You're an idiot. You really think creating a raid with multiple modes of difficulty is easier than creating 2 or 3 different raids like SSC and BT? It seems like most reasonable players recognize this is a smart business decision for Blizz (making as much of the game accessible to as many of their subscribers as possible) as well as a satisfying approach for most players. I think the only ones who have a problem with it are the people whose sense of self-worth is tied to being able to say they were in one of the few guilds to clear Sunwell before the nerf. Other than being able to feel more leet than other players, what benefit is there to making certain raids available to only the most hardcore players.Adding multiple modes of difficulty to these new raids is anything but lazy. If anything, it's probably harder than creating an entirely new encounter, because the balancing becomes even more precise and delicate when you increase difficulty, and finding interesting ways to vary an encounter is harder than just making up a new boss. You clearly have little to no concept of how much work goes into this game that we all enjoy. Creating these patches in the short amount of time it takes them is amazing--it's only people's annoyingly short attention span and impatience that makes it seem like they're not doing enough.
