What's missing from that statement, though, is the all important "... for me." "Cataclysm killed that game FOR ME."The transition from Wrath to Cataclysm was very harsh. I don't think there are many people who would argue against this. Personally, I leveled from being a level 80, take on all comers, nothing can kill me tank to a level 85, heroics are rough, I hate people and my gear gear isn't good enough tank in less than a week. That's quite a change in so short a time-frame. (Interestingly, I'd say that Cataclysm seems to have killed my tank for me- though it has allowed me to play my original main again...)Some might say that Blizzard over-corrected for what some people saw as Wrath being too easy. Interestingly, for every person who quit because Cata was too hard, you'll probably find a guy (take TotalBiscuit, for example) who quits because they eventually nerfed it to make it easier. The problem is that people are far too willing to extrapolate their own experience onto everyone else. We actually are all unique snowflakes- we all have different experiences in the game that drive how we see the game in the end.
