Is raid finder bad for organized raiding?

Published March 14, 2016 by majickmanwow


The Raid Finder function, affectionately known as LFR, has been marred in negativity since its implementation in Patch 4.3 during Cataclysm. Some of the negative comments has been that it cultivates habits of ignoring raid mechanics to it destroys communities because it allows a person to queue alone for raids. While some of that is true, the gear that you receive from Raid Finder has a lower item value than that you get in Normal, Heroic and now Mythic raids.

With the implementation of Legendary components you need to get in raids, I feel it has been a great source of such components without putting the effort of getting a group together and raiding older content like Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry, when as this is written Hellfire Citadel is current raid content.

I, personally, find that some people in LFR to be insufferable, but then again you’re always going to get people like that in most multiplayer games, then you get people who don’t pull their weight, people who will rush ahead pulling everything in sight, and people who rage quit when they don’t get the loot they want, making for a longer LFR experience than you anticipated.

On the other hand, I’ve had awesome lighthearted fun doing LFR for legendary content in Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry, and people who are willing to show others what to do in certain raids, some people who will lay out feasts for people, even though it may not be needed.

With all the ups and downs that you encounter in LFR, is this something you overwhelmingly hate? Or is it something you find is vital to the life within Warcraft?
