I dont mind competing with others who need the gear Why does it matter if you lostaroll to Bob or Joe? You STILL lostaroll no matter what and DONT get the item, regardless...
I've personally seen an example like this:
Person rolling for an off spec they never play/rolling just cause they can: 100 roll
Person that legitimately could use the item now for there main spec: 99 roll
If that person that rolled for the spec they never play didn't roll (or just because), the person that could use it as an immediate upgrade would have won it. I've seen that entirely too much.
Then there's this:
Person rolling for a buddy: 100
Person that came in solo: 99
The guy that brought the buddy: 75
1. Buddy technically had 2 rolls. Which is completely against the spirit of why LFR was put in in the first place as far as gear goes.
2. Solo queuer would have won the roll legitimately if that other person hadn't paid someone off to roll for them (don't tell me it doesn't happen, because we all know it does).
I've seen it happen to too many people (not just myself).
The new system isn't perfect. But it's better than what we currently have. At least now, people don't have to worry about the buddy system. It puts everyone on a somewhat even playing field.
