#1 - 2013/09/12 11:32:00 AMI was under the impression that flex raiding was for friends who want to raid but sometimes can't field a full group of people so they can go with a lower number.
How did that turn into: queue for an LFR style raid and progress as far as you can, but if you don't make it to the end, you'll have to do the whole thing over again next time you form up?
What kind of design is this? What was the mindset to make Flex like this instead of like a normal raid zone? I was so pumped about flex, but this....I dunno, it feels very second class.
I would have preferred to be able to go with 13-14 friends and learn a boss or two in a night and then come back later in the week and learn a few more bosses. If people can't dedicate their time to a full raiding schedule, why would you make their ability for progression hinge on having to rekill bosses over and over?
I admit I was wrong.
The system is OKAY.
You are able to start a group and than enter the zone and THEN add new players in. It's a bit of a hassle but overall, it does work. I was also able to add people from other servers into the group. We had a guy from Magtheridon in our group from Stormrage. It's buggy, but it works. We started on Norushen with a 7 man raid to get it going, and then added in the people we needed to add in who hadn't done a boss before.
