Tired of the term “Casual”
I am going to vent here.
I am sick and tired of hearing about how WOW is “now” catering to the “casual” player and it has ruined the endgame for the competitive player.
I am sorry but that is a load.
Sure, for the elitist PVE (note the distinction because the truly great players IMHO are that one that excel at both PVE and PVP, those PVP players that kick ass are the ones I respect most) endgame has gotten easy and hard modes are more of the same… blah, blah, blah.
There are a lot of us that love gaming, we are good at it, we also enjoy the challenge, but we don’t necessarily meet the time requirements for a elite progression guild.
I am in a social guild with other good players and we are still working on Freya and making Thorim kills go a little easier. Why do you ask? Cause we suck? No, because we typically only raid 6 hours a week. So should raiding be so hard that someone with our time commitment can’t conceivably see all the endgame content? Of course not. On the same note I doubt we will ever get to work on hard modes because the next content will come out before we have a chance. This also means I will never see Algalon so right there you guys have a content claim to fame.
I would like the twilight title and undying title just as much as the next guy but I can’t put in the hours to get it. And that is what Blizzard made for you hard cores guys… so just shut it already.
I know I am not alone in this thinking. I know of other guilds out there at the same level of progression that we are in all with good players.
Do not tell me for 1 second that 25 “casual” players will clear Ulduar. You are full of crap! Sure, 20 real good dedicated players might, might be able to drag 5 noobs through it after all the nerfs are said and done. But to think end game raiding is now “casual”… come on, get a grip.
Do your endgame hard modes, get your cool gear and mounts, and don’t try to belittle the rest of us raiders out here busting our butt every week trying to get through normal raid content. What might be too easy for you is still challenging to the majority of us.
P.S. Please nerf Thorim arena a little and that damn Freya add that one shots me… jk 😉
