I see the trend here now, all the players who could not cut it in Uldar or were too lazy to put in the work love this change... I understand your dislike for those who Did put in the work, it's like watching a successful friend drive by in a new car and you in your old junker, he went to college, you did not, he worked until 3 am everyday to earn the car... you played WoW and bragged about your 2k dps. You can grey this post out too... but I now understand the kind of players that do the thumbs down on those who are not happy with the change.

Couldn't cut it in Ulduar? Too lazy? Neither, thanks. I had no opportunity to go to Ulduar because at the time of night I play, the raids are already full usually and our guild is still gearing. I'm not jealous of people who can go, though I do have an expectation that they try not to be closed-minded and assume that because some players aren't geared or aren't running it means they aren't competent and are lazy. The only person in my guild who even does Ulduar is currently unemployed, can go to bed at 6 a.m. and get up whenever the hell he wants, and has no children or other responsibilities during the day. The rest of us have responsibilities outside the game that preclude us from playing whenever our id tells us we'd like to. It's not at all about not wanting to put in the time. I've researched my gear drops, I know what I want, I know how to get there...now I just need to work on getting the rest of my guild to that point. I've run heroics til they came out of my ears. I'm still running them to work on my off-spec set while I wait for everyone to be geared and in a position to start running 10-mans. They're the only people I know on my server that I can guarantee running at the time of day I can and who are understanding if something happens and I have to go AFK.

1) Casuals are not lazy. Casuals are people who have better things to spend their time on then listen to the obligatory spam of whiny, self-entitled 10-40 yr olds (yes, a wide age span but scary on how little the maturity gap is) on how much more they deserve for playing so many more hours then the rest of us. Want a reward? You already have it. You will be the first ones out conquering the brand-spankin new bosses. You will be the ones making videos showing the rest of us on how to beat said bosses. You will be the ones strutting out the door with all the shiny new epics/toys/sets. It will be weeks, months in some cases given some folks play schedule before we see that new tier 8-9 piece let alone fit together a whole set. Hardcore players will see more content then us casuals regardless of how "easy" it becomes to obtain gear simply because they will be on more then the rest of us. Honestly, why run raids if your not having fun in it anyways?2) While your analogy I assume was meant to put down the casuals/non-raiders, somehow in real life, it much more likely to be the reverse. The hardcore raiders may be the first to the awesome loot in WoW, but kinda hard to gloat when that casual is too busy driving their new car to their job that pays way more then yours because they chose to spend their time on getting somewhere in real life as opposed stroking their e-peen in game. 3) I recognize not all raiders are jerks, I really do. Been in pugs with a wide variety, and I

I love when people use the word LAZY when talking about other players. WoW is not a job or career but a game in which everyone has a choice on how they wish the play it and either way is wrong.
