I think it failed too, and tbh I disagree with it a bit. Not because of gearing alts, that should be easy, and making the currency or gear Account Bound will fix that. However new players are thrown into content outside of their experience level too quickly.Amazing as it is there are still people new to the game, and them going from greens to purples overnight and putting them into more difficult content leaves them confused and the group on the floor mad at them because they expect them to know their class. And by lvl 85 heroics you really should.Account binding the currency will lower the horrible grind for alts while still allowing new players time to learn the ins and outs of their class in appropriately balanced content.At least that is how I see it.

I agree with this. When I started playing, I wasn't ready for BT and ZA which were current at the time, heck I was barely ready for nerfed kara. And nerfed kara is what I did, and I learned.One part not mentioned in this conversation was that Blizzard sort of expected this, and made tier 11 so that once tier 12 was released, it was nerfed and available.The real issue was that people wanted no part in doing tier 11, which was complete lack of forsight and taking the "I just want to see content" hook, line, AND sinker. That was a precursor to many of us about LFR, that it really is just about the gear. That leaves us in a tricky spot of how to let all players of all skill levels equipping the newest content, because frankly - people don't want to equip their skill level - they want to equip Vodka's skill level.I can't change this community, I can't make it less materialistic. Simple people, are....well simple. I am greatly enjoying star wars, but I do hope Blizzard produces something worth playing this summer.
