Something happened last night. Millions of players made a last ditch effort to get the ahead of the curve achievement for killing normal Garrosh and to get the mount. I am certain many did get it, either they were in a guild group and got it finally after a year, or they had an opportunity to get in with a friend, or they used Open Raid or the in game group finder to find a pick up group, or they paid upwards of 50,000 gold or more to get it. Many did get it, but many more did not. And that is not right. There are people that have been working on Siege for almost a year that have been there every week, slowly downing the bosses first in LFR, then Flex and then Normal. They are the players worthy of having the title and achievement. I am not saying that those that got it sooner deserve it less, or that you should get it because you logged in on the 3rd Monday of a certain month. I am saying that many did put in the work, many did try their best week after week, and in the end they did not get it. Could they have farmed the AH for months and just paid a group to carry them? Certainly, but does that make the mount more special to those that have had it for months? It is a collection of pixels that many wont even use after a time.
I was fortunate, I had a friend invite me to a group several weeks in a row and I got mine a month ago, but I do not feel right wearing the title or using the mount, so later today, to show support of those that worked so hard but did not finally get it, I will be taking off the title, and taking the mount off my action bar, never to be used again. I do not think it is right or fair to all those that worked so hard.
If you want to keep pushing people to move forward, sometimes you have to give them a reason to want to go back.
