So many people still acting like this will happen in the US and EU.
Today we find a lot higher demands on the computer needed

Retired... but for how long? WAS DRAGGED TO THE LEGION HYPETRAIN!!!
My old Dell XPS M1530 cost me 800 back then and still runs WoW very reasonable (just keep shadows and water quality on low and the rest medium to high). 25 mans are just stretching it, although for some reason in MoP it seems actually slightly to perform better compared to Cata in 25-man raids. The point of transition for it being unplayable is the moment it begins to stutter and to interfere with my ability to react properly. This occurred with me with my now very old P4 gaming desktop in ICC. The laptop just outperformed despite it having a slightly worse GPU, but a 1000 times better CPU. GPU reqs you can tune, CPU ones a lot less so I experienced (not just in WoW).
OP should reeeeally change the topic name. There's nothing saying for certain that those change will come to EU/US. Myself, I don't really believe it, at least the "higher ilvl" part. It would require rebalancing 25s, which would be a lot of work that could (and should) be spent on developing new content instead.
As for separate lockouts - quite possible. I mean, one of 5.1 changes is "The Statistics page now tracks and displays 10-player and 25-player raid boss kills separately." - so it might have been the first step.
I wouldn't mind it, myself. Might help out with recruitment, it's been such a pain since Cataclysm. And there's always the "but no one is forcing you to do X format" that's being used all that time. Funny how suddenly it doesn't apply.

People are crying they don't have time to do dailies, yet they would reintroduce system that makes them raid two raids in one lockout? Don't think so.
Koreans spend much more time on their computers so it won't affect them that much, but I can't see it working fine in US/EU. Just as double lockout was introduced there long time ago yet it's still not introduced in US/EU.

That would be wonderful change. This game might become interesting again and I might actually start to raid again.
doesn't matter what blizzard does, people will qq and others will cheer!
I'd love to see this come to the US.
Very strange move, totally contradicts the "10=25 in difficulty" they try to sell since Cataclysm.
No no no no no no
This would be horrible, First off they're shafting all 10-man guilds, and all because 25-man raiders cry because "No one wants to play 25mans anymore!!!!! (((((" Well guess what sweetcheeks, people play what they prefer, now if the majority of the WoW community thinks 25-man raids sucks, well tough luck.
And here comes blizzard and wants to FORCE you back into 25man? jesus.
There's already sooo many things you need to do in-game, farm cash for raids, do LFR, do Dailies, and then you raid. add in another raid lockout and people will run out of time. It will be even more so "I have to do this" rather than "Oh, I'd like to do this!"
And before any wiseass comes along saying "You're not forced to do anything!" You are, if you want to maximize your performance you will have to do everything you can to get the best gear.
So please, flush this stupid idea down the drain.
