Man, I can't be the only one fed up with those horribly staggered LFR releases. =/
Trust me, you're not. -_- Two and a half months from when the patch drops 'till Archimonde's available seems a little extreme.
Seems Blizz really wants casual players to run Normal mode. I personally don't have an issue with the 10-week delay until Archimonde, but I can understand people who do, as it will be September at that point.
The reason LFR is so staggered is so that casual raid groups actually have a chance to down Archimonde before LFR players do. I see nothing wrong with it; trust me, those who only do LFR will have plenty of time to kill Archimonde in LFR to your heart's content.
http://www.wowhead.com/bluetracker?topic=19797619The paragraph I wanted to emphasize is:With the upcoming release of Patch 6.2, the Arena and Rated Battlegrounds Warlords Season 1 will be ending.Don't we already know that WoD season 1 is ending at 23th of June for US ?And according to that, doesn't it mean that 6.2 arrives at 23th to US players ?I mean, what exactly don't you (we) know yet ?
this sucks..have to wait 2 damn weeks for lfr to open..I know for fact my guild wont be able to do first boss on normal..hell we barely can do brf bosses on normal..only killed 4 so far....
I was pretty sure the patch was going to be on the 23rd, but between no released trailer, no dates in this post, and new Shipyard content added on the PTR on Friday, I'm not so sure anymore.
the real question here is why LFR exists at all. Why we can't just have random people grouping together in a que to down normal and heroic is beyond my understanding. If the reason is becaue they want to promote group play and guild events..well you destroyed guilds when you took away the majority of perks. Guilds are disbanding left right and center and the ones that aren't are up and down up and down or mostly just dead. Can't you see that? Just get rid of LFR in general. Make a 4th difficulty for players that can't do normal and let us que for it. You are running lfr under the assumption that it is basically geraed towards players who don't have time to raid or the skill to raid. Great..except most of them do have the skill to raid and the time to raid..but are either guildless or in a guild that is dead. LFR is treated like second class and the people in there are trash talked and put down. A lot of them are on alts and have downed mmythic. they are just there to get their runes or whatever.. alot of htem are good players who have time consuming lives. its time to move beyond lfr. you have the tech for it..you got rid of the individual lockouts for normal and heroic. there's no reason a normal/heroic Looking for Raid can't exist, except that you don't want it to.
Guys, stop whining about how long it will take for the full release of the raid on LFR. If the raid was available on LFR immidiately, most casual players would clear it in the first day. Then they would get bored pretty soon, consindering that there's nothing else to do, so Blizz has to buy time, somehow. Also sell more prepaid cards... 10 weeks is certainly ridiculous... so either start normals/heroics or, if you dont have much time, stop your sub for a month or two...
Maybe i`ll try do some Heroic or Mythic HF. I honestly hated HM, and i lost interest in doing BRF after i lost interest in the actual PvE Content (Besides Rukhmar that didn`t drop the mount yet! - f@$#er). Still, when is 6.2 going live?
Releass is going to be most likely 30.06 or 01.07 , maybe even 7-8.07 !
Actually i found it quite difficult to pug normal raids even, as the party leaders usually ask for ilvls higher or equal to the raid loot. Just my personal experience of course, so I find it less of a hassle just queuing for LFR. I have no issues waiting for LFR to unlock, I can take my time with the Tanaan jungle questing and gearing alts
10 weeks for LFR. Hmm not sure if i will wait for it. thinking about canceling my account. For ppl who are'nt in a (raiding) guild this wil take to long. It is hard to get Pugs on the servers due to to the absurd demands of the pug leaders.To bad Blizz is doing this
