I don't get the point.
Yes, you said hundred of times LFR is for supercasuals who doesn't have another way of seeing raid content. But i'm from a guild that does normal modes and i'm obliged to do it every week to be competitive, and it's not enough.
After 2 weeks of raiding, we haven't killed the Stone Guards yet.
This is not a problem in tanking position, low dps or bad healing. Its a gear only problem.
Raidleaders force us guildraiders to make LFR to get better gear (i'm almost ilvl470), probably because there is no faster way to get gear. If we don't you have to spend weeks farming valor points till you can buy that 2200vp gear you need, or you have to pay thousands of golds for a crafted item at the AH.
At this point like Zarhym said (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7006893247), blizzard don't "force" us normal mode raiders to do LFR, but it's a hidden obligeration. If you don't LFR (or you are a pro), you fail. So in certain mode, you are forcing us to get gear first from LFR and then go to normal mode to succeed.
If LFR it's just a casual addition for people who couldn't raid normal mode (for time reasons etc), why do you force normal raiders to have to pass this horrible LFR thing if they want to do something?
I think the problem is LFR is extremely easy and normal mode is a bit overtunned. Normal is a step above where it should be if you want an easy transition. That way probably, you shouldn't be forced to gear up in LFR and let it only for casuals who doesn't raid normal modes.
You must be trolling. You must be. If not, then God have mercy.
Anyway let's clear a few things up. LFR is completely optional. If you don't want to do it, then you don't do it. That's how simple it is. The only purpose of LFR is to give the casual players a chance to enjoy current raiding content. Some of these casual players probably want to PUG a few normal MSV bosses each week though, so who are you to take that away from them?
Normal mode MSV can be easily cleared in heroic dungeon gear (463 ilvl) even by average guilds. Yes, you don't need LFR items (476 ilvl) to clear MSV. You don't even need the VP gear from rep factions.
You, or better yet, your guild not being able to kill even the first boss in MSV should raise other kinds of questions. Like, judging from your armory, you are missing gloves enchant and 2 jewelcrafting gems. Maybe your spec is wrong? I don't know. But, if you have some problems with your gear, then who knows what the others in your guild are doing wrong.
It can be anything. Starting from properly enchanting and gemming your gear, having the right spec and glyphs to knowing the tactics and how to execute them.
This being said, LFR should be the least of your concerns. Check up some guides, watch some videos and GLHF in MSV.
