WoWWatch: Pruning it down.

end-nigh

Hear the music in the air? That is the death knell of the World of Warcraft – or at least that’s what many players have said this week. These players started ordering up last rites for the game after a single developer post that announced that 10-man and 25-man raids would share a raid timer and drop the same loot in Cataclysm. The sorry prognosticators of WoW’s fate argue that the changes will cause the death of 25-man raiding and with it the death of the game itself. I am loathe to admit it, but these players are right…or at least half so.
