WoW: Accessibility and Apathy
In the ongoing conversation about the benefits/detriments of Raid Finder, mr. Mike Preach Wow over the tubes of You has successfully killed Lei Shen while acting like a complete idiot. This includes not using poisons, not using envenom, and either putting other melee on follow or just running around and doing literally nothing.
The video is rather long. And the accent makes me a bit uncomfortable (American Accent is best accent NA), but it's rather disturbing/eye-opening to see the tragedy of raiding with LFR. The general gist of the video is that having an environment where there is ZERO incentive to play better is very depressing, and could do serious harm on a new players' impression on the game in general.
A longer post on this sometime in the next few days, but I figured getting this video some more recognition would do well to stir up the discussion. Also props to Darniee and Exaltus for starting a discussion about this and bringing it to our attention. And here's the full video description
"The purpose of this video is to demonstrate the problems faced by new players when joining the game and why they do not feel the incentive to advance into the game. This video in no way is suggesting 'wow is too easy' or any other conclusions surrounding that statement people wish to force upon the video. The same goes for 'rose tinted goggles' or special snowflake' and any other nonsensical arguments that are not mentioned in any way
No friends/guidlies etc were in the dungeons.
I did 0 damage for the 5 mans and all of the initial LFR's until ToT
I did horrific Damage to appear on the dmg meter in ToT
I was kicked a grand total of once after using /follow as a test."
