People don't understand the concept of gaming I think.
Not everything can be a gind or so hard that it can't be completed without hours of training or study on some site.
I for one, don't read websites to know what I should be doing in a game; not that I don't want to but if I start doing that I won't have the time to play at all.
So I prefer to play and not to read how I should play.
So the time I can spare out of my responsibiities and other irl stuff, I spend online in wow.
if everything is damn challenging and I need hours and hours to progress then I think I would leave the game after a while.
I am playing since tbc and enjoying myself very much. WOW is the only computer-game I ever played. I don't have time to play and I am certainly not a gamer.
I like wow because in my youth I played D&D with some friends. AZeroth and the chars in it resemble D&D, so it caught me.
I am not good in gaming overall and I am not playing any game to be good at it; I play it to have fun, that's all.
I like MoP very much overall. In fact I have never really complained about anything in WOW. But now I see the direction they took is not providing me enjoyment anymore.
It feels more like I am working instead of gaiming. Now, I have quite a demanding job irl and what I don't need is a game which I buy and for which I pay a monthly fee to be boring and be a new job for me.
The end-game part of MoP is really making me think that this game is not for me anymore. Overall I think some things are really dumb, and I mean really dumb.
The reactions from blues on the official forums aren't rational also, they react to try to make a story of it and soften things, that is their job.
There is a reason for so much qq on the forums, official and others.
Is not about fun (that is of course subjective) or choosing about "this evening I want to do this, instead of that", it is about efficiency so -> "how fast will I gear" or "how can I gear as fast as possible" or "how fast can I get that loot over there."
They're not rewarded equally cause they're not equal or comparable activities.
Dailies are just long (not even that long) not difficult and anyway in half an hour/one hour you do enough to get around 80 Valor points that is around the time you need to do a Heroic (exlucing queue times) and you get even more cause I think first heroic is 60 valors? But heroic gives also chance to loot inside the instance itself, so even if the Valor/hour is less (maybe) the loot inside the instance offset it on a design level.
They also never said that the rewards would be equal, they just said that you may get "power increasing" rewards (points in this case) by doing different activities than just dungeons/raid

You GET to do these dailies forever! Its a privalege
people don't seem to realize you only get 1k valor per week... you'll be exalted long before you have enough valor to buy all items anyhow <.<
The point of LFR is for people with no time at all in their hands to still get to experience the content, well guess what, there is no content to experience if ALL it is, I mean really, really all it is, is tank and spank. If there is no other element to the fight, at all, that all the bosses are copy pasted from each other, then what content is there to experience?
they won't make it scenarios because people wan't to see raid content. They don't want raid challenge and don't really have the time to invest in raid challenge but why should they miss out on the rp and story bullshit? Or the gear for that matter? You have you normals and heroic raids. You can lord over everybody with your super epics and nobody will care.
So what if people wipe every now in then in LFR? If they are THAT TERRIBLE, they deserve to wipe, they don't even deserve to see the content, if they are THAT terrible.
As I said before, if they make LFR any easier there isn't even any point in bringing a raid there.
Me seems I prefer to defy human nature and take my time. Or maybe is because I do not give a flying **** about what the people around me do. Not even a tiny little bitty bit.
I'm not doing Golden Lotus cause at the moment can't be hassled to do so regularly, gear is not a problem anyway between craft and the occasional Pug for Sha/Galleon. I'm not "drooling" of rage because some purples are locked behind reputations cause there are alternatives already to get fairly good gear, the day I don't want to do dailies I simply wont' compalint cause charms of good fortune are locked behind the dailies cause you know, I only do things that are "fun" the moment they stop to be fun I, personally, simply won't do them anymore regardless of the "speed limit".
Edit: To be honest I think your similitude is also a bit off with your premise (that "slower than everyone else around you"). Is more like the limit is 100km/h you go 80km/h (that is a normal and fair cruise speed on a highway) see one going 100 so since he's going 100 you have to go 100 too. Oh noes.
Edit2: normal and fair for italian standards.

It actually is Blizzards fault. They know people act like this. They've known it years now. They've reinforced and rewarded this behavior for years. Why they think turn around and say not so much and then not expect people to be pissed is retarded. Frankly I don't see the problem with the older system aside from it being to much fun.

Apart from that as long as we do not have the data gathered by Blizzard metrics on the game we don't really know what's going on so and can't really judge if design is good/bad this is more like idle, but interesting, conversation.
I never said it ruined the experience for me, I said that there is no point in making an encounter that can be soloed because the other 24 people might be afk. If they really want to raid, they should be prepared for potential wipes, comes with the territory. It's not too hard, it's that they don't try hard enough. You can't make the encounter any easier than they currently are while still claiming they are raid encounters.

My point remains. Guys like you screamed it was to easy, they made it harder, it didn't work out, Blizzard responded. Now guys like you are screaming the same shit over again and just like in early cata theyll release a blog detailing why they did what they did and then things will change.
