Players need more incentives to actually do content outside of the main game, and things like this are exactly that. Obviously it would have to be tuned properly but yeah, if they can manage to tune it I don't see why they shouldn't keep it in.
The thing that boggles my mind about the Challenge Mode stuff is the fact that it was self balancing since the dungeons automatically reduce your stats down to a certain ilvl. It's just Blizzard being Blizzard and I would be willing to bet we see the armors show up on the cash shop, since they've said they wanted to start adding mog only gear to that, but with different colors.
Cant help but feel the item squish has something to do with this and the added hassle of balancing the stats to keep it competitive so they just said fuck it.
Removal of items has never been about difficulty, it has always been about timing. Took a break from WoW while something was available? Too bad. Joined WoW after it was removed? Too bad.

At least make the old CM sets obtainable in the new CMs?
1. I don't enjoy the dungeons that came with MoP
2. They aren't that hard as Silver is pretty much guaranteed as long as you don't wipe.
Might just drop 200k-300k to get the mounts on my alts just to have them by the next expansion in case they ever do become account wide.

The only decent set imo is the hunter one which i have the rest can rot on the rack inside the shrine for all i care
It does seem baffling that a feature that automatically nerfs your toon so you dont outgear it is getting removed but like i pointed out this sounds like blizz laziness again cause of the added trouble in redoing the challenge modes to suit the new stats and the stat squish.
Maybe iam wrong on that i usually am
Is this really an issue? Over a 10 year game they have removed like 10 items/mounts/titles that people actually care about. If anything, you should stop complaining and be happy that Blizzard doesn't remove every single title / mount / achievement from content when it isn't current anymore.
Get off your ass and do some CMs. They aren't even hard if you know how to play your class and have some friends, you can get 9/9 gold in 1 weekend with people who haven't done them before, and you can do it in 1 night if you have an experienced group. Like 8/9 titles for server first CMs suck anyways, so who cares. You have 6 months to do it, and Blizzard gave you warning. Seriously, this is ridiculous.
There is a good reason they are removing CMs. If you have done Herald of the Titans pre-Cata and have done it post-Cata, you know why. With all the talents and class changes, old content becomes trivial. It would not be a matter of just keeping CMs in the game and pretending the new stats (which you could find on any of the new gear), trinkets, lack of Hit/Expertise, new gems, new enchants, any 1-90 talent changes, new glyphs, etc wouldn't change anything. They would be a complete joke in WoD. If you didn't play in MoP (which, considering you are posting on MMO-C, chances are you do, even if you say you don't) then tough, too bad you have 1 less armor set to choose from out for transmog of the hundreds that are already available.
Blizzard makes a lot of stupid decisions that you can complain about. To complain about this is simply nitpicky and childish. Man up and go spend the next week (since that is all it takes) doing CMs on all your chars, and then you are done.
i agree its a game not RL, no need to take things out, all mounts and items should still be around in game imo. :/ I have a few titles and items you can't get anymore do they make me feel special or prestigious nope... Sucks for those that just didnt play that early, or life kept them from doing X at the time X was current. the ONLY things they should do that would be rare / special snow flak should be rewards to long time players like veteran of the first war, Outlands survivor, Northrend crusader, Survivor of the cataclysm, and Panderian savior .. for titles. (yes i know vanilla wasnt the first war).
spelling: to damn tired to check.
I have none of the rare stuff that's been taken out of the game, but I like that they do it for things sometimes. Maybe it's because I am 34, but I realize nobody is entitled to everything, and sometimes some things suck...this is life. Just because I paid for a car it doesn't in turn entitle me to be able to drive it 100 miles an hour on every street...even though I paid to have a car that can do it. Just because laws stop me from doing something I technically in way paid to be able to do doesn't make me never want to drive again. The only thing Blizz has done that made me mad in this sense is when they stopped with the pvp ranking system in vanilla. I was literally probably only 8-10 hours from having the second to highest rank on the day they took it away...but it is also my fault for not getting it on time as well. You had a year or so to get the challenge armor. You don't deserve it now that time is up, and you certainly don't deserve it being level 100 and running the challenge modes.
Do you want Blizzard to make stuff unavailable or do you want a new raid tier?
