As a casual gamer who happens to be in a hardcore raiding guild, I never find it a problem to keep up with the hardcore guys in Kara, ZA, or Gruul's whenever I get the chance to join in. So, its not an issue of casuals being less skilled than hardcore players (at least in my case). My biggest issue as a player with less time to play is getting the group set up which can take longer than actually raiding. With 10-man raid versions and the 5-man's being able to be done in less than an hour, Im one happy casual player because actually feel like I will have a chance to actually face off against Arthas. That just gives me a lot of new optimism for the new expansion as a casual player.

Hear hear! I'm a casual player who can manage 1-3 hours of playtime in a row (usually). I'm not bad at my job, I can heal nearly any instance you put in front of me. My only problem is, and has always been, inability to get a group from LFG, get them to the instance and prepared, then work out marking/loot rules, then get started. By the time I've managed to get a tank out of Warsong, get them respecced, get them to Slabs and get everybody provisioned then my fiancee is telling me it is time to walk the dog.One hour 5-mans? Ten-man raids all the way to Arthas with a separate progression with cooler loot for 25 mans? No "unlocking" instances? Sign me up. It sounds like I'll actually get my money's worth from Wrath, unlike BC where I see all the daily quests and Kara, but nothing after that.
