Hate to sound like your parents. but GET A JOB...
No seriously... Chores were to teach you to earn the things you want. Just because you earned the money for a car, doesnt mean you can yell at the real estate dealer and tell them, DAMN I just spent the past 3 years paying off my car, and you want me to pay a house payment now?!
Your analogy is close; But incorrect. In this concept it would be like working for 3 years to get the money to buy a car, but then when you go to the car dealership, they say you need to own a house first. The issue with this system -is- for people with jobs. I have always done progression based raiding; I am well aware most hard-core people are stay@home-ers, or students for whatever personal reason. But the few of us who do work, especially in a career, know that these 'time-sinks' have the opposite effect if you can't dedicate many hours per character, per day, to doing something.
Relating dailies to dungeons isn't even close either - Running dungeons are engaging, fun, can change the way it's done. Doing the same-damn-daily-every-day is not even CLOSE to the same thing. The -one- nice thing is most of the dailies are shared loot. However, I still won't do them on my alt.
Which that -does- effect Blizzard. Because right now me not playing my alts is "fine". As long as we "pay the $15 a month" it doesn't change them. Except now instead of playing alts, we'll go do something else. And as with most addictions (Which an MMO is.) once you leave it for a bit, you'll start to realize you didn't enjoy it as much as you thought, until something new and shiny comes out. Which is what happens at the 3 month mark of every content patch ever.
