Its that LFR almost promotes bad play and destructive gameplay. You can just go afk or get yourself killed (LikeElegonCough) and still get loot. Even if you get kicked, you still got the loot (whether its gold or epics) and you can just continue doing that forever and wont get slowed down more than 30 mins or so compared to others who make effort in lfr. If someone would play like this on normal guilds they would get kicked within 2 bosses or raid-nights.
Not like you could get reported for it. What would you get warning for? Not enough dps? Not gonna happen.
I wouldnt mind if it was for people who dont have guilds or do stuff casually. Or alts to get geared before raids.
But this is flat out exploitable way to get gear with no punishment. But what can I do, its not like LFR will become "almost as hard as normals" ever. Maybe in next xpack (and get quickly bandaided to afk levels)
"In the tone of their complaint you can see a mind already made up. Instead, it’s about affirmation they expected and didn’t receive. It’s not about the game getting universal praise from every writer reviewing it. It’s about getting universal praise for buying it."
i actually enjoy lfr. the Q times arent bad if u have a healer friend Q u in and then leave making it instant for pure dps, its a way for free loot and some valor points plus its faster then heroics unless u get a buncha morons.
Are we really 8 years into this game and people still don't understand the concept of random loot?
There are plenty of threads like this, no need to make another.
b) Does anyone actually tab out / watch TV / read a book while doing LFR? If you do then please stop queuing, some of us actually put in effort in order to get the boss down.

Yes, many people do. If you have a problem with that you should take it up with Blizzard.b) Does anyone actually tab out / watch TV / read a book while doing LFR? If you do then please stop queuing, some of us actually put in effort in order to get the boss down.
Personally I enjoy LFR, due to my bussiness I can at most do 1 raid a week, and only if it starts at 8PM-9PM on a Friday, lucky me I found such a guild, but of course it is still progressing in Normal MSV.
Now with LFR, I'm able to gear up during the weekend at my own pace (I can drop out of the LFR whenever I need to go irl and no one is annoyed), and I see the content.
Granted the loot can sometimes be annoying, my shaman got nearly fully LFR(or VP) geared at a very short time, my alt rogue still needs a lot of LFR items from way before Xmas....but oh well, eventually i'll get those sha touched weapons on him too...
I used to be a semi to hardcore raider back in vanilla/tbc/halfway wotlk(yogg), then I started my company and was able to raid a lot less and mostly just got "boosted", I was really happy with LFR being introduced in cata.
Soon my brother and his wife will be 90, so we can do LFR with us 3, looking forward to that...so I can laugh at him when he falls in the pit below Elegon... >
LFR allows me to see the content and pretend I'm still raiding.
I wished we could report those who is leeching througe the LFR , you want the loot, but dont want to help , today we had four of them standing afk, two healers and two dps, not fair to the other four healers , i really wished we could kick you during the fights , or report you , so you have to give back the loot you got, if you helped out, it it would goes much faster , and then you have been working for the loot =) hopefully blizz will do something about those lazy ppl in the future, maybe send the dps meter ^^
