your never going to get the HC players to admit anything is wrong. life is peachy.. cause thier guild can do HC so can yours.. what they fail to mention is that the top 5 guilds on the server.. after 8 years.. has the best players.. and its unlikly to change anytime soon. overtime players with the time and ability will gravitate to the best guilds. im sure almost everyone here can name at least 2 or 3 of the top guilds on their server.. tell me something.. why dont they have problems recruiting?? heres a clue.. thier the best on their server... (getting quality players is a different issue).
they have long gotten rid of the clueless and incapable. Some of us though. perfer to play with family and friends.. as such the majority of guilds below your HC guilds are made of of these types of players.. sure 2-3 (sometimes more) might be capable of HC play.. but they would have to leave behind everyone they know because their are a few in the guild who simply cant play at the level they can.. and these types of guilds make up WAY more of the raiding base than all the HC guilds combined. so if the game is being taylored for the 2-3 guilds at the top.. it sends a message to the rest .. so sorry.. so sad.. but look at all the shiney gear they are wearing and be happy... for them...
I have always been a fan of HC guilds should get MORE loot.. (with unique HC bosses dropping unique gear) not better quality.. i was of the same opinion back when Wrath had 10/25.
that being said.. i thought the death buff that you recieved in LFR would have been a great raid saver back in cataclysm and normal modes. i still think it should be used with maybe a timer per boss that gives extra loot so if you sit there and go through your 5th wipe.. well.. you loose the extra loot (kind of a get better thing)
