This mirrors the dichotomy between open source and proprietary software. OSS advocates see this as harnessing the creativity of thousands of people, while proprietary advocates just see the mess.Do I want user generated content? I don't think so. For the occasional gem the RNG throws up, you have to wade through a lot of manure. I've participated in a lot of mod and software development and in the end I prefer to see content that some creative and talented people were paid to make. Content that has been thoroughly tested and has been designed with an idea of the big picture, rather than someone's bee in their bonnet.I'm happy with Blizzard's creativity, design and ongoing development and I see no need for anyone else to participate directly. We already have forums, blogs, in-game messaging, PTRs and beta patches to try and influence the game.On the other hand, one thing I would like to see, is being able to play the bosses and adds against raiding players. There would of course, have to be some restrictions on controlling the bosses, but it would add a different feel for all existing dungeons.
