It doesn't matter how easy or hard they make the encounters the vast majority of people who never saw Hyjal, BT, and Sunwell didn't make it there based on difficulty but because the "casual" way of playing doesn't coincide with the way you raid.I/E you need 25 people X amount of healers and tanks and X amount of DPS to succeed, and getting these people to show up consistently.As far as anyone who has raided T6-6.5 content to even 7.5 content knows that just a few nights of attempts can make a HUGE difference in how encounters go. You can run in one night and slam your face against a boss all night long, and then come in the next night and it just clicks even w/o gear upgrades. That's just how raiding goes, and many of the ten mans can be just as difficult as 25 mans because there is LESS room for error even though the scale of the fights are considerably lower.So unless you have a casual guild with enough members to consistently fill your roles then you will still be met with failure. And getting fights down means consistently have the same people who know the fights and understand them during the learning process. I know near the end of BC pre 3.0 our difficulty were members getting burned out on Sunwell and then having to replace those members with undergeared members and re-teaching/gearing them for fights. And we were a relatively hardcore guild. 90% of raiding is still attendance, and the majority of casual/hardcore differences is with time spent in game.
