A Town Called Hypocrisy
WoW Insider has published an article based on the Blue Post by Draztal. The article is reasonably well written although Draztal seems to wander off topic (no Blogger would ever do that). The Blue post is about the dumbing down of WoW (in particular Raiding), Vanilla raiding required a huge numbers of people to partake, apparently the droprates for 40 people were minuscule, whilst not being strict attunements, gear from one raid would be required for the next raid, leaving a huge bottleneck in the process.
Draztal argues that anybody can become an expert these days by taking the time to study the huge quantity of material available on the Internet. It is quite true, and even I often find myself writing an a post on a subject that I have no knowledge of at the time of writing. My aim is to make other people aware of a new aspect of the game which they did not know about. Let's face it WoW is a homogeneously complexed game, and to honest I know the areas of Azeroth better than the town that I live in.
One aspect of the game that Draztal failed to acknowledge is the role of Addons in WoW. If people really want a hardcore experience from WoW, here is my tip. Go in a new raid, do not visit Tankspot, turn off, Recount, DBM or any of the other alternatives that simplify the Boss Skills and attacks. Then come back and tell me how easy this game is.
