Man, I love it when the so called 'imba' set talk about the game getting too easy. Simple rule: If you clear all the content in pve and get all the arena gear then basically you have no life, have skills that no-one will ever pay for (unless you are one of those losers who think a short career in esports makes up for failing university) and essentially will be removed from the gene pool due to you never remotely being attractive to the opposite sex.Too successful at MMOPG = Loser in LifeHappy to Bumble Along in MMOPG without stressing about having the best gear, doing world or server firsts or being top in ratings = NormalEnjoy being imba. The rest of us have a life.

Actually, this is probably not true. A fellow amateur sociologist and I have developed the theory that true success in wow has two kinds of difficulty. There is the actual playing your class skill and the social skill. Getting very far in wow without a modicum of either is pretty difficult. (This also leads into my hypothesis that many female players seem to "suck" because their social skill has gotten them into a place where their playing skills couldn't have) The social skills that many people exhibit in wow do indeed have a lot of IRL value. And is spending every friday night in a bar actually a morally superior "life"? Hardly.
