I agree with much of the sentiment in these comments. The accessibility of Wrath was its strength in my opinion, not its weakness as some have claimed. I feel that Blizzard may have taken the criticisms and feedback of the hardcore minority a bit too far in that direction.This isn't a learn to play issue. I've been playing since release back in '04, and am quite familiar with how to play the game well. I spent a good couple of years during my time in Azeroth with a hardcore mentality, and that sort of play style leads to a high degree of burnout. As the game became more and more accessible, I was thrilled to find I could still play casually while still feeling like I had a good shot at seeing the content.Cataclysm just feels like a step in the wrong direction. I always thought heroic mode raids were there to cater to the hardcore minority. Normal modes should be accessible. For the most part, Wrath hit the nail on the head in that regard. As it stands right now, the time investment required for normal mode progression is putting off a lot of my closest friends in game. We're already looking for other games to play as a group, and that's something we've never considered in all our years playing wow together.
