Thank you for this one AlisonI've never been able to explain to my GF why or how I know so many people on the server when they are not in my guild. It's because of the rep they had and the rep that I had. I, being a hunter from the days of hunters being told to never have their pet out, realized quickly that all I had was my name so I focused on keeping it in good light. Your article has reminded me of why I didn't like playing Diablo2 online. It felt impersonal, I didnt like the "lobby" style of community as it felt less involving to me and your article has shown me that the LFD tool essentially transforms the wow community into that. I also believe that the current state of affairs is the reason some guilds, including my own, have such a hard time recruiting new blood. Even guild to guild rep is gone. The only thing unique to your server now is your auction house (imagine the day Blizz decides to merge those too, i think that would be my que to finally leave) Power guilds are irrelevant now in terms of their name. While yes, the game is more accessible now and i AM grateful for this as it allowed my GF to actually start playing, I do long for the days where "rep" mattered on your server. But, I guess we can't have our cake AND eat it too huh?
