    Yay? I like LFR, however, I don't know why someone would be counting the days that it's been available... *Shrugs*

    Quality aside (IMHO ToV > ToC), ToV was a small patch release within a tier, ToC was a Tier.
    Ideally no one has ever hit the level cap of the last expansion, looked at their dungeon blues, and thought "I win."

    Veteran players: gg blizz, ruined the game, catering to casuals
    Current "hardcore" players: gg blizz, making game easier, catering to casuals
    Casual players: gg blizz, dumbing game down, catering to casuals

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
    Except the game was doing fine and thriving without it, so basically damned because you did.

You can't increase the raid rewards to make more people raid, because the activity itself is unrewarding. A good example of this is Heroic raiding, it's pretty faceroll in the grand scheme of things, and the rewards are fantastic, and yet people aren't flocking to it or even to normal. Nothing that Blizzard ever does is going to get people to go from LFR hero to organized raider. Even if they removed LFR tomorrow, or they went back to the WoD philosophy of garbage trinkets and no tier, those players wouldn't suddenly start raiding. They'd just stop playing.
    That's not really what I was trying to capture here. Not a driving of people away certainly. More the question of is the content inherently engaging to people, or are they doing it solely for a reward. You can get people to do content that they don't like if you slap a big enough reward on it. It's not a question of whether people would do heroic raiding or whatnot, that's actually pretty irrelevant. The question Blizzard will be looking at is are people enjoying the time they're spending doing the content that they're doing, because that's what leads to people sticking around. If they put something in that has 100% participation, but nobody enjoys it then that's not the sort of content that's likely to lead to people sticking around. I'm not saying that's what was happening with LFR, because there are clearly plenty of people who enjoy it. What I think they wanted to find out is how many were doing it because they enjoyed it and how many due to the rewards.
    Passionate about listlessness.

    Storytelling's picked up since LFR was introduced, probably because everyone can actually see the end of major storylines now. And I wouldn't have it any other way, tbh.

    if they removed lfr it wouldn't go back to 2006 WoW still. raiding is now accessible to anyone and, in my opinion, LFR is redundant. the premade group finder, flexible raid sizes, varying difficulties and cross-realm raiding all go a long way to making raiding easier than ever to get into. as someone who plays on an extremely low-pop realm, in a guild with essentially one other active member, i was able to achieve aotc casually raiding.
    normal and heroic should be the new "casual" raiding system. i haven't honestly done LFR for any reason other than free defiled augment runes on my alts this entire expansion, and with mythic+ dungeons and titanforging there is no problem with getting gear for normal/heroic raiding. LFR is, in my humble opinion, completely redundant and pointless.

    hint- they dont give even a single f.... because what speaks to them is 1 number - participation in X content - and lfr has amazing paritcipation better then all other modes together.

    so its will be here till the moment raids will be removed from game - aka never.
    Shipyard had amazing participation too

    but we all know how that really was
    Content drought is a combination of catchup mechanics and no new content.

    You include the 20th because its the day of, just as every Christmas calendar includes Christmas within the 25 days, the 2000th day is included.

    LFR is shit and should be removed. No need to celebrate an arbitrary time point of when it was released.

    Shit is still shit no matter what time its been sitting there.
