    The need for a certain amount of tanks/healers are almost always the issue flex wont do anything about the tanks and very little about healing.

    Any solution planned for this?
    Organize premade LFRs with a guild, group of people on your server, OpenRaid, oQueue, etc. It will help foster a sense of community if you play with people from your own guild/server and the LFR queue system will fill the empty slot with pugs if you don't quite fill up or if someone has to leave. There are a lot of people looking for higher quality LFR experiences and I'm sure some people would also love to avoid the 1-hr long queue times Also people tend to try harder when they are not in an anonymous group, and the tanks and healers get less harassment from premade groups.

    Something to consider anyways. Our guild used to do premade LFRs during T14 but now we pretty much stick to flex/normal + hm runs for alt runs.

    Good luck

    But you could have bought two for 50k coins each instead of a pointless mount

Fuck no, you hit a button -> accept queue pop -> press 1-3 buttons (most dpsers do that blindly it seems...) -> get reward.
    Er, Diablo's a solo game and WoW's an MMO, so you can't compare them in terms of endgame completion and expect the same behaviour.

    Because Blizzard only care about content exposure in the lowest difficulty, because if the raid gets overexposed they are legitimised to make raids for the next set of content. LFR was required because the exposure of Firelands was so poor, no-one was seeing the raids.

Even with heroic SoO boss achivs people will NOT take me into Flex groups on my realm because my ilvl 'is too low'.

    So I'd love to know how you jumped straight into Flex with just timeless gear.
    Indeed. On my server it's becoming more and more common for people to ask for 550+ and AOTC for flex 4. I know people want quick runs to gear up their alts etc. but it's getting fucking ridiculous.

    EDIT: Although I should point out I can sympathize, over the course of the week I've spent roughly 4 hours wiping on Malkorok or Siegecrafter because evidently reading the dungeon journal is just too hard for some people. Ultimately the fact that people can keyboard turn their way through LFR and jump into flex with 0 knowledge about their class or boss mechanics shows a complete and total failure by Blizzard to create an environment where players learn anything.
