    It's optional. Why so much hatred?? If you don't like the idea you don't have to participate in it. I say bring it on...and maybe pugs will start happening again... LF healer

    no such thing as optional in WoW when optional things help you progress faster.

    Dailies are optional, raiding is optional, tradeskilling is optional.. what ISNT optional by your logic?
    Free-To-Play is the future.

    Funny, I suggested that idea about 1 month ago on the EU forum: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7426874735.

    Now I wonder if they already had this planned, or used the idea...

    I'm not against Flex Raid because I don't want players to experience the content. I am against it because a) it is yet another tier of difficulty that once introduced will never go away (a la CRZ); and b) used as a second excuse by Blizzard to keep Normals way above their original level of difficulty prior to Mists of Pandaria.

    ugh, more ilvls to work with. I'm betting that LFR gear upgraded will surpass this gear BUT at least it will help a Normal raiding guild that isn't able to drop a boss get better gear to help.

    would have been a good feature instead of LFR, but...

    ugh...now we have to do the same raid another additional time every week

    huge waste of resources

    really noice

    Flex raiding will have 534 loot, which is pretty decent for alts that u don't take to main alt raids :P

    Quick browse through relevant threads didn't yield me an answer.

    Does individual loot means LFR-system lockout too?

    I mean getting loot locked to individual bosses but able to do multiple kills of the same boss (no loot for subsequent kills) in the same week?
    As opposed to N/H where once you kill a boss for the week you can't fight it again.

    Could be rather chaotic, if you "have to" drag your 10 guildies that were available on Wednesday (and now loot-locked) so the 5 that weren't can do the bosses on Thursday.

    And answering my own question here.
    From the horse's mouth:

    You will be able to repeat bosses, and that will actually still be somewhat rewarding, you’ll be able to use additional bonus rolls, earn Valor Points, and potentially loot some shinnies from trash...

    There’s something unique about FRs though, I’ll explain it with an example:
    Let's say you join a 12man and kill the first boss, leave the raid, and join a 20man, you might have to repeat the first boss.

    "Might", so how does that work?
    If everyone in the new 20man raid has already killed the first boss just like you did, then that boss will not spawn.
    But even if only 1 of the players in that 20man has not killed the first boss, he will spawn again and everyone else will have to repeat the encounter.
    90% same as LFR with one caveat.
    If everyone in the new 20man raid has already killed the first boss just like you did, then that boss will not spawn. (like normal)
    But even if only 1 of the players in that 20man has not killed the first boss, he will spawn again and everyone else will have to repeat the encounter. (like LFR)

    So... next year, we'll have 5 man raids with "slightly" better than raid finder gear? At least they're moving in the right direction in WoW... however it's a little late.

    I like flexy raid being implemented as a seperate mode, since it is impossible to balance to offer any decent normal mode experience with today standards (effectively eliminating/trivializing normal mode).
    I don't like the inevitability of it being mandatory to progress into normal mode, if you re not in a raiding team with "some" heroic activity, or mandatory to "progress fast enough" if you re in a heroic raiding team.
    I wish it was implemented instead of LFR so we would NEVER see LGR in live realms!
    I LOVE to see the "fluffy one" being back posting these "news"!!!!
