So you want to breed new raiders into thinking content is easy so they can face plant in firelands and turn around to blizzard and get a a big ol' nerf... People in this game *!#!!ing that these, saying they are a good thing, are moronic. It a big care bear mentality that should stop but wont.
If you're in a decent raiding guild already, I don't see how this 'new' breed is going to affect you all that much.
This is what it gets down to, a lot of the qq is coming from people that will see little to no direct affect from these nerfs. It's just more complaining for the sake of complaining it seems.
Though I don't really care about the nerfs, I'm not entirely sure if you know how it affects us. It really trivializes things, it'd be different if the current content was in fact hard and needed a necessary nerf, but the fact is it really isn't. People shout ineptitude and blame it on a lack of time/family/work/etc. while continuously asking for nerfs to content to cater to their time schedule not realizing that this game is in fact one that requires TIME.
The assumption is, most people will skip normal BWD/BoT/To4W to do Firelands, as it happened in Wrath. People will not raid old content unless it's for achievements because they want to have the current gear. It affects those raiders because that sense of challenge will be diminished by the mere fact of having it nerfed, not keeping in mind that the same content will be easier when people over-gear it (let's not forget that you don't need to be in full 359/Tier 11 to down the content). If you played Wrath, how easy was it to faceroll Naxx when you were in 232/245 ilvl gear?
I understand what Blizzard is trying to do, which is to get more people to see content. However I think it's a double-edged sword. How much do you want to bet that the forums will be filled with people asking for nerfs to Firelands content, while claiming ridiculous reasons for the nerfs like "I HAVE A FAMILY/JOB/SOCIAL LIFE TO WORRY ABOUT" or "I DON'T HAVE TIME TO RUN BWD/BoT/To4W, I WANT TO GET INTO FIRELANDS NOW"? Or how learning how to play a game "is a chore/shouldn't be a second job" while having the journal implemented and tons of already released video and strategies to help them? This is how a significant amount of threads in General read.
