"It's a bandaid to hold off until MoP brings in all the "you don't have to raid to get VP capped" options, and then the only people raiding at all will be the people that want to"I really don't agree with this idea. I mean, we ALREADY have non-raiding ways to completely VP cap. And also, if you're not interested in raiding, why care about VP? Gear that looks shiney? They've got that covered with Transmog... The only argument is that people want better gear. Okay... but the better gear comes from actually raiding. So there's always that trade off that'll come and ultimately, if all anyone is interested is getting that better or best gear regardless of how much crap they have to wade through, they're gonna keep trying. It's a priority thing and there's no way to force someone to change their own priorities. You can't even compare the gear from LFR to that from actual raiding because players will ALWAYS haze you for it. So that problem's not fixed either. Also, that community driven peer-pressure that if "you're not actually raiding; you're still inferior" still stands in this system as well.So no, I don't believe that providing all these new ways to cap VP will change the way the LFR all too much. What WILL change it is when people try it for a month, get sick of the condensed idiocy and give it up forever (a group in which I will probably end up =p).
