If anyone cares to remember in cata and wrath people complained about new dungeons making running the previous tier useless since all the gear was just as good as the raid. People asked for a more tier progression so that the raids stay useful in the long run
They refuse to add the content YOU want at a faster rate. You say that they haven't added anything new which is just a complete lie. They may not have added anything new for you personally, but you aren't the only one that plays (and not everyone agrees with you).
The game has always been meant to take a couple months to be finished, you aren't supposed to sit down, play for a couple days, be done, and unsub. From a business stand point, it's obvious why they wouldn't, from a community stand point, it adds more people doing more things, which means you are interacting more with guildies and others and bring us closer to the Classic/BC atmosphere.
Also, you are getting a reward, the reward is the gear. If you get NO upgrades in 2 months, you are an unlucky person and I hope that Blizzard fixes things so this becomes impossible.
@Syraen, I totally disagree. I hated the HoT dungeons, they were boring and only having three options on top of running them several times a day, is not my idea of fun.
This game is all about gears.
Blizzard finally realized it and made 5 tiers in 1 patch. Overkill?
A 5-player will make 6 tiers !
If you want the same gear for doing an easy task (dungeons) as you get from a harder task (raids) then this isn't the game for you and you should stop bitching all over MMO-Champion about it.
This game was always progressively getting more and more frinedly for casuals and more and more progressive in terms of gates and or grinds. It's what made the game an initial success and over the years a continued success. From a business stand point it's obvious that they won't do it because it requires further investment in a dying game, from a community stand point they'll just keep loosing more and more players who will continue to spread the word about what a shitty experience this game is. It doesn't actually give the classic or bc atmosphere. Dailies are a holllow shell of that. They don't capture the essence. WHen you run dailies for the most part your just runnnig dailies. Youa ren't stopping tospell the roses or be immersed. In fact in my opinion they rob you of all immersion. It's the shadow but not the substance. it's people being proded out of sw/org to finish dailies and then afking in two moons. NOthing has changed in that regard.
Also I am not getting reward at a pace I like. In some cases I'm not getting reward period. I often ask myself whats the point in doing anything in this game anymore? NOTHING REWARDS YOU ENOUGH OR EVEN GUARANTEES YOU A REWARD ANYMORE.

Wow I never thought I'd see an expansion with no new five mans. I really hope this isn't true; 5 mans are the most enjoyable content to me. Trading 5 mans for scenarios is just an awful idea.
Scenarios are an abomination even above LFR.
There is no responsibility, no learning, no skill, no enjoyment in running them.
LFR is a pile of shit and worthless at teaching people to understand and play their class.
The only think worthwhile are the 5 mans which hold people somewhat responsible to playing their class/role.
Where are the raiders of tomorrow's expansion supposed to come from. Certainly not from the brain-dead non-specific character's Blizzard is cramming down our throats.
What can they do to fix this I don't know, I am not sure the community knows and when it comes down to it I don't think Blizz themselves know. The World of Dailycraft was probably not the best of idea's but we have been lumbered with it. The premise of gating seemed a good idea but was implemented in a way that has pissed a lot off.. And with the upcoming patch not having dungeons I can sort of live with it, it is not like I need them but only for VP's as the state of idiocy of players in the current LFR's makes me spam scenarios and dungeons to meet my VP cap.
Storytelling in 5 mans? LMAO 5 mans are "GO GO GO I want to get this over with, I got better things to do" nobody pays attention to the storytelling in 5 mans.

In terms of putting out more content, they are putting it out fairly fast, they are never going to put it out content as fast as we players want it, but that's not something that is their fault, they can't just hire more people to fix the problem (too many cooks spoils)
I'm not sure what dungeons add to the game still. You say you like them, but have only said because you used to be able to get really good gear with minimal effort, which is something they are moving away from. Again, if you don't like putting in the same effort as everyone else to get the rewards they get, time to find a game that allows that.
They could just hire more people. Cooks aren't the only people in a kitchen, they would just need to hire more sous chefs.
Dungeons currently add nothing to the game but that's only because the developers aren't supporting them as a playstyle anymore. If they supported them as aplay style they would add alot to the game but theirs a potential that dailies would be less "compelling" in other words "forced" and then they could stop adding dailies in.
Ultimately the only solution I ever get from this community is to leave. Never an agreement that things need work. Nevber an agreement that the game is the one with the problem. Only the answer if you don't like it then GTFO. We'll this community was telling it's fellow players that in cataclysm and people left in droves. If that's what you want to do in mists then people will and are leaving in droves. Keep it up. It just means come next expansion they'll abandon whatever it is you like to do in favor of something else and then you'll be on this side of the fence being told to move on.
You are a self-entitlted person and while I hope they add in new five mans, I still suggest you quit because you act like a spoiled brat, not because you want 5 mans.
