    How about this for an idea - if you don't like or want to do LFR then don't do it!

    I find it odd that these forums really dislike the idea and on the other hand consider LFR not even raiding. It is just an odd pairing. Maybe, to go along with the original offering I spoke about to start this thread, it is adjusted to that third option I mentioned.

    No transferring of toons to or off this server. The atmosphere within game would be more or less policed by the players, makes for a better in game society.

    Wooh, yeah! Let's buy servers people would play on for a month for the novelty until everyone but like 5 masochists quit. This will be profit!

    Server balance problems? Let's just make shit even worse!
    It would be dark inside my head...if not for the fires...

    Opening a new server to achiev these 2 goals would be very lame....
    I'd rather see them open new servers that were drasticlly different (e.g expanisons)
    Just my personal thought though

    I know what you mean. But it's that timer that takes away part of the fun. The devs believe we all like "time attack" dungeon runs. I like to chill and take my time with harder content.

    ot: I really hope connected realms aren't complex. Really looking forward to it since my realm is close to dead.

    So people have to roll new toons there? Or are you imagining an invite-only strategy?

    The first is fine although I don't see a lot of the people you envision as candidates for the realm scrapping their current characters to do this. So in this case you have....hard-core alts I guess. That's difficult to imagine working since many players are naturally devoted to the toons they've spent a long time playing.

    The second is unrealistic and wouldn't work in any case. Eventually some undesirable would go rogue and start inviting all sorts of other undesirables and you're back where you started. On a realm with a lot of people you don't want to play with.

    So you want them to make an entire new kind of server....so that you can put in two changes that only affect instanced content?

    What would be even more awesome, a Burning Crusade server. Same rules apply.

    A gated wow community for people who think they are better than 99.999999% of the player population? What will you call it, Special Snowflake? And how will this community manage itself? While it is strutting round SW or Org being all superior and Uber, who is going to be filling the AH with mats for you? People so uber will not be fishing or herbing or mining for you, making flasks and enchants, unless of course you expect this special snowflake server will have an AH filled by BLizz with cheap things. O maybe just everything you want bought at vendors?
    Sounds more and more like a private server.

    Your self esteem issues aren't my issues. I don't think that and I don't know why you should either.

    A Server with only 1 Player? Genious Idea! ....

    I don't think the OP is solely complaining about LFR. If the option is there, the server reputation/community goes out the window. As much as I love the dungeon finder and other LFG systems in place, I had much more interaction with my server without it. That is a good thing and a bad thing, the Internet is full of douchebags and the lfg system promotes that in a way but it also allows us to get things started faster. Back the OP and other responses that I have read so far, I think it is a good idea - those that say "don't do lfr", I say, don't join the server that the 1% wants in on.


    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't...

    This is kind of an off topic observation, but it's amusing to me that people still blame LFR for WoW's bad community when the most hair-raising bone-chilling crazy batsh*t vicious threads on the forums tend to be the LFR bashing threads. Bahahaha

    Disclaimer: This isn't directed at the OP, just the LFR threads in general over the past two years /popcorn.

    What you are proposing is a server for a selective few who has this unrelenting hatred for LFR and all those who find enjoyment in LFR. Even though the LFR and these people who do LFR has no impact at all to your gameplay. If anything, LFR should be welcome by people like you because there is now little to no justification for Blizzard to apply nerfs to Normal and Heroic Raiding to help people see the end content. So the challenge to complete Normal and Heroic remains constant.

    Yet you and other LFR haters still champion for its removal and are now even proposing segregation from others. I guess some people just need to have to a superior complex, whether it be race, religion, education etc. Now it is how to play a video game.

    I have a question for the OP, would this server qualify as a PVP Realm or a PVE Realm?

    I ask, because a "hardcore" server should absolutely be a PVP server as well, but I'd imagine that the OP would prefer it to be PVE. Seems like the type that talks big but complains a lot when he gets ganked.

    In a sea of bad ideas, this is another one that floats to the top.

    On top of which, this isn't a new idea. We've had the same kind of "suggestion" here before. With the same kinds of comments.
    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.
