If the rez thing doesn't work to get people rezzing, at least it's not hard and shouldn't be much cause for complaint. It takes a few minutes tops in any starting area.
The dodge thing is basic to the combat of this game. If you haven't learned to dodge by now, it shouldn't take that long to do so. This is NOT twitch mechanics. There are several good ways and places to learn to dodge. The easiest is to go to a starting zone and aggro a deer. Then dodge when it rears up on its hind legs. That said, it took me literally 3 minutes to dodge 15 times. Should NOT be a cause for complaint. If you really have a problem with the dodge one, you're in the vast minority.
The combo one can certainly cause people a lot of concern, until you realize that most professions can combo themselves, and that you can get this with like zero level creatures. Sure it might take you out of your comfort zone. You might have to learn how to do something with your profession for a week or two until you get it down. That's why it's called a game.
The thing people really seem to be forgetting is that in future patches, there'll be like 7 dailies and Anet will ask you to choose five of them, so you can skip a couple that you don't like.
As always, it's the now reaction. MMOs take time to develop and change all the time. This kind of thing is relatively minor and relatively temporary.
Just words. The whole idea for the dailies is actually to help people with less time on their hands get stuff pretty quickly. It gives them something to do in a short time that gives them a currency they can use. It gets them karma, XP and now laurals, so they can catch up a bit.
For those of us who play a LOT, the daily is less necessary than for those who play rarely, or have a lot less time. Calling something stupid doesn't make it so. They have to figure out stuff that's not to hard, that everyone can basically understand, and have seven days worth.
I think people throw words like stupid around far too easily.
I think its stupid how even though I am a warrior with maxed out stats, I have superior rune of soldier in all my armor, I have 30 trait points in tactics, I use all my accessories for vitality, and some Mesmer can have the same amount of vitality as I do (about 30k). That's bullshit.
It's only been two days of the new daily achievements and I can't say that I am wow'd by the new format. Healing and dodging were kind of lame and killing veterns was a pain (mostly trying to find them). I guess only time will tell if the laurels are worth the effort. Hopefully Anet will improve Karma exotic armor so you can get something useful with the jugs of Karma (the current stats leave a lot to be desired).
