oh, the 40-man raids... i wish there was still one raid - let it be the endgame raid, even - which required 40 players. that epic scale is brilliant.of course, managing 40 people is nightmarish... but that's part of the challenge, right?/ignore Nick S

I agree, at least 1 40-man would be nice. Probably not a true endgame one though just so more people could get in.

Not me. I do not long for the days of 40 man raids one bit.Trying to get 40 people all walking in the same direction for MC/BWL/AQ was like herding cats. The lead time required for getting things rolling was pretty crazy. I'm sure a few guilds had it down to a science, but those were rare.There also seemed to be quite a few squatters in the 40 mans. These people would tag along and expect the remainder of the group to carry their weight for them. It's a lot harder to spot this kind of thing in a big 40 man as opposed to even a 25 man.Finally, getting your hands on loot was a lot harder. Even with a good DKP system. There are simply more people rolling for a single piece of loot. I remember spending a couple of months between drops pre BC.10 man raids are great and the 25 mans feel about right. I think the best times, though, were the 20 man ZG and AQ runs back in the day.
