    LFR has to go

    It lessens the incentive to raid proper difficulties. When you can see all the bosses in LFR, why would any casual bother doing normal modes?

    If Blizzards wants to give out welfare epics, they can do so in another way. Perhaps by reimplementing 3.3-esque dungeons.

    Haha, i love that term, 'welfare epics'. As if somehow casuals for some reason don't deserve to have epic quality gear.

    Normal mode offers higher difficulty which in turn, in my opinion, means it offers more fun, which (my own opinion again) is reward enough considering this is a game...

    This post is semi-elitist and is not constructive.

    Edit: By 'this post' i mean your thread.

    Lfr killed what was already the near dead social aspect of wow for most players. What a shame they turned an mmorpg into a single player lobby game with a grouping feature.

    For those that wanna raid normal/heroic, how does it lessen the incentive? So casuals have to raid normal? So Blizz should make more content that "hardcores" don't care for, instead of reducing numbers in a raid and have a third, easier difficulty?

    Nah, LFR stays.

    That happens now, even with the LFR.

    LFR can stay, but it has to become an optional thing for those who either want extra chances at gear or can't raid with a proper guild.

    The current system where Blizz assumes you do it weekly as part of gearing up needs to go.

    LFR was designed for people who cannot spend the time to do normal raids. If you don't like it, don't do them. If you are doing them, then bitching at the players for it, then you are the one that makes it bad and you need to go. Enough said. Remember, it's just a game. If you think you are the greatest than do normals and leave LFR alone.

    By that logic, why are you bothering raiding HM when you saw it all on Normal?

    Also, realize this: without the LFR spreading the costs of raid development on a lot more players, Blizzard can afford developing big raids in the first place.

    Lets see.....

    Can't pug because I have no experience. Can't get experience because they won't take me in a pug. Infinite loop is awesome!

    No. Just no. Stop posting this crap.

    I'm running LFR to get better gear, so that I can join my guild's raid nights. You know, one of the reasons Blizzard created it... also, when some people don't have the time to dedicate a specific night to raiding, but want to experience the content, they can enter LFR, run a quick 3 bosses, and see it. They pay the same subscription fee you do, why do they deserve less?

    So what you're saying is they should remove the feature that most players enjoy so they are forced to go raid your normal raids with the small minority of hardcore players. Get rid of Hardmodes or make normals easier imo like Wrath days.

    Right. Blizzard has to alienate 90% of their subscriber base. I'm sure they'll get right on that!
