I didnt see another post like this on MMO and i have been thinking about this for some time now. I just returned to the game recently with a bunch of friends and we are going to be raiding as a 10 man guild. Flex raid is an excellent idea IMO, and i would very much like to take advantage of this consistently with my guild mates. However, as it currently stands, you need a minimum of 10 plays to do a flex raid. As a 10 man guild, i strive to keep 10-12 raiders at most to avoid sitting people and to avoid being short. But, more often than not, we used to end up one man short. We are located on a smaller server with not many people to choose from. So this leads me to my question to you.
Do you think Blizzard should consider allowing the "Flex raid" option to have a minimum of 8 players? (lowered from 10)
I am amazed at how people are actually reacting negatively. If it should be allowed for 25mans, why not 10? Its not even the same gear as normal.. Flex was designed to allow people to raid whether they had a few people extra, or were a few people short. Mechanics start to break down? thats ridiculous. How so more than if you have 17 people instead of 25 or 8 instead of 10? "Trying to change everything to my needs"? I really dont see how that applies whatsoever, im just asking a logical question, nothing more.
