Equal release of content to ALL MEMBERS.
for about 1/2 of the players its a choice between pay 25-100 for transfers or run LFR only because their servers dont support raid progression.
I do think holding LFR is silly, even though I understand Blizzard's idea behind it. They give the masses of players NO new 5 man's because of the time requirement and LFR has given these players new content in its place. Then take said new content that replaced their 5 man's and held it back from them.
They updated their model of content and kept their old thinking.
I did, but I disagree with the thought behind holding the content unless I am misunderstanding it. I think Blizzard is over thinking not opening it all at once to all 4 raid types.
I am generalizing but heroic raiders only care about heroic level accomplishments and generally not the story. Normal and flex people can do their thing, and LFR people can do their thing all at the same time and the world goes on. If people feel they have to do x for x, that is a problem they are creating for themselves.
I could argue about no new heroics like DS/ICC, and some could say but Timeless Isle. I just think time gating raids is a waste of time and promotes LOL casuals suck.
Either way, it is what it is and not the end of the world.
Is it bad that I have a problem with flex being staggered, not LFR? If Blizzard think it's progression content and you have to have an organized group, then why delay it?
Disclaimer: Not really a complaint, more of a question about their philosophy.
I've actually been discussing it with my guild. The only thing we can come up with is that it is essentially not a real "guild option" and the whole viable "progression raiding" thing is just lip service.
The difficulty is probably targeted more towards "organized pugs". Thus any normal-guild will just go in and stomp it out like its an LFR but pugs may struggle. Otherwise staggering it in such a manner doesnt make sense.
We could be wrong time will tell.
