When I read this article an hour or so ago I agreed with many of the sentiments from players who were nostalgic about the sense of "community" that the RDF contributed to taking away.Having since queued for a random dungeon where I was grouped with three people from my own server, I've since changed my mind. They were either unprepared, unhelpful, or belligerent, with the worst offender being the tank who despite his own mistakes made the point of calling every person out on theirs (harshly) and threatening to start a votekick if it was repeated.Random strangers you meet from other servers in the RDF are the same as the random strangers you meet on your server - all just as likely to be nice/friendly/helpful as they are to be rude/aggressive/unpleasant. Being exposed to more of the people I have to make a community with on my server today has done little except cause additions to my blacklist for guild and raid invites.For me, my "community" is my guild and most of the people I've ever known and liked have come by word of mouth. I suppose someone has to start the ball rolling by speaking to random people they meet on the server to begin with, but my initial experience with the new RDF was negative enough to put me off queueing randomly for a few days.
