    Blizzard laid off about 600 employees a few months ago.
    I wonder if one or more of them might have been very upset at having lost their job(s) and hit back.
    After all, who is better placed to hack...

    On the idea of awarding achievements for clearing content without using any available nerfs, I forsee a problem.

    While I may agree that WoW has become somewhat stale, Blizzard wouldn't dare risk 10.2 million paying subscribers to risk any sort of failure.

    I agree with your basic assumption, but the truth is, we have no idea.

    With regard to raiders feeling the need to run LFR for set bonuses, would it solve the problem if the set bonuses from LFR gear didn't work with normal or heroic gear?

    I know two players who both have multiple 85s raiding at heroic level with more than one guild, one of whom raids four healers at heroic level.

    That puts those numbers in a whole new light.

    The presence of the BMAH will only have a negative effect on anybody's game experience if they allow it to.
