"Catering to the hard core minority and ignoring everyone else was a massive mistake."quoted for truth... and there are so many other quotes that the excellent wow insider commenters have put out there.I don't know if GC or the developers ever read 3rd party websites, but someone should give a community lead or a developer or GC the link to this article. There is an overwhelming amount of logic and heartfelt truth in everyone's responses, and I hope at least some of this makes it to the higher-ups at blizzard.As far as Rift, I can speak on why people are leaving wow for Rift, but I won't, because this is about wow. Rift simply is at the right place and the right time for where WoW is faltering, and the main focus here is why is WoW faltering. And you brought up some more excellent points to advance that discussion.

I too hope someone who has the ears of the devs tells them about this conversation. Unfortunately (and I never thought I'd say this about Blizzard), I'm not sure if anyone would really listen - I feel like Blizzard's focus is somewhere else these days (maybe Titan, maybe finishing Diablo 3, etc.), and it feels like the response to WoW player concerns these days are mostly about sustaining, not growing, the community - encouraging people to stay through the easiest methods possible (ZG and ZA, I'm looking at you). I'm just not sure how much Blizzard cares these days about making WoW a better game - I think the Cataclysm dev team - particularly the folks focusing on 1-60 - did a great job, but I get the feeling Blizzard has moved on to other things, which makes me sad.
