I can completely understand where they are coming from. I raided with friends during wrath and eventually got to 11/12 on heroic 25 man icc and assumed that things would keep going like that during cata. Within a couple months of Cata the guild I was in almost completely fell apart so I joined a new guild with a few IRL friends. I spent months there pretty much doing nothing aside from some random bgs and dungeons. Then one day I met someone from my server in a bg where we carried are team and got to talking and moved my toons over there where I was able to do rated bgs almost nightly and soon joined the 10 man raid team during FL where we made a lot of progress in a short time. Then fall semester started and we lost a tank and 2 healers and many great rbg players. After lots of recruiting we recovered and then Star Wars came out and we lost most of the raid team and some more good rbgers. Since then I've only been in an occasional raid that pugs a few spots where I usually outperform everyone in that raid. What I've come to notice is I don't want to play Star Wars without my RL friends and I don't want to leave my guild as there would likely be no way for me to do rated battlegrounds again if I did. The LFR helped a few weeks but ultimately the experience is shallow. I don't feel excited to kill bosses in there.I blame most of these issues on the way raid lockouts have worked since Cata was released since I used to raid a 10 and 25 man version of many raids weekly and now have less content to do and can only do it once.
