I would love a 15man raid size, would stop all the immature arguments of 25>10
It's just too much to ask people to completely change everything, though. As a poster before mentioned, people are just too invested in the current model, although there would be numerous upsides to compiling everything into one raid size, but there would also be extreme levels of outcry.
It's just not worth it for blizzard, the amount of unhappiness would far outweigh the happiness.
Death would be a welcome embrace.
But definitely not this. Setting aside all the difficulty/loot/whatever differences, simple fact is some people love the intimacy and fun of 10 mans, some people love the internal competition and challenge of 25s, and why should they both be lost? 15 man loses the intimacy that 10 man raiders love, it loses the competitiveness and epicness that 25 man raiders love. Who actually wants 15 mans, and for what reason? I honestly don't know of a single argument in favour of it, all I see is people saying it would be perfect but not explaining why. Someone please tell me, because it seems like the worst of both worlds to me :/ The point of getting rid of the 'my raid's harder than yours' is fair enough, but doesn't depend on going to 15 mans, that could be achieved by finally killing off 25s, or killing 10s somehow. Why 15?I think it would be better in the long run

I wonder what the ratio of 10 or 25 man raiders out there having fun playing the game and raiding with friends are to the number of people unhappy about their raid team/size.
I have personally raided 40/25/10s and have yet to really care as long as I'm having fun in any of those tiers. The only time I wasn't happy was when I had to do Ulduar on 25 man and then again on 10 man each week for gear. Once everything was relatively on farm is wasn't so bad, but going from a night of wiping on heroic 25m mimiron to wipes on 10m Yogg sucked. I think I was raiding 5 days a week back then.
