WoW would be a better game for more people if they didn't bother with heroic raid content. If they spent that effort on something more people would use they would retain more subs.
Nothing wrong with having difficult content, but the numbers are too lopsided on this. It's hard for heroic raiders to hear the truth because they usually consider themselves to be more important. It's never fun to hear that other people matter more than you do.

Should we get rid of gladiator mounts too? Even fewer people attain those. Maybe MMOC should run stats on how many players have acquired all sorts of rarities in game, there's even more dev hours to be streamlined by removing these things.
But it's fading away from my mind
There's another "me" waiting behind
Now that players can hit 90 in 2-3 weeks of leveling then spend a few days doing 5 mans/isle stuff and then go kill Garrosh and effectively see all the content there is to see in the game. What motivation do new players have to try harder? get better at the game? attempt to raid normal or heroic content? Is there even anything telling them they are doing things right or wrong?
The answer is there is none, they maybe give pvp a try, level alts, keep clearing LFR for upgrades, maybe do flex a bit then just unsub and wait for new content once they have had their fill.
Heroic raiding dosn't really interest me, it's alot more effort for gear that's only slightly better, i can pretty much solo any content pre cata, i don't need more gear, so i have no reason to do heroic raiding.
My Game of the year 2016: Enderal <-- Seriously, play this game. It's the best thing 2016 produced.
Most Hyped Games/DLC 2017: Enderal:Forgotten Stories, Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind

Bitching about game quality being disposed of in favor of accessibility does nothing to imply an elitest attitude. Your assumption is pure shit.

As for wishing people a painful death. Yes, there are many people that I think make the world a shitier place to live. I would be very happy if they were removed from this world and even better if it was not a nice exit.
Also, not threatening here. Having fond thoughts about someone getting their due is not illegal. If making that comment about Kotick would get you in trouble, half the gaming internet would be in trouble.
Anyway, I've drug this way too OT. I just think that the more the developers can subvert Koticks wishes the better.
