I think this game needs to identify 4 categories of players, in average time sink order:Raiders (want it ALL ASAP)Gamers (want it all, but in their own time)Casuals (just want the opportunity to have it all)Scrubs (want it ALL ASAP, but without putting in effort, often are very bad players too)I respect 3 of those players. Who's the odd one out?But do let me go on, I'm a casual in every sense of the word. I work full-time as a finance professional, pulling 60+ hour weeks. On weekends (can't play weekdays) I normally just log to raid, do a few heroics, and clear some important dailies (i.e. Hodir). I've been playing for 3 months and am one of the best dps in my old guild and could quite easily go head to head with most on the server, am geared for EoE25 (wow-heroes), have all needed skills and mounts, and have plenty of gold to spare. I don't wrap my life around the game, but I play to my best when I'm there. I'm not in a rush to get anything done, yet at the same time am surprised at how easy it is to get gold, get geared, and be competitive. It's refreshing, but I can understand the more hardcore getting a bit annoyed due to simplicity. But when something like this comes out, I'll get excited at the possibility of owning it and it's a nice goal to work towards.And due to this I totally understand Anoms reaction on page 7 too. I don't work as hard as my boss (I manage sleep daily) so I don't feel like I'm getting shortchanged because I don't drive the car she does, nor do I have a beautiful collection of LV luggage, nor do I eat at the best restaurants in the world. But I can drive a car, do own luggage, and I eat. See the point I'm getting at?
