Cross-Realm Dungeon Feature Coming Soon
This is basically no different than charging for realm transfers. If you want to play with your friends for free you have to be on the same server and faction, otherwise you'll have to pay premium. Seems pretty reasonable to me.
If the RNG gods are good to me and we queue using the LFD feature, it's possible we could all get in the same group and play together now.
This is essentially charging to use the /invite function to create that cross realm group before queueing rather than the server putting us together after.
I'm impressed Blizzard is going to be releasing this feature, and I agree with the premium features being added to it. Sounds very interesting though, and I look forward to trying this on the PTR once it is available for testing.
I think being premium based is fine. You dont NEED to group with people from other servers, and you can always go roll a toon on their server if you dont want to pay.And you don't NEED to use the RDF, perhaps they should put a charge on that too? You don't NEED access to Firelands, why not add a charge to that too!
However, since this will be a premium service, it would be nice if it offered truly premium benefits. I'm thinking not only dungeons, but raids. You should be able to invite someone from another server into your group, and then when they walk into the raid on their server, everyone ends up in the same raid. This would be really cool.
enough of this LFD nonsense. stop sinking time into that crap. this functionality should have been there from DAY ONE. its the least you could have done seeing as how you forced your RealID nonsense on us.
boo. this. company.
I see this is a way to bolster the sales on that service.
I don't think it's a coincidence. They've been building up the mobile premium subscription for quite a while now.
I don't mind paying three dollars extra for mobile access and guild chat and other OUT OF GAME functions. But if they're going to link this cross ream IN GAME service to the mobile account, I'll be cancelling my mobile account. Luckily all my friends are on this server.
