QFT. This whole comment hits the nail right on the head. I'm all for treating other people with respect and not wanting to waste other peoples' time, but this commentator is totally right in that the culture surrounding raids is entirely the byproduct of a marketing / product design strategy that is increasingly showing itself to be obsolete. There are other ways of eating up my free time and getting me to shell out $15 a month than forcing me to (a) raid with 24 other people or (b) make a dozen alts. Blizzard seems to be getting that and I hope they continue with the trend. That a whole culture has grown up around the former, and which justifies itself with arguments about "respecting your team" and "committing to others," is just plain silly.
