I'm just not satisfied with the change in direction, or the bull headedness of the development team regarding these changes in direction. I heard there were nerfs to Heroics, but I quit before that happened, the launch embittered me so that I didn't want to come back. I was entering Heroics with raiders gearing up for the first tier, and we were spending hours upon hours in each pounding our heads against a wall, stopping to rethink strategy and pull things from wowhead, and failing until we all quit in frustration, spewing vitriol.That's a very large portion of this burnout, and you failed to point it out, though to be fair none of the wow.joystiq team share the feelings of these people and have thus failed to point out the areas where the expansion is lacking. You have a lot of raiders who have to go through much harder, longer rep grinds, much harder, longer point grinds, much harder and very, very draining heroic grinds for raid gear where each heroic can seemingly last an eternity.These things will burn people out quickly, especially when there's a weak buffer zone between enjoyable leveling content and grinding, I blew through it on both sides and the grind killed it for me.I have decided to skip this expansion because of the change in direction which lead to me feeling burned out with the hope that Blizz will learn and adapt for the next. I will say it's been strange since the launch of Wrath, where we had a perfect gooey center of challenge, grind, and reward, to a bad reward philosophy overgearing people and allowing them to bulldoze content, emphasize the wrong stats and abilities, and then cover statistical wounds with mechanic patches(ICC), and then a complete reversion to BC type content.I and many others did not adore BC, and I hope the next expansion is their best yet having learned from all of this.
