Has anyone else noticed the general quality in LFR taking a huge dump lately?
The new LFRs are pretty challenging (not really the biggest challenge is getting 24 other people to not screw up) but I don't think they're too bad really. Just gotta get people used to them. They're still new so people who haven't done normal or flex are still just learning them. But, the quality of people in there is pretty horrendous. People's dps is ridiculously low and no one is able to follow simple mechanics that have already been dumbed down for LFR.
But, the biggest surprise to me has been ToT LFR. You'd think that by now everyone and their mother would have run this place at least through LFR and get a basic understanding of how it works. It's been out for a long time. There really aren't any difficult tactics that you need to learn to complete ToT LFR other than don't stand in fire which is pretty much the first rule of raiding. But seriously LFR has gotten really really bad the past couple of weeks. It's like all the 50k dps LFR heros moved onto SoO and now LFR is populated by the 20k mouth breathers.
Also tanks apparently became the dumb dumb spec to roll. I think most tanks out there think that taunt is their main tank CD to spam since most tanks I find spam taunt even if it means that they're going to take an extra tick of something and since they're bad and under geared they're going to die they still spam taunt over and over and over and over again. Even with all the threat changes lately and the dps increases to every class LFR tanks still seem to do 20-30k dps even with lots of vengeance and they can't hold threat against me auto attacking the mob. Yet they want to tank the mob so they spam taunt. The average LFR tank seems to go stand in front of a boss and not move for the rest of the fight. They'll stand in fire. They'll not dodge avoidable mechanics. They will stand there and do only God knows what except for properly tank.
I just want to know what happened? Is it because of the timeless isle loot that all the really bad players who couldn't get gear for anything now seem to think they're geared and awesome so they want to do LFR? I just don't understand. These old LFRs should be super easy now yet because the quality of a lot of people running them now they're harder than ever.
