Ill bite, Why "shouldn't" it be. LFR is low end content, it isn't normals. Plenty of people want to run their alts through, but don't have multiple 8 hour increments of free time to be spending into 5 LFR wings.
Why shouldn't LFR have a good or even exceptional ROI ?
you have to keep in mind, DS LFR ... 2 wings. 2 hours investment to clear both on a good day. 1000 valor for doing both.
Now, its 5 Wings, 1.5-2 hours a piece per wing, not per raid. (they are harder than DS was) ... and they give 90 valor a piece. total of 450 valor. Items dont cost less... They just gave us less valor per week, less valor per LFR wing. if it was 200 valor for the first time you did a wing of LFR, I could understand.
But you still have the point that in DS, people queued for one of two wings. You had 50% of people in one or the other. ... now you have 20% ... your chances of finding a the missing class you need went from 50% to 20% ... It would be cool if we could get a Random LFR, where you get 200 for the first run a week, 50 per additional run, and you could be used for any of the other queues.
And please RNG hurts the game and helps the game. It needs to be managed and adjusted to be less punishing, but keep some distance on time spent vs gear. And allow people to finish a character... Allow them to move onto an alt and run LFR without having to keep doing it on their Mains.
