@Treima"...And it's not because I would no longer have an e-peen to flex.With this new adjustment a large part of the motivation for some to participate in a 25-man raid, which is the ability to experience lore content that would otherwise be impossible, is gone. Now everyone that isn't a total loot hawk can 10-man every raid and fulfill their goals of seeing new content.......Once again Blizzard succumbs to the shrill keening of anti-hardcore nabobs, to the detriment of the game in general."Actually, you hit this right on the nose as to why the change is a GOOD thing.Basically, from what I can see, the 'hardcore raider outrage' boils down to this:Oh Noessss!!!11!1 They're stealing our SPECIALNESSSS.....stealing our pppprecioussssss.....we wants it back! .....you neeeds usss....you filthy masses are supposed to ADORE usss.... GIVES US OUR PRECIOUSSSSSS......---------------Get over yourselves already. If you're that full of yourselves to be so outraged by a sharing of the content you need to find something else to do. I don't know...take up underwater basketweaving or something...The attitude that only a few 'deserve' to experience something in a game that everyone pays the same price for is appalling. No one said that the 10-mans would be easy, in fact, I hope they are extremely hard, and the 25-mans even harder, with spectacular loot to boot. In reading all the different comments and articles regarding the opening up of content, extremely few places have I found anyone griping about not getting the same loot as what comes from the big raids. What I DO find is people wanting to experience the entire game they paid their subscription for. While loot is indeed nice (who doesn't like loot?), I think you'll find that the vast majority of the player base care more about experiencing everything the game has to offer over how wonderful the loot is that they can get from something. Hell, I've seen posts in the past that people would run BT for blues if it meant they could fight Illidan in a smaller group and experience that content.
