    Remote desktop and similar programs take 5minutes to set up.

    Just don't be a moron and you'll not have queue times when you come home :^)

    Example? From what I read, not having RDF to negate the neckbeards from spamming random heroics 12+ hours a day is a good thing, especially considering RDF only existed for a short window in Wotlk.
    The other change I read was buffing Ulduar ilvl and releasing pre-nerf fights which I'm a fan of considering how ToC impacted the raid scene for me back then.

    rdf existed for almost half of wrath

    for the last time...it existed for almost half of wrath because of a content drought before the next expansion...when viewed, properly, from the perspective of the content release cycles in Wrath RDF was implemented for the last 25% (or less).

    Dear Blizz, stop shoving these content creators down our throats already.. Thanks.

    This will be a nice distraction until DF launches.

    Half the xpac is still half the xpac, stop trying to deny it was a major feature that was there for a very long time. ICC was also by far the best part of Wrath and personally I'm glad it lasted as long as it did, if I had my way it would of went on for at least another year before Cata released.

    I was never bored and it gave me plenty of time to level and fully gear all my alts since I could finally level them without wanting to play in traffic because of how terrible Azeroth was.

    Gross. ICC was by no means bad but it could not support 2 years.

    the only reason ICC was seen as such amazing was because of 40 % buff so every baddie could finaly raid.

    if they kept doing those 30 % nerfs / 40 % buffs then raiding woulnd be dead and activity for neckbears nowadays .

    That was a shit xpac, they should skip to MoP instead, while edgy folk bitch about pandas, it had great raids n the zones were amazing, so many people still farming those world bosses, still don't have a single of the mounts..

    Most popular by what metric?
    Subs? That would be the hated Cata actually.
    Loved by players? Only for those watching with the rose tinted goggles of nostalgia. If you actually played at the time you would be familiar with the term 'Wrath babies'.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death
