IMO it is really interesting to see if Empress will be killed first by the best 25M EU guild, the best 25M US guild, or the best 10M guild.
However, all this blind favoritism/hatred for 10m/25m is so pathetic. Seriously, there is like one 10 man guild working on heroic amber shaper (Paragon), and Blizzard hotfixes the boss.... and you assume that clearly it is cause the boss was too hard, and had nothing to do with the boss being broken......... This isn't your average guild wiping on it and saying it is incredibly difficult on 10 man, it is the best 10 man guild in the world.
People are so terrified that if somehow Paragon clears 10 man HoF first then their entire world shatters....... if Paragon clears 10 man first doesnt that just prove that HoF was easier on 10 man, and that 25 man truly is the harder difficulty? If you have 10 amazing players who can kill a boss in 5 hours, and you have 25 equally amazing players who need 10 hours on the same boss, one can assume that in general the 25 man difficulty was harder.... and isn't that what all 25 man guilds want?
God, you come to the forums only to see 25 man guilds whine about how they are the only true difficulty in this game, and then when their difficulty is actually harder than 10 man they whine about it...... don't you want 10 man to be easier so that it proves that 25 man is the true difficulty??????????
FFS, either way Paragon/Method/BL/Vodka/(insert top world guild here) are amazing guilds with amazing players and dedication, and all you care about is yourself and making sure you play the game the way on the "correct" or "better" difficulty (whatever that even means).
Just accept the fact that it is impossible to balance both 10 and 25 man, and that some fights will be harder than others, and that Blizzard does a piss poor job of actually testing these fights themselves and some bosses will be extremely buggy on certain difficulties and will need FIXES (not nerfs) before they are killed, and other fights will need NERFS (Vizier) before it is killed.
