I see now this may have been a troll thread.
It's early, I didn't get much sleep =/
I'm confused how the xp boost over in Korea is giving anyone an advantage. All it does is let people level more quickly, which according to the OP shouldn't take those other players very long. Most people who are serious about leveling an alt can get them 1-90 in a week with all the decreased requirements. If they're really serious it's a weekend. I'm not required to pay the extra money to compete in ANYTHING endgame so I don't really see it as gouging. If anything it's giving many players something they've been asking for a long time, a real money way to expedite the leveling experience. For many leveling is currently the least interesting aspect of the game so they're responding.
That being said, GC is still a massive troll who doesn't give 2 shits about 90% of his customers.

Oh and before someone tries to make an issue, I fully understand Blizzard has nothing to do with the moderation of this site which should be fairly evident because I'm tearing into the mods of this site themselves. The point of these fan sites is to promote community and threads like this do the opposite. It is absolutely shameful and not even remotely the first time it has happened. I have lost count of threads like this where the OP gets off scot free and any mystified posters confused as to why it is open are the only ones who get an infraction. It is bullshit and it needs to stop.
I can only hope the new moderators who are applying now as we speak can balance this out somewhat because this site has definitely skewed towards the endlessly critical side no matter how stupid and invalid much like this "satirical" thread.

This is ludicrous. WoW is more casual than ever, the entire expansion is the most casual yet. What exactly do casuals want? You have 2 - borderline 3 - raid modes designed SOLELY for you, all the nice easy daily quests, simplification of talents and pretty much everything else in the game. Everything is accessible except 1 mode of raid content...what more do you want?He does this all while unabashedly dismissing and neglecting the wants and needs of the casual players who often times find themselves out in the cold despite the fact they pay the same subscription fee as those to whom are consistently and systematically catered.

(From one of your earlier posts, just changed it a bit)
Keep it civil please.

Your reaction is not appropriate there is absolutely no need to start swearing at and insulting people that disagree with you. As you seem to have such a large problem with this site why not find one that can better suit your needs instead of spending your time insulting people here? I dare say you would be happier and this site would be better off without such over the top reactions.
ITT - people can't into satire.
Op hasn't responded since the first post, then sat back and giggled while the rest of you took him seriously.
I wanted to take a moment to apologize to those whom I've upset, whether they understood the intention of the post or not.
This was never meant to be a troll post, as I thought I had created an "over the top enough" premise for people to get it, but rather it was designed to bring a little humor and levity to the forums.
However, I see that not only did I spectacularly fail at my objective, but I managed to generate a tremendous amount of animosity, anger and hatred.
Again, my sincerest apologies to the MMO-Champion posters and mods.
Although the post could have done with a little disclaimer at the end. Read as a satire (or having read your blog, which I've enjoyed tremendously), it's quite fun. But as it is, it skirts uncomfortably close to Poe's law.
See that green flowery circle over there? Stand on it. No, don't run away from it! C'mon!
Gotta be a bad troll, this thread. Right?
Find it a little missing on the reality of the post. But of course, we all have freedom to speak out. And that is also why there's no laws of giggling about these kind of posts. Though, it seems a bit like fishing for reactions. Be it humor, parody or truth.

Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
Roses are red, mana is blue. Suramar Guards, Will always find you!
Three expansions in dust; Cata: 1-2 hrs, MoP: 40-60 min, WoD: 60 min (own experience).
With the amount of rude posts and the over-the-top opening post, this hasn't gone anywhere constructive.
