Or it could be that Blizzard has stopped giving a crap. I know, unlikely, but gotta consider all possibilities. And if this one is indeed true, then WoD is gonna suck more than all the crappy stuff taken from Cata and MOP and combined. We'll see. Overall it kinda sucks that they are unable to live up to their own words. Wouldn't surprise me if we don't even get even half the updated models by release, whenever that may be.
Didn't the same team do vanilla, tbc, and most of wrath content before gc took over?

Edit: It was also 1 boss, 1 boss isn't enough for 4 months.

Also, their standards for an employee are pretty damn high. Their requirements for a "Machinima Artist" includes "A minimum of 3 years’ professional experience working in a game engine" which is funny because it is their fanbase that makes most of the WoW Machinima out there anyways. If anything, Blizz should look into their fanbase as a resources pool like how Valve does for TF2 content.

We can sit here in our computer chairs and judge them for not hiring every schmuck who walks in the door with a portfolio or experience, but the truth is that maintaining the high standards is part of the reason they are still tops. I trust after so long that they have a pretty good idea of what level of talent they need. It's part of the reason I find this thread so ridiculous.
There's no law of the universe that videogame content is either slow or bad. For a company making billions with WoW alone, they are given way too much slack.
lol at people unsubbing because content is coming out as fast as the past 2 xpacs .....it will prob come out september so stop your bitching and do something else in game besides raid and qq
i wonder if blizz will release a new mini raid or something before the next expac.. the game has become a little bit tiresome
