When some of your players are telling you that they don't like LFR, or dailies; and that they don't enjoy being forced to do them in order to aid their progression in normal and heroic raids; then the honest - and correct - response is this:
"We have analyzed the preferences of our player base, and we have come to the conclusion that most of our players enjoy the presence of LFR / dailies / insert feature more than its absence. Even though it isn't as challenging and compelling as raiding with friends, experience has taught us it is better that we offer something for players to advance their main characters, rather than nothing. It is true that this creates incentives which mean that if you choose to not do LFR / dailies, your gear level, and therefore your perception of your status within your group, can be somewhat lower. It is true also that if your whole group chooses to not participate, your group progression will be slower. However, we believe that most of our players prefer this to the alternative, which is that there's no way to continue progressing your character after you're done raiding. We cannot have it both ways, so this is how it's gonna be, for now."
To an extent, we did see the above, in blue posts other than Draztal's.
In Draztal's posts, however, we are seeing lots of this:
"You aren't forced to do LFR / dailies. The problem is in your head. Raids are tuned for heroic gear. Your evening of wiping at 1% is imagined. Upgrades are optional."
This is straight, bold-faced lying, and is a discredit to the blues.
