    So you're mad because very talented people that are able to 4m a +10 are selling carries and someone gets 1-2 pieces of gear and a piece of Azerite while you're doing pug difficulty raiding?

    M+ was designed as an alternative to raiding btw.

    People doing only the minimal weekly-10 wont be that high in ilvl either.

    The average skillcap for doing 10-15+ keys is higher as what you need in HC raiding. You can pretty easy clear a HC raid with m+ players, but it is very hard to do m+ with the average HC raider. Raid roles are just more simpler and you have so many redundacy for your role, it doesnt even matter if you fail at playing the game mechanicaly and encounter wise, there are allways backups there.

    Players with 1 maincharacter spamming m+ for gear, will get a solid ilvl over time. You will even surpass some mythic-raiders, since they HAVE TO play multiple chars (4-6), so the played time has to be split.

    This was not the case in the past, since M+/Dungeon gearing had a pretty hard progression wall without WF/TF and raiding was just above. So the average raiding (now boost buying) player was above everyone else.

    If you were a HC raider before, you would allready min-max M+ gearprogression into your pve time and benefit a lot from the parallel gearprogression.
    If you were just tolerated in your family and friends HC raid as a free boost, well I have really bad news for you.

    people always take the path of least resistance. if you can get 4 friends together and chain run M+ and get better gear than heroic raiding or even mythic raiding on 1/10th the time commitment... who the hell is gonna commit to mythic raiding other than the most hardcore of hardcore's going for world first?

    M+ is a great addition, but the pendulum swung way too far in BFA and has essentially gutted heroic/mythic raiding beyond salvaging.

    Yeah, I miss raiding. I wish they would re-add set bonuses for raids. Even make them only work in raids, that's fine, but it gave me a reason to raid. I always said if they removed raiding I would quit, but I guess making it irrelevant is the same thing. Mythic+ just isn't very fun to me. I don't like the timed aspect or the random difficulty modifiers. I don't like generic loot at all though. I'd like to see maybe separate set bonuses for both raiding and mythic+ seasons.

    If raiding was the most fun thing you can do with friends, people would do it.

    LEGION's raiding community was hold together with masterloot exploitation and tier-set-bonuses. BfA only had to remove those 2 last chains from raiding to let players do in pve what they really like, playing with friends.

    After LEGION's M+ participation explosion, I would have hoped for some content/lore split between raids and dungeons, since its pretty clear that raiding in WoW is not the most fun thing you can do.

    On my server, chat is filled with Mythic + boost ..

    So, Blizz message to player base it Pay 2 Win? Buy Tokens and give gold to Mythic + boosters gets you gear better than Heroic Raiders?? WTF
    You really think people who are clearing M+20-25 don't deserve better gear than heroic raiders? You do know that "Heroic" is actually "Normal" mode, right? Where as people clearing that high are typically mythic level raiders.

    Also, if you raid heroic, your ilvl should be around 410 by now. I'm 395, and I don't even raid Normal. Most people clearing M+20-25, which is significantly more difficult than Heroic, are only 5-7 ilvls higher. Heroic also doesn't require a guild, tons of people pug it every week. Clearing M+ 20-25 consistently requires a lot more dedication than opening group finder.

    Your pay 2 win argument is also a massive stretch. Anyone who cares about this game enough to drop 40$+ on a single M+ carry is likely capable of just running it themselves. And even so, buying M+ runs isn't pay 2 win, you clearly don't know what an actual p2w game is. Check out some Korean mmos sometime.

    I have always preached that they need to make gear that is good for the content you do. Yes, that includes WQ gear as well as PvP. WQ gear should increase the damage you do in outdoor content and if you are full "WQ" equipped you deal more damage than a Mythic raider that doesn't have WQ gear. M+ gear is best for M+ etc. That way nobody feels forced to do content to maximize their output in a activity. You do the content you like and your character gets better in doing it, easy progression.

    fun is subjective. I have more fun raiding than i do 5 man content. By a significant margin. So did a lot of the original player base. The more the merrier.

    tier set bonuses are sorely missing, and masterloot was NEVER a problem. not for a second.

    The problem is that people in life and in gaming, always take the path of least resistance.

    it doesn't matter if you prefer mythic raiding if 99% of the wow population looks at the time commitment needed, and then looks at M+ and how you can faceroll your way to mythic raid gear and it's crystal clear why raiding has died in BFA, it's because of poor loot structures.

    They could solve this by putting legendary's ONLY off mythic bosses, new spells that ONLY drop off mythic bosses, new tiers that only dropped in heroic/mythic, etc. Maybe raid azerite gear has 8 rings instead of 4-5. INCENTIVE

    They've removed the incentive and made it one size fits all, so of course the players take the easy road. That doesn't mean it's good game design

    EDIT: You can actually say with a straight face that Destiny 2 has much better raid incentives, rewards, gear than WoW does. Destiny 2 raids offer better incentive than WoW. Let that sink in.

    i stopped raiding mythic since the end of legion sometimes i try it out again but it cant hold me rl.
    mythic + is just alot more fun not only that it gives good loot that can easly forge above mythic but it also has no lockout so infinite fun.
    maybe i am to old after 15 years of wow did some hardcore raiding here and there.

    But honestly i like small groups more i remember when i hated it 5 ~7 years ago its just alot personal with 5.
    Mythic raiding has only special 415 azeritetraits, trinkets + mostly the mount as exampel the elementual from jaina the but why doing it now instead everyone could 1 content and do jaina mythic with rnds every week.

    Anyways i am glad that mythic+ is there i think alot peopel like me prefer 5 man contet over 20 i would like the 10 man mythic alot more but you cant please everyone i play wow anyways it doesnt matter what blizzard rl does there are allways good things in every expansion

    For me Mythic+ is funner, easier to organize, and a better option than raiding.

    Why would Blizzard kill something for just you OP?

    Its not 2004 anymore, the new systems need to address the "new kids" not old farts.
    except that obviously has no continuety to it and people are quitting for that exact reason?

I do wish people would stop confusing the two.
    This.
    Also, it's easier (paritcularly as dps) to fuck up in your raid and not have to suffer serious consequences. High M+ are intense and the smallest mistake will result in an automatic wipe, I don't think it's fair to act as if raids are always harder content than M+ (or vice versa)

    People are quitting for all reasons all the time. Thats the normal in any MMO.
    People quit beceause there is not enough solo content.
    People quit beceause there is not enough group content.
    People quit all the time, funny enough often times for the opposite reasons.

    As someone who prefers the classic gearing system of raids>dungeons, it is kinda disheartening to see Mythic+ers getting gear better or equal to (But faster) than raid quality for much less effort.

    M+:

    • Are spammable, aka no lockout.
    • Are much easier to organize.
    • Provide heroic level of gear, and thanks to WF/TF, can match mythic level.
    • Provide the best trinkets, and have since Legion introduced M+.

    By comparison, mythic raids are much harder to organize, have a weekly lockout, take much longer and... What do you have to show for it? Some silly Azerite traits (assuming that PL didn't screw your guild), maybe a title and a mount, which will add to the 4665422789 mounts you already have. At least, in Legion you still had tier sets, but no, tier sets are bad and Azerite is good

    Heroic raid = old normal mode. Of course there's going to be several things you can do to get better than normal level gear.

    Why are the casuals so vitriolic today? OP has a point. I am not begrudging m+ players their loot. I am personally not motivated enough to do more than complete a +4.
    BUT why does something that is spammable have to be the best source of loot in the game? Why can't there be some sort of lock out system? 1 piece of loot a week. I know, I know. REAL players login once per week to collect their chest and then do their one dungeon per week but you all weren't doing that at the beginning of the season. I still support M+ getting the whole item level and TF. It is just the frequency in which they get the gear.

    Oh also. There should not be any dungeon loot and raid loot. It should be all the same loot so there isn't any discrepancy between the two modes.

    Heroic is too easy, takes a few weeks to clear. You can really only raid mythic if you commit to a set schedule and I’m not doing that. M+ is fun for a month (except in bfa where the trash and total design sucks) but then there’s nothing new for the rest of the expansion other than “Same dungeons, higher ilvl!”

    Cross realm mythic needs to be turned on permanently. And flexible lockouts in mythic. If you want to make rules for realm first guilds go hogwild, but let’s be honest, the top guilds regularly class stack and pull every trick in the book anyway so what does it matter?

    M+ happens because raids are not accessible enough.

    Most people I know prefer raids with their slow learning style to m+ with its “Go go go can’t make mistakes and must use an add on that tells you trash to kill” style.

    But raids are closed to anyone not in a regular raid group which demands that you set aside the same 6-9 hours every week. The playerbase is OLD. We need flexibility.

    I think the weekly chest should be removed from mythic+ It encourages the worst cases of behavior within the community and overly inflates the ilv reward attached to the activity.

    There is to much of a emphasis of cap it and be done and I think it contributes to a lot of the issues the system has.
