I don't think it's a bad thing but it does mean that the game has less depth and longevity than it once had.It's now possible for a casual player to take a new character from level 1 to end-game gear in a few days /played. In a way I quite like that as I am (these days) a casual player myself, and it's convenient to be able to get 95% of the game's rewards in so little time. It's only heroic raid and arena gear that requires a longer time investment.So ... that's fine. Only thing is, for the first time in WoW's history, it's now possible to "finish" the game quite quickly. I think this may lead to people only staying subscribed for a few weeks, and for much faster churn of the playing population.But again, that's not necessarily bad. Back in BC I was a great deal less casual and racked up 150 days /played on my main, and I know that's low compared to many. You *could* argue that it's that kind of game and that kind of behaviour which is odd, and that we shouldn't expect a single game to suck up >2% of our conscious lifespans. Perhaps a quick-in/quick-out WoW will be a happier and healthier place?
