gamers are to blame, not blizzard.
gamers are so caught up in being mr. popular in a digital world by trolling and drawing attention to their selves now that it kills the chat windows for the rest of us. Back in the day the channels were rather kosher and the trolls were on forums. Now their infection is here and has been for several years. As the years have gone by the chatter has died off slowly.
Now mmo gamers are too preoccupied with grinding and ignoring the trolls infesting the internet that they do not socialize... just like in their real life.
Want to cure it? do what i do... get in a large community raiding guild that talks non-stop, even when we're trying to do a heroic boss kill lol. Always fun when the raid leader has to go "!@#$!!" when the rage timer is nearing. Plus, the laughs I get while we're doing boring trash helps me heal from a stressful day.
but on a personal note, I hate when BGs are all quiet late in the night. Drives me insane that people would team up and not communicate.... at all. I can tolerate the quiet dungeons because nerdy grindy gamers will always be just that.
