Second of all, US top 50? are you kidding me? go check eu+us top 50 and check the number of rets vs the number of other dps specs.
Third of all, if you actually have rets on the top of your meters this tier your guild dpsers isn't up to par. Only fights where ret should be "high" on dps is Jin'Rokh and maybe Horridon if we're allowed to sit on the boss to abuse the stacking damage taken debuff on him.
Ret, while not being totally unviable, is a drag to any guild who's gonna push ranks this tier. That's not jibberish/QQ, that's a fact. When progress is over in a month or so we'll get help from blizzard, probablly a Divine Storm buff (although I do see GCs point with ret's being quite potent with clumped aoe) the thing is that rets is "meh" in everything we do and top guilds would rather take someone who's awesome at ONE thing in order to push a boss kill.
