Take for example MoP dailies. These are a want, not a need. Now don't get me wrong, I despise dailies, and I feel that I should do them in order to get the rewards, but at the same time I can plainly see that Blizzard have designed the system so that you don't NEED to do them. To me, it's just blatantly obvious. And yet people make all sorts of claims about how they're absolutely necessary to do and that playing the game is impossible without them.
The same goes for LFR. People claiming that they're forced to do it when what I feel is plain and self-evident fact, is that you don't. It's simply not needed for progression. Sure, it makes it easier, but it's still not NEEDED. And even if it was, I've spent probably all of an hour a week in LFR. I go in, kill a boss, go out. Not the biggest of deals and certainly nothing to make a major issue out of.
