Some of you may have heard of someone called TotalBiscuit, and some of you may a know he has, or actually had, a daily show about World of Warcraft called Azeroth Daily. But he stopped doing it, for now, because of the World of Warcraft's latest patch, 4.2.
"With the upcoming content patch, 10 and 25-person Normal mode raid encounters will be receiving a comprehensive set of tuning adjustments to decrease their difficulty.
These changes will allow players, groups, and guilds who have yet to experience the content in Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, and Throne of the Four Winds an opportunity to do so.
With the addition of a new tier of armour and weapons, we want to make the previous tier more accessible and so we are making item level 359 gear purchasable for Justice points in the upcoming content patch."
He as well as many other players of WoW believe this is just another attempt of Blizzard to make the game too easy, if not dumbed-down.
I think it's quite unusual to see someone who has been a veteran player for such a long time to leave this game. And that's why I assume that these changes will dramatically affect the end-game of World of Warcraft, and possibly (or probably) also affect the size of the playerbase.
