They had to. Blizz underestimated the value of communication.

LFR is hard not because of of how hard the boss or adds hit or because of how much HP they have, but because LFR is like herding honey badgers; people just don't give a shit, specially with no actual means of real time VoIP communication like the other raid formats have (Vent/Mumble).

How many times have we seen tanks, dps and healers show up to LFR without enchants or gems? how many times do people tunnel vision and do what they want in LFR? It doesn't help that many raiders have decided to fully forego LFR in favor of Flex, bringing the avg down across the board for LFR -- and every LFR has a couple of asshats like Preach that admitted to AFKing in LFR because it was beneath him.

Literally every boss got hit by the "less hp less dmg less heal" combo. :mrgreen:



Can't say I wasn't expecting it. At least getting to 530ish ilvl for Flex pugs will be less frustrating now.


Holy fuck, you now get SIX MINUTES to complete a quadrant on LFR.

Extra amusement: our railroad company, already under siege for its dreadful track record, had apparently a new radio spot this summer that lauded train delais for helping teenage kids spend more time with their loved ones on the platforms.

Riiiiiight :roll:

That's bullshit. There's plenty of communication:

"You guys fucking suck god why are you so bad you should all uninstall"
"HEY ANYONE GOT METERS FOR THAT LAST TRASH PACK GOD I'M SO GOOD LOOK AT HOW GOOD I HIT CHAIN LIGHTNING OVER AND OVER AGAIN"
"Hey guys I've never tanked this bef-" "fuck off scrub gtfo" /votekick
"It's okay guys another six wipes and we should be able to finally get immersius down! LOL DONT TAKE THIS GAME SO SRS BRO Y U HEFF BE MAD DOE"

If LFR was the only "raiding" I could do I'd probably just give up.

I think I had the most hilarious of those moments yesterday, when I demanded to votekick a person who has been afk for over 10 minutes, he came back to say "Lol I'm here for gear don't be so mad", as if it was a totally natural thing to be afk in the LFR while other people do the job.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
