LFR = easy and you could argue they are solo
5 mans = not even really progression at all in this expansion
Scenarios = easier than 5 mans which is hard to imagine
Dailies = completely solo and easy
Farm = solo and easy
So out of that you got the Legendary Progression, which was sort of challenging, ok not really, the only challenge was if you could stand running LFR that many times. The questing was decent, not very long ( or at least not what I call long) but not horrid. Flex is what LFR probably should of been from the get go so for me I have no complaints there.
Add some thing like I mentioned earlier and I think you would have some pretty dang happy players all around ( it as in Vanilla and TBC btw which means they actually got worse instead of better as the went along)
Brawler Guild is also doable as a pvp geared player up to the last boss with group buffs.
Both challenging and fun content that is easily doable as a casual. Hopefully more next addon.
I will give you PvP that did not blow.
What else? I distinctly remember all of WoW being about funneling you into the entry tier raid, and then nerfing that raid as needed. Sure, you needed to make the group yourself versus LFR, but it was the same concept: you downed e-dragons at level cap.
Things like IQD, Timeless Isle, Isle of Thunder, etc. are also around, but they are more present in MoP than they were in WotLK or Cata.
I don't see why raidfinder should give items at all, I thought it was about 'seeing' the content and if so that should be reward enough.
If you wan't character progression, go raid, it has always been like that and it will always be.
Looking for Raid: you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Come - we must be cautious.
Even a doctor have a set schedule he get called in at, so instead of coming with your judgmental bullshit you might realise some people just prioritize things differently from you.
I for instance once had a boss tell me i couldn't get the vacation time i wanted. Because he didn't wanted to get another to work that week, but that would always be the case during the entire season. Told him that he could give it to me, or i would be sick that week. I got my vacation and went skiing in France.
I see no reason on earth to prioritize a job over my spare time. Be it sport, wow, friends, girl or whatever.
I don't get "important phone calls" in the evening.
The daughter.. Well. I guess you can never leave to work either, since you're gone there too. Never work at home. Never do sport in the evening.
I agree that you shouldn't forget your family etc, but your reasoning is poor, and you just turns out like a child that can't accept any other way than his own.
.. or hers. Dunno your gender :P
Everyone has so much to say
They talk talk talk their lives away
But, saying all this the MoP expansion style is the only reason that I can still warrant to sub to a game I've played for nearly ten years. Am I a 'casual'? I hate that generalised description. I play the game as much as I can afford to do and only my lifestyle prevents me from playing more. I am sure that I am not alone.
'Casual' does not equal n00b, lazy or stupid players and I am sick of some people inferring that.
