It is on the schedule for patch 5.4, I think it's likely that we'll get it in. I think players will know it when they see it.
Waste of time in my opinion, since queue times will probably be really long because nobody cares about them. I'm talking 4 hours minimum.
If people want to experience old raids they just solo them.
1) Can't bring bacvk old memories, can only tarnish them with LFR ffs. Faceroll through old content with LFR is not going to bring back anything.
2) Those people who did not experience old content could run them with friends, etc. They won't experience old content as it was current back in the day, because old content was tough and took determination and time and effort.
3) Rehashes will never bump subs. Period. It's a remake of old content, then it will only take resources from the making of new content. With less new content, subs will decline even faster.
I'd be cool with an LFR of old raids that scales you down to the appropriate level. I'm sure people would be willing enough to participate in that.
Hey guys. What if-
What if -GUYS, LISTEN- What if the planned, unnanounced feature is actually a system that scales you down in stats/iLvl (like in challenge modes) to experience old raids the way they were meant to be experienced?
That'd be great, honestly.

Lich King: Yeah...
Arthas: God, I'm sick of this game.
Now, that doesn't mean he won't get WORSE when exposed to some Old God-y thing in 4.4... but Garrosh has already done many unforgivable things out of a simple lust for power, no outside influence needed.

If you have trouble getting 25 random players to coordinate 1 or 2 simple boss mechanics in LFR, how the hell are you going to deal with 40 random people requiring resist gear managing coordinated attack rotations?
As they keep saying. They are moving forward with the developement. As should you.
So no. wont happen
Not to mention, what would be the rewards? Scalable item drops? How do you deal with tier token pieces then?
Can you imagine Archimonde with 25 random people? Good god...
I doubt many people will be all excited for old raid LFR really, and if that is the "big announcement", i'll be very disappointed indeed.
dance studio would be nice to finally see

A de-leveling feature would make sense since once 6.0 and new level cap hits they are essentially throwing away all the work they put into Challenge Modes and all these Scenarios. Not to mention it usually takes two expansions before you can reliably go back to solo old raids. Also easier to scale back since most class abilities are by level rather than talent now and talent tiers could simply be disabled.
It would allow people to go back and help friends level up without reducing the XP received. So many times a friend or guildie will ask something like, "Anyone have a tank in the 50-55 range?" Well now you can go help if you want and everyone has more fun. Maybe the XP you gain while de-leveled would be converted to gold or other points to spend on fun things.
Awful idea, and it won't happen, because it's not a new feature.
The new feature will be raid scaling - not sure in which way, there's 2 ways :
They can scale bosses up to the max level in a raid.
They can scale the character(s) up or down to the appropriate level of the raid.
