I know and it is true that the trinity or any kind of design determines how an encounter is build. That being said I see a huge variation in WoW's boss encounters. I think WoW pushed the limits of trinity design based fights and hopefully for them will continue to do so. I have a great respect for Blizzard when it comes to their dungeon design and while I certainly agree on the gear threadmill, the loss of world and repetetive endgame I can honestly not blame it on boring dungeon/raid design. I absolutely got bored of them after doing them for the gazillionth time, that however is an issue of gear progression, endgame design etc. Opinions will differ obviously :)

Therefore the more popular WoW got, the more I came to dislike it, because all I really had the choice of was WoW and a whole bunch of other WoWs. If there had been more variety, it would have been a lot fairer to someone who didn't like it.
And a lot of people don't like it. Probably more than half of the WoW playerbase never raids, which means they're left with everything else. After you level your character, that generally means dailies. Since everyone copied that...since end game has become synonymous with raids, those of us who might want something different have been overlooked for years.
Do I disrespect Blizzard...not really no. Do I hate that the game became so popular that virtually all choice has been beaten out of the genre? You bet I do.
