Partially agree with the above however lets just take a full yimpartial view of this.By your own admission organising 25 man raiding is more complex than organising 10 man raiding (15 less people) now that in itself requires more effort! Due to this the gear in 25 mans will be slightly better than the gear in 10 man versions.IF blizzard did bring in the same gear for both types then i do think we would see a rapid decline in the amount of 25 man guilds and a large increase in 10 manning guilds. There are those who would prefer the 'epicness' of fighting with 24 other players but simply organising 15 more people for the sake of 'doing it with more' is not really justification in an of itself.In summary, 25 man raiding gear being slightly better is a 'carrot on a stick' to give people more incentive to run 25 mans, in my opinion this is fine.What i think alot of people seem to suggest is that 10 man raiders and 25 man raiders are seperate people, personally we've set up a guild from being a core of hardcore 10 man raiders (dedicated people) and we've expanded to allow us to incorporate 25 man raids. When WotLK first starts up we'll no doubt begin with 10 man Naxx, learn alot of the encounters then by the time we're half way through and some new people are gearing we'll start progressing the 25 mans once to twice a week while running the 10 mans 3-4 times a week!I am really happy Blizz have understood that the 10 man raiding model has opened up raiding and they've agreed to provide a parrallel line f progression for 10 man raids also.In summary:25 man raiding is harder ot organise than 10 man raiding so the gear is slightly better.I am looking forward to the intamcy of a 10 man progression line while at the same time looking forward to organising some nice 25 member raids into the larger versions.(And on the ultimate plus side it would be so much nicer to go into a 25 man raid with everyone already having 'done' anotehr version of the boss previously!)
