Op/Ed - Casual vs Hardcore WoW

Posted Thu, Aug 11, 2005 by Boomjack

Pwning j00 since November, 2004.
OGaming has posted an Op/Ed titled, Casual vs. Hardcore - The Battle Rages in WoW. Vin Diesel eats 13 casual WoW players per day, washed down with a keg of Brewnall's best:

"The argument is that World of Warcraft was designed for casual gamers yet the end-game is all hardcore content. Casual gamers argue that past level 60, you cannot progress without spending obscene amounts of time in instances, raids, or farming materials/drops for either the Darkmoon Faire (new addition to the age-old argument) or an epic recipe. Here is where the argument gets a little shady on the casual end – there are plenty of instances that can be 5-manned (thus reducing the strain of having to gather 10-15 people for a raid) in around 2 hours. Even casual gamers can set aside 2 hours out of their day/week to go do an instance."
