WoW has recently added a feature that allows people to be randomly paired to go and do instances, regardless of where they are on the map or even what server they are on. This removes the ridiculous several-hour wait to get a group together so that people can actually go and have fun. Coming from someone who would usually take any opportunity to slam WoW for its evil design decisions, I can tell you, this is one of the most wonderful features that has ever been added to an MMO. And the mast majority of people are loving it.

"a sharp reminder that the WoW crowd is very different from the MMO crowd"
Riiiight. Have fun back in Darkfall with the 'real' MMO players then. Tell them both I said hello.
