But back on topic. It'd be interesting to see the hard data on LFR attendance, and more importantly, how many players have LFR kills and zero attempts on normal mode. I'll bet that it'd be quite high.

Maybe off topic, but
Can't really understand the fuss about MoP normals though.
It was not harder than Cata normals(DS is exception, well)
The problem is that gear is just fucking tedious to get, but the difficulty in optimal gear level isn't really hard..
Oh and Tortos should be just deleted. Worst RNG fight I ever seen.
Turtle hits healer a lot of times? wipe
Turtle hits people who has rock falling on top? wipe
Can you avoid the turtles(especially healer)? not really

Still don't understant what was the reason to increase freaking iLvl on items for so much. And, while it is increased, lots of new items suck. Our damage dealers are complaining all the time for having a ton of unneeded hit/expertise because of tons of them on a new items. And, by the way, valor items from Shado-Pan sucks as much for having a very crappy stat customisation; my Holy Priest can't take any of that items after reaching Honored because there is a fucking crit on every item.
To those people who still can't pass through first part of t15 normal: Guys, cheer up. When you reach Durumu, you'll understand that all bosses before it were a little pink wearing pussies, lol.
Not to mention we've played WoW for years and years, and have all done normals and even heroics over the years. Dedicating a night to wiping constantly just isn't as fun as it once was. WoW is not new and exciting.. you can't keep our attention that long like the old days.
I like LFR because I can log in on my own terms, play on my own terms. Until Blizzard makes PUGing more rewarding, I will be done with Normal modes for good. I usually quit after a few weeks each patch, so I never get the opportunity to raid normals/heroics like in the past.
tl;dr I just don't care like I used to. Make Normal mode a LFR option and Ill give it a shot when my gear permits.
Free-To-Play is the future.
I blame DS for the loss of a few.
Simply because it by itself adds to the amount of time one has to invest in the game is you want to be a dedicated raider.
You might just have 2-3 raidnights a week but on top of that you end up with 1-2 nights where you play wait till the que pops and then go mindlessly through LFR.
Why do LFR well if you are a semi dedicated raider you still want to upgrade your gear in order to be best prepared for the challenges in normal/heroic raiding.
Add to that that you are also expected to grind reputation, do daylies, cap valor and have enough gold/food/flasks every evening where gold is the least of the problems since blizzard has gone ben bernanke mode and throws out gold left and right especially 28.50g .
Normal raiding would be much more enjoyable if one had to do less things ingame in order to be best prepared for it.
Somehow it would just be better if they threw out those reputation barriers, the removed the coins and made it easier to cap valor, doing 7 dungeons one afternoon in cata was significantly more enjoyable than the current system and gave one more freedom.
With LFR well you have the problem of add a lockout, but that would lead to people just going for LFR because it is easier to complete and gives more chances to get loot than doing normal mode. Or throw out LFR and say raids are player organised things end of story, which is something I think is better given that this is an mmo. Bring back the wrath system it did include more in normal mode raiding even if it was only beer league 10 man normals mode as someone called it.
