In honor of The Shattering I feel that we should take a moment to mourn the loss of some of our close friends.
R.I.P Perma-Tree of Life
R.I.P Tranq Spam
R.I.P Old Tree Model
R.I.P Rocket BOOTS (I hate that our boots are on our belt now ><)
R.I.P RNGesus (as if anyone cares ;) )
R.I.P H HOR (soon)
For your viewing pleasure I offer this video. Make sure you turn off the sound, cause the narrator sounds like an idiot =/.
P.S I'm sorry the video quality sucks laptop FTL. At least the concept is good ;)
R.I.P. all the characters of the great players who have quit, imo. I'm looking at you, Prometea. I barely recognize people anymore. My once-full and lively friends list is now lucky to have 2 online, and they're not people I really enjoy playing with or get to play with, or they're in my guild (pointless to have them on the friends list, then).
DF tool has ruined that aspect of the game. I no longer get to know people through my trade channel pugs, see their abilities and their personalities through repeated runs, have the opportunity to fill my friends list with active players I enjoy playing with.
R.I.P. on-server pugging, and with those goes additions to my friends list. I miss BC for no other reason but this. I don't learn anything about the way people play or act from the rare faceroll ICC10 pug I do unless it's not faceroll, then I clearly don't want to add them. The trade chat pugs that were successful sometimes evolved into as good a friendship as there can be through the anonymity of the game, and it's gone.
I hope they add an option to wait for a group of people only from your server, and that people take that option enough for it to be viable. I want to be able to open my friends list and find options to fill that last pug spot again, or an entire group's worth of people for a heroic again.
FWIW, I wouldn't count on-server pugging as dead yet. I'm hoping to do my Cataclysm pugging with at least a majority of on-server people. Given how incredibly bad people are at Wrath dungeons, 2 years in and outgearing them by a mile, I have absolutely no inclination to use the DF solo if I have any other choice.
