It's an MMO there should be gear grind however it should be separated by content not by difficulty - For instance there harder the content the more you are rewarded but even with simpler content you should still be given rewards, just more slowly.

If they put something extra in thats great news - It was too easy for a Nightmare worthy raid.

As for the specific bug. What we needed to fix were some critical bugs inside of the the new Nightmare Mode Operation, which would need to be fixed before the Update went live. Upon implementing those fixes the Game Update itself became unstable. That is what we are working through now.

Hope that gives a bit of insight.

Sure but giving a new tear of gear to a NiM mode ops that is old news which shares a lockout with the HM which drops UW gear which is what one would need to even bother with NiM is just stupid and blatant forced elongation of the game implemented in the worst way.

Eric. This is one of the things that should have been changed. Since the "new" content of 2.2 is built around nightmare mode, and the whole release is promoted around it, there is no reason that it should share the same lockout with hard mode.

Well said. I could not agree more. Preventing participation in new content, just because players participated in the OLD content, is just foolish.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Who cares, This post also recieved Developer attention (Read: The post by eric Musco) Which means he paid attention to it and we are hoping he will continue paying attention to it as he had previous. Which means we will say what we say in hopes he will see it. Regardless of how many more posts about seperate lockouts exist. And truthfully it is a valid point and the more posts about it means more possibility it will be read by a developer
