For all years and all expansions I have had this issue.
I have never got in raiding scene. It is extremely hard to get in good raiding guild that actually can raid without any experience at all. Also gearing is big issue even though we have LFR. LFR as gearing route is very long and frustrating, people can easily farm LFR for months without getting any real progress in gearing.
I dont think I can get in Siege of orgrimmar anymore in this expansion because I did not raid in Cataclysm heroic level and by the time I have good gear for normal SoO, WoD is probably coming.
