A very well written perspective.As to your analysis, I would fall under the 'professional tank'. I don't raid, because simply put, I have no interest in it.So I spend my life dwelling 5 man heroic dungeons. I've got all the gear I need (drops-rep-crafted). The CTA is not an incentive at all to get me to tank in the LFD.When I use the LFD tool, I always do so with my brother and/or a friend (DPS). Why on earth would I queue solo?Yes, the CTA system will introduce a lot of new players to the tanking game, players with access to an offspec. Remember these are the same people who have access to the offspec, but are not using it. Because they don't like to tank.So now you will get these people into your group as a tank. More tanks with DPS gear anyone? You thought it was bad before? Wait and see ... The 'good' tanks, the 'professionals' ... they are already out there, tanking with/for their friends/guilds.When patch 4.1 hits, they'll be busy with the new troll dungeons. As for that void? The shortage of tanks? That will be filled with people who don't like to tank, but want fast queues and a goodiebag.
