A casual should be playing Hello Kitty Island Adventure :D I jest.I'm just a little annoyed they dumb down content for BAD players, which most people assume are casuals. Our guild raids only 2 nights a week and we're still keeping up with the 5-night-a-week guilds.Casual ≠ Slacker. Word.

Man, how long do I need to use a computer before I can figure out the "not equal" sign on my keyboard!^This. Nice comment on the content and how bad play is often equated with casual play. I pay when I can, and only raid perhaps once a week, if I'm lucky, but I know my classes, come prepared, and learn from my mistakes, so I take it seriously when someone says "oh, you're only casual" as if it's a bad thing. Don't mistake occasional play for occasional effort - the two need not be related, as you point out.Great article, Robin - hopefully people who can't tell one group from another will have a better sense of what casual means.

This is an absolutely ridiculous response. Just because you “keep up” with the 5 night a week guilds does not mean you are on par with them.Keeping up needs to be defined…Do you keep up with them on bosses downed? Do you 3-5 hours your 2 nights a week and they raid until 2 flasks expire 5 nights a week? Are they attempting hard modes and therefore really ahead of you in progression and gear?I agree some of the content has been oversimplified, but there is still enough challenge out there for various levels of guilds and players and to say that casual is defined by the very small parameter in which you attempted to do so is really in direct contradiction to the spirit of the post.http://fatchickstank.blogspot.com/
