Started in TBC, I have raided all up to Black Temple. Never made to Sunwell, did it in Wotlk.
Killed Ilidan and took break until Wotlk. Cleared Wotlk on normal modes and I was happy.
Heroic modes? Never bothered, seen the content already.
Cata and LFR came to the table - golden era of casual play begun. Convenience above all and everything. Best thing that happened to my gameplay in wow. I could raid whenever I wanted and leave whenever I wanted.
Now Im asking myself how could I ever play in guild with schedule raid times, I was actually wasting my time back then, raiding 16 hours a week in tbc. Just to experience and kill last boss.
Now I invest much less time and get the same goal. And still subbed. Its all about TIME, finally I can play the game less and get same goals.
Thanks to Blizzard for LFD/LFR.
