Equal release of content to ALL MEMBERS.

It is released equally. The difference is, you actually have to do something in order to access it. Nothing is stopping you other than yourself you realise?
09/04/2013 12:23 PMPosted by WarailaNo it's not... the staggered LFR release is to give raiders a chance to see the end boss and cinematics in normal mode before the easy modes come out and give everyone access to it.
It might sound elitist but it gives people a reason to do normal modes, to try and kill the bosses on normal before the faceroll comes out and devalues the experience of killing those bosses for the first time ever.I am sorry but I cannot even wrap my mind around this concept at all. The reason I want to do normals has nothing to do with LFr or even Flex. It does not devalue the kill for me at all. If I kill Heroic Garrosh while it is relevant, the fact that people have done it in LFR takes nothing away from the sheer awesomeness I will be feeling. I feel like it is the same as getting upset that someone beat a game on easy while I am duking it out in hardcore nightmare mode. I don't know about you but that is still fricken awesome to me and is no way devalued at all.
I think the biggest issue here is some people care more about what other people are doing than their own enjoyment. That or their enjoyment comes solely from doing something (anything) that most others have not yet. Be it seeing a raid or collecting all the pets in game.
Upfront clarity: the unlock schedule for LFR in 5.4 is exactly the same as it was in 5.2.
In the vast majority of cases raiders are progressing through Normal, and especially Heroic, at a steady pace over weeks and months. A very small percentage of the very best world-first raiders, of course, will complete the raids much quicker than that, but in the vast majority of cases raiders don't step into Normal and down the last boss that same week, let alone the third or fourth boss. Most Normal raiders will get the first few bosses down in the first couple weeks, and the unlock schedule of LFR is very much intended to match the median progression of a Normal raid group.
LFR allows players of all playstyles, without guilds or fixed raiding schedules, to experience the content. But the point isn't to be able to do so faster than guild raiders, or for a guild raider to feel like the best way to experience the conclusion to the Mists of Pandaria story arc is to hop into an LFR queue rather than to play with their friends.
Flex does have an accelerated unlock timetable, and the first wing will be available on day-one of the patch. While Flex has a lot of... flexibility, it still requires coordination of a raid leader to create a competent group. Potentially to your benefit though Flex is cross-realm, and groups can be built of multiple guilds and friends regardless of the realm they play on. Considering the increased difficulty of Flex we're not sure how successful day-one Siege of Orgrimmar Flex PUGs will be (and it is progression raiding, not just slightly harder LFR), but we're excited to see people give it a shot. That's probably an option a lot of current LFR-only raiders will find enticing, and could lead them to a regular raiding group, new friends, maybe a new guild, and even higher difficulty levels.
