First players who hit lvl 90 are usually not the stupidest ones so ...
Wait like 4 months and then speak again.
And try to recall how Cata LFR was 1-2 months ago.
If you like you can find some of the topics here.
People and their short-term memories...
It is just as easy as DS was, And honestly it is good that it is easy. The last thing I want to do is wipe for 3 hours with a bunch of random people I will never see again.
Ontop of that, most of the people with the gear to run Lfr right now are not bad players.
Something that was meant to be easy, is actually EASY?!?!
Stop the Fucking Presses.
Good, they can keep normal at "above faceroll level" and make heroics challenging.
Sounds like everythings working as intended.
I went in with absolutely no knowledge of the encounters whatsoever. Walked out of it having observed very few things.
1. Stone Guards - the fight is a clusterfuck but I didn't learn anything more than that.
2. Feng? - Get out of the epicenter and drop the fire in the middle of nowhere.
3. Troll Guy - he casts something called Voodoo Doll.
That is literally all I got from those fights. Did kill normal Stone Guards later on this evening with the guild though.
I'm okay with it. As mentioned, I'd prefer not to wipe for a million years because I'm stuck in a raid with 24 randoms who cave the hand-eye coordination of a slug.
If the beta version of LFR had gone live without any changes, we'd just see endless QQ from the masses who only want free loot. If you want a proper raiding experience, you are not going to get it in LFR. I don't see a way to change that.
LFR, like it or not, NEEDS to be easy. It can't work if you expect coordination that isn't there....that may even be impossible due to language barriers.

I'm glad that Feng's mechanics can still result in a wipe at these early gear levels.
I'm sad that healers, two months from now, will be cussed out because you're too much of an drooling 4chan-idiot to learn the fights.
drugs are bad mkay... lfr is just as easy as it was in cata and you can still get in groups that stand in crap or explode on the raid. The intention of lfr, is to be easy and an introduction to raiding. How many times does blizzard have to even say that?
So it's exactly what it's supposed to be... Good to know.
I just queued with my guild and dual-boxed my wife's healer because she was out playing pool tourney. Yes, it was so easy I could dual-box tank and healing.
Also went in without prior knowledge:
1. Stone Guards
Tanks messed some swaps resulting in petrification. No deaths, so no complaints. Down on the 4th try.
No one even moved out of Epicenter, most dropped their fire in the melee pack. Healers coped easily.
Tank and spank. Ranged took care of the spirit world I assume, because I didn't
Not sure why people hate LFR. It gives alot of people the opportunity to see endgame-content and as a hardcore-player you won't be bothered since LFR-gear and normal/hc-gear is seperated.
