They shouldn't let us see the deathwing fight. That's what I loved about ICC; they never let US test the lich king, they just let us test every other boss. I know I don't have to test him, but IMHO, it'd be a lot better if they just tested the big guy themselves, and let us test every other boss.

I'm not a fan of it either, but with how unique and different the mechanics are supposed to be for his encounters I can't imagine any good would come from Blizz not testing those fights on a public server before hand.

They didn't let us test Sinestra, and that led to people at Blizzard literally having to sit there and make adjustments/hotfixes on the fly as the first guild to attempt it discovered major bugs like, "Oh, our Death Knight almost accidentally one shot her with Dark Simulacrum."I don't think it's fair to ask Blizzard to forgo their quality control -- and be forced to be "on call" and ready 24/7 for whenever a guild does reach Deathwing to monitor it as they fight -- just so that the first few guilds who reach them can feel like it's a mystery.Especially when those guilds will then turn around and post the exact same videos that you wanted the rest of the population protected from anyway.
