Not for me it doesn't. I'm only in queues because I don't have the time to dedicate to all the BS that comes with needing a guild or competent pugs for normals and heroics.
I want a challenge, not a pushover.
It sounds like you want a solo challenge. Maybe WoW is not the game for you (other than brawler's guild).
LFR is a group challenge, all that "BS" you dismiss is part of the group challenge.
How can you tell this player they want a solo challenge they never said that , they did say they cant for whatever reason spend the time or effort to get into formal raiding, thats cool thats what LFR is for people just like them who dont have the ability to run normals
That doesnt mean they shouldn't play wow, that doesn't mean they don't want to see end game or compete within a group situation to beat an encounter. just that they cant do that in normals its not fun for them LFR is.
Wanting to do LFR because your not raiding with a guild and cant get a pug group doesnt mean your a loner who shouldn't be playing an mmo.
They clearly like wow its a game if they enjoy it there in right place regardless of how they play regardless of how you think they should play
LFR is how they like to do group challenges and this takes the challenge away whats wrong with them saying they dont like that whats wrong with them saying this will make the game less fun for them?
Your not a real player and they just a person on the wrong game because you raid in a formal way and they cant spend that same time
LFR is a legitimate way to enjoy the game if thats your bag, so is pet battles so is brawlers guild, if you play the game and enjoy it your playing the right way even if you dont raid.
