LFR feels forced because you basically need the gear to work your way into flex/normal, need it to work on legendary quest chain, and fill in gear gaps, etc. In terms of difficulty it completely holds people's hands in a way that makes people who might otherwise be decent ignore mechanics that would otherwise be important. Taking someone who has only done LFR and putting them into a normal raid means having to completely re-teach them how to do trash and every boss because otherwise they will die repeatedly and wipe you because they're so different in terms of mechanics and difficulty. LFR breeds bad players and takes away development time from the actual raids.
The point of heroics and hard content is to challenge players to work together and improve their personal skill and reward them accordingly. It requires you to know your rotation, how to gear and to learn the mechanics of every fight, instead of just AFKing and having your cat walk across your keyboard for 5 minutes.
Why get a job and make money if you're just going to spend it? Why be alive if you're just going to die? What a silly question.why even try if you know you are gonna wipe?
To improve to the point where you can execute the mechanics correctly as a group and beat the encounter.It's just pointless xD and then spending 4 hrs on the same boss.. like what's the point?
This may baffle you but some people actually enjoy being good at things and actually try instead of complaining when something is too difficult.So i basiclly like sleep at the keyboard.. barely focusing just pressing my buttons making sure i don't stand in sheet, but Seriously.. how people can think heroic is fun baffeles my mind xD
It's called improving over time. People learn at different paces and in different ways. You're trying different strategies and getting people practice doing various mechanics and eventually it culminates into a kill. If your attitude is 'why bother trying, we're just going to fail anyway", your guild should definitely find a replacement for you because that attitude is terrible and toxic.You do a few tries and.. then when you always wipe before the boss is even below 50% health.. then you know every try is gonna be like that for a long time so why even bother trying? if you know it's gonna fail anyway?
Did you ever think maybe your guild doesn't kill anything because you and possibly others have bad attitudes and are probably holding the good players in your raid back? Nobody is holding a gun to your head and making you raid heroic. If you don't like it, quit.But i do feel "forced" too attend since i don't wanna loose the raid spot or the connections and ofc i wanna be there if there actully would be a kill at some point,
Then go do LFR and heroic dungeons, that's what they're for. Mindless, eyes glazed over, pseudo-pve for people who don't care about getting better at the game but want to feel like they're raiding anyway.I raid for gear, fast and easy gear Doing the same boss for hours for the sake of 0 items.. just is not fun.. i find it weird how some people can enyoy it
I hate LFR because it breeds players and attitudes like this.
