The problem isn't "hard modes", or Blizzard, or anything of the sort. The problem is simply raider laziness and elitism.The "hardcore" raiders do the easy fights to get the content down, so they can say they cleared the instance first. Then they go back and do the hard modes. That's why it' seems like a repeat.The easy mode wasn't meant for the "hardcore" guilds, it was meant for "everyone else". If you want actual hard, challenging encounters, DON'T DO THE EASY MODES! Spend your weeks and weeks wiping on the hard modes like you claim to want, and NEVER do it the "easy" way.If you don't like "casual" (er, 10-man) raiding, and don't think they should exist, then don't run 10-man groups. Don't spend that time learning the encounters, like you do now, in preparation for 25-mans. You're just enabling the casuals that way. Stick to 25-mans, and do only the hard modes. That's what was designed for you.By caving in and doing it the easy way, you're just as fail as you claim the rest of us are. Welcome to the fail-crowd ;)What these "hardcore" guilds want, in reality, is to flex their e-peen. You can see it time and time again. They want to have the best equipment, they want to get the world firsts, and, most importantly, they don't want anyone else to be able do it. They want content that only they can see because of their leet-ness. They want the rest of us "scrubs" to oooh and aaah over their achievements and their titles and their gear.If they really wanted a challenge, they'd just do it the hard way and never look back.
