Do not go back.... its not that good blizzard always shows off a lot of stuff but it may take months years before it go live...... and it may all turn to a disappointment. Like if you make your L55 deadknight you will be one of 1000 you never will get into a 10 man team. And if you go back anyway just make sure you keep playing on your mage the mage class still is wanted for many rates :D

Only about 5% of the millions of players actually raid and get to see the 25 man content, they needed that change so that casuals can raid too of else they'll start leaving the game.

5% raid Black Temple - the top instance at the time that statistic was disclosed. Most of the players (>50%) have raided Karazhan. Let's not confuse the numbers.

New class=fluff, all the cool skills will be nerfed down after a few months of board trolls whining that skill XXXX is overpowered. Eventually it will be a bastardized mix of paladin and mage that will be about as popular in raids as an enhancement shaman

10 man raiding content will just mean that much fewer slots available for hybrid or non cookie cutter specced classes (ret pallie, elemental or enhance shammie, etc)

changes to pvp will be great until the hardcore raiding guilds "regear" up and start dropping your flaming corpse to the ground faster than a pigeon hitting a power line. If you can't keep up give up is the common cry.

Still one of the most fun games out there but they have done nothing at all for those of us with real life commitments keeping us from 7 hour raids 3 times a week. For those of us without the time to hardcore raid the game experience will be the same. A few dailys of different annoyance levels, maybe a hour or so of l33tspeak in a battleground, and the rest of the time trying to pug instances that are far to hard for a disorganized pug.

yay.

Actually, Blizzard has said most of the 5-mans in WotLK will take under one hour to complete. I can't imagine the 10-mans will take much longer. So your estimation of seven-hour raids multiple times a week is a bit off.

In fact, Blizzard is doing quite a lot to make WoW much more casual.

And also, there's nothing to be gained from taking such a negative view on everything about the game. Its pluses far outweigh its negatives
