But on the other hand, casuals are quitting because they only see the raiders being satiated. They see that once you hit level cap, all that's left are dungeons and raids, and the only new content being introduced is raids. 3.1's big feature is Ulduar, a new 10/25-man raid, but what's in 3.1 for the casuals? A daily hub in Icecrown that requires you to be 80 or at least 77+ to even get to? Swimming mounts? A few fishing dailies? Not a lot for the casuals. Stuff like Dance Studios are the big things that cater to casuals.The real stuff casuals want, like Player Housing and Cosmetic Gear/Dyes? Blizzard outright refuses to ever make it possible, citing thousands of hours of work required to do it. Meanwhile they spend hundreds of hours making each new raid for each new patch, leaving the casuals to wonder why hundreds of hours for a raid is more important than a couple thousand for housing(that anyone, not just casuals, can enjoy). The casuals are just wondering when it'll be their time to shine.So yeah, Hardcore Raiders are quitting, but so are Casuals. Combined together, you can see why people are thinking that WoW is in a decline or at least a much slower growth.
