As I've said in another thread:
People who play "casually" (or so they say) don't realize that making things less time consuming, less difficult or even less accessible doesn't benefit them in any way.
Check out this video if you want what is in my opinion, an accurate analysis of why easier/less time consuming isn't better for MMOs. This video has been around for a while, and even had its own topic, so most of you have probably already seen it, but still.
Although the maker of the video right now feels that MoP has been one of the best expansions ever put out, he brings up some valid points about the deeper problems with the game today.
Oh also, currently, and for the foreseeable future I'm not raiding, participating in organized PVP or anything of the sort, just leveling some characters. I would be the one not seeing content or in epics if it suddenly turned into Vanilla / EQ or something. Being as objective as I can here
