Completely agree with the article. Here's hoping Blizz listens to the community and realizes that instances can and should be fun rather than the monotonous chore they have been for months.I fear that like Necromann mentioned they will simply make the new 5 mans their own tier and in a few months we'll be in the same boat, except we'll be running those dungeons until our eyes bleed instead of the trolls.

I'm not sure how many people remember this, but for a long time after the ICC 5-mans were introduced, it was common to see half or even all of your random PUG members drop group within seconds of zoning in.Basically, they were harder than 3.0 dungeons. Why risk wasting time on wipes when you could drop/requeue into a faceroll dungeon for easy points?There were all types of shady activities during that time. Some PUGers would act like complete asshats, trying to get vote-kicked out so they wouldn't get the Deserter debuff. Others would hold their spot for ransom until they've been booted, simply sitting still in the mean time.I'm not necessarily against combining Current Tier dungeons with Previous Tier dungeons, but we've been here before, and it would be helpful if the past was taken into consideration.

My suggestion would to be drop the points earnt difference. Make the troll dungeons 1.5x the points a 'normal' heroic dungeon would give. With the added length of the troll dungeons, this seems a fair time to points investment. Then when new dungeons are added, they can change the differential again - say 2x for the new ones, 1.5 troll ones, 1 for 'normal' ones.
