Adding distinction to those that do "achieve" success within elements of the game as they are originally intended would help appease, that is for certain, however, removing the OPTION to experience that level of difficulty is not solved by this, and to be honest, neither is the LFR system, because they have already stated that they are prepared to nerf the 4.3 content once they are comfortable with the numbers that have already completed it.Sure, those that don't want other's to obtain the same recognition as them are covered by this, but what about those that are outside of that curve?Firelands is a lovely example of this. Guilds were progressing slowly, more so than the previous 5 tiers, and for a number of raiders caught up in this, it was frustrating and detrimental to what they want out of the game. The problem is, this wasn't true for EVERYONE that was caught up in this. My guild, for example, only reached 4/7 normal prior to the nerfs, but we were enjoying the challenge without it resorting to our RLs pulling their hair out.We lost that challenge, and we can't get it back, because frankly, the HC encounters, even with their nerfs, are above our station. I was actually thankful that we had a really bad night this week and had a wipefest on Beth'tilac. If we can balance our group well enough with undergeared, underexperienced players, then we can just about get a challenge for the first 6 bosses again, but that means we have to overcome our raiders instead of overcoming the encounters...They need to leave normal and heroic alone. If players are struggling with a certain version, then it's up to them to solve it, not Blizzard. The LFR is a blessing in this sense, as it means those that struggle in Normal mode actually have somewhere to go, but they have to be allowed to come back to that challenge if they think they've learnt enough from LFR.
