LFR Needs a revap

So I am a tad sick of spending 2+ hours to do an EV or KP in LFR (Looking for Raid as it is called in wow) and then not being able to complete the mission to get the BH tokens at the end. I guess I am less frustrated with that as the inability to get back into a group to attempt the ops again and or get the boss you need down. My frustration hit its peak this week as I had two fail groups. One on second boss of KP (The DPS was way to low) and one on the last boss of EV (The people were just stupid). I really donít mind people going in to learn and gear up, but when they cannot play their toon and they have no gear they cannot always just be pulled through. I am guessing that the new level to 50 fast has had something to do with the influx of people that are gearless and clueless. And no you cannot take shots at me because before I took my BRAND NEW 50 HEALER into these LFRís I spent a night (Just one night 3 FPs) getting 2 pieces of Tier 2 and crafting the best stuff I could. No one carried me through the ops I did my role well enough to get me through the ops. Anyway back to the point.

We need some way to finish the weekly if we end up in a fail group. I spent 5+ hours in fail groups this week and got NOTHING to show for it.
Bioware please
A) Spread the rewards out so even if the group fails to finish you get something off the boss you killed.
B) Allow us back into the ops (Even if we cannot loot the bosses were locked out on) So we can redo and or complete the ops.
Finding a group of 7 other people that are locked out at the same point as I am is simply not going to happen. And standing in Fleet yelling for 3 hours to get a group going pisses me off.
Anyway 5 hours of content and no rewards does not make me want to continue playing.
That's 20 BH coms I lost this week because of other people!

I know your pain trust me on this one but honestly the best advice I could give would be find a decent raid progression guild, but it will be up to you if you want to take the advice or not, if your not into guilding then unfortunately you have become one of a umber of people with this problem and at the worst time, especially when everyone is under the new trend of "collect comms so ready for 2.0 gear fest"

joining a guild is the best advice.

solo play in mmos is what pvpers do. if you want to raid and experience end game group/ops content regularly a good guild is the best option. if you dont like guilds then you will unfortunately continue on the path of frustration currently set upon. lockouts are common in mmo raid instances. weekly ones are rather long imho but it helps lengthen the end game somewhat.

dont worry though as when the new expansion hits the crafted lvl 53 mods are significantly better and your bh coms will only buy the same gear you can buy now.

your suggestions though are not bad. but many of this games ops mechanics are rather common to mmos. most of us know this. this is why we are in guilds and are particular whom we have in our ops.
