    Sadly this just is not the way to go, its still just rng based. To make ppl go back to 25 they would have to make those Thunderforged items drop only from 25.

    And yes to all the nay sayers, 10 man is easyer than 25, with a few exeptions like Hagara and, and, and ?

    If item level upgrades for gear was still in the game at this point, they could've just made 25-man drop items that were upgraded 1/2 already.
    That way the DO get higher ilvl drops, but in the end 10-man raiders will still be able to upgrade it to the same ilvl.

    This is allright but presented as a new idea when really it's a repurposed version of the old systems. Thunderforged is a replacement for the item upgrades system which replaces a daily grind with RNG.

    For 25 to get popular again they have to a little more.

    I know we haven't seen any actual numbers yet. However this does nothing for 25 man as is and does nothing extra for 10 man but that's all susceptible to change. If we only get one drop in 25 man and caster/healers want it let's say that's 10-12 people, now flip it for 10 man 1 bit of thunderforged for their casters and healer that's 4-6 people. No one is actually better off or worse.
    The way they have worded it is as if 25 man are getting a massively great deal out of it compared to 10 man. When it comes down to it, it's the same. Nothing more then each other.

    Another good fix would to let 25 man raids drop items that are upgraded half way, this would give incentive to rebuild to 25s and its TOTALLY an option since the 10 man player base can still GET these items for about 750 valor points more.
    PPL are not interested in 25 for many reasons. Things like Frames per second change depending on how many players are taking part. And not all WOW players have best PCs around.

    I've played both 10 and 25 man. Maintaining a solid 10 man team is no easier than 25 mans . Just because 25 mans can split up into 2X10 mans does not tell you the fact about all the 10 mans raids that never get started because 1 person is missing - or not the right classes or the roles are logged on.

    Personally I dont bother doing either now. BLizzard has failed on so many levels with this expansion and these ilvl changes is just one extra feature that makes it even less interesting.

    One more thing to add:

    I've heard you like RNG. So we'll put more RNG to your RNG.

    It already takes much more skill for a 10M to be world first because of the raid comp restrictions and less gear drops, so now it will be even more sweet when Paragon still destroys these 25's again
    "in my highly blinkered view 10m is clearly better...well... just BECAUSE, ok?!"

    So 10m is harder because you have to get 10 skilled people together with the right composition?... ok... so when it requires you get 2.5x the number of skilled people together then it suddenly gets much easier of course. I don't see the logic.

    Fine, if it's complementary with the item upgrades back in 5.3. And it sort of reeks of that. It seems that they are closing all those loopholes where players could relax from the game without any disadvantage, and not only hardcore raiders have the following mindset:

    No upgrades anymore don't do it.

    It gave casual raid groups the opportunity to extend lookouts without having discussions and finally tackle the final boss or some heroic mode they did not get to.
    It allowed people to ignore valor cap for weeks on end, because those points where only good to sell boe's with plummeting prices.

    MoP overall forces people to think where to invest time, especially if said time is limited. If you feel like having to do everything, say hello to burnout. Not only reputation moves from dailies to raids with 5.3

    Its a carrot on a stick method. Leads to more issues than it solves long term cause the lucky will progress based on TOTAL luck rather than abilites.

    plus your solution would have no impact / benefit since raider would just designate as leader the person that needs loot the most, nullying your brilliant theory that 25 man is only harder for 4 people in the raid.
    You really think it is harder to be a joe blow mage dps with no leadership responsibilities in a 25M than it is to be a raid leader of a 10M? The actual difficulties of 10M and 25M can be argued back and forth, but the devs have stated many times, and anyone can see that the REAL difficulty is with ORGANIZING of 25ms.. not with the actual encounters.

    Of course, the main tank will probably always be marked as a leader, but after that raids are not going to simply reward their lowest ilvl player extra rolls. One or two of the designations might be fudged, but the real leaders will get the designations most of the time... and if they don´t, it will be their choice NOT to get them since they are the leader. The raid leader can say. Ok, the two tanks get the designation, John gets the designation because he coordinated a lot this week etc.

    Separated achievements would be better... Gear is not that big deal.

    I don't think this is going to work at all. Sure, Thunderforged pieces -might- make farming bosses a little more exciting, but not by much I imagine. Farming a boss is still farming a boss, it's boring.

    And the 25 player bonus is pretty much laughable. After it's all said and done, 25 players will end up with 2-3 item levels higher gear. That's nothing to get excited about either.

    this could be exciting if it will include weapons as well.

    If 10 mans were easier than we would have 10 man LFR... You can hide bad or mediocer players in 25 man team. You can not in 10 mans while progressing. Fact.

With this implementation it is VERY VERY VERY unlikely for even ONE person (minus maybe a tank) to ever reach a full BiS set now. Under the assumption a full BiS set would be your best itemized pieces thunderforged. I feel top guilds are going to feel it necessary to raid every single week (probably multiple 25 mans) from the start of one tier until the start of the other because there is ALWAYS going to be that possible thunderforged upgrade for them off a boss. Which could result in a MASSIVE burn out of top tier players because they don't get the break in between tiers that they are used to.
    Getting full BIS will be nearly impossible now, as it was in 5.0 with item upgrades.

    I say it will require a change of mind, in a sense that you don't really NEED to be full full Elite, you may stop at full heroic.
