/agree. I work in software development and our team is paid to be a couple of steps ahead of the game. If software companies (that develop progressive, evolving software as opposed to stand-alone products such as a console game etc) didn't have teams like that then there is not just a danger but pretty much a guarantee the development will hit a dead zone which could really hurt the future usership.I think Blizz will (and did) admit that they lacked a dedicated team for such forward planning in the early days of the Original WoW and that is why there was such a huge leap in gear etc when the Dark Portal opened and greens were replacing epics far too quickly. With all the criticism of Activision, this may be something they have 'encouraged' the Blizz team to do (more of?) and for the bettering of the game as a whole, imo.

Argh comments went all monkey nuts on me. Sry, for clarification - as my last comment only half posted - I don't work in game development but other software. Didn't want to mislead anyone but the rule I said in my OP does still apply./use coffee
