I found this on MMO-Champion"Below is a small statement from their site.We are proud to declare that all WOTLK PVE raid content has now been cleared. This is both a moment of triumph and a cause for concern. The question in all our minds right now is if we could do this, how soon until the rest of the top guilds in the world clear all the raid content that WOTLK has to offer? Did Blizzard miscalculated in the tuning of these encounters? Or is this Blizzard folding under the weight of a large casual player base that demands to be on equal footing with end-game raiders?"

Their "worrying" is nothing but posturing, I doubt they actually care. WotLK could have shipped with 60 new raids and they would still have completed them at record pace because that's apparently their goal in life and they would still have complained that there wasn't enough.

I wouldn't say that this is a very big deal, your talking about a merger of the two most successful guilds in WoW's History. The fact that they are also sponsored means that for them it is more of a job. They don't just want to beat the game, they're paid to. So I would say that the worst part of this is that the idea of getting a world first, ever, is pretty much a mute point by now, they will. I think that regular raiders will enjoy the content at their own pace, and the only real issue now their value to the community. I mean they have no competition at this stage, and once they get fully geared, then what? Arena's they will be by far the most advanced group you will find.Over all though, if they begin to hold this monopoly I wonder if people will care much longer, or will we all begin to just wonder who is the second or more legitimate group going into the next tier.

For one, how much stuff gets added in content patches? Alot thats how much. These guys did something crazy and downed the last boss of a work in progress. No one was supposed to get that far that fast. No one can plan for entire guilds running trhough content 24 hours a day. If they did, the game would be so hard to the rest of us NORMAL raiders that it would put us all off. These are the two best guilds in the world merged into one. These are the guys in Everquest that did the 16 hour boss that was programmed to be IMPOSSIBLE for characters to bring down. Games shouldnt be built to these peoples specifications.

Sigh, It's sad that blizz caved and lowered the content so that mouth breathers could easily clear it. I hope the next patch brings content that is literally impossble. Though, blizz might lose millions of subscribers once casuals realize they don't get their welfares on a silver platter.

It's sad to see people in this game such as yourself and this conglomerate guild who are so incredibly full of yourselves that you seem to think that the contents of a game are meant for you and you alone, and that no one else is as "worthy" as you are to enjoy it all.Basically to you, the conglomerate guild, and all those who think like this:Go die in a fire, the QQ-ing is old and worn out and all us casuals' "give-a-damn" is busted.

@Eh?Why would I not want the game to be built to my specifications? I, as a consumer, want the best product for ME. I am sighing over the fact that the game is not the best it could be for ME. I care nothing for you, or your enjoyment of the game.edit: loldouble post
