    I think he meant the peoples own guilds. LFR gives an additional source, and since loot drops are limited, even serious raiding is speed up.
    Without LFR you'd have to do additional runs to gear up alts, for them to become valuable alternatives to your core runs, in case someone cannot raid.
    There's always a 10 - 20% possibility of people aren't available... 1 - 2 for 10 man... 2 - 4 for 25 man.
    LFR helps keeping the flow going even for the more serious raids.

    They're letting the MAJORITY of the players in this game see the content they can't because they don't want to raid regularly.
    Considering if these people weren't able to do much in game, thus wouldn't be paying subs, thus less money would be going to WoW I assume this would, overall make WoW better somehow?... wait...

    What kind of reply do you expect with answers like that, exactly?

I hate this counter argument " Casuals will leave QQ "
    Because casuals represent the biggest money in purely financial terms, whether you like it or not. Hardcore raiders were always a minority even in BC and they wouldn't be able to pull our the financial leverage that Blizzard needs to run, not to mention develop new things.

    Not like the viewer count of all wow-related streams together amount to any number remotly relative compared to the number of casuals out there.

    Exept there were ... what? 14 months between the two incidents? And you see there a connection? The removal of the lfg-channel was at the end of BC I think, and the LFG-tool was mid-Wrath. Perhaps it was more like "Lets get rid of the lfg-channel and replace it with some server-internal-lfg-tool to form groups" (this tool never really worked for me)

    What issues? Please clarify that. If on my server (which is a small server) I see more people while leveling (it is a MMO after all, it is supposed to be played with other human beeings, not alone. You don't like that? I suggest you back to a single-player game.

    I'd rather like more difficulty levels, not just two (why are they even calld "normal" and "heroic" instead of "easy" and "hard"? Must be some psychological effect because some players might feel bad because they only beat the game on easy mode?)

    I would very much like a more diverse and really useful set of crafting professions. Currenty I feel that it is not really great. Much room for improvements there.

    Heck, even the hardcore raiders are pretty well satisfied nowadays, they accepted the game for what it is.

    Each to his own. I find him to be an irritating prick when he gets like that. Kinda like the kid in the shop throwing a tantrum and demanding all the attention. Meh.

    Crafting gear from raids costing more and increasing their usefulness.

    No more heroic modes! Every boss is hard as it is presented with.

    More single boss raids.



    Taking away LFR and LFG will really bring the community back I think. Shit I know it will when things become hard again they become cool again. It took you 2 weeks to get that epic? Nice! it now means something.
    Why in the hell would you want to return to those days? Attuning every new raid member, spamming trade for a HC dungeon group, being forced back into trade when you wiped and someone left. Most of us have grown up, and don't have the time for that shit. The changes they made to those were QoL changes and they only helped to improve the game.

    The only thing I'd remove from the current crafting is the starter 476 epics, those are too easy to craft (though they're garbage anyways). The epic patterns after that drop from raids and required materials from raids, so that's perfectly fine. I'm okay with the power of those crafted pieces as well. Single boss raids would be cool, but I don't see how that would benefit the game much...people would just complain that it was "too short" and a "waste of resources". Because the playerbase is a bunch of whiny shits.

    As for heroic raiding, I don't see what's wrong with that either. With no shared lockouts you choose how to progress, and you aren't forced to do both weekly as a HC raider. Heroic raiding is like the normal raiding of the past, with normals allowing casual guild to progress and see content and LFR allowing for new players or ones who simply don't have the time to also see content. That is a wonderful thing. The game should be accessible to all players, not just those with the time and dedication. Those with time and dedication are rewarded with better gear, achievements and (hopefully more to come in MoP) mounts and other vanity items.

    No, your proposed changes would push more people AWAY from the game. It wouldn't bring anyone back.

    I don't know if the topic is worth multiple people receiving infractions.
    Why can't you guys discuss without resorting to clear personal insult?

    The game was better when the things it did to keep you hooked were actually fun, not merely necessary and time-consuming.

    So what exactly changed for HC raiders with the addition of LFG/LFR etc and your other points you mentioned?

    Ofc we could go back to 4 hard bosses per expansion.

    Wait, wait, how can something that keeps you hooked not be fun? You play a game, for fun, why would you play it else?
