Yeah...Pretty much every new boss raid or 5-er that I've seen since naxx, I find myself joking in chat "oh, this is just Heigan's dance, but with more shiny things on the left of my screen instead of right like that last guy."I feel like we all need to be wearing cowboy boots and hats that are frilly for actual cows, but just right for the C&W clubs downtown... :)Line dancing meets MMOs.Raids for me have been getting less interesting since I started them - having started in Kara. I joined near the end of Classic, and didn't hit 60 i time to experience any of those raids. But I've gone back to many of them on high level toons.- A look around and I can tell you had to think, and change up a lot. But that they were also designed with the understanding that 20 or so folks would screw up leaving the encounter to be done by the remaining 20 not yet face-planting....Some things have improved and others have not.What I miss most about older raids was tolerance among players for wipes. Back in Kara people just assumed you'd wipe on a boss for a few weeks until you all got it down. Now, 5 minutes into LFR, we haven't even wiped yet - and folks start giving up because one of the DPS is only pulling 20.7k DPS on a fight where he should have 20.71k...When you had to form groups, and you had to unlock things to even get in the door...- People felt more committed once there.Yes it was way too much of a pain to form a group most of the time, but once you had one, you all felt a commitment to work together for the goal.Now people give up way too easily on the whole thing or each other.
