This will last a few weeks, then you won't notice the boosted chars.
Why complain about it like someone shat in your cereals for all eternity?
And not just OP, everyone.
Confession; I find the fights in LFR bland and spend most of my time fighting the boss wishing it would be over faster. It just feels like burning through it's HP for x minutes.
I also have no interest in raiding in a normal/heroic setting, I just want some gear to make the stuff I actually want to do a bit easier. And not being ganked while running across Timeless Isle because I have 450k HP.
FYI, I don't fight back, I have no change against PvP geared players that focus me in crappy PvE gear.
Overall agree with op, and it's written in a way i can relate to. I don't understand why they didn't implement something like a temporary finishing quest, that dropped them in proving grounds with the requirement of bronze to move out in the real world. Would have been simple and would have helped avoiding the worst frustrations in lfr.
Everyone has so much to say
They talk talk talk their lives away
Imo its not that bad anymore... at first it was like hell when all the boosted 90s came into LFR.
Now its a lot smoother... people now know that they have to play in a proper way because otherwise they would wipe. Moreover i have the impression that a not so small part of the boosted chars are playing better than the "usual" LFR Player, simply because they are alts and the person playing the char has already experience at least on flex. There is also always quite a big part of players with "Hellscreams Downfall" in the raids... of course i know that a lot of these titles are bought, but once you have at least one Tank who knows what to do + 2-3 healers that arent afk + at least 2-3 DDs who are doing >100k DPS, then usually you can clear LFR quite easy without wiping when the rest of the raid pays attention to the bosses, which they do now and didnt do before.
most of those people are playing like shit cause they are the usual "famirng lfr weekly on 10 chars nerd" who are used to alt tab and afk only now it doesnt work cause lfr is full of them - its bs thinking its the casual players who are at fault.
I'll admit gearing up via LFR is boring. Mostly because it's so easy. I afk during trash and sometimes in the middle of boss fights. Although, If a wipe is in the realm of possibility I try my best to prevent such a situation.

That being said, the last LFR had 2 tanks who were boosted, it didn't go well.

Wod so disappoint.
Ill convert my HAVE to do LFR to, LFR is close to mandatory if I don't want to have to spam dungeons to create an artifical ilvl with pvp gear, its just a bit more long winded. Off to get my pvp helm.

So what you're saying is that people are doing the exact same thing now that they did a month ago or six months ago or a year and a half ago? Fucking shocking discovery, better alert the media.
I sometimes see some people posting on here saying we should help eachother more and I would really like to see everyone help eachother and things working out but let's not pretend that after random LFR/LFD group #96 you are going to explain tactics or help out some random person with playing their class for the hundredth time. Been there, done that.

Currently playing Final Fantasy XIV. All melee classes overlap far too much mechanically but are thematically interesting.
My opinions: 5.0 was the golden age of content, the ability prune barely did anything, and 6.2 is actually an enjoyable timesink.
