Who said it was for raiders and hardcore players only? o_O If anything, there's way more content for the casual player in the expansion than ever before....and it's not at the expense of the hardcore player as well.....FUN FOR EVERYONE! I know, how dare Blizzard cater to everyone! :P

Yeah, sounds like someone was trolling (especially the casubad part...) IIRC at Blizzcon they were highlighting things they were adding specifically for people who just wanted to come on and play for 20 minutes; daily quests to get valor/justice points, scenarios, and a few other things described as "things to do with your max level character besides raid."

Its the same thing every expansion. Hardcore raider: Blizz only caters to casuals now!Casual player: Blizz doesn't care about casuals, they only cater to the hardcore raiding crowd!As a hard mode raider that cares about what I can do outside of raids, I'm really excited about this expansion.

I wouldn't say Mists is about Casual OR Hardcore but rather Casual AND Hardcore. Cataclysm was about fixing the leveling experience and, IMO, set the groundwork for Mists to be focused on the end-game content. There's a TON of stuff to do no matter how much time you have for the game.

I think that this Casual vs. Hardcore dicotomy is B.S. and has no real place in WoW.WoW is the most mainstream and widespread MMO there is. You don't get 10 million subscribers by catering to only one niche (be it Hardcores, Casuals, Roleplayers, w/e).Blizz wants everybody to have something to do: Raiders, 5-man runners, BG fans, Arena Junkies, even roleplayers..The problem is this false thinking that some people have that "Pet battles take time that could be used for Raid developement or fixing PvP imbalance". No, it's not. Those things are handled by different departments/offices/whatever.
