I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
Normal/heroic raiders are likely to spend much longer clearing the content, so they stick around longer. And they're far more likely to quit if they literally have no challenging PvE content left to do.
also on the cooking note...sure I know how to cook, but I want to make a chocolate mousse cake or whatever it is (I don't cook so laugh all you want). Now I ASSUME chocolate is involved in the recipe but have no clue what else. Now would you like me to come make you a cake or would you prefer someone who took the time to look up ALL the ingredients and prep time and cooking heat do it for you instead?
I mean as a heroic raider I really only needed a handful of truly difficult bosses to keep me entertained. Wrath was a fun expansion to raid in despite having about half of the number of heroic/hardmode bosses Panda does.
So yeah. Bring on the dungeons!
Do you also feel sports teams are elitist because they make people do tryouts and commit to a schedule?
I think what the LFR haters want is for casuals to gather around the Auction House mailbox in their green and as many as two (2) pieces of blue gear, and marvel at them in their *gasp* purple epics. Emotes of /e chants "We're not worthy" are preferred. No casuals should be on a mount either, so as to ensure that they can properly appreciate the special achievement mount the 1337 people are sitting on.
This is my strong suspicion as to what the complainers would prefer. I can't think of any other reason to complain - as a normal and eventually heroic mode raider, I love LFR - I use it to get my set bonuses sooner, fish for upgrades (just ran Galakras in LFR last night trying for the belt, curse my timeless belt) etc. My average item level is 561 equipped, 562 otherwise due to some warforged gear I won't wear because it would break my four piece. And that's not even counting when I get bored later and start playing alts.
More to the point, casuals having epics doesn't take anything away from me. It just doesn't. If it did I would care.
I really hate how people look at LFR in a vacuum. Very few people are going to quit and just say "LFR".
Its the changes that came with LFR to the community, the attitudes of the average player, and the idea that you deserve everything. It also attracts ADD gamers who have no intent on sticking with the game, thus the high turnover rates. LFR was a short-sighted implementation.
The thing that made the game better before was that whining and being shitty got you nowhere. People who wanted to play shut the fuck up and did what they had to do to get what they want. I still dont understand why people who didnt want to achieve those goals bothered playing. Why play an RPG if you dont like them?
Another LFR thread? -sigh- Anybody else remember when Molten Core was dubbed Molten Bore
Who are you to tell him he has to play like that?Youre exactly the kind of player who needs to be pushed back out into the game. With LFR, you and thousands of others just slink back into isolation and queue-based play.
If he is still enjoying his experience (and he obviously is because he's subbed) then what is the problem?
People (incorrectly) complaining that LFR is forced upon them as 'hardcore' raiders, yet they wish to force different play styles on those who are perfectly happy.
I love all the LFR fanboys calling out how LFR is needed for casuals and when they are said we need alternatives they yell out NOOOOOOOO IT WILL KILL LFR
They are just as exclusive as the elitist raiders who refuse to give out purples anything outside LFR.
Just as raiders are minorities the hardcore LFR fanboys also don't represent everyone. They too are minority but blizzard listened to them this time and subs didn't even remotely start to stabilize
