Regular, Heroics, Raids, Heroic Raids.
casuals cry that they cant have everything on the menu: "Please take the spice out of that dish!!!! It's toooooooooo HOT!!!!!!!"
hardcores cry about casuals trying to remove variety from the menu: "Stop trying to make everything on the menu as bland as a slice of wonderbread!!!!!!!!"
There should be room for both folks. Sadly most people can only operate in the extremes. On these forums more often than not it's the squeaky wheel that is not only given the grease, but given credence as well....from both sides of the pew.
given the amount of normal and heroic content, anyone that is honestly casual cannot claim with a straight face that they do not have MORE than enough to do in cata, and with T12 content just around the corner, having easier access to T11 gear will make your mild and medium content even more so. As this expansion progresses so will your access to more and more content, with raid nerfs and future gear improvements more accessible. Once 4.2 is released I believe it is only a matter of time before even the most casual of folks can log in on a friday night and pug any of the T11 normal content, and with each patch progress to see the next tier. They may not see every hardmode encounter this expansion has to offer, but I fail to see the need for some folks to be so selfish as to deny other people from being able to experience hard content that is honestly, well, hard.
With the comming 4.2 raid nerfs I've seen cries about nerfing current content. If its content you've cleared, why would you care? Your armory will show the dates on which you or your guild killed who and what, your personal pride remains intact, and the fact is, if you really are as hardcore as you claim to be, you wont be stepping back into T11 content on your mains again until firelands content is on farm, and even then, just to tie up any loose ends like achievements for drakes and the like. So if you have no intention of ordering that item on the menu again, what do you care if its no longer spicy but rather reduced to medium? It makes no difference whatsoever to your experience, and it allows others to see content that they would not normally have access to. moreover, your alts will have a large pool to draw form on friday night pugs, with several casuals eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see things that you are now long tired of.
You know im right, however, im pretty sure 99.99% of you just complain to hear yourselves complain. casuals and hardcores alike.
