I stand by my comment last week. Thanks for the mention, by the way! I really respect your articles so it's extremely flattering.As it stands right now. CtA feels like nothing more than largely a great big band-aid on a problem with no real solution under the current way the game is run. Especially the fact that you have to queue alone. Perhaps that's also a way to cut down on the queue-selling that's been going on?The problem right now is the general attitude and behavior of the playerbase that uses the RDF. The ones who act as though they're doing the dungeon with 4 NPCs. Until the players who are acting up realize that the change needs to come from within the system, not from Blizzard, nothing will change. I love tanking, it's one of my favorite things to do in this game. I also usually do several randoms a night. But I don't tank for them unless the group is a good majority of guildies. It's just too much stress.I really think that, at this point, server-only randoms are the best solution. It brings back accountability, and that will swiftly reign in the misbehavior when there's actual consequences to it. When you recognize the people you're grouped with, you're much less likely to mistreat them.And frankly, if there are a greater percentage of tanks queuing, even if the pool is smaller numerically, queues will likely be shorter. It sucks right now that the queue time disparity is so great. But really, the community as a whole did it to themselves, and the community as a whole has to change to solve it.
