No Seriously; Fix the Reward System, and Stop Making Excuses for Sloppy Programming

After a rather lengthy session of 'assistance' with a GM in World of Warcraft, it was stated that if I actually wanted something fixed, I'd have to submit a suggestion. Well, I know a bug when I see one, and if I have to submit a suggestion on that subject, it reads like this;

"The work order quests are bugged. Yes, I know there is a forum post on the subject, but I know a bug when I see one. The crops at Sunsong Ranch mature before the part II quest recognizes them as being mature. Contrary to the forum post handwaving, this is clearly a programming bug, because no one would consciously work to frustrate their player base and require them to needlessly duplicate work; when all that is actually needed is to sync up the times of quest proc and crop harvest. So fix it."

It would have been nice if I could have found the blue post that was quoted to me. This is the only 'blue post' I could find on the subject http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/8178377823 the text is different.

This doesn't even begin to cover the problem that started the GM report. The problem with 16 bosses defeated, 32 rolls for gear, and only one coming up as gear I could use and two pieces of duplicate gear I had earned with rolls the previous week; most disappointingly spending hard-fought-for valor points on second rate valor gear to get into Throne of Thunder, only to get 0 gear for 6 rolls.  The problem is, I have submitted suggestions on the issue of being insulted with gold in exchange for days of work getting the Mogu runes.  Runes earned with daily questing should always give gear.  Gear is the lure used to get us to spend all that time in the game to start with.  For the reward rate to be less than 20 percent on those runes makes the time spent a total write-off.  Better to spend time doing anything else, because you will make more gold doing anything else.

I have submitted this suggestion countless times.  Rumor has it they'll fix it so you get gear eventually. How many runes will that take? Tired of the excuses, tired of being jerked around. I'll just keep leveling alts till I get bored and leave, or they take this game seriously enough to fix the problems with it. Anyone want to take bets?
