The bigger concern is how this is going to affect the upcoming tier. These nerfs are massive. It's going to create a sizable skill gap between this tier and the Demon Soul. Going from firelands to the first boss in T13 will be soul crushing on a level not seen since going from 30% buff ICC to T11 content. Groups will develop unreasonable expectations of their own progression, and when they fail to meet those expectations, they'll quit, just like all the players in T11 did when they found out just how much they relied on the 30% buff. I'm not sure how effective the new "derp mode" raids will be at buffering this out. Will guilds that became accustomed to clearing firelands on normal be satisfied with with getting brickwalled in normal and having to split loot with the worst humanity has to offer in the LFR pugs? Blanket nerfs like this are never good for the game.
