Its not our fault that other's lives are so busy that there's barely enough time to reach the same level of a dedicated gamer. Because that's the issue here - people with no time in their hands want to reach the same level as a dedicated player with minimal effort.
That is NOT the issue here. The issue is Arena Net going in and fundamentally altering the very nature of content to the detriment of players who don't have the luxury of a huge zerg to "roflstomp" the content's initial version and thus obtain the rewards with LESS effort. You're defending the wrong camp here; this isn't about casuals wanting to be handed the same prestige as hardcore players. This is about Arena Net over rewarding mindless zergs and then over-buffing that same content AFTER the zerg has moved on. In essence spoon-feeding the sheep and penalizing dedicated and hard working players who have to struggle against the content's intended form and work harder for the rewards that said sheep flaunt like it's nothing because they found an exploit that got fixed. This is no different in my mind than those people shortly after release who found a way to turn tiny bits of karma into massive amounts of gold; and they all got banned, or at least had their ill-gotten loot revoked.
