    If LFR would've been release with Vanilla?

    Hey guys, so first off I have no idea if a thread like that has been made (Probably) but anyways. I was talking with some guildies in vent about LFR and some of them have been playing the game since Vanilla just as I did, and we were thinking which Boss or raid would of been the worst in a LFR environment versus the ones we have today?

    Those are the raids that have been released since the game (as I can only put 15 choice in a pool and there is more than 15 raids) I'll let you free mind talk!!!

    Vanilla:
    • MC - Molten Core
    • BWL - Black Wing Lair
    • AQ20 - Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj
    • AQ40 - Temple of Ahn'Qiraj
    • ONY (Classic) - Onyxia Classic
    • NAXX (Classic) - Naxxramas - Classic


    Burning Crusade:
    • KAR - Karazhan
    • MAG - Maghteridon
    • GRU - Gruul's Lair
    • SSC - Serpent Shrine Cavern
    • TK - Tempest Keep aka The Eye
    • BMH - Battle for Mount Hyjal
    • BT - Black Temple
    • SWP - Sunwell Plateau


    Wrath of the Lich King:
    • NAXX v2.0 - Naxxramas Version 2.0
    • OS - Obsidian Sanctum
    • EOE - Eye of Eternity
    • ULD - Ulduar
    • ONY v.2.0 - Onyxia Version 2.0
    • TOC Trial of the Crusader
    • ICC - Icecrown Citadel
    • RS - Ruby Sanctum


    Cataclysm:
    • BWD - Blackwing Descent
    • BOT - Bastion of Twilight
    • TFW - Throne of the Four Winds
    • FL - Firelands


    So that pretty much wrap it up. Note that VoA / BH are not included in there since they were more of a "world boss" type of thing.

    So what do you guys think? IF lfr was introduced back when the game first launched, which raid or which raid bosses from those raids would've been an ''wipe fest'' or ''easy mode'' for 25 people or even 40 people you never met nor played with before?

    Probably 4 HM? Cause the LFR would be 40 man and needs 8 tanks?

    Next? Malygos. People failing at riding them drakes.

    Flame Wreath wiping the raid would be even more funny in LFR.

    Unfortunately I think elevator boss would be know as the mass murderer

    C'thun's eyebeam...but anyway, all those bosses would get nerfed until they feel like just a big helpless healthpool, as is usually the case with LFR bosses.

    Christ anything pre wrath would have been a living hell in LFR. Too many wipe mechanics. Infact even ICC would have been hell, our magic... would betray us. Oh god would it betray us...

    LFR would be a lot harder across the board right now. Like what we call normal would probably have been removed in BC or Wrath and we'd just have Flex-size LFR and Heroic.
    As long as players are happy and enjoy the game, the team doesn't mind extreme peaks and valleys. They just want to ensure you have a great experience and feel like you got your money's worth.
    If you truly believe that, Blizzard, show me you mean it. Because WoD didn't show me.

    you forgot LFR removes all tactics? four horsemen back then is basically the heroic mode of today, so they would do like 1/10th of the raid damage, and 1 tank could probably easily tank 2 horsemen.

    and if no-one was in range of a horsemen, NP it's lfr they would sit there and do nothing at all.
