i'm kind of spun up now! does anyone REALLY think they're being even the slightest bit clever calling someone who has achieved more in game than they have, basement-dweller, no-lifer, virgin, social-misfit, etc etc etc?Honestly, is that even possible? that these people haven't heard these tired tired cliches tossed around for years, and still think they're insightful or witty in anyway?anyways, i for one am in favor of removing raid content all together and just giving everyone their teir 9 tokens in the mail when they log in. that would truly be fair to everyone with a subscription, regardless of their time commitment.

Good point!You worked 40 hours per week (I assume 8 hours a day, M-F)You raided 5-6 nights a week (Assuming 2-3 hours M-F, more on weekends)A growing boy such as yourself probably needs 8 hours of beauty sleep a night...so...your weekdays and one weekend day are pretty filled.That left you, what, a whole day during the week to have "maintained an active social life" and have "kept up with my responsibilities"?I'm not saying that you are, as you stated, a "basement-dweller, no-lifer, virgin, social-misfit", but I do think your definition of "hard-core" player and "active social life" differ greatly from mine. I don't want epic loot handed out to everyone on a silver platter, either. I would, however, like to be able to see all the hard work the Blizz development team put into creating my favorite video game. I only get to/want to play 5-10 hours per week, and I make the most of the time I get to play. I spend my much smaller amount of time focusing on making my main raid-viable, so that on those rare occasions when I am playing I can see what Blizz has created. In my opinion, this is what Blizz did with WotLK. They made intro raid content available to players who work just as hard as the "hard core", but have less time in their life to do so.Elitist, jerk-off commentary such as spouting "'casuals' are too lazy to bother" or are "no-talent players who want everything for no effort" simply because they don't have the time to play that you do, paints you as nothing more than a troll. Please take your diatribe elsewhere.

@Dysfunkshunal i think you're confusing me with some of what some other dude said above me.

also, Dysfunkshunalyou said you like to play 5 to 10 hours a week?supposing you can muster up 8 hours per week regularly, thats probably enough time for 2 raid nights per week. if you could have found a guild that raided 2 nights per week in BC thats probably good enough to get into t6 content even before it got unkeyed/nerfed etc.
