Our guild is requiring LFR, because despite having some heroic modes down and even with coins, some of us are still sporting blue's.
Furthermore, without knowing how VP gear upgrading is going to work, we are required to keep capping it until it's at 3000 so we are ready for 5.1 Sad to say, but LFR gives MORE valor points than actual raiding does. It's literally the fastest and most efficent way to VP cap. 180 valor for a full clear of faceroll LFR MSV, compared to a clear of MSV normal or heroic which only nets 150 VP. LFR full clear takes an hour tops because of what a faceroll joke that is. It's clearly the superior VP farming method over extra dailies or heroics. If this point right here doesn't ever change. we'll be running LFR with no need for gear until the end of expansoin just for the most efficient route to VP capping with minimum amount of time spent.
And none of this is Blizzard's fault, it's your guild's and your own for making the choice to be in a progressive raiding guild. It's as simple as that (no, really, it is).
Also, I don't follow your "It's faster to just do LFR and cap that way" logic either. I can do two heroics in about 30 minutes, which nets me 120 VP for the first time, 80 every time after. I usually end up spending 30-45 minutes doing an LFR run with a pug for 90 VP. I'm not seeing how doing Raids is the superior method of VP farming.
That logic is also broken, as even by casually doing a Heroic, Scenario, and two sets of Dalies a day with the intermittent LFR run thrown in, I end up capping my VP by Friday or Saturday. You act as though you must cap your VP at the start of the week, even if you don't intend to spend it on anything that particular week. Where in the hell is the sense in that? Does your guild require you to cap VP on multiple alts, thus requiring you to cap as quickly as possible?
If that's the case, I still fail to see how that's Blizzard's problem. As Zarhym, and anyone with a shred of logic and common sense will tell you, this is not something that is enforced by Blizzard or made mandatory by the game. You, and I cannot express this enough, made the conscious choice to join a progressive raiding guild. There are advantages and disadvantages to this. The advantages being the obvious privileged of seeing content before most other people, but the disadvantage being you are obligated to play the game a bit more often then most people (at least while you're progressing), and generally must do content you may not enjoy in order to retain your spot in the guild.
As others said: This is not something that Blizzard directly supports, and they will not directly cater to the game to make it easier and more enjoyable for you. If you are doing something you don't enjoy, stop doing it. If the disadvantages are that much of a con to you, than maybe the advantages of being in a progression guild isn't worth it. It's the conclusion I came to back in late BC and early Wrath, and I will never go back to being in a progression-minded raiding guild or team again because I didn't enjoy to do the things that were expected of me to retain that spot in the guild.
