See, here's how I look at it: If you're unwilling to pay the eventual $1-$3 this costs, then don't. Show your displeasure in whatever way your pocketbook demands. That's free market. It's a great system. But a couple of points: It doesn't take that long to level. If the person you want to play with is such a good friend you're unwilling to pay a couple bucks to join them, why not roll a toon on their server or invite them to yours and play the ENTIRE GAME with them, rather then ONLY the 5-man content. Seriously, without spending a dime more then sub costs you've gotten a lot more content then someone who spends the extra dough and only has access to ques.Hell, I'd be more interested in being able to invite RealID friends to a raid then 5man....cross realm raiding would solve a lot of problems for people who have established toons (multiples, notice the plural) on several servers but the cost to consolidate them is prohibitive. I'd love to get my druid into my main's raids sometimes because we need alternate configurations depending on attendance. But I can't, because she's used in the guild I'm a part of on that server and I don't want to abandon either group I play with.Now, well reasoned arguments why Blizzard asking for a small fee for limited content is a bad idea when the ENTIRE game is available without added cost?
