Gazoo,What amazes me about your post isn't your vitriolic comments, but the continued presumption by you and others like you, that WOW has been ruined by (X). If hard core PVP aren't complaining that the game is ruined by hard core raiders, then hard core raiders are bitching about welfare epics and how the arena mentality has ruined raiding. And if the PVP'rs and Raiders aren't foaming at the mouth about each other, then they are spitting nails at casual players, who are probably annoyed by the hard core players. Of course, RP'rs hate everyone who doesn't RP for screwing up their psycological state of mind while playing, and everyone else thinks RP'rs are already screwed up psycologically and probably need help.Everyone is looking through their own version of rose colored glasses and it's really very silly.The most incredible thing about WoW, and the thing that keeps me signing in every day, is that it can wear so many "hats." If you want to PVP and be the gank king or queen of all time, then WoW has a couple things that you can do to get your fix and keep you busy. If you prefer the challenge of getting 25 people to work together on a singular goal, even though only 15% of you will get lucky enough to get a piece of loot, well WoW has a place for you too. If all you want to do is fish, then guess what? WoW has that one covered to. The great thing about WoW is that there is spectacular variety. If you are bored of one thing, then are fifty other things to do. That is why there are 10,000,000 people playing. Just because there is content for someone with a different preference in play than you, doesn't take away from the content that is available for you and your play style. Raiders pissed about welfare epics seem to forget that those epics take months to acquire a full set, just like their Boss drops, and they seem to forget that they aren't really that useful for raiding anyway, and vice versa.So what if the Sunwell quests drop a ton of greens. They're all lvl 67 and 68 greens, which means they're nothing but vendor/DE items.Why don't you pick how you enjoy playing your game of WoW, and let others pick theirs. There is plenty or room in Azeroth for everyone to have a good time. Here is a phrase that you should say to yourself a few times until you memorize it. "It isn't all about me. It isn't all about me." Just keep saying that to yourself like a mantra, or until you get over yourself.Full Disclosure: I raid Kara, ZA and Gruuls most weeks. Half my epics are from Raid, the other half are S3 Arena gear. My favorite thing to do though is questing and working on trade skills which is more of a casual play style, although I can't claim to be a casual player since I play about 30 - 40 hours per week. So, PVP & Raiding & Casual. Yes, you can do it all.
