@ Dragoniel- that argument is completely invalid. Blizzard is a publicly traded company, so actually they don't even own themselves, they, and their game are owned by the shareholders. the very creation of the game is financed by OUR MONEY, that we pay to them. if we don't like what we're getting, and we stop paying, they run out of money and the game ceases to exist. If Blizzard (or any company of that matter) values their continued existence, let alone profit, they have an obligation to make the game their customers want it. otherwise they don't make money and they fail. thats just how business works. we as consumers have every right to make demands of something that we're paying $15 a mont for.this is one of the only sites I've seen where most of the player feedback is positive. while I'm not going to totally jump on the blizz-hating bandwagon, neither am I going to side with the fanboys. the fact is that some things are done very well, and other things aren't. there are aspects of Cata that I love, and others that I hate. for instance, the dungeons themselves as well as the questing content is immensely enjoyable, however I find we burn through most of it far too quickly and then are stuck in an immense grind to experience the last bit. I feel that by attempting to cater to a wider percentage of the player base, the "casuals" instead of the "hardcores" they are instead pleasing neither and simply creating a grind for everybody. nobody likes the grind. its become not a matter of easy or hard to get gear, but endless grind. if they want people to raid faster and get to content quicker, make it quicker to gear, not longer. if they want people to have to work harder, make it more challenging, not just bury us under a sea of endless dailies.the blog itself mostly made sense to me, and I agree with much of what was said, but that doesn't make any of the problems that have been pointed out by countless people any less problematic, and while I hate trolls as much as the next man, I wouldn't demonize anyone who voices dissent either.as for separating PVP, and PVE, I feel strongly that its a good idea in theory, but understand that it would be incredibly difficult to implement satisfactorily.
