as long as change still dropped to pay repairs yes I would.
They say LFR is faceroll/easy/welfare epix.. And yet they complain about how long it takes/how hard it is?? These ppl...
Would you raid Normal if they took away the loot? Silly poll.
The LFR difficulty entertains a lot of people, for many reasons, leave it be.
LFR is the greatest invention in WoW and I would do it without gear, I do it now and I don't need anything from there I go to just to watch the show!!!! Best entertainment in game. All the hijinks and listening to people complain about who is stupider and watching people do stupid stuff, I roll on the floor laughing!!!! You snobs are missing out!!!!!
Clearly your enjoyment and your $15 per month is more important than the other millions out there that also play the game.
I'd do it but it would be a once and done thing which would be the case for most if not all players who would use it. Then it would be a useless feature and Blizzard would end up getting rid of it so this would be a very bad idea and it wouldn't make much sense to do this in the first place.

While at the moment, it is the regular and heroic raiders asking for LFR removal, even when LFR has no impact on their gameplay.
LFR is bad at the moment partly because there are people there to grief others simply because of their hatred of it. They just cannot leave it alone because of their belief that people not as good as them should be allowed to raid and get the same color gear as them.
To say dungeons are easier is subjective. Remember ICC PoS and more specially HoR? How many tanks baled when they see that coming? Or ZA and ZG? How complaints on how hard they were? Or did you only remember EoT heroics? They were easy because Blizzard changed it so it was easy and people could just farm it with little though.
Only once. I don't raid anymore (I just don't have the time/lifestyle to allow me to have consistent play times). So I'd do it to see the stuff, and then won't go back.

You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.
If every fight was a grueling battle with a tight enrage and many wipes each week, guilds would struggle to clear in the lockout. Gear helps nerf bosses you have already completed once so you can get to your progression boss sooner, rather than each week wiping multiple times on each boss, which would be a ton of time. Right now I can clear 10/14 in one night, 3 hours. If we still had the difficulty on some fights we had when we first started, we would probably end like 5/14. Gear progression is a huge part of raiding not taking 50 hours a week, although some still believe that.
Kill a boss, get some upgrades, get stuck on the next boss, raid time ends. Next week with the upgrades first boss is easier, more time to work on the second one.
Actually, do that. Kill raiding, pour the massive funds that go into raiding into content for casual players. Blizzard could afford to lose every single narcissistic know-it-all hardcore on the planet and it'd hardly put a dent in their quarterly earnings, looking at the Normal and Heroic completion rates posted for SoO.

Flex solves the same issue and has helped raiding use go up. I don't really see anybody asking for the removal of Flex right now. LFR does nothing more for causes than Flex does, LFR just helps scrubs get gear beyond what they are capable of.

So, lets ask the question again, would you raid again and again if you already beaten once and there were no loot to collect?
Oh, right, you're talking about me. Sorry that I base my opinions on evidence rather than feeling upset that a game with a player base in the millions no longer caters specifically to a single-digit percentage of its player base.
Looking at Siege, LFR still has a much higher participation rate than Flex, by at least half. Moreover, I've peeked at Trade on five different servers and on all of them, Flex pugs are asking for Normal-mode item levels. That locks out players LFR lets in due to item level alone.Flex solves the same issue and has helped raiding use go up. I don't really see anybody asking for the removal of Flex right now.

But, yes. LFR is easy. Very much so. It also isn't drawing on pools of players who would otherwise do higher difficulties--it primarily draws on a pool of players who never bothered raiding prior to 4.3. That's how the raid team was able to justify the budget needed for raids like the ones in MoP, because now 60% of the players who hit level cap are going in there and getting on the gear treadmill instead of 5-20% (giving very generous estimates here so you won't sit there lawyering at semantics like so many other people do).
