I find raid finder to be more of a chore i need to do to get that one piece that hasn't dropped on normal or to cap my points for the week. It's usually filled with a people that either don't know what they are doing, know what they are doing but decide to do it differently to mess people up, or people that just complain and try to troll the whole time they are there. Honestly it's not for me. I know everyone does not have an experience like that and it's a great way to gear up alts, but just not something i enjoy.

Don't forget the people spamming the vote kick on people of classes who share their token, and the rest of the raid mindlessly clicking yes when no reason for the vote is given...

Yeah, this. On one hand, I like getting the raid finder loots on my alts, but the GIF theory is in full effect in LFR these days.

Not to give any trolls ideas, but my worst experience so far in LFR was a hunter (possibly more than one, not sure) who kept turning on Aspect of the OMGWTFWHYAMIDAZED during the ice wall phase of Hagara. That's the only time I've had the raid deliberately sabotaged for the lulz. There are idiots going AFK on autofollow and plenty of trash talking, epeen stroking, and other crap going on in raidchat, but I can ignore that fairly easily.Overall my experience with LFR has been positive. I've gotten to see the entire raid instance, whereas my casual guild, struggling with end-of-expansion, raid-leader-burnout, SWTOR-distracted doldrums, has only gotten to Ultraxion during our normal 10-man runs. I've also geared up my main faster, which is always a good thing.

Fortunately, if you do the Ice Waves right, Aspect of the Pack won't daze you. The only damage you can take in that phase on LFR is standing in the bubble or hitting a Wave. It's even possible that the hunter thought it was helpful to have Pack on. So if you're getting dazed in the Ice Phase, you must have been doing something wrong.Or it's possible the hunter turned it on too fast and people were still taking damage from Ice Lance or something.

I might actually enjoy LFR once the raiders are gone. I suspect it's these deadly serious folks who are behind the constant Recount posts and vote kicks while loling about the stupid crap their guildies are doing while doing nothing to punish them.How about giving us the option to join a group where there are no premades or guild groups that can manipulate voting?

If you want a group with pretty much no raiders, go on Monday night. Of course, you'll be lucky to finish the last 4, and at the very least it will take far longer than the 30-minute runs you can get on Tuesday or Wednesday, but if you don't want to run with the raiders, you have to accept the fact that you'll be running with more cluelessness.
