    I'm confused.

    I thought LFR was casual gameplay and LFR offers all the gear.

    What more do casuals want? Gear on login?

    If anything, I believe the opposite is true. Gear is too easy to get, hence people get their gear and have no reason to play anymore. The easier to get gear for casuals, the less they will play. There were lot to do when character progression and gear ladder were slower and longer. Now it is too fast. Casuals experience content fast, get their gear fast and unsub til the next content patch.

    Seems to work for raiders doesn't it? Or do raiders quit once they find nothing more rewarding for them to do?

    LFR is not casual friendly in the slightest. An hour in que to spend 2-3 hours completing a WING for little to no reward and being subjected to whatever douch baggery you find in the lfr group is not casual friendly. Hell flex is probably more casual friendly if you know the right people. I play Dota as a casual game. I hop on and am within the match in a couple minutes with some friends and usually the matches are just over 30 minutes long then I go and come back later or play another one if I so choose. I could also make the case that hardcores who clear the raid in the first month or two unsub till next content patch..

    It strikes me that pvp could be a good source for casual game play but it suffers from a number of problems primarily the developers lack of interest in developing it. They've made some good changes to it this expansion though.

    If I knew I was trying to do nothing in return for rewards I don't deserve I would be ashamed....and I wouldn't be happy. fact is if you want advancement then do what it takes...if you can't or don't want to that is your fault and accept it

    It is due to casuals that the q is so long. no one wants to group because they lack the ability to play at a decent level and don't care to get better

    This implies that some moral or ethical code is in effect and is shared universally among people playing the game. If people are not willing or able to do what it takes then they leave and nobody is at "fault" but the developers may ultimately wish to rethink what's required of players.

It's a dead end because well people do exactly that. Ultimately it's not up to them wether or not they change, it's up to the demands of the business and the market and all that crap. It's up to them HOW the game changes and how they respond to the market. I mean if they want to keep theirs jobs and making money and all that.

    Casuals are not everyone. They are a fairly large majority of the player base however they are not everyone so the question you threw back in my face isn't equivalent or relevant.
    Nice try with dodging my last question. I guess you do think Blizzard can make content that everyone will like and when I say everyone I mean everyone. Surely one person will not like it casual or not. I have friends that used to play wow but now they have children. They view wow as a giant waste of life and time now. They are much happier just going to work and coming home to spend time with their family before they go to sleep to do the same thing the next day. So I guess no matter what blizzard does they won't get those subs back.

    That's more or less exactly what casuals do although I'm positive both groups leave feedback on the way out. I'd be shocked if they didn't.

    PvP is struggling with over-work. They've tried too much, too quickly, none of the systems got time to bed in and, underneath it all, the core gameplay is absolutely knackered. It's not inviting for new players because of gear discrepancies, one-shot macros and never-ending chains of control.

    When you toss the highest number of keybinds in the game's history on top of all that, it's actually very casual unfriendly IMHO.

    It's not a dodge, it's just not a relevant question. Casuals are not everyone. Appealing to everyone is obviously absurd and not feasible however nobody is asking them to appeal to everyone. Casuals are also at the same not nobody, they represent a significant portion of the player base and it's income.

    no you disrespect everything they do and say its not enough. you don't give them any appreciation at all. I guarantee raiders appreciate blizzard more than you do ten fold even if they do quit. We acknowledge success and their effort. You bitch and complain and say they are worthless. If I was blizzard Id give you a big fuck you

    In vanilla, TBC, or WotLK I never ran out of content. It took months to progress and before I could finish one tier, next one came out with more bosses and more gear.

    In MOP, I did LFR and seen all content within two weeks of doing LFR, then I unsubbed. I was thinking of coming back next content patch, never did.

    I used to love hardcore raiding and I still have time to devote to it, but I won't do it because LFR gives me all content and gear and I just unsub once done.

    Everything in this game is fucking casual.

    The hardcore is long gone from this game, go play something else if this game doesnt tickle your balls instead of trying to change it to whatever you want because you cant dedicate ANY decent amount of time to the game and want everything on a silver platter.

    Potentially it could be though. It's like the dota example I used. Log in with a couple of friends, relatively quick que times, relatively quick matches, no prolonged attachements you don't have to sit at your pc for 3 hours you can come and go within the match times. it's more bit sized. That's the hardest part about making casual content and pvp already has that.

    The rest of the stuff needed to fix pvp for casual is alot of work but I do think some of the changes made in 5.3 are for the better. Key binds is definitely an issue. Dota has depth of play but it's different it's not 30+ keybinds. Most heros have like 2. It's hard to explain. Dota is on the surface very simple but it has layers.

    I'm sorry if I've come across that way. I'm positive raiders (many) have said the same thing and in this case you can't catagorically state they haven't anyway. You can't make that guarantee since you don't A. Know how I "appreciate" blizzard (as if I had to or as if they cared if I did or not) or B. How raiders appreciate Blizzard on the whole. I"m sorry your argument is even on the face of it absurd.

    Why? Trying to get them to change the game to my preferences would be highly beneficial for me, no reason for me to stop, very much reasons for me to keep on whining until they give what it is I'd enjoy most out of the game. Why does it bother you when other people get to do stuff they enjoy?

    Would you go back to playing vanilla tbc and wotlk? The never ending content had alot of negatives that went along with it as well not something that I think most people would readily accept. Ironically by their own statements they tried for a slightly more vanilla feel this expansion with regards to precisely that..

    I'm not really sure how much more casual friendly they can get.

    The only thing I can think of is a system like oQueue or Open Raid built into the game. That way people could find groups when needed.

    I suspect they will make LFR only require 1 tank, or use the mechanics brought in with Flex mode (as in the raid adjusting to the number of people in it, or the number or specific roles in it) with modifications for needing less tanks or healers.

    I hope they also think about continuing to add more 5 man dungeons (or 5 man scenarios even) that have multiple objectives. These objectives could range from easy to hard, with better loot dropping from choosing to complete the harder objectives.

    Just my 2 cents =)
