It's standard operating procedure for Blizz to make their games more accessible as the game ages. They have done it throughout WoW, and they even did it back in the Diablo2 days. It's all about keeping players playing and keeping the money flowing in. It just makes sense to give broader access to "endgame content" to more players as the number of subscriptions start to decline. Doing so will keep players hooked for longer and stretch out those subscriptions several more months.I do agree that it’s possible that they could eventually nerf the fun and challenge out of the game. Hopefully WOTLK doesn’t do that. It sounds like there will be enough different things to do, places to explore, content to devour, and bosses to conquer to keep me interested in playing for a while longer. WoW is a social experience for me and my friends as much as it is entertainment. As long as there’s some cool stuff to do with my friends, I’ll stick around.
