Are MMORPGs Getting too easy?

MMORPGs getting easierNot only MMORPGs but all games in general seem to require a lot less thinking. MMORPGs have added lots of features in order to make them as simple as possible for players, such as quest helpers which tell you how to complete the quest, auto walking features that take you to your desired location or NPC for you, and leveling in general doesn't require much thinking. Not to mention the fact that a lot of MMORPGs are constantly increasing their exp rates, so the amount of time it would've taken you to get to level 50 on a certain MMORPG before, now you could get to that level in half or even less the amount of time.

Plus the addition of cash shops, which allow players to buy their way into making MMORPGs even easier, and features such as Apprentice and Master system that allow higher level players to level up low level players in exchange for rewards. MMORPGs are definitely getting easier. I personally think it is all in an attempt to appeal to a wider range of people. Because MMORPGs used to be a really niche genre, but lately people are starting to get into them more, and therefore all MMORPGs are trying to adjust in order to be more appealing to a lot of the new MMORPG gamers.
