I posted this on the wow official forums, but I was wondering what you guys thought of this idea as well. Feel free to extend on the idea.
So I've been reading the forums a lot lately and I think it's quite apparent that people are upset with the current daily "issue".
I too myself have become completely burnt out on doing dailies. I leveled every faction in Pandaria to exalted aside from August celestials and I have absolutely no desire to ever do another daily at this point.
So when pondering this issue, that's when I had this idea. It's a solution that's so simple it boggles the mind.
Simply switch the dailies to weeklys, increase the reputation gained x7 per quest... everyone wins.
Less pressure on the player base to log in each and everyday to do repetitive content yet still produces the same rewards in the same amount of time over the long term. This allows players to manage their time in the game and how it's spent a bit better. Many people have jobs and or other responsibilities that prevents them from logging in each and everyday and these players naturally feel "left behind" Players that feel left behind or overwelmed aren't going to want to play your game as they feel they will never be at or near the top of the pack but I gurantee most could make time to fit the set of dailies in over the course of a week.
I know from a business standpoint you guys earn revenue by keeping people subscribed, but I would venture to say people would stay subscribed more without the pressure and burnout of dailies if they felt they could earn the same rewards over the span of a week instead.
This reason also fits better within the quest structures you guys have created for the lore of the game. You expect me to believe I just swiped out 200 of the mantid forces and they are back again the next day to do the same thing? Psh.
This would also reduce server load and reduce bandwidth, which is apparently an issue as well as you guys have created CRZ to alleviate dead server time. Less players bombarding the servers each and everyday at peak times is a benefit for you guy's I'm sure of it.
I believe most players would still handle this structrure as "dailies" as they would do one faction per day. They would still be doing dailies just with much less effort exerted. There is PLENTY of content in this game from leveling alts, to chasing achivements to chasing transmog gear etc... there's no reason you have given players this daily pressure to "keep up with the jones's". You guys know that people have addictive personalities and will chase dailies each day for minor upgrades. You can still achieve the same result you want (keeping subscribers) by allowing people to manage their time better over the course of a week instead of throwing 40 quests at them per day. You will have a happier playerbase, and will maintain more subscribers this way long term. No one that has 4 hours a day to play this game when they get home (and thats giving too much in most cases) do they want to spend this doing dailies on one character for minor upgrades.
I know now that I've stopped my "daily grind" and I've started chasing other goals in the game it's become 100x more enjoyable than when I was chasing golden lotus / shado pan exalted on a daily basis and I plan on staying a subscriber for a long time.
Weeklys, make the switch.
