Definition for gated:
(Gaters) Stargate fandom is a community of people actively interested in the military science fiction film Stargate and the television...
So look, Gated isn't the exact same definition of fun too!!!!
Merciless can be fun, there's people who enjoy it. WoW had this thing, where they made the end bosses and end raids merciless. It allowed people who play more than 2 hours a week to have content.
The people who only play 2 hours had dozens of bosses, while the 2 or 3 for people with dedicated, time and skill were "Inaccessible" (Much like a wheelchair ramp isn't considered legal unless there's a person to push you up it, Right?) to people who reforge spirit on their DK.
So far, everything in this expansion is making me feel like I'm compartmentalized. I can't raid until Blizzard lets me, I cant fly til Blizzard let's me. I can't battle pet's until Blizzard let's me. I guess Blizzard took the "WE DONT LIKE BABYSITTING PEOPLE" from LFR and decided to babysit everyone now. When's nap time?
