I will be the *first* to say that I can't wait for this. I'm a casual. YAY FOR ME.

I agree with what you say, but not the way you said it. Thus I cant decide if I should vote you up or down. Pondering......My hatred of people posting "first" has overridden my agreement with your statement. Down voted. Sorry!

Rereading my reply, I realize that I may have come off as a bit of a jerk. Not my intention.With the exception of the five-letter F word, I echo your sentiments. I consider myself a Casual player - I'm not a raider, and I don't PvP, so my end game options are pretty much limited to 5 mans and dailies. In addition, I've got minimal free time during the week, so being able to run a couple dungeons on a weekend and still get credit as if I had done them on individual days sounds outstanding to me.

I like this because it is very similar to the way honor and conquest works, where you have a weekly limit to the amount of points you can accrue. This seems very fair since after all you can still only get 70*7=490pts per week from heroics YET earn more still thru raiding. So yeah the more casual players still feel a level of accomplishment and not just the hardcore raiders!

I like the change for an additional reason. Usually, I can play every day. Sometimes I'll skip for some reason. Weekly points make that nice. The other side, is that running as dps, I'm at the whim of a group. If my group doesn't complete the run and I don't have time for a second try, I don't get my points. If it's a weekly cap, I may luck out and get two runs in that can compensate on another day.
