"Fast" Generation

Been enjoying the game like it should. Many low level alt's that give me plenty to do, quest here and there with the ocasional random dungeons. Even my cousin made me grab an old account and set it up for him to play (ofc, he made his 3rd hunter), and i've been leveling a druid along with him, whenever he comes visit me.
So mostly i've been tweaking my warrior and pala, and leveling all the remaining classes with heirlooms, since at Portugal we can't benefict from the RAF system.

But... something just doesn't feel's right.
Sometimes i get perfect groups of people that know what to do and how it must be done.
But most of the times it's scrubs, wanting to make it fast. The word is indeed "fast".

"Faster"
"Come on, pull faster"
"Dude please do this faster"
Upon entering a random HC or low level dungeon: "Let's make it fast"
"Faster tank"

Well, the irony in all this is that, most of the times, those telling to go faster end up fucking it.
The story i have present in my memory is about a AN HC random run, where this rogue decked with a 5800+ GS just kept saying "faster" all the time.
He wanted it so fast that he even went to do the 2nd boss bug, where he vanished and reseted the fight, but the other ppl were so slow that got owned by the respawn and....wipe.
Second try, he does the same, sprinting to Anub's room and leaving us running our way down, while i managed to do it with another guy, 2 were killed and had to corpse run, now without the rogue to do the trick again.
It's important to say that i told him not to do it, cause it was an easy badge and was better not to confuse ppl, to what he told me fuck off and join another heroic to triumph farming.
It's also important to say that, after he talked to me like that, i made everything possible to fuck him and his fast run, so after 30 minutes i finally made him to say the magic words: "thx for everything u motherfucker no-lifer" and he left.

For every single instance on random HC mode it's been almost 100% like this.
People join for the 2 Emblem's of Frost that are given at the end of the run and nothing else, so if it was possbile to skip the entire instance they would want to.

What's most annoying is that most people don't say anything about skiping the badge, or being told what to do by scrubs decked in their ICC gear that monkeys could achieve. In fact, i believe most of them don't even read the chat or have it enabled.
WoW is easy. Even leveling up with all the help now available is damn easy. Everything is shown as easy, yet appealing to new players and even older ones seeking to level alt's.
But in the end we get this mixture of hardcore, semi-hardcore, casuals that doesn't go along well with random dungeons, unbalanced pvp and everything available via emblems.

People are constantly angry at eachother because they know that, in the end, the difference between a devoted (im not even saying a 24/7 raider) player and a casual one is getting slimmer each day.

All i know is that i miss the classic wow. The one we enjoyed so much and that everyday we remember as "those were the days".

To be continued...
