For some reason Casuals being able to see the same content as them is "an issue".
Who cares? You guys are seeing a more difficult setting then them, and how are they interfering with your game?
Is being special that important?
youll see all the fanbo ys here def blizzard and wow as the holy grail till they die, but the fact is
YES MoP is way worse as Cata - the main difference is all the fanboys strangly dont care for all the faults
activision makes (here you will here the first outcry claiming its blizzard making wow wich they dont anymore
- blizzard would never release such bugged shit like cata or mop in the first place) as long as it looks NICE...
thats all mop does - it looks nice - behind that its ie coming to bugs way worse...
Just..don't listen to these people, guys.
Enjoy the game.
If they actually have an impact on what you think without you even trying Mists, then you should really get your priorities straight.

We. Are. Defending. A. Game. We. Like.
Mists. Is. Better. Than. Other. Expansions. Or. Is. Just. A. Very. Good. Expansion.
You. Have. Your. Opinion.
We. Have. Ours.
By. No. Means. Does. That. Mean. We. Are. Mindless. Fanboys. Just. Because. We. Like. Something. You. Don't.
Stop. Trying. To. Make. Us. Dislike. A. Game. Just. Because. You. Don't. Like. It.
And there is literally NOTHING you could possibly say that changes our mind.
LOL at everyone making up excuses. MoP got lower ratings, get over it. It sold less copies, get over it.
We're using reasoning.
Our reasoning is..
..We like the game.
Sorry that you don't.
Could you drop the attempts to tr0ll and incite issues since apparently your only goal is trashing on a game that, no matter what you say, won't deter us from playing?
It's no longer as much of an individual opinion given a sufficient amount of opinions bundled up; it's a statistic, thus more regarded as a fact.
Don't you think it's quite peculiar how an increasing amount people have begun voicing their opinions on matters they dislike or oppose, growing just about every expansion as they deviate further from the original game, implementing some arguably controversial features, becoming evermore detached both in lore, gameplay and balance?
Are these coincidences, attributed by the fact that the amount of subscribers has dropped substantially and will most probably keep on plummeting, by a varying degree if you will, doing so right around the time such things occur, altering the game as we know it or is the game just getting old and stale, or a mixture of both?
It's up for you to decide, just like if you enjoy the game or not.
OP, your previous post on hating Pandaria got locked, and with this one, we get it, you don't like it.
So quit the game, stop forcing that view on people and try to gather a crowd, people like this expansion way more then cata, yet you can't deal with that yourself.
Sometimes I find it hard to empathize with people who find this game fun. We're all doing the same things in the game, so why do I find WoW bland while others rush to defend its awesomeness? It's such a vast difference in perception of the same content that it can be hard to take the other side's opinions seriously. That's when I need to back off and remind myself that I shouldn't consider it a character flaw when people hold different opinions than I do. I'm glad you're enjoying the game in its current state.
People who give 2 shits what a critic thinks of an mmo are dumb. They log in to the game quest for 2 hours and call it a game. If they DO raid they kill the first boss or wipe on trash and call it a day. that means NOTHING to me. thanks for coming out
Good to know there is an official stance on this issue.
I will stop enjoying this expansion immediately.
"If you look out of the window as a human being, at nature, all of nature is unconditionally and absolutely beautiful wherever it is. Whether it's a jungle. Whether it's a desert. Whether it's the Arctic wastes. Or even your own back garden. The only ugly things you will ever see when you look out of the window are things made by man." - Stephen Fry
*alt-tabs to three other fora about his hobbies: The fansite of a band, a tabletop game and a tradingcard game*Don't you think it's quite peculiar how an increasing amount people have begun voicing their opinions on matters they dislike or oppose, growing just about every expansion as they deviate further from the original game, implementing some arguably controversial features, becoming evermore detached both in lore, gameplay and balance?
No, trust me on this.
That kind of behaviour has nothing to do with WoW, it's how people started to act in General.
On the site of my favourite band a guy actually dared to call those bandmembers lazy because they wouldn't make songs he liked.
So, why mention all of these immensely personal things about Destil? To bring me to my point. This game is 1000% subjective and everyone plays the game differently. Its ok to talk about personal opinions on the game but in the end they will always be only that, opinions.
TL;DR If you like it play it. If you don't like it, don't play it.
You could have added a "I rate MoP as follows..." poll and given us a chance to rate it between 0 and 10. I'd give it a 9 so far.
Its not just "seeing content" issue here. It might go deeper here.
Obviously, top of the top guilds dont care that casuals see stuff too. They farm heroics for gear to give them edge over next heroic race.
But then there are "middle tops" which are quite large base of raiders.
heres example, some numbers might not be accurate but yeah:
Guy 1, Someone with half-blue half-epics that are from LFR and normal, first month of raiding:
Ok guys, I've raided for month now. I've cleared raids in LFR at least 4 times as well*. I'm going to stick gearing up here for sake of gearing. -> 6 months of (potentially) raiding, banging head to brickwall during that time as well, and he has full epic normal mode gear in like 3 months of raiding then farms. Saw all (raid-)content of last patch.
Subbed 6 months.
Benefits: Got gear before guy2, potentially had fun raiding but also worked hard to get there, maybe offspec pieces there and there, plus ???
Guy 2, Someone with half-blue half-epics that are from LFR and normal, first month of raiding:
Ok I've raided for month now. I've cleared raids in LFR at least 4 times now* so I saw all content. I guess I will just unsub and come back. -> Comes back in 5.2 and gets full epic gear ilvl equilevant to guy1 in less than months time after coming back. Saw all (raid-)content of last patch.
Subbed 2-3 months.
Benefits: saved money, "time", effort, gets same ilvl of gear than guy1(but later than guy1 cos next patch), potentially had fun in lfr.
"In the tone of their complaint you can see a mind already made up. Instead, it’s about affirmation they expected and didn’t receive. It’s not about the game getting universal praise from every writer reviewing it. It’s about getting universal praise for buying it."
TIL opinions are facts.
