This is not a game you "beat." In my opinion, the whole game is a grind, you grind for gear, rating, reputation whatever else you want. You grind down bosses, other players, NPCS, whatever it is needed.Taking the grind out of a game that has always been grind/gear centric is just wrong. Again, if you love the "equal gear at all times" feature, play a game with it. You have just as much opportunity as anyone else to play. Blizzard does not limit you and allow other more time.
If anything, they should fix/punish people who cheat and bot, and perhaps make the difference in gear item levels a bit less harsh. Has anyone actually done the math to see if they differences are actually bigger? Or if it jusst seems that way because the numbers are that much bigger?
