Everything announced here is aimed at casuals. Less lockouts means less time necessary raiding. Same gear from 10m raids with less people means less time raiding and less time getting a group together. Smaller raid instances means less time raiding. It all screams casual.Originally Posted by Vengeblade
And you honestly believe that they're going to tune 10man up? Really? They're gonna tune 10man up slightly and bring 25man down to match. How else will they make things "equal in difficulty" if not by eliminating everthing that makes having 25 players a complication? That's like half the difficulty of 25man raids, gone.
And yes God damn it, its for the ePeen. Heroic raiding is a huge pain in the ass. I wouldn't do it without some kind of positive reinforcement and my positive reinforcement is exclusivity, as it's been since Vanilla.
