I think I just came...!
Finally, I mean FINALLY I can actually raid with the 10 people I really enjoy playing and hanging around with, and who are exceptionally good at what they do.
Instead of raiding with these 10 awesome people and 15 retards whos learning curve is 5 times that of an average human being.
I guess our plans for a 10man-core-raiding-guild in Cata are gettin brighter and brighter!

To the rest of the people who hate the change:
Not a single one of you has posted anything resembling a good reason why this change is bad, and there are a mountain of reasons for why it makes sense.
Your tears sustain me. Keep it up. ;D

However, I do not believe the gear merging has anything to do with subscription fees. It has to do with gear scaling which caused so many issues on this last expansion mainly due to the new 2-raid lockout periods per instance.
I completely support these changes. It means I don't have to farm 10 mans in my off time.
I love the irony that people complain "10s can't be hardz!!!!11" and in the same breath would pine for the days of "truly hard heroic 5-mans".
I'm in the "I don't have an obnoxiously large signature" club.
They really are positioning WoW as a "pick up, put down" type MMO. Anything that required some level of continued involvement is being gradually eliminated.
As someone earlier in this thread stated... a raider who ran a 10man and a 25man side by side before now will have less to do after their 10man is done for the week, but they'll still be paying the same monthly fee.

Sorry if I'm missing something here.. But what is stopping you from doing that now?Originally Posted by Drunkenfinn

Uh... this change is deflating the gear and you are calling "loot whores" to those that are defending it? ???Originally Posted by Downwithopp
It's not the 10 man gear that will become better, it's the 25 man gear that will become worse.
I dont know what to think about this... Blizzard had to do something to balance the 10 and 25 man. 25 mans should not be worth an entire higher tier gear at same difficulty level - and then those guys could go 10 man and take the heroic gear there while those only doing 10 man were strugling big time.
I think the emphasis should now turn to making heroic versions the really hard ones - but with a twist. So much twist that it actually feels almost like a diffrent fight.
Basicly .. what is happening tho is that Blizzard is moving the game closer to focus on 5 mans and 10 mans. I think thats pretty good idea considering that the game is getting dated and less people means less stress on both server and client side.
I might actually come back and focus on 10 mans tbh =) I didn't like the form that it had in WOTLK. It just made people burn out twice as fast opening up so many instances at once.
I really think Blizzard should focus on creating top quality 5 man dungeons in Cata. And make those progression based so that with each new patch you will get at least 1 new 5 man that has gear progression and limits.
I completely agree with this statement, and that illustrates precisely why I hate this change.Originally Posted by Doombringer
I remember when, I remember I remember when I lost my mind,
There was something so perfect about that place...
To all the 10 man raiders saying about how you can now 'stay competitive' with the same loot as 25 man raids...
Why? Your loot was competitive for the challenges you faced in 10 man. Obviously this is about 10 man raiders wanting higher quality epics. If you don't run 25 mans, it simply doesn't matter whether your loot is ilvl 251, 264, or 277. Your gear is tailored to your experience.
Stop hiding behind silly excuses and own up to it. You want the same loot as the 25 man raids but can't find enough raiders. It's good to see that Blizzard saw your flood of tears and are jumping to the chance to please you, but it doesn't change anything.
To those who said this is the return of 10 man strict raiding? Not really. It's the death of the 'strict' part. Congratulations on just being a raider now.
Yes, 10man HC / 25man / 25man HC gear. :Originally Posted by Downwithopp
I personally prefer this method, and wish it would have been implemented earlier. It helps out the smaller guilds, but the larger ones who can do 25-mans wont get the shaft. I am guessing people didn't read the entire blue post, and just went with Boub's TL;DR part (which is fucking pathetic of you people). 25-mans wont become obsolete in the next expansion. You get rewarded for doing it 25-man. From what I read, say 10-man bosses drop 1 badge/emblem/whatever the next raid currency will be, the 25-man bosses will drop 2 (maybe 3) badges. As well as 25-man bosses dropping extra loot. And more money.
WotLK screwed the smaller guilds pretty hard. Especially when it came to profession patterns (luckily, ICC changed this) and upgrading tier gear. Also, with this new raid design happening, it won't screw the people with the lower-end computers (such as me). Did Marrowgar on 25-man last night for the weekly raid. I was tanking at 1-3 fps. Made sidestepping the flames interesting.
I for one am happy with these changes.
As I mentioned in a post before your flaming began, I do support these changes, for the sole reason that I can focus on 10 man raids. I never liked 25 mans, as either you have to go hardcore, and invest a lot of time into the game, which I don't have as a student, or you will be dragged down by others.Originally Posted by Downwithopp
I don't give a rat' ass about loot, when it comes to progressing. An upgrade is always nice, but calling me a loot whore?
