I'm with Eliah on this one - the old experience of long waits between patches was annoying. The folks complaining about how Blizz handles bugs should imagine what it was like when you might have to wait two or three months for any fixes at all (and yes, I know there are still bugs that hang around for a long time but I don't believe as many as there used to be).Also, vanilla wow had exactly two things to do at endgame - PvP or raid. Now there's a whole lot more. I mean, I remember the Darkmoon fair going in being the pinnacle of new casual content! I sure wouldn't still be playing if the game hadn't expanded as much as it has. So yeah, whoever this "B-team" is, good job guys!

The thing you point out about the casual players getting more to do is also, I think, the biggest failing. Blizzard has made great strides in making the game accessible and enjoyable for casual players that make it so that people don't HAVE to raid or PVP. And that's GREAT!But on the other side of the coin...those same strides haven't been made in the PVE/end game content and everything I've been seeing seems to be confirming that this trend will continue. The new raid looks horribly uninteresting and rivaling the 3.0 raids in terms of laziness. From what I've seen, most of the bosses borrow tactics from previous encounters and the instance is a single room that collapses and you encounter a reused boss from this expansion. Nothing is original and it all feels old before we've even gone into it.My $.02

I dunno. I made a post above that pretty much sums up my feeling about end game PvE in vanilla. Personally I think we as a player base have gotten kind of spoiled. We get new content and new armor sets every 2-3 months, and we complain that it's not ZOMGthebestthingeverseen. It's like the whole thing with the new armor designs. We complain when our armor doesn't match, but giant flashy sets only look good if you have the whole set, otherwise you look like a clown. So they give us mix and match gear, and we complain that it's not huge and flashy. *shrug* Eventually it's just the same arguments recycled over and over and over again. There are posts in this thread that could be copied verbatim into a thread from three years ago.
