@ MavfreakYou forget, thats YOUR opinion, that mmorpg are for YOU. That in itself says a lot about your ego.Anyhow for a more coherent analysis of your statement. 1) i do not, and never have, begrudge the top players their server 1sts or better loot (which is at best transitory imo), nor their accomplishments (such as glory of the raider, and i notice the REWARD and show off item of the drake has now been removed)2) a 'niche' is usually not main stream, but specialised. I do not know anybody that says WOW is not mainstream entertainment now. Theres simply too many players for it not to be considered that now.3) As a long time RPG'er i can safely say, i play this for fun, not bragging rights (but if you do play for bragging rights - fair play to you and best of luck)4) hard core players 'discovered' WOW. My god, that IS an ego isnt it, personally i found only RPG'ers started early on wow, as this was what they wanted since Gary Gygax first published D&D, and believe it or not, they played it for FUN. If ONLY hard core players played, you wouldnt have a game to play. Simple as that tbh. Money make the programmers work. Money comes from all sources. Without the funds from the casuals you seem to dislike, there would be no wrath, or probably not even a TBC.Lastly your second post makes large comparisons on why hard mode is bad, all based on loot, which you previously stated was not the object, please make up your mind. You cant be focused on content, then moan that loot wont drop fast if you go for hard modes. This, tbh, makes you sound like a loot wh**e. But surely hard modes and the BETTER rewards and achievements fill exactly what you say you do your 1st post. And just to alter your premise on the 2nd example, if an ELITE guild with HARDCORE players does uldar, they should pwn the hard mode at the SAME TIME as a casual guild, thereby gaining better loot and more achievements. You see what i did there - actually assuming HC players and casuals are NOT the same skill level, and that its NOT about having equivalent igear?Lastly if your not enjoying it, THEN QUIT FFS. Its a game, if you dont enjoy it find another one. Go 'discover' a game where you have to be on 24/7 to get anywhere if thats what makes you happy, just dont expect it to go global and have multiple expansions. Although there IS one that does require you to be on 16hours (approx) a day, has over 5 billion members, and no end in site. Its called Real Life. You may want to play it sometime, it takes a bit of getting used to, and you dont just 'pick up' your stuff off a boss you kill (well you can but i certainly wouldnt recommend it - the in game police take it off you and put you in jail for a long time), but has some great content.Oh and as ppl dont seem to respect any comments without links - Sinthar IS my main - Dragonblight, EU realm. Look me up. Im sort of half way between HC and casual id guess in your book. I have put a lot of time in, but due to RL commitments i havent been into uldar bar 2-3 runs so far, and tbh if chosing some RL over uldar makes me a casual in your eyes, then so be it. I care not for others labels, so you can call me what you want.
