    MoP big feature speculation: they're going to remove 25-man raiding

    I just got thinking because blizzard said they were going to do a big new feature in MoP, like they did in transmog and dungeon finder.

    I think the big new feature is that they will remove 25-man raiding, and make it so that there are 5-man raids or even 1-man raids.

    this makes sense because 25-man isn't popular anymore.
    This will be even easier to balance and a lot more fun because it will be a tighter group.

    Personally I would like to see this change because 25-man raiding is too hard to organize and doesn't look good on my graphics card.


    who else think 5-man (or even 1-man) raiding instead of 25-man would be good?

    They're not removing 25 man raiding. They've made it clear they're not. Why in the world would they do that but add in thunderforged gear in 5.2 for 25man raiding?

    in 5.3 they might remove it, or the thunderforge thing could be trick so they can make the announcement even a bigger suprise about removing 25-man from the game

    Let me guess, your friend who works at Blizzard told you.

    That seems very unlikely, considering the way they have been defending the format lately.

    You're seriously grasping at straws here

    That's removing a feature, not adding one.

    Seriously?

    Also, removing an option is not exactly 'adding' a feature.

    I highly doubt that they would remove it, there's just no point. There is far too much risk in alienating more of their subscriber base.

    they alienated a load when they got rid of 40-man raiding, so it wouldn't be a big suprise?

    They should reintroduce 40-man raiding, that was one of the most epic features in any game ever. Sad they removed it.

    but they would add 1-man raiding or 5-man raiding, which would be the new exiting feature

    I would not be surprised, should thunderforged fail, that they make this move in 6.0.

    Make 10-man raiding the new 25-man, bump 5-man up to being raid group size, and turn scenarios into the leveling content.

    Not gonna happen unless supporting 25 mans becomes pointless. Which it isn't at the moment, and despite the cries and hyperboles read on forums, aren't as dead as you might think. Not as popular as before, but not close to being worthy of removal... yet.

    Besides, even if they did decide to remove 25 mans, it wouldn't be as a MoP "feature". It'd be for the next expansion.

    So, they add a feature in 5.2 to reward 25 man teams, then in a following patch they eliminate it all together....just to trick us into thinking they're going to keep 25 mans around, so they can pull the rug out from under us? Just wow.
