    I think Blizzard should take closer look on wtf is happening on raiding scene. A lot of those "trolls" and grievers are just people who are upset that demand for boosts in raids for real money was reduced, and who try to hide their RMT activity. Though the more noise is made, the higher chance that their provocation will make someone start calling out names.

    RMT people and people provoked by them should understand that LFR-sabotage is crossing any possible limits, and backfire might be much greater than they expect. They won't be able to hide their RMT-activity forever if they will keep going like this instead of dealing with decline in demand (general decline of game + LFR satisfying needs of some people) and higher competition (a lot of shady sides now where guilds incognito sell their raid boosts).

    P.S.: And those "poor" trolls who would try to do sabotage after reading this thread or simply as result of provocation, they should try to use their own brains and not someone's else. Tbh, the whole original post smells like provocation and hideous form of LFR-bashing same time.
    Or maybe, just maybe, it's folks getting a kick out of watching other people have meltdowns over a wipe (or attempt at one)

    In my experience the majority of griefers are not normal/heroic raiders so each their own experiences. Those who I have reported and kept a tab on do not seem to have had any temp ban placed on their accounts. Blizzard is usually light handed when it comes to such and requires the stack of the penalty volcano and even then the starting temp bans are too short to really deter players. Everyone for the most part has a free be a dick bag for the day card and spread out over millions of players adds up a lot when one person can screw over 4-24 other players and a persons general retainment of a negative experience over a positive one.

In which case I'd just go watch porn or something.
    Coincidentally, the only time I was ever the victim of intentional wipe in LFR was this boss. It happened fairly recently, too.

    I'm pretty sure that's one of the textbook definitions of an asshole.
    Stating an opinion as fact does not make it fact. Opinions are not fact. So don't be stupid and make a fool of yourself by trying to pass off your opinion as fact.

    In other news, the sky is falling and the world will end on Dec 21.

    I mean, come on!?!?! What makes this tier tangible distinct than previous LFR wings? Garrosh loyalists?

    Really? Is that really the argument this whole post stands upon?

    Come on!!!

    Hey, if blizzard doesn't want to give me a choice in who I want to follow, too bad for them. If I end up getting banned then blizz has no one to blame but themselves for the believing that everyone loooooooves the revolution.

    Words to live by.

    Say it with me

    "Leap of Faith Chain" - You will never see anything as annoying as 5 priests dragging the tank away from the boss in a long, long chain.

    Had two guilded tanks equipping the yogg-saron tentacle trinket pulling hi-jinks on Lei Shen LFR last week. Pulling him behind the pillars at low health values and such. They lost the ganking war vs. my healing numbers at 2 stacks of determination though.

    I appreciate the challenge.

    Someone wipes the raid then you kick them and move on. No need to be angry over it.

    DUnno why people find enjoyment in others misery, I guess it is some kind of self soothing done to comfort their own misery.

    Anyway, doubt this will have much effect. I think flex raiding will hurt lfr a lot more.
    Flex still requires organisation, and time commitments.
    Things which put a significant number into LFR.
    Flex will only pull out from there those who only raid LFR if those running the flex raids are willing to offer them that space for a fraction of the raid duration.
    Letting them raid for as little as a single boss.

    That is why LFR exists, because normal requires a commitment from start to finish, unless you are filling a hole.
