This is just the natural progression cycle of the game these days and it has been for some time now. It's not like BC where you could walk around in your Sunwell gear and literally have mobs of groupies following you around from the 90% (warning: made up statistic) of raiding guilds that were still stuck in the first tier of raiding. The game now ushers players of all skill levels and lifestyles into the current tier and awards them the same model of gear no matter what difficulty they wear. If you want to measure epeen, you have ranking of wowprogress showing where your guild stands on your server, gear just hasn't served that purpose in so long.I used to raid hardcore with a guild that cleared sunwell in BC. I'll let you in on a secret. Yes those guilds have some amazing players. But an enormous amount of players have the potential to clear content like that if they only had no other restraints on their time and some people to teach them how to understand the game. That's how I was. I was terrible but I got a lucky shot to join an amazing guild and I learned how to play. I wasn't "carried" as I did rise quickly to the point that I could top the meters at times and fulfilled the roles given to me, but the difference was my availability and opportunity (and of course willingness to cooperate, but that's more a personal choice.) I just don't think that any of that, outside of the cooperativeness, is legitimate reason to get to see more content. The nerfs are a wonderful thing for the game and its playerbase and nothing blizzard does can ever change what you and your guild achieved.
