Nope. I would complain and never go to that barbershop again. See. Just the way I advised you to do with WoW: Don't like a service, don't use the service. How about that.
Yes, because the world is black and white, the term "customer feed-back" is utter nonsense and nobody on this planet ever solved a problem by talking things over.
If you ran a business and a client would be undecided about buying your product, you'd just look him straight in the eye and tell him "you take it or leave it, and that's the end of it" instead of trying to attract him. Bet that would lead to a tremendous successful business. Agreeing that this is the way Blizzard runs their business is like calling them stupid. Regardless of your opinion, they do listen to customer feed-back and when that feed-back is strong enough, they do take measures.
Communication, its a good thing.
How about that.
Fixing the "problems" the vocal minority here in the forums are QQing over would end up with Blizzard losing a whole lot of subs from the majority and as such - a pile of money. And as a company in the business of making money, they are not going to be stupid and do just that. Face it.
And did you come across a celestial revelation that told you that the current state of the game is what the majority of the players wants? Big words there, tiny man.
Heck, there's entire departments in some companies who's only job is to figure out what the market wants, and that is on a daily basis, because they are clever enough to know that in a business you need to adapt or die. They are called marketing departments, and there are special and highly ranked schools for that.
How can you tell newer players would not like a different system than the current one? They never experienced any other.
Here's how mature ppl solve their problems: they state the issue and they try to work it out. Only 5 years olds just stump their feet to the ground and say "no" regardless of what they are told.
Yes, the content feels very rushed nowadays. The fact that you can run LFR without much thought into it on 15 alts a week (if your brains hold) made LFR loose freshness very fast. The same happened with the troll instances or the HoT instances - ppl ran them to death because of the valor points, but the fact that they could browse through them 5-6 times a day made them very boring very fast.
The fact that you can completely bypass older content also makes you feel like you're playing a patch, not an expansion. Ppl don't go to older content unless they want some achievement. It makes it empty.
Lets face it, the main thing that drives us in the game is still the feeling of upgrading your character, which translates into better gear. You might have other reasons to go somewhere but the places that hold potential upgrades will always be the most exciting.
Yes, the old content is there for those that want to see it. Cross realm raiding of it helps a lot. But ppl need more reasons to go see it, other than for the sake of it.
They said that they removed the need to go to these places so new players and rerollers can get to experience the latest content faster. Imo, its a false solution, and this is why.
I was talking yesterday to a random warrior in Orgrimar. He told me "I'm fully raid finder geared and everything I could get outside actual raiding, but nobody would take me unless I have the achievement for killing DW normal. They ask me to be fully normal raid geared too"
And that is the issue:
If you have friends or a guild, they will not mind taking you in blues to a normal DS run, because they can boost you. If you don't, it wont matter again, because you don't have the achievement or you don't grossly overgear the place. In both cases, bypassing the older content doesnt do anything. I know a lot of "casual" ppl stuck into farming LFR for weeks. They could have needed to go see T11 and T12 instead of crafting themselves some 377 pvp gear to cut their way to victory in LFR and free loot. They could have had some good times for a week or 2 or 3, and they could have learned raid mechanics that would actually train them for harder bosses. Instead, they ran LFR for 10-20 times and still cant make it further.
I'd like to play an expansion again, not just the latest patch. I'd like to see most of the raid quality gear coming from raids, not from little points obtained by mindless 5 man spam. It's not a case of "zomg hardcore whining against casuals", on the contrary: I believe the casuals also have a right to be tried and to actually get their gear in the proper way. They have the right to have fun in progress too. They have the right for that gear to mean something. And they do have the right to still see meaningful content left after they completed the LFR weekly run.
