Blizzard has struck a happy medium with the latest style of nerfing. In the article, if the guild really felt that they were making progress on Ragnaros pre-nerf they could turn off the 5% bump and keep going at their own pace. I'm actually in favor of them slowly nerfing new content even while it's still the current raid tier so that there can be no mistake that when the next content comes, all the people who want to race (whether it's on a server, regional or world level) start on as equal a footing as possible. Add to this, the game has been out 7 1/2 years. For those of us who have been playing the entire time (I just turned 29 yesterday), our lives are considerably different than they were when wiping on a boss for a month in BWL was the norm. I'm thankful I don't have to spend an hour+ farming consumables for every night I want to raid. I'm happy that I don't have to spend 10+ minutes simply running back to a boss after a wipe (hello AQQ40). I'm also happy that as a raid cycle goes on, my guild becomes able to clear everything in 4, then 3, then usually 2 nights towards the end. While it would be nice if Blizzard implemented some kind of feat of strength for clearing content without assistance from whatever hero is a part of the story for the current raid, that's probably not going to happen. That said, for people who want everything to be hardcore like the old days, I respect that and Blizzard does too. Turn off the nerfs and do your own thing, the satisfaction of overcoming the challenge is what you're after yes?
