Comments like this "Today I'm focusing just on Lich King (rather than all of Icecrown Citadel) because I think most PvEers are working on the fight at some level of difficulty now. " are kind of a petpeve of mine on most WoW blogs. Seriously NOT everyone is on the Lich King. My 10-man raiding group only started up around July and we only have up to festergut on farm. We spent an hour last week wiping on Rotface before we got him for the second time ever (first time was months ago and must have been beginners luck cause it was also our first try). We only raid 1 day a week for 2.5hrs, this past week being the first one we extended the raid lock out so we could work on progression. We are trying to find a second night that can work for us to get some progression going, but I'm not sure if we will see the Lich King before Dec 7 even with that.So I would just like to make it known, that not every one is as far along as you assume (and you aren't the only one who has made this type of assumption).

I've had one comment like this before and I just don't get it... What is it that upsets you? Is it wrong for me to assume you guys are very capable players? Does it not come off that way? Because that's how I feel. WoWProgress says 60-80% of guild groups are 11/12 on 10 man, and that's not counting pugs. I also think the average WoW Insider reader is a bit ahead of other players, and the comments I get each week seem to reflect that. I don't know why you'd be upset at my assumption - if you were upset at the lack of coverage for other content then I'd understand that, but just the assumption doesn't make sense to me. Please don't think I am trying to mock you when I say these things. You yourself pointed out the lightness of your schedule as the reason for being behind. Why let yourself get offended when you have a complete understanding of how and why you are different than most players? Please know I do my best to accommodate my readers, and honestly I wrote this article specifically in response to some e-mails people wrote me. If you had written me an e-mail on any issue, I would try to do the same thing for you if it was appropriate for a broad audience. I want to write for my readers as best as I can but I only have so much information to go off on if people don't tell me.
