In addition, lete28099s look at the plyaer base coming into Cataclysm from Wrath. I done28099t know about you, but I have a lot of friends who play wow in order to relieve stress. They come along on heroics and normal raids, they may not do the best but they are decent plyaers trying to relieve the stress of real life. Theye28099re my friends.Now, with the difficulty being as it is, a lot of them are either scaling back or stopping their WoW subscription entirely. Some may come back, but not all of them. Blizzard has literally scared off my friends. Thate28099s my problem with the difficulty. Why can't your friends run normal dungeons? Wrath notwithstanding, heroics are called that for a reason.And heroics aren't even that hard. If they find it stressful to learn an encounter with friends, it's a mentality issue, not a difficulty issue.And if they're really incapable of learning to do these fights when they're current content, then they need to level alts until it's outdated content and the rest of us are better equipped to carry them.But I really doubt they're incapable of it. My guild has keyboard turners aplenty, but through much wiping and learning, we killed Arthas and Algalon and Yogg-Saron with them. I can only think of two people in my uber-casual guild who are actually incapable of playing properly, and if content was actually dumbed down to their level, every fight would be a tank and spank you could do autoattacking in greens. These are the 61 points in a single tree people who find the concept of enchanting too complicated, and don't know whether their hunters need spellpower or agility.If all your friends are really part of that group, they should go play Peggle. I may know people who can't play chess and are unwilling to learn, but that doesn't mean I'm going to demand they get unlimited moves in any direction, and make the opposing pieces edible to better incentivize them.
