The first question that springs to mind is this: If you haven't played WoW for years and clearly don't care, why are you even reading WoW.com? You've made it clear that you aren't the target audience for this website, so should they really cater their articles to your tastes?Anyway, your argument could be applied to any facet of the game, anywhere. What does it mean, ultimately, to be the first guild to down Yogg-Saron Hard Mode? Nothing, and yet we like reading about it and congratulate said guild just the same. Obtaining a legendary item may not translate to job success in the real world, but it's an achievement nonetheless, and putting the spotlight on the perspective of a fairly normal player rather than a super-hardcore raider is a refreshing change of pace.I think it's safe to say that most of us don't hold achievements in WoW to be momentous, life-changing accomplishments. That doesn't mean they aren't impressive though, nor does it mean you can't feel good when you grab a new epic. We all play the game for fun (Except for you), and as a community centered around the game, we enjoy discussing one another's accomplishments.Ultimately, it's a matter of taste, and you've already stated that your taste is vastly different from that of this site's readership. So, with all due respect good sir, don't bother commenting if you're just going to bash us WoW players. This clearly isn't the website for you, so if you insist on reading it, do us all a favor and be silent about it.
