    Most people do not raid. Even at it's highest participation, which is ICC and DS, the participation was, comparative to the numbers of players, REALLY low, and those periods, even, were comparably enormously high.

    Most people, to me, seem like they don't want to do what it takes to raid, or see it as unnecessary to get enjoyment out of a game. Can you really blame them?

    What's the bizarre thing is, is Blizzard seemingly is still focusing on that few percent that do.

    When the loot you are after wont drop week after week after week after week after week i can see why most of the population don't raid. Beating your head against that particular wall is unbelievably frustrating. RNG killed raiding imho...
    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    Some people say that DS had such a great completion rate if u compare it with t11 and t14 but its not truth - the 30 % nerfed DS probaly yes - but not the orginal unnerfed Ds after release -_-

    it isnt that people dont want to raid, it's that the attendance boss is too stronk.

    hard to raid when 20/25 or 7/10 people log on, cause pugging isnt a desirable option in normal/heroic if you want to make quick progress.

    also, gating terrace wasnt a great idea imo. you could do bastion/blackwing descent/throne in any order you pleased. terrace drops the same ilvl loot as HOF (and better gear for many classes, sha weapons, tier, etc), so idk why they put a gate on it. protectors on elite normal is almost free epics.

    Some ppl just don't get to raid, because, as above, 7/10 ppl come online and the PuGs in the group fail (with an arrogant additude) and RL problems..

    Well, you seem to be contradicting yourself. People do not want to raid so they do not log on. Furthermore, you are not getting any replacements for them, because people do not want to raid.

    Just be honest all of you. LFR killed raiding and we all know it.

    As it was commented earlier, the WoW player-base is currently made of a majority population of "NOW. I WANT IT NOW!" Too many of the features since Wrath have lead to the decline of the actual social grouping in WoW.

    this is actually a good point, a lot of people are content with LFR only, doing normal/heroic for higher ilvl versions of the same items kinda kills some of the appeal from regular raiding. if normal/heroic was the only way to get raid gear, I think there would be more people trying to raid.

    also LFR kinda makes pugging normals less interesting.

    I'm going to close this. This extension of the thread (#342 and after) is a necro from seven weeks ago. The data in the original post is no longer relevant and due to the length of the thread most people aren't going to read through the whole thing.
