Seeing it go down to 9? Im sorry but where does it say that there is not 25 man raids anymore. This will in NO way effect ppl that enjoy 25 man raiding. If you like to do 25 man raids with ppl that also like to do 25 man raids then you will find them. If ppl want to do 10 mans then they will but it will in no way reduce the enjoyment you can have. In some ways it will INCREASE it since you will now be raiding that will ONLY like to raid with 25 man ppl - since there is another way of doing it if you are looking for less ppl.Originally Posted by Cruisette
And the logic about 25 man beeing harder than 10 cause there are more ppl ? Im sorry but I did 40 man runs from early MC and there was nothing more hard about it than the 25 mans we are doing today. Having smaller groups usually means that you expect more from each person. That was defently the case when comparing 40 to 25 man raids. You could pretty much do all early 40 man content with 1 decent tank, 3-5 top healers and rest just had to make sure they didn't kill the entire raid with blowing up or stupid pulls.
If something - I think 10 mans will be more challenging and require more of each individual - than what 25 man will be.
This is a mmoRPG that needs to have a well structured core systems. It will also have to take into account that this is a game - first and foremost. Like I said before: WOW is your second life - NOT the only life. The current system is not healthy for anyone. No gaming company should promote such lifestyle.
I personally think this is a good change. It doesn't take ANYTHING away from those that like 25 man raids. Absolutly NOTHING. It only adds to what is availabe in 10 mans.
