"""Blanket nerfs like this are never good for the game." Oh? They have been doing this for, what 7 years now? I think they know what they are doing."Umm no, they haven't? Naxx wasn't nerfed 20% when ulduar came out, ulduar wasn't nerfed xx% when toc came out, toc wasn't..ICC had raising buff and lasted year.Kara wasn't nerfed when black temple came out. BT wasn't nerfed when Sunwell came out. BC raids were nerfed 20% when 3.0 came out tho.Molten core wasn't nerfed 20%(iirc) when BWL came out. Blackwing lair wasnt nerfed when AQ came around..No, they haven't done this "for 7 years". Gear and getting bosses on farm nerfed the content, not Blizzard. People must remember this, they certainly haven't nerfed old content when new came along like this. This is totally new design philosophy with cataclysm it seems, giving easy access to epics and gear doesn't seem enough to nerf content.And iirc this is FIRST time blanket nerfs are done MIDDLE of tier. Just pointing this out.Personally I'm bit mixed on this. I wouldnt have minded nerfs really close to 4.3 I think middle tier nerfs are not ideal. It makes me feel like this tier is over and done with and only thing left is to farm gear. If 4.3 was around we would be working that. Now its kinda like "well this tier is pretty much done now all we got left is farm gear.." with 4.3 it would be "ok tier12 over lets go kill deathwing". Makes me feel theres "nothing to do" because I like progression and dont care about gear.
