals 4 random".The article is insightful i thought; especially as it highlights the nature of relationships between 'strangers' and the need for constructive collaboration in the absence of consequence for callow behaviour. It doesn't seem to be enough that 5 people 'share' the goal of completing an instance and the 'bribe' that blizzard is using to incentivize tank LFD tanks doesn't really address the core issue here. The issue is that if your reputation is involved, you'd have a higher commitment to responsible and altruistic play (if you care about your reputation that is)... anyway.... sometimes i despair for humanity.
