I don't WANT to do organised raiding anymore, i've been there done that got the t-shirt, much like many players don't WANT to. I have absolutely no intention of doing the same raid over and over again on 4 difficulties with 1-2 more mechanics and a damage buff. I can "show" you i've done it by saying i've killed many of the difficult "current content" bosses in TBC/WOTLK if you like.
If by show you mean quit, then yes I already have done, I cancelled my account last week until WoD as I have very little to do in the game until WoD except level alts
If the number of people who have run out of content that they would like to do is large - and it is large - shouldn't that be a problem and a signal to the devs that they should do something about it, lest these people leave (since they, well, have nothing to do)?
Is your answer - no, that's not a problem, or yes, that's a problem? And if that's not a problem, then why?
That's actually very good question. They said they going to release content faster and WoD is advanced in development (at least more than mop was at that point), yet they consider give us one more pvp season and pre-wod book will be released 6th of may. I hope if they are going to give us some content it will not be just one boss. At least 7 could done the job imo.
People need to chill the F out. Its as if people expected a beta door to open on January 2nd with heavenly music and a bright shining white light. The current content is only 4 months old, if they stuck to the regular release schedule they would still have 2 months before the next tier came out.
About the only problem I have with 5.4 is that the entire process of gearing up can be leap frogged over directly to SoO which removes about 2/3rd of the time I would of been doing stuff in game. While its nice to be able to quickly get a friend back into raiding my personal experience has been cheapened by allowing me to ignore all that other stuff I use to look forward to doing, like working my way through dungeons to LFR to raiding.
Damn, WoD seems to be taking way longer than expected :/. I did quit playing WoW but I was quite excited for WoD, sucks that it'll be taking so long.
Sorry you quit. We will have to find someone else to mine ghost iron, pick herbs, farm cloth.

Your personal opinion on this entire thing is irrelevant when what's being discussed is what's best for the game and the playerbase as a whole.
Blizzard's been claiming expansions will be coming out faster since 2009. They're doing their best but I doubt it's coming out before september.
We had this exact same discussion about pandaria and people were convinced there was no way dragon soul would be The Raid for an entire year.
At this point its seem expansion only get out faster to charge my credit card more often.
They fasten up the expansion releases but the content lull after the last patch seems to stay the same length.
Whats my benefit then?
If it comes out in September, it'll run longer than Dragon Soul, rivaling ICC. I just can't see that happening.
Kinda doubt it'll be a year of no content, I'd like to think WoD will be out by July
If youd research a little, youd realize that blizzard says they want to do a LOT of things, and it gets pushed back or dropped.
Also, if blizzard expected the RELEASE of the game to happen in April / March, they would have had beta info going already and/or wouldnt be starting ANOTHER pvp season, which never lasts just a few months. They also would have the new 6.0 patch on the ptr for people to experience and bugtest.
Are you insinuating that blizzard can handle designing and testing everything in the shadows and will just release it on a whim without player interaction?
That would be the first time ever..since Starcraff 1 and Diablo 1 .
Again, just because blizzard SAYS it wants to do something, doesnt mean it ever happens. In fact, it rare ever does happen. It always morphs into something else and/or a different time. Blizzard cant ever rush things.....EVER.
Sadly, I'm seeing it happening.. I wish Blizzard could just drop WoD 6.0 around March, I just hated MoP I don't know I feel so tired and bored of it...
