Why does nobody stack behind that one wall on the skeletal lich anymore?

Seriously? Why does nobody make use of this mechanic anymore? It's not just this year the stacking has stopped, it also seemed to just stop the year before. Did they change this labyrinth boss so that people don't stack on the old spot like all those years before? Or are there just lots of noobs these days?

    It's not really necessary any more. Even disorganised groups can beat him where he is with relatively little trouble, so it's easier to just get on and fight him where he is than try to get everyone to stack in the right spot, rangers to recall their pets, wait for the necromancer minions to be killed off and then have one person pull the lich over.

    Strange if they're so easy why does everyone skip the bosses in lfg? Why is everyone being such a kitten in lfg? Don't these filthy casuals raid? Even raid bosses are a joke and it's considered "hard content"

    He gets skipped because the time to kill is not worth the reward.

    There are plenty of groups in LFG who kill the bosses, they're usually marked as 'all doors' or something similar. I always pick those ones and have found several to choose from every time I've looked (although like all lab groups many of them are on maps which are already full).

    If you're strictly looking for the most gold/ToT bags per minute then it is better to skip the bosses because they take longer to kill than normal enemies. That's why a lot of groups will skip them - they're perfectly capable of killing the bosses, but they can kill far more normal enemies in the same time. The groups who do kill them generally do it either to break up the monotony of running in circles spamming skills or because some people need to kill them for achievements.
