Without trying to start a flame war, I'm going to try and explain why the elitist attitude is so strong in WoW. When it started, it was a super nerdy game, and didn't only reward min-max thinking, it demanded it! If you didn't want to put in the effort it required to be elitist, you couldn't even ATTEMPT end game raids like Onyxia. Some of the people still playing, started playing because this was a game you could go to that catered to that play style. It's understandable for people to be upset that that niche doesn't exist anymore, elitists don't really get their own dungeon anymore, just harder versions of, what is by then, "old" content. We've kind of been left out in the cold, and for no reason other than there's less of us. I realize the vocal majority of us are jerks, but we're not all like that. We just want our games to bash us in the face repeatedly, with the more consequences for screwing up the better. Nothing feels better than overcoming (seemingly) impossible odds.
