    This is what I propose:

    No more heroic raids, one raid fits all but keep a learning to raid for those that just want to experience and learn, they can decide if they want to get into the true spirit of raiding or not.

    Give the raid back to the raiders. The others can have their 5 mans - quests - farming - pets - pvp and what not.

    Oh..so the 95% subscription fee shall once agin be used to just make raids for the 5%? And then the 95% have to be content that once every xpac they get a patch with new dailies and/or 5 mans?

    Nice try. Don't give up your dayjob to become a game-designer ^^

    Blizzard will never go back and I say good. This sort of elitism is the reason so many game communities are so negative.

    Really you don't think "raiders" are the minority?

    Let's let all the "raiders" pay the $15 a month and the rest of us are F2P...than we'll see what kind of content you get delivered. Good luck with that. The rest of us pay just as much as you so we should be able to see the same content.

    BC tells a diff story, it worked like a dream then and it can now. Don't raid if you dont want to but why do people insist on ruining it for others?
    The logic can be used right back at you. Why should raiding be removed from the majority of players because you want harder content than is made available? Why do people like yourself insist on ruining it for others?

    Catering to 1% of customers at the expense of the others is suicide.
    Catering to 99% is common sense.

    "Give raiding back to the raiders. By taking away heroic raids!"

    honestly? i don't see how that makes any sense to anyone.
    if the "casuals" didn't raid normal modes, you wouldn't have any raids.
    What would be the point of making one raid (that's on a heroic raid level)
    that a minuscule amount of people will be able to clear, and deny it to the
    rest of the player base when that would just piss them off and make you
    lose you their buisness?

    It's like selling a product at a baseball game you know only 30 people will
    buy when you could have been selling something 3000 people would buy.

    Exactly correct. If only Blizzard would implement a version of these raids that is tuned to be more difficult. That way the hardcore raiders who want a challenge have content while people who are not willing to dedicate that much time/effort still are able to access the content.

    Oh, wait....
    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.

    Back in BC, the model worked well and the sub numbers increased and increased. Past history points to backing up what I am saying. I cannot do anything about the people who put words in my mouth That were never said. That is just a weak way of trying to express an opinion.

    who said they shouldn't raid? they just shouldn't be carried... they wanna clear a raid then put some fucking effort and learn how to play... heck pugs are clearing normal modes no problem nowdays ...

    Exactly this. I am a heroic raider, although I do it pretty casually (hoping to get a little bit more hardcore in MoP, new job and stuff), I think posts like yours, OP, just don't make sense. Of course, having something others don't have does make it more valuable to you, but aren't heroic only mounts, achievements and titels enough for you?

    here is my simple question

    if there is three difficulties, LFR, Normal, Heroic, right? Heroic is essentially what you want, it would be your one difficulty, the end goal, what people strive to get better for, so they can experience it, not just do ezmode stuff, correct? okay, then tell me... why can`t you pretend that is the case now? LFR, normal, they don`t have to effect you at all, except how much you choose to let them.

    Back in BC, the model worked well and the sub numbers increased and increased. Past history points to backing up what I am saying. I cannot do anything about the people who put words in my mouth That were never said. That is just a weak way of trying to express an opinion.
    back in TBC, the game was still GROWING, people were still LEARNING about the game, at some point some things in the world reach a point where growth is no longer possible in large scale. i was fortunate enough to raid hardcore and complete content, but I know the majority of people were stuck in kara the ENTIRE expansion, i know people who were stuck on lurker and could only farm loot reaver. the numbers didn`t increase because of the model that was in place, in fact if i had a choice now "would you play this game now or years ago in TBC" my answer would be now.

    You have no idea what an elitist is, and you need to stop running the word into ground, it's irritating.

    Sorry, but this is, by definition, elitist. It is a question of supply and demand coupled with pure jealousy. The way it stands right now, raiders have access to rewards and difficulty levels that allow them to raid just as they did in the past. If there aren't enough people motivated to spend that kind of energy/effort into the game, then it is clearly not what the people who play the game "want." If however, you find that you are able to scrounge up the folks necessary to raid in the manner you want, again, there is absolutely no reason not to let casuals SEE the content and get rewards LESSER to the ones you get for Normal and Heroic versions of the raids.

    Pure and simple elitism.

    I was a hard-core raider through Wrath, then I got a job which prevented me from devoting as much time to the game. I welcome LFR wholeheartedly because it allowed me to participate and not just see videos of the end of the expansion. I fail to see how that in any way affects you other than immature jealousy.

    Grow up.

    Odd, considering you have many, many normal mode kills. Would they be because after you reach a wall of heroic content it makes sense to clear the place on normal and wait until next reset?

    So I guess you do have to do normal mode more than once, eh?

    What I have proposed is the model of BC, it worked and worked better than the current model (also by sub numbers) That is what I am asking for, what many wanted, casual people just cannot fathom that. What is the root of that? Why do they have those opinions that the numbers just do not back up?

    People raided BC, they loved it...the numbers were huge expecting the expansion after that.

  17. #57
    imo they should design heroic first then scale it down for normals and LFR (if that's not what they're doing already, i have no idea )

    Give raids back to the raiders. Get rid of heroic raids. The model that worked best raid wise was Burning Crusade model. You had no gimmicky heroic versions, they just got progressively difficult. Not just the same boss again with a new ability added.

    Give back raiding to the raiders, there is tons of other stuff for casuals and non-raiders to do. Raiding is a culture of its own, it is just about lost. I would like to see it saved.

    Please read this with an open mind geared to discussion. It really is time raiding went back to those that love it and all the goals/difficulty that should be associated with it and all that it should entail.
    The TBC model was not successful. Encounters were buggy and not patched for a long time, not really difficult. If you were to put fights like H LK or H Rag in TBC raiders then would have cried. There was a lot less skill then in general. While it did have its moments in terms of difficulty, in general WotLK and Cata offered much more challenging content for raiders.

    Also, raiding was never taken away from raiders. People who could barely clear Kara in TBC are not killing H Rag or wearing a Savior title even here at 35% nerf. The hardcore raiding community has only grown from the days of TBC, not shrunk

    And yet, the sub numbers reached their peak at the end of Wrath, not TBC. And Wrath is considered one of the most "casual-friendly" expansions to date. What do the numbers say about that one then?

    No, it's not. Get a dictionary. This is an opinion on the direction of the game a single player would like it to take.
