This is exactly what I hear from everyone I've talked to about the raid finder. (while chatting on Vent! Oh, the irony)While it's roughly a 50/50 chance of getting a good group/useless collection of idiots in the dungeon finder, I also expect that raid finder will fail not for lack of technology, but the immature attitudes of the community.In theory the RF tool sounds great. I sure hope blizz doesn't overspend capitol on this system, for I believe its' doomed to fail.Imagine an a______ of a tank overpulling and exiting the raid, like some do in dungeons. (man, I wish blizz would give peeps who do that a 24 hour deserter debuff) What kind of backlash will result from this? Sure, there will be other tanks there, you *might* live thru it, but there will be many who don't and they will have huge repair bills. If a healer bails out mid fight it's just about a certain wipe. Even a DPS could aggro a ton of trash and exit the raid leaving those behind to deal with the mess.I am calling the raid finder tool the raid griefing tool. I am betting you all will too, in time.
