With WoW's numerous servers, the chances of being on the same server as a new friend/acquaintance who also plays WoW are incredibly slim. Like, close to zero slim. The fact that Blizzard is charging extra to *play* with *friends* in an MMO does piss me off, and I think I'm more than justified in feeling so.I understand that this has been the norm for quite some time, but more and more MMOs these days are surpassing the shard/server walls from days of yore. Look at how many employ "channels" that you can freely jump through without even having to log out. If you meet another person who plays Metal Assault or Guild Wars, that's it. You can play with them. There's no tricks or technical barriers. This is Blizzard's opportunity to finally tear down the ~150+ walls separating it's player base.
