I don't see that the ability to increase or decrease the difficulty by individual players would have to hinder that.
Exactly what I'm saying.

Have in mind that a large number of players are 15 year old CoD fans.

I'm saying I prefer games to be as close to the artistic vision of the developers as possible.
Yes, you said that, and then you said it's ok if Blizzard made a game specifically designed to appeal to mainstream (that is as far away from their own liking / "artistic vision"), which doesn't make sense to me.
I really don't think you understand, and it has nothing implicitly to do with challenge.

It has to do with "purity" for lack of a better word.
Tragos likes when a game lets you customize the difficulty on your own. Changing the difficulty level has nothing to do with challenge?

I feel like I could… like I could… TAKE ON THE WORLD!!!
