I personally think that splitting the lockouts again is a great idea and the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. There used to always be something going on when it was this way. I personally really liked the 10-251 ilvl & 25-264 ilvl set up w/ separate lockouts. Gave you a another option of improving your gear but I suppose LFR gear fills that gap. Even if they made the second raid you ran in a lockout period drop LFR quality gear, I'd be cool w/ that. Maybe LFR gear you can only get through that 2nd raid. Bring back raids to do. Now it is dead for half the week as in everyone is saved making it really hard to fill a PUG just for something to do.
Ppl don't have to run both, while minmaxers/hardcore raiders will most likely, but ultimately that is their choice. Why alienate those who aren't minmaxers, which just so happens to be a larger % than hardcore raiders? I think there needs to be more to do on the PVE side of things. This would be awesome.
An alternative is to have 2 weekly resets like they were supposedly trying in Korea iirc. It's an option.
LFR is no more than a glorified 5 mans w/ a 500% increased margin for error over 5 mans. Hell the Trollroics were harder than LFR. I too do not considerate LFR raiding aside from it being called that.
I think PVE needs more options, and I am happy to see that Blizzard is thinking on how to produce said options.
