"Silver Covenant and Sunreaver tabards for players exalted with those factions."So long as you have a Champion rank. People on Sat connections are still screwed for the new content

So you're saying that because some people have shitty internet, no new content should ever require a time investment?

Um where did I say that? I believe I said people with Sat connections are screwed with accessing new contextIf you have a bad internet, you're not getting the SC things, even if you already ground to exalted with all the factions needed for the crusader title (which I have btw), because you can't joust (which is my situation). It would be nice if Blizzard made some adjustments so one didn't have to rely on getting past a joust with a 3.0 second delay between the time the button is clicked and the time the attack lands. Or to look at it logically, let's consider thisTo use the new Tournament items and dailies you need to be able to joust to reach the rank of Champion. However:Someone who can't joust can't advance to ChampionA person with a Sat connection can't joustTherefore a person with a Sat connection can't advance to Champion.So you can see (I hope) that with advancement depending on Internet quality means people with lower than that quality are screwed.LK, btw merely says requires "broadband" connection. Not a specific requirement of what Broadband. So it seems to be their responsibility to print minimum internet or make options for those who can't do this.

Unfortunately minimum requirements are just that... 'minimum'. They only guarantee the game will operate, not much more. I wish Blizz did a tad of viability testing before they introduced content that some people fundamentally can't experience.
