A friend of mine was showing me the post Cata world after Christmas and the game is literally a joke now, it's no wonder people hit level cap without really learning their class. They are basically relying on the random dungeon tool to teach people the game which would be fine if the playerbase was patient or willing in the slightest.
Sorry, but I will have to disagree with you on this one. Read the first posters comments. Iím not sure how much your friend plays the game but the problems all started when Blizz introduced add-ons. It made the lower end starter areas barren and low populated for anyone going out and questing. you were not able to find anyone to help out with the harder quest that required pairing up.
Iíve been playing this game for years and just recently quit, Boredom and grinding out for new gear killed it for me. Now Iím playing the New Star Wars beta. Fun game.
Blizzard made it easier to quest and level faster because people were getting sick and tired of grinding out new toons. As for making it easier. Well I guess you havenít played the newer content or raided it. Because itís far from easy on Hard Modes.
And BTW, they made a lot of the quest easier because of all the complaints from the casual gamers who wanted to experience the game and were not able to. Good or bad, maybe but that what happened.
