Most of us raiding folks would prefer to care less, and not worry about how your play style is being rewarded. However, a lot of people that have a full set of pvp epics become upset when raiding guilds won't take them to raids. They just don't understand that pvp and pve have different gear requirements, and a require a different mindset. They are adamant that they have full epics so they are good enough to raid, when it just isn't the case.A while ago, I joined a new progressive raiding guild on my server. They were running regular Kara key frag runs. After about 2 weeks of that, everyone was keyed. We had 3 Kara groups running weekly, and it wasn't long before all 3 groups had Kara on farm status. We got people geared up and we started running Gruul and Mag. So we were running 3 Kara groups, Gruul and Mag, weekly. We spent a good deal of time on this. Then ZA came out, and the 3 Kara groups run ZA weekly as well. We recently moved in to SSC, after months and months time invested, gearing up, and learning how to raid with our raid group. I'm not saying this to brag, but to leave you with a sense of how much time, effort, and learning was involved.Do you think we will take a scrubby pvp'er to SSC with us? Hell no. Do you think scrubby pvp'ers have tried to smear us on the forums and in the trade channel for not taking them? Hell yes. It makes this argument rather personal, imo. I spent a large ammount of time and gold to gain the raiding experience and gear I have now. Most pvp'ers haven't done any pve except to level their character. Thinking that they could go from total immersion in pvp to successfully raiding is just plain wrong.
