It's 4.2 PTR. It's not released BEFORE the Firelands, it's released at the same time.
It's not "we nerf it so people can clear it before the firelands" it is "okay, we're done with this tier, the real challenge is Ragnaros now guys !"
The nerfs are nothing more than a 20% version of the ICC buff - only without the buff.
I understand that Blizzard nerfs content over time, but this is complete overkill on nerfs - Not only is this trivializing every encounter, but it's making it a freaking joke. The current content as it stands isn't even difficult. On it's first arrival - Yes it was , but not now.
Im surprised they actually didnt release this in a small patch or hotfix or whatever a few weeks before 4.2 so that guilds could "see/kill content" before Firelands came out.
Massive shitstorm incoming very very quickly. Mainly from people who cannot apply logic.
They are nerfing T11 content for the people who had trouble getting anywhere on either normal or heroic. As hard to understand as it is, there really are guilds who have trouble with the current content.
For the people that did clear the current content, well, this should not even be bothering them since the all new T12 content will occupy them then.
So think twice before going bananas over these changes.
Ps: sorry for any typo's, a woman is behind the wheel of the bus im sitting in.

Hooray I'll see content!
Haha @ all the qqing, come on, who cares if they nerf old content when new content goes live? the ppl that it will affect will be in fireland then.
lol, Why do people act like this is a surprise? They always nerf the old content when the new content comes out. Duh. That gets double usage out of the content. Those with determination and drive blow through the new content while those who fall behind experience a lite version of the old content. You COULD wait the 8-9 months to play the lite/nerfed version IF YOU CHOOSE, but you didn't. You played it when it was new, challenging, and fresh. It is no longer fresh or new, naturally the challenge departs for you as well. It's content you're sick of. And even if you aren't sick of the content, this will make it easier for you to clear it being that most of the driven people will be in the new content. It's win-win. You can't POSSIBLY find a way to complain about it unless you are just dead set on complaining about something.
Retards. I'm sure you guys who're saying OMGWTFNOOBSIHAETBLIZXERD have clear 13/13Heroic and all have your glory drakes. Give some other players a chance to experience some good fights regardless if they're old content or new and get that 13/13 you guys all have.
WTF........... ?? Shame on you blizz...
