gah, enough with forcing us to run old shit in order to min-max gear that we might still need.

To build out on my anger:We raid 25s 2 nights a week 3-4 hrs each. That's Ulduar (mostly Yogg at this point), ToC, Ony and VoA. Where do they think all this extra time is going to come from to run these instances for badges?It'll be like herding cats to get players to Naxx and Ulduar after the new raid come out in 3.3.
Always amazed at some of the readership here... no one is forcing you to run anything. It will be like 20 min of raiding to nab some gold and high end emblems. Quit your qq this is good for all raiders, including us hardcore ones.

Use the first 15 minutes of one of your regular raids to do it. One would think that people that "raid 25s 2 nights a week 3-4 hrs each. That's Ulduar (mostly Yogg at this point), ToC, Ony and VoA" would be able to figure this one out on themselves. I was obviously wrong. Being leet doesn't meant you can think for yourself, it seems.

@ Como20 mins we could be raiding new content or working on progression kills. Do you really enjoy stopping work on progression kills that you nearly have down to go hit up VoA because "it's up"?And yeah, my guild is going to want to run these because it's badges that help with gearing when in reality you get more from practicing your raid coordination. We min-max with the time we have and that means not turning up a chance at badges or running heroics because it'll help a little bit in the long run. My gripe is that Blizzard is turning this game into more of a time sink with old content being forced on us.I love how all these welfare epic types vote down comments like these.

"One would think one could reply without making a personal attack and Fallacious in a post, but I guess that's not the case with you. Now it's my turn: I'm sorry you're butthurt that I have a different opinion of this topic then you.

Blizzard isn't forcing you to raid old content. If your guild wants to get the most badges for the week, then that isn't Blizzard forcing you..that's your guild. Talk to your guild if you don't want to raid that content.Naxx, Ulduar, and later ToC...that won't be content your guild would go through on their own. That's content you can run on your own whenever the hell you want. You won't even need to go through with a full 25-man raid. If your guild is going to force you to do content you don't want to do, then I guess you can leave your guild. But if you actually want to raid for the fun of it, then do so. I personally am going to enjoy going back to Naxx for a reason beyond gearing up an alt or two.Enjoy the content while it lasts. In a few months, it will be worthless.
