Sep 14th 2011 9:10AM When you group with guildmates that are a little undergeared/underskilled, you also have to deal with the fact you are not getting the 'luck of the draw' buff as well.
One reason why last time I did a troll dungeon I used LFG (also got that CTA satchel).

I'm sorry but you are wrong here. Why would anyone in their right mind run ZA/ZG if all Heroics gave you 140 VP? Especially since you can farm JP for 359 gear. They take twice as long - that's why they give you twice the reward. All this QQing will, if anything, make ALL heroics give you 70 VP.
The optimal (maximum) weekly Heroic round up is, I find,
6x"normal" heroics for 420 VP
4xZA/ZG for 560.
Sure you are running 3 'more', but it will probably take the same time and breaks up monotony quite a lot.

I wrote, in paragraph #2:
"I canceled my subscription (but it still has two months left). I may come back - I'm not sure."
What part about that sentence wasn't clear?

GET A CLUE!!!! 5 minutes? Rarely happening? QQ'ing? Are you insane???? Maybe on your server.
I "rejoined" WoW after a few years four months ago. It has been an problem since then on my server "Kargath". The problem has also gotten worse every month. I spent hours and hours of wasted precious time doing the portal dance thinking ("I'm paying for this?"). Many groups I was in (that were difficult to form to begin with) disbanded after about 20-40 minutes of doing the same (about the time that people say "Forget it"). I canceled my subscription (but it still has two months left). I may come back - I'm not sure.
It's a HUGE issue. I mostly PVE and quest. When I do decide to do a 5-man, almost EVERY time it was a hassle unless I entered the dungeon in the morning or early afternoon, and of course, at that time, it's harder to find a group.
I have never complained about a computer game company, a game, etc; in my decades of gaming. This particular instance (pun intended), especially when there's a $15/month subscription is inexcusable. In addition, Blizzard is most certainly revealing as little information as possible regarding the issue (are some instances given a better chance to get in, when will fixes be made, how much of the problem will be alleviated, why are some low population servers having more problems than the high population servers, etc;).
Don't speak about an issue you obviously aren't aware of. There's a reason that hundreds of pages of threads have been devoted to this on the WoW forums.
