I don't like WvW so I don't finish my monthly, I did it once and that was enough... If you take 4 hours to find a group you are doing it wrong... if you complain about PvE being a requirement there are tons of PvErs who would say that making WvW part of the monthly is just as bad so suck it up and do it, if not live with consequences.
4 hours is a rough total time, i go to Lions Arch, lfg. Wait around about half hour, repeat lfg and the number and get nothing. I'm like ok, this sucks, why am i wasting my time for this crap and then go and do something else and actually play the game. Come back later, the same thing happens, people don't want to do lower levels in a general public setting so after i wait around and come back for around 30 mins each time it adds up close to 4 hours overall for one group which may or mayt not have someone who DC's which we can do nothing about so we need to do it again.
How about we just have the monthlies be general? Why do pvers need to do wvw, why do wvwers need to do pve? They shouldn't have too. There are now seperate pvp and regular monthly and daily requirements so this isn't asking for much. Why shouldn't that be the same for pve and wvw? Why shouldn't fractals be changed to "Dungeons" instead for people who dislike that entire concept (Dungeons good but it's not very pug friendly for instance, dc's etc).
There is no sucking up and doing it, i don't really like to do wvw but i do it because it's not that difficult to get the required kills as i said, it takes little time to get into wvw and to follow and zerg to kill random people. With the fractals, i'm dependent on other people to run the level with me, if they don't wish to run the level or simply are not there then i can't do anything about that. Regulalr dungeons? The people wouldn't be outside there if they didn't want to run the bloody thing and besides, there are no levels in regular dungeons, making it much easier to group and it's less time. Plus if someone dc's no problem, they can rejoin. It's very annoying to wait a reasonable amount of time, find a group, get about 3/4 through, someone dc's, can't finish. Total waste of time.
