@ZulI absolutely agree with everything you have said. I didn't say hardmodes were easy, but they aren't "real" content. Many of them are like fighting a boss with part of the raid missing. Beating a hard mode doesn't have the same feeling as beating a hard boss did in BC or classic, and you get the hard mode vs progression drama in guilds.All hard modes should involve new aspects of the fight, not just lame "morez boss HP!" like several of them do. You may as well make the "hard mode" involve the DPS unequipping their weapons, it would be as meaningful (its just a gear check, the lamest of boss fights).@MagresdaI (and many "hardcore" raiders, I'm not "hardcore" anymore) don't like them because many of the hard modes are lame. It also has the problem that if you aren't in a "hardcore" guild you have an up hill battle to convince people to stop sucking and attempt them instead of going for the easy epics. Its the same reason many guilds see less people show up on progression raids instead of farm raids, far too many people are just in it for the numbers in a database. And thanks to easy mode Naxx2 these people think they have the skills to be raiders, and now they are coming up against the first slightly challenging content and failing.And you are terrible at reading if you think I care about other people getting epics (as I said the tens should be easy). I only raid to fight at least moderately challenging bosses. The gear won't mean jack come the next expansion (I've been raiding since classic). I did the entirety of SSC without getting a single upgrade. I only care about loot in so much as it allows me to progress through raids.
