    No. Multiple difficulties appeals to the most people. I think you (OP) are in the vast minority here.

    With no multiple difficulties, either every raid is "easy" and a large number of people have no challenge to be found in PvE, or some raids are simply impossible for lower-skill players to do. There are millions of people in the game, all with different skill levels (reaction times, multi-tasking ability, etc.).

    I don't want to, however, play mythic raids, when I can just beat it all in LFR.

    And Blizzard seem to think just because LFR is "popular" it's fun? It's not. It's just not hard at all and when you finally beat LFR it just feels like "finally". No excitement what so ever.
    Idgi, you aren't happy that LFR is easy, but also don't want to do real content?

    Why don't you just raid mythic? You know a mythic encounter is completely different than an LFR, normal, or heroic encounter, yeah? Most fights are radically different on mythic. You aren't really "seeing it" if you do it on LFR only.

    You aren't "beating the encounters" you're beating extremely watered down versions with different mechanics and even removed phases.

    Scaling just enables loot rewards to also scale.
    Does it really though? Think many people prefer lich king style of dungeons/raids than the crapfest that's been handed to us since Legion.

    Alright have fun playing a different game then. I actually like the scaling.

    One of these days the devs are going to make a change you don't like and you'll try to find someone to complain to about it. I hope they find the message of yours that I quoted and dismiss your complaint the same way you did to OP.

    I think scaling it up on major patches and having multiple difficulty settings is fine, but overall I agree with the sentiment. Endlessly scaling content makes it feel same-ey and like some sort of eternal treadmill.

    That said, it makes a lot of sense to do this on Blizzards part. WoW isn't pulling the same numbers it used to and I don't think the budget is the same it once was. Yet people still demand enough content to keep them busy for months.
    Scaling lets Blizz get away with making less content last longer while also allowing variable group sized to keep the game more appealing for thise without a core raid group of 60-80 people,

    it's optional. I don't even play the game and i know that.

    Let's see how long the game survives if LFR would be the only difficulty and there is no reason to do any thing beyond that.

    So is literally every scaled Raid/Dungeon in WoW.

    Not exactly but nice try. I swear this is 2020, i'd expect trolls to be of a much higher caliber now. Oh well.

    Sounds to me like normal is too hard for him.

    Except if there were no scaling there would not exist a single unattainable challenge in the game for many of us. There would not be any challenges at all.

    What you are suggesting is dumb for so many reasons that I literally don't even feel like typing all of them out because it's too long. All I'll say is I guess you'll just never do any raids/dungeons again because the current system won't be getting much if any change ever.

    Explain your thoughts. You are not force to do anything more than LFR if you do not want to. Hence it is optional. Same goes for M+.

    Quite literally exactly. Both games have a base difficulty and then an optional harder difficulty if you choose to challenge yourself.

    well... it seems you actually dont agree with him
    when there was (or would be in future) just one difficulty, you did it and there was no more challenge, now there is higher difficulty... mytic raid IS unattainable challenge at first check the classic, molten core cleared aaand nothing challenging to do now, bcs there is no higher difficulty raid (or any content)

    Were there no challenges in TBC? Hello? They have 1 difficulty.

    Why does 1 difficulty = LFR difficulty? It does not.

    I love how so many people here try to gatekeep their heroic/mythic raiding thinking people not doing it are not capable of doing it. I am perfectly capable, I just don't have any motivation to do it because I already beat the raid. Is that so hard to understand?

    "If you don't like LFR just don't do it LOL" - Same argument being used with flying mounts - "If you don't like flying mounts just don't use them LOL".

    MMORPGS aren't a single player game where you go in once and you're done, it has nothing to do with WoW but the genre as a whole and it seems like it's just not the type of game for you. The whole point is to progress and get harder until it can't get hard anymore.

    Because if you put all of the bosses in any of the TBC or Classic raids together it'd still have less mechanics than a single current day Mythic raid boss. Which is equal to LFR bosses nowadays, which also happen to have more mechanics than the "peak" of WoW's design. It's not 1 difficulty that = LFR difficulty, it's the fact that the boss fights when the game was at 1 difficulty only were a complete joke in comparison so the only valid comparison you can use for them is to call them LFR.

    Without scaling dungeons/raids - most people won't get to do them.

    Let's see - based on popularity:

    1. Normal dungeons only - no heroic or mythic or M+
    2. Normal 20 man raids only - no heroic or mythic.

    Who's in ?

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    Don't panic.
