So then the issue really is basically the difficulty level of Firelands, the fact that the newest content isn't puggable?
Again, I wasn't lucky enough to start cata in guild that blew through content. Blame it on me if you must, maybe I am a BAD. But without the previous tiers experience and the current tuning of t12 what chance do I, or many like me have at running firelands while its current? I guess I'm supposed to be happy that i can supposedly pug t11 and just shut up about it? Because thats the vibe I'm getting here
No, I'm not assuming you are a bad. There are a large number of variables that could make Firelands inaccessible to you in its current implentation.
I simply disagree that "your demographic" is being ignored. Blizzard nerfed tier 11 for the more casual (not bad, casual) or time limited player. At the same time, they brought out a new raid tuned for "my demographic", and new hard modes tuned for a third demographic.
I'm also not suggesting you shut up about anything, sorry if you got that vibe. Like I said, I understand wanting to be in the newest, flashiest content. But I do think that whether or not content is current is relative to whether or not you've completed it, not how recently it was released.
I'm happy with the results of Blizzard's current efforts to please multiple player-bases. I understand you aren't, mostly because of the difficulty level of Firelands it sounds like, or perhaps its more the time commitment it requires.
Would you rather Blizzard ignored my middle-ground demographic and simply made new raids easy mode so that all, or most, players have access to them? That doesn't seem like a viable option to me, if I want to continue to enjoy the game.
