These easy-raids are plain boring. They suck big-time. You may complain about hard trash being tough on your nerves or bosses taking a couple of weeks to learn but it made the accomplishment greater. Not the loot or the title or the hurrays in Orgrimmar but your personal achievement was far more giving than this crap. I may be a bit more hardcore than 90% of you (or rather a somewaht lower number as there probably are more raiding players gathered here at wowinsider) but I just can't see why you would want to do these instances at all as they are now. Hardcore players are accused all the time for only wanting exclusiveness but that's just plain wrong. We are in it for the challenge. The only one caring for showing off gear is the casual player that now can pretend to be doing end-game content for a week or two dressing up in fancy suits, hanging around Dalaran. To the raiding population gear is nothing more than a tool to get to new more interesting challenges. Take away the challenge and you end up with boring work. Even fighting through trash can be challenging an fun in the beginning but pressing a button and whoops there goes Maexxna, c'mon it has got nothing to do with fun.And sure you could up the stakes by decimating the number of players in a raid or going for achievements. But if that is what need to be done then the raids really are out of tune. Why even have a limit on the number of players then? Why not let everyone bring as many as they like and the casuals can pug the tough ones witha a gazillion of players so they don't even have to think about tactics. "Don't stand in the fire" Oh wait, that doesn't matter cause you take no damage. Keep pressing that one button and you'll be fine. Fun, really fun.

Hi,Your comments seem to be contradicting themselves. At the start you seem to say that the only reason you do raids is for the accomplisment of killing a boss, not gear, then later you state that doing the blizz accomplishments isnt what you want. Why exactly?I dont get that you WANT the accomplishment of killing stuff, but to get a 'recognised' achievement, one that even gives u a 'shiney' to show off, and will make it a hard fight - yet you brush it off as not what you want. So what exactly do you want? Something to challenge the very top HC raiders in the TRAINING raid for Wrath? Do you not see the problems that would cause? New players now have to START learning in Nax, so lets not just make it a complete roadblock eh?Whilst i personally an not HC (causual guild - raided upto MH (pre nurf) and BT (post)), i DO sympathise with them to the point that they have had no major gear reset - so have flown through the content so far, and the training raid (naxx) will provide them with no significant challenge, BUT they are the ones CHOOSING to do it this way, and im dammed if im gonna jump on the 'well blizz should have made it harder' bandwagon. I still have many many quests to complete, lore to find, and tonnes of achievements to complete. Theres new alts to lvl and gear, rep to grind, mats to farm, pvp to do, and i can do this all whilst chatting to my guild mates. If nothing in those floats your boat, then MAKE UP A CHALLENGE that YOU will find rewarding - it doesnt matter if noone else wants to do it, its YOUR game and only YOU can make it fun.
