You can see scoreboards on WoWProgress for DPS, Healing, and Tank endless.

Is it really a myth though? Maybe those rising aren't complaining, a silent majority? This btw is why people play Vanilla.
Our data suggested it was a myth. Note that "not everyone should be able to do this" is a fine answer too. (OccupyGStreet)
How do you feel about it now? Was the data right? Did the myth have some truth?
I think "hard" is just a difference audience. You have to choose. But you can't make hard stuff intended for easy players. (OccupyGStreet)
I love Dark Souls. But that's because it is targeted at gamers like me, not ALL gamers. (OccupyGStreet)
hard is what people want. It's human psychological. You feel more accomplished when finishing something hard.
*If* you finish. If you quit because it's too hard or you don't want hard then the developer lost a player. (OccupyGStreet)
if you don't want hard then why play. We are already wasting time on a game, why not make it rewarding?
There are a lot of easy games that are popular. I think that's fine. (OccupyGStreet)
My caution for developers is decide who your audience is and don't try to be all things to all players. (OccupyGStreet)
looking at that. I am wondering was cata bad move? Players seems more acceptance to this model rather than WOD simple pruning
It depends if your intended audience is engaged players who want more or returning / lapsed players who might be overwhelmed. (OccupyGStreet)
