You expect to get the same things with easier content? It was made explicitly clear that Naxx was introductory meaning it taught the basics and gave the gear so that you can move on to harder stuff. The harder stuff meaning ulduar. Harder also might mean T8 might not be so easy to get *GASP*
The whole point of 10 man raids is so everyone can SEE the illidans and the kiljadens of the world. Along with SEEING you get an appropriate level of challenge tuned to 10 people, and WITH that you get an appropriate level of gear to get you thru those challenges. No where did blizz say you get the best of the best and it was EXPLICITLY said that you will get lower tier loot.
"[Blizz]decided that it was fine to make us rely on boss drops for tier gear"
THE most idiotic sentence said about WoW ever, this has been the core mechanic for raiding since MC. You kill the big bad guys, you get matching armor. I get that they gave us a nice surprise when we could buy 2 pieces of T7/7.5 with "you killed a boss"dollars but to get MAD when they take that away from you and say they are glossing over 10-man raids, cmon!
Its not like they are taking away tier piece away from 10 man raids, its that now that you are sufficiently gear from your T7/7.5 you shouldnt need MORE badged tier loot to supplement you in raids. 10 mans will get harder (because you are now seeing bosses that are more powerful than those in naxx) and surprise surprise you might just need to supplement your suck with something other than gear.
TL;DR? you get the crude version of the rant, STOP CRYING! YOU NEED TO KILL THINGS AND HOPE TO GOD IT DROPS WHAT YOU NEED, and if it doesnt RINSE AND FUCKING REPEAT like the rest of us!
Apr 12th 2009 6:28AM What kind of article is this? Everything you wrote is pure speculation with nothing to back it up.
"Yes, there may be a mystery fifth project, but an expansion announcement is far more likely at this point."
Yeah? and you know this to is 100% true how ?
"If there's a raid coming in 3.2, they've been incredibly mum about it...(more BS)...I have my reasons for doubting it, but there's still time for me to be proven wrong."
Please tell us those reasons because SURELY you at least one more than, "blizz cant make a new BG and raid instance at the same time!"
Then for the other half of your so called article you just went on and on about what the next expansion could be instead of elaborating on the TITLE "why we should expect a expansion announcement at blizzcon".
OH by the way, saying "I anticipate", "Im willing to put money on", "We've had a lot of hints and solid information(where is it b/c I dont see it in this article)" DOESNT give you credibility it makes you look like a know-it-all and an ignorant douche. It also doesnt reflect well on you as a blogger, reporter, definitely not as journalist and the worse bit, it wastes reader's time!
