I love the argument of "I don't have time to cap my VP!"My guess is that most people have the time, they're just too lazy to do so. Or they put it off until the last second and then throw up their hands and say "screw it!" when they can't grind out 980 VP in 5 hours.imho, if you're on a raid team then you should cap your valor or at least come damn near close otherwise you're holding your team back.

Interesting. Lazy? Really?I generally have about 4 5-hour sessions available per week for me to game.Perhaps it's just the runs I've been in, but the typical Zandalari heroic I've been in has taken 2.5+ hours. Mathematically, I could (with luck) squeeze 8 of them into the time available. Realistically, I could fit 4 of them in, but not 7. And at that, they would dominate my play time.I'll assume you'll excuse me for not running a heroic if the guild is, for instance, killing firelands trash for rep and epics. But that time comes at the expense of one of those Zandalari instance runs you want me to run all the time.Another thing I spend time on is fishing for feasts. The guild benefits directly - I'm one of the few feast providers we've got. How about the "opening up the firelands questing areas"? No gear out of there? I kinda thought that there was, though. An argument can be made, though, that those can be squeezed around the primary goal of "run another zandalari heroic".What's that? You're saying I'm not putting enough time in to *really* raid? You may well be right. If you're really saying "you're not putting in enough time to raid *with my group*" then I'll take your word for it.But I don't really think that lazy is the right word to use for those of us who don't have time to optimize our valor point gain.
