Because I'm frankly...tired of hearing this. I'm tired of this "controversy" on every one of the previously enlightening and entertaining blogs I usually read. Wrath has not even been out for a full month. QQing raiders can't get their heads around the concept that the "endgame" they're so desperate to have is not over. It hasn't even BEGUN yet. Sunwell was not shipped with TBC. The Black Temple wasn't even open on BC's release date. The people who are complaining seem to be dead set on the idea that this is it. There's gonna be no endgame beyond what's already in the game. Blizzard has been on record saying several times that they felt the introduction to raiding in Burning Crusade was too much of a brickwall. They stated a ton of times that they wanted Wrath to have a more gradual, easier transition to harder raiding content. Why is this bad? Why? Not only were BC raids a brickwall in terms of gear, they were brickwalls in terms of knowing how to play in a raid. They're a much different beast from 5-mans played with a PuG. You need to know HOW to raid in order to raid...but you need to raid to learn how. A more educated, skilled playerbase working their way to the inevitable harder endgame content will only serve to enrich raiding as a whole. More strategies, more tactics, more debate, more fun. How is this a bad thing?It's pretty easy to bash on Blizzard for being sell-outs, idiots, etc...but WoW's the most popular MMO in the world, and has kept that title for nearly half a decade now. They obviously know what they're doing and I'm willing to give them the chance to do it. If not, I'll eat my Bloodsail Admiral's Hat.
