Lich King’s wrath lasts three days

Blizzard’s latest World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, has seen its brand new content beaten in just three days.

With over eleven million subscribers, and more expected with the release of the expansion, World of Warcraft has to cater to a large user base.

Unfortunately, it seems the new expansion doesn’t cater for the more … hardcore player.

And when I mean hardcore, I’m really talking about a super-guild of Europeans, who managed to beat all the new dungeons and bosses within three days.

A statement on their website confirmed what a lot of long-time WoW players are starting to complain about.

“We are proud to declare that all WOTLK PVE raid content has now been cleared. This is both a moment of triumph and a cause for concern. The question in all our minds right now is if we could do this, how soon until the rest of the top guilds in the world clear all the raid content that WOTLK has to offer? Did Blizzard miscalculate in the tuning of these encounters? Or is this Blizzard folding under the weight of a large casual player base that demands to be on equal footing with end-game raiders?”

No matter how you look at it, Blizzard know that there’s tens of thousands of ridiculously dedicated players on their servers, and should have accomodated accordingly. So another patch will probably be on the way very soon, along with more new content.
