I absolutely believe that the B-team has been put onto WoW. Too much in the game screams cut and paste (armor) or lazy (most of the raids) that would either be delegated to a much reduced development team or the less skilled developers who have basically been tasked with being the game's watcher till the new MMO is launched.It's like paying for a concert ticket and only getting to see the local openers and not the headliner.

Really, are ppl just saying this for the sake of saying it, have they actually raided anything beyond naxx? Do they even remember about copy/paste t4-t6.5, season 1-4 recolored armor?How T6.5 was exactly like T9 is going to be, except in T9 the textures are different just same model, while in T6.5 both textures and models where identical?

epsilon343 I completely agree, up until now we have one single instance added which is also high quality, but the rest of these changes (especially for this content patch) involve a staggering amount of cut and paste, same bosses, amour all looks identical etc. Even Naxx was surprising to see just dropped in there with no graphical re-working to match the quality of northrend.I do believe the B-team are in charge of things and have been so since the launch of WotLK with the bulk of the development staff heading off to the new MMO. Personally I think this is a huge mistake and would even question the whole approach to creating a new MMO here, annoying the player base for your current game isn't a great way to get them to subscribe to your new one, something which is especially true of MMO's.Add to that I think this patch sort of underlines a sense of desperation in the way its needed, outside of Uldar now everything else is just too plain easy and does not give me a sense of accomplishment because of that.
