All I keep hearing seeing about raids nowadays are story mode, easy mode. No. Just... no.
This is pretty much just a rant. Developers have consistently told us they want raids to remain the most "challenging" content in the game and most of you who complain are just plain lazy (im sorry if that was offensive) but its simply the truth.
Guild Wars 2 has one of the most accessible raids in any mmorpg, if you don't believe me try get in a mythic raiding team in WoW. People have killed a boss with only 2 players for godsake (provided they are very good). Why should every content in the game be spoofed to every player, why not have a sense of accomplishment doing something you usually just 1111111 through.
Most common type of lazy players:
I don't have time.
Yes, yes you do. Or at least majority of you do. Most raid group are 2 hrs per week. You honestly can tell me that you can't spare 2 hrs a week? (I do apologize if you are one of those genuinely too busy to play but to be honest there are enough things to do in this game other than raids if you can't spare 2 hrs a week)
Everyone around me ask for 500 LI
Well... no a few do. But if you are just starting to raid LFG is not where you should start looking to raid.
Joining Training Group Sucks/Slow/etc
Well, it is supposed to be challenging content
Everyone asks for meta builds
Make your own group where you can specify that you don't need meta builds. No one is stopping you
I just want to experience the story/I want to see cinematic/ etc
I only want to do see the story
Well a lot raiders raid weekly and by catering to players like this, it will slow down the production of the next wing. Putting in a story mode a lot of players will use it once, experience the story and never use it again. In my humble opinion, the resources that would have been used to dedicate to make a story mode can be used somewhere else.
I don't want to dedicate that much time to raids
Then you are not as interested in the story as you might have initially thought. If you were, you would work your butt off for it.
I'll update this list with comments that will evidently come.
Point is that "story mode" has been suggested so many times and we have yet to see one hint of the mode coming out, why not embrace the challenge and have a sense of accomplishment when you finally down a/that boss. Feel like the hero you were meant to be by bring down your enemy. Feel the frustration, the anger of the fail attempts and the relief and joy when you finally killed vale guardian/xera for the first time. The story is only part of the experience. How you raid and how you interact with your comrades in arms is the complete story.
Stop trying to make the game easier.
Are you ready to bring down the first raid boss of your life?
