Woke up at 1AM, showered and got ready for work only to recieve a text saying I didn't have to be in until 3 hours later than planned. Which means I'll be finishing somewhere around 4 hours later than planned because we'll hit an extra break.


Up side: tomorrow I will probably only have to be in at 6.

He just really hates that one Panda.. probably Lorewalker Cho, that lazy bastard that keeps locking us in rooms with pissed-off Moju.

I was excited because it's Tuesday and was looking forward to the new LFR wing today... I'm afraid not, next wing opens until next week... FML..

Man Blizzard it's surely driving out the casuals fast, we are down to 19% participation at the island, 90% towards gate 4, rares are no longer camped, there's hardly any PUG raids going (even T14), the graveyard locations when you die are so badly located everywhere (on top of the lazy code writing not allowing to fly while dead), and the bad RNG on the existing LFRs (at least for me, I've only won 1 item, on 3 toons on 2 weeks ( first week 9 bosses 9 coins, second week 18 bosses, 18 coins), and that item was: a NECK PIECE

We're also down to 19% participation, but I mostly chalk that up to people hitting Exalted and not wanting to bother doing more and/or raiders are clearing more content and needing less and less valor from dailies every day.

i am seriously thinking that guy is the secret bad guy for this expansion...i mean how much crap has he had us kill since we landed even though one of the shas is the sha of violence?

and like you said, he locks us in with mogu devices

Yeah, I'm only doing the dailies there once or twice a week, I don't have time to sit down and do that daily, and I'm certainly not going to once I'm valor capped (nor am I going to spread out my time to aid in that).

Besides... unless you are a blacksmith, I see absolutely no incentive to unlock the rest of the island. Blizz really screwed up on this, because there really is no incentive for anyone else.

Engineers get to create a new part THAT IS TOTALLY USELESS BECAUSE BLIZZ REMOVED THE ITEMS THAT NEED IT.

There is the new "world boss" but considering my curse of RNG, that's a pointless effort.

So yeah.. Blacksmiths... get to work, the rest of us will be back here at the camp.

I think the numbers are all a shell game. Unlocking seems to be progressing at a steady pace no matter what the participation numbers are saying.

Guild healer when both ToT wings on LFR last night, got 2 pieces, keep bitching about RNG and I'll keep tossing out "sucks to be you."

Like I stated before they have a very specific method to count progression towards unlocking.

1) You have to visit the island at least once that day.
2) You do one daily.
3) You have full participation for the day.

You don't count towards it if you never visit the island.

Sa participation percent is totally meaningless because people who have zero desire to do the dailies will go to the island to raid pushing down participation percent.
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.

But the point remains, unless you are a blacksmith, who cares?... If they wanted participation, they should have locked the raid behind it. As it stands, only the BSers care (and the daily addicts).

Exactly. Who cares, except for people who want to do it. Three people could visit the island every day and do a grand total of 3 daily quests and you'll have 100% participation. Or you could be on a super high pop realm and have 1000 people visit the island on a day with 900 of them being raiders and 100 doing dailies and have 10% participation.

Why the fuck are people complaining that optional daily content is fucking optional yet people bitch that the previous optional daily content was "required."

Can't win. Don't try.
