Why is that the case? Just curious.

i suggest checking this site http://www.wowprogress.com/ before saying anything... there are guilds on the US servers that have done it. Blood Legion?

eitherway. majority of the "better" guilds in the US have for a long time been 25man. EU is more of a 10 area (dont ask me why this is)
also this tier seems a bit easier, atleast for some fights- on 25man. (no not stating x setting is harder than y, simply saying that some fights has their advantages and disadvantages in both settings)
Prolly cause Garrosh is harder in 10 than in 25, at least that's always been my experience when doing both, though I haven't attempted it on heroic yet. But I imagine unless some more of the mechanics were scaled up to match the difficulty of 10man in heroic mode, it would be the same case.
Also the argument could be made that because this community is kind of dumb and for whatever reason looks down on 10m raiding and thinks 25m raiding is the end all, be all, that most raiders who actually try for such things are all 25m raiders and not 10m raiders.
My guild should be doing garrosh attempts on heroic before too much longer, but not quite there yet.
I like ponies and I really don't care what you have to say about that.

I've often wondered but never posted about it, are the hardcore US players actually worse than hardcore EU players? Or are there other factors that may influence EU often having much more success in progression?
The reason I bring this up is because not only are there only EU kills of 10 heroic garrosh (as far as western progression goes), but EU has more kills in every other boss as well. This could just be a population thing, I'm not sure what the numbers of EU players vs. US players are, and by extension of that not sure what the population of hardcore willing EU players vs. hardcore willing US players are. If it isn't population (Again, I haven't looked at that data), could it possibly be something like better internet services in Europe? Or maybe something else?
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me!
Oh I wasn't trying to start a debate between whether EU was better than US or whatever so sorry if that's what my question sounded like. I was more curious if there was just something different about the fight on the US side, it seems weird that some of the top US guilds haven't done it yet after being on it for 2 weeks now, and they did fine on all the bosses before.
25man definitely seems easier this tier than 10man, yeah, but that's not the reason, otherwise there would be very few EU guilds too. As said before, I think US players go for 25man more than EU players. (Even though only 6/20 14/14 25man guilds are US)
US 10 man HC is the real hardcore difficulty.
That aside I would imagine that WoW has a more negative stigma in the US? Educated guess.
Irradiated For example. Big ups to them!
they can get paid vacation and whenever they want to and "We Muricans" can't
if people in the US need 8-9 raiding hours it doesn't mean that's the same with everybody, in EU i recall the rank #1 on my server during 4.2 got realm first and top 50 EU with 3-4 hour raiding 4-5 days a week and 2 of them have full time jobs and kids, all due respect but you don't have to be a no-lifer to be hardcore it's all about teamwork and skills
10 man Garrosh Heroic is no joke.
Only 1 b rez :P
