Am i the only person who is actually bothered by this? I raid 3 nights a week because that is what i have time to commit for. I don't consider myself casual by any means, just busy. My guild was 6/7 heroic fl pre nerf. I simply don't have the time or desire to raid more than 3 nights a week, and that is exactly what this is going to force our guild to do in order to keep up. I find this to be absolutely ridiculous on blizzs part. Any one else out there with a job and a social life have an issue with this? I really think that blizzard is losing touch with their customers....

There's quite a few people on the forum that feel the way you do. Korea and Taiwan may have a playerbase that can handle this, but NA and EU may not. I think they need to look into it more. As it is, it's current raids so all those who think it's just gonna be old stuff... well, news to them. Those able to make the raids will be able to sail through content and everyone else will fall behind twice as fast. This presents problems for raid leads too, since it's going to be painfully obvious not everyone can raid every night of the week.Let's hope they change their minds.

My sentiments exactly. I spend way too much time in WoW already, if I raided 5 times a week just on my main I'd never have time for anything else. And no, it's not just me who decides, it's me and 24 others that I'm raiding with. This could potentially cause a lot of discord in guilds :-S

This will only apply to old raids. If your raid group is already geared, it won't change a thing, unless you want more disenchant fodder. If you are undergeared, it's your chance to catch up to the faster guilds.The only worthwhile reward for already geared groups, after all, are points, and those are still capped per week.

Not sure I agree with your assertion that you won't be able to "keep up", whatever that means. You will still be able to progress exactly as fast as you did before this change. Absolutely nothing will change for you. This is only being implemented on past tiers of content, so even relative to the other guilds on your realm, you'll all be progressing at the same speed as before this change. It sounds like you would prefer Blizzard to throttle everyone else's playing time to fit your social calendar in order to restrict anyone else from raiding borderline-obsolete content more often than you'd like to.
