@SmashboltWow, after reading your response, I have to say - I wish I had said it that well. I think my posts (especially those in the past) have been too laden with my frustration about what I perceive to be Blizzard making WoW to easy - it has tended to sound like the stock "Quit dumbing down for the bads" line we have been hearing from the so-called "hard cores". I would prefer to have a discussion that didn't divide the WoW gaming community into the "haves" (the hard-core) and the "have-nots" (the casuals) because it just starts an "us v. them" battle among the player base. I just happen to be of the opinion that there is nothing wrong with making advanced content harder to see, harder to reach and harder to conquer; nor is there anything wrong with expecting players to invest large amounts of time to reach it. But you raise an EXCEPTIONAL point - if they are going to raise the bar to raid back to BC and earlier levels, they need to have an engaging alternative that appeals to and is rewarding for the casual player who either wishes not to or does not have the freedom to invest large blocks of time in playing the game.I just deeply wish we could return to the earlier model, because I think it hit that balance better than the slippery slope I think we are on now.
