I seriously doubt its the b-team. The idea that Blizzard had this extra-ordniary team of super stars, that has never experienced attrition, re tasking or movement over the past 8-10 years is, well, ludicrous. I'm sure the team has changed, and I'm sure that some people have changed roles within Blizzard, but i seriously doubt, to the point of calling the original blogger a liar, that blizzard just turned around and said 'sure thing guys, just hand the keys to the kingdom over to the interns, and sloppy joe, sure, who cares what happens now?'What we have now then, are a lot of the 'me, me, me' raiders, who assume that the game must, without any compromise, revolve around them, getting pissed that the game doesn't focus on them, and then deciding that blizzard is the problem. It couldn't be that blizzard have said, we need to please everyone, so instead it must be sloppy design work.THe problem is only made worse then, as forums, and the internet allow people to blow of steam, and make (watch the capitals) UNBELIEVABLY over the top claims, to the point of insulting, knowing that behind their anonymity, they are safe to say things they never would in person. These stupid claims get pounced on, and like some infectious madness, it spreads, until some ideal version of the game is created in peoples head, that never existed.The game is now delivering more content to more players than ever before.Only the most selfish, egotistical self absorbed people could consider this a bad thing, and then try and blame on reasons as woeful and pitiful as 'its the designers, they suck'
