@RajahThe idea that you can just "turn off" the buff and everything is fine is shortsighted and borderline ridiculous when you understand the full scope of the implications. Blizzard presents it as if it were a choice, and in the "dog eat dog" world of Azeroth (and the competitive world of hard mode raiding), it simply is not.

Previous points you yourself have made contradict what you say. You said that it wasn't that you cared about others...You just wanted it hard for you, but when the option to turn it off is there, you'd leave it on, because what you're actually concerned about the competition. You don't care about the challenge, except the challenge within competing. But the truth is, the competitive guilds have really already cleared it...and the nerf doesn't change the competition, everyone just suddenly gets to progress a little more if they'd hit a wall on bosses. You say it's wrong to nerf the fights while the content is relevant, but I say it's past time for 100% boss health/dmg to be relevant. Now it's time to take into fact that it's a game and people should enjoy playing it for the fun of PLAYING it. Blizzard has stated that they start imposing the nerfs when they watch a majority of guilds reach a barrier where no one is progressing. For some it's Heroic Morchok. For some like our guild, it's 5/8. But the top guilds HAVE cleared this already, so it's time for a "new competition". You had your shot at being the top of the 100%, now take 95% tier and compete for it. If you TRULY love the hard modes and not the competition, turn the buff off.

Again, an irrelevant comment. It's as if people don't read or comprehend. The complaint thread on the official forums about the nerfs went up less than 24 hours ago and is up to 154 pages. Bear in mind it is just one thread of many. It heavily discusses the reality that the "buff switch" is merely an illusion of choice for most involved in heroic content.
