Time Crunched seems where I'm at. Would love to do hard modes, progress, and get kick ass gear, but time constraints of a very tough school doesn't let me do that. Also the lack of a progressive guilds on a not so progressive server doesn't help either.Still, I do what I can and hope to at least beat LK before Cata.

I think a lot of people fall under time-crunched. And (assuming we were back to a 2-word list) that would be where I originally put my top line for "casual." To me, hardcore/non-casual meant (or used to mean) that you were somehow scheduling your life around WoW, regardless to whether or not it took priority. For example, if you raided Tuesday nights from 8 to 11, I considered that hardcore. If you raided Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday nights from 8 to 3 am, and if friends called you over for a party would have to decline, I considered that hardcore. If you raided Tuesday nights from 8 to 10, but would still skip out if other pressing events happened, I would have *still* considered that hardcore.Of course, a finer list is much more appropriate, since people far too often make judgments between the two and generalize enormously.

@NoahI sort of disagree. I do scheduled raids to keep it Casual. Of course, my guild's raid groups only play 2 nights/week for 2 hours each. I'm too Time Crunched to commit to much more.

I suppose that's fair. But then again, some people would refer to any sort of raiding as hardcore — that's where Rich's list comes in, I guess.

I would consider myself Time Crunched. I have one night a week scheduled for dedicated raiding - my wife and I call it my "Bowling Night" - and otherwise I play here and there as time permits, but not seriously. I almost never consistently get in a random everyday for frosts.I think hardcore/progressive/competitive definitely means raiding multiple (2+) nights a week for 3 or 4 hours at a time.Thankfully for us "Crunchies," we can extend raid lockouts! The LK will go down yet!
