This certainly gives people the incentive to come back to the game, but on the other hand, if you haven't been playing since, say, middle of Wrath, and your friend invites you back, and you get a level 80 ... Well, I don't envy someone who hasn't seen any of the changes in Cataclysm jumping right into the deep end trying to play a level 80. I guess that's why it's optional!No, if only I had a former player friend. All my friends that don't already play are still yet to be pulled in, and stubbornly evading my fish hook.

but isnt that what we all did when cata came out and we leveled from 80-85?

No, it's not. Let's say you quit in TBC. You're level 70. Suddenly, you're level 80 with 10 levels' of new spells, not to mention all the switchups that we got in Cata so the spells you have may not even be the ones you're used to. You're dumped smack into Hyjal... and remember how brutal those level 80 zones were to people who knew their class from 1-80, no skips.Sure, the idea is you'll have your friend to help you along but... I don't know. This whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I was okay with free levels for RAF since the person playing had to do a lot of legitimate levelling to earn those "free" levels. This feels more like a slippery slope to purchasing a level 80 character from Blizz and I'm not sure I like the view.

That's a good point actually./facepalm

But if someone was at the level of disatisfaction that they quit in BC and haven't come back by now.. I just doubt anything at this point would convince them.
