@Plastic Rat It saddens me to say this but we reasonable people are now the minority after Wrath. Everyone wants the 20 minute dungeon that awards epics instead of the challenge. If Retisgimped posted his opinion when wrath came out, people would be downvoting him telling him he is unreasonable. But I have come to accept that Wrath has fostered this mentality of everything being quick and easy and people like him are now the majority. You and me are now the minority as most of the people who think like us and who actually want a challenge have left the game for other games. I have found myself playing less and less as well and if not for my friends I would not be playing this game any more. It saddens me to see how far this game that could have been the greatest game in history has fallen. It is no longer about the epic experience of going through a dungeon and working towards a goal but more about completing a dungeon as fast as possible and collecting loot. Anything that takes more than 30 minutes is now considered hard, unaccessible or unreasonable. People like us who enjoy the game for its challenge and not because of purple pixels are now called elitists, nerds or worse. It's a game they say. We're already stressed in our real life, why should we put any more effort into a game. A game is supposed to be fun, they say. But I say to myself, where is the fun if we do not control our destinies? Where is the fun if the only possibility is that of success, even if we do not deserve it? Blizzard themselves who created this game originally to cater to people like us who want a challenge have gone away from this philosophy and moved towards designing a game that will retain the most customers. Keep feeding them epics and they will continue to play they say. What Blizzard doesn't know is that easy modes are turning us real fans of the game away and once the allure of epics wear out these people who are just in it for the purples will be gone as well. Downvote me all you want. This is just one man's humble opinion and hopefully there are enough of us out there who share the same views
