I must say though LFR fits a large portion of it's demographic perfectly.
Permanently retired MMO player. Freedom is nice.

My issue is that it needs to be redesigned within the game because its clearly breaking the game in various ways. A redesign with better goals and understanding by Blizzard in exactly what LFR is. Because right now i dont think they know what the fukk theyre doing with it.
Ur sir r making far too many assumptions without reading what i actually write.
PS its easy to say ur not an elitist but i think others on this thread would totally disagree judging by your arrogant and condescending approach to posting.

1) People leave the game for many many reasons.
2) The alarming rate was a huge majority of Asian subscirptions WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LFR AND A LOT TO DO WITH THEIR CULTURE.
3) You are making a disconcerting leap between 'people are complaining about LFR' and 'Lots of people are leaving Wow'. Its a fact that only a minor slice of players ever come to MMO champion, by very definition thats 'Hardly anyone' no matter what side of the argument of LFR you stand on.
4) You don't know what the majority is, nor do I. Blizzard does and that number says LFR is working as intended and its going to stay in the game.
Your 'logic' leap that 1.3 million people left the game and people complain on MMO champion is astounding mostly because you feel the need to bash your forehead on these forums over and over again, presenting the same flawed argument adnauseum.
How would you redesign it anyways and remember to think like a designer (ie you can't remove the gear or no one will run it and queue times would be in the days not hours)?

Because franky most people here on these forums, any forums for that matter that whine over lfr, is just doing it because its "what everyone is doing so i must do so too!" without giving any real reason behind their hate.

Look, if you don't enjoy something I applaud your choice to not do it anymore but you really need to make a break away from that which you don't enjoy anymore and that includes arguing with strangers on unofficial forums. Dwelling on that which you no longer enjoy isn't healthy.
I use to belong in a Game workshop guild that would be the same as a wow world first raid guild. We would travel the east coast and win the majority of the tournaments, It was a hobby that I was heavily invested in for over a decade but eventually I burned out on it when the company that I supported with money and time decided to use my wallet as a condom on me and nerfed all my old models and replaced them with new better models that I would be force to buy all over again just to stay competetive in an attempt to make me pay more money. I said, "Thats enough! I'm out!" and I quit cold turkey.
I use to argue tactics on a GW forum and talk about the game but since I went cold turkey I decided I wouldn't waste my time cauterwaling about how I had been wronged in my past life to people who were still trying to enjoy the game. I went off and found something else that I could enjoy and spend my time on and I am a much happier person because of it. You can't be happy by dwelling on something you decided you don't want to do anymore. Go find something you enjoy and discuss it on those forums, follow the light.... follow the light... its okay!
heres your post>>>
Therefore my response was reminding u that the massive drop in subs is a reminder that everything is not fine, there are problems.
Your attempt to change your standpoint is pitiful dude.
However, to address your other points...
" although the game saw declines of approximately 1.3 million subscribers, mainly from the East, but in the West as well"
Where is that word HUGE???
It says 'mainly' but also in the West... such language followed by a clear statement that subs will definitely drop even more demonstrates loud and clear that subs r in decline. No matter how u want to try to hide that fact it wont go away. And dont kid yourself into thinking that EU and US Wow is going along fine... it isnt. There are problems and thats why so many players r leaving.
You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.
lol this guy just has no clue, I love rambling with no sense of realism or knowledge
btw I am a smartass, not an asshole but you continue to generalize and try to demean...see folks this here is a guy who is calling names treating someone like garbage.....and just a reminder just because i am in an "elitest" guild as raid leader and gm I am supposed to be the asshole.
See a problem here anyone else?
This guy alone shows that assholes arent in elitest guilds only, they are filled in lfr too? you cant escape them. Just because you are an asshole in an lfr and not an elitest guild doesn't make you a better asshole. or a lesser asshole...

There's no real stepping off point to go from one to the other. The system is not a fit for the current gaming landscape, and it's inherently doomed to failure. It's a niche activity, done by a niche amount of people, that wants more people to be doing it, but basically is abhorrent of any real logical solution, and unwilling to adapt to the changing landscape, COUPLED with Blizzard making absolutely bizarre design decisions. At least that's what I think. You take LFR away, it's not going to magically increase things. You go a time and imagine if there never was a LFR, it's not magically going to make things better either.
I don't even know what some people, like Seefer, think the solution is. It's not taking things away, it's trying to come up with ways to better train the player base.
U cleary never read my posts fully because ive said MANY times why i still frequent these forums, and funnily enough its the same as the hundreds of others who have quit and still post here. We care about the game.
Your bad and obnoxious attitude towards fellow wowfans is a clear advert for how this community has become toxic and nasty... ru surprised people r leaving when such toxicity has diseased this once friendly community?
