Why Does LFR Still Exist? Today we discuss why we think LFR is no longer relevant to the raiding scene. Drop a like if you enjoyed!
Looking For Raid is FUCKING CANCER!
If it weren't necessary for speedy Valor farming, I would not ever touch this cancerous shithole. (Yes, that's why Valor wasn't added to Normal, Heroic, or Mythic modes for ANY Draenor raids; it was to compel raiders to do LFR and thus improve LFR participation metrics so the devs could justify raiding to the moneybags, instead of sticking a gun to their heads and say "Cut the check or get terminated" like how it should be done.)
I've heard all of the excuses. Bullshit, all of them. Normal is sufficiently easy for anyone who isn't a wanker or a retard to run it, beat it, and get the gear. Sure, you have to actually abide by mechanics and perform as a team, but you should be used to actually Gittin' Gud by now if you're a true gamer. Unless it's just after the weekly reset, LFR is a reliable shitshow of stupidity, incompetence, and retards and best avoided. The lack of ANY qualification other than Item Level hurts bad; it should have been Proving Grounds: Gold.
(And yes, there are players who cannot pass Proving Grounds: Silver in order to queue for Draenor Heroics. That's how shit a lot of them are. Removing that requirement in Legion is going to be disastrous.)
The Fatboss boys lay out a very good argument for killing LFR now, and I'll back it so long as it means LFR goes. Normal Mode is sufficient, and putting a Proving Ground requirement on it to boot guarantees that the worst get culled. (No, you're not entitled to be there; paying the sub fee doesn't entitle you to anything but logging into the game.)
What it comes down to is that LFR is detrimental to the game as a whole, so cutting out LFR goes a long way to improving the game. Punt the suck players; they have no business raiding anyway. Can't commit to the schedule? Too bad- you're not entitled to raid. Can't meet standards? Too bad- you're not entitled to raid. Raiding is intended to be exclusive. LFR is what happens when cultists screeching about "inclusivity" get their way. Fuck that. Kick it to the curb, and make World of Warcraft great again.
