There are many other ways of making the content more difficult other than just requiring more bodies and scaling the damage. As a few people have already said bigger doesn't not mean better, nor harder.For those that fought Kael'thas and Lady Vashj before 3.0 you'll remember those fights ( for quite a while ) were a challenge until you had 25 people that could do it right. Archie was 1 person away from a wipe.I raided back in Vanilla WoW, all through BC and now in WotLK. I much prefer the 25 man thing to the 40 man. There is more accountability and less carrying of people. Everyone needs to do their part and not just disappear in the numbers.This first content is/was easy. No doubt. That doesn't mean that the coming content won't be considerably more difficult. Remember Kara when BC raiding first started? It was retardedly difficult b/c of stupid 360 cleaves, people were using a level 30 trinket to make Moroes somewhat doable ( Luffa before it was changed ), the respawn rate on trash was like 15 minutes, Nightbane fights went on for 9+ minutes ( remember when the skeletons were immune to magic to encourage you to bring rogues and hunters? LOL ). Blizz made this content easy. On purpose. How many people saw all of Nax in Vanilla WoW? Not many, hell that's a HUGE understatement and if we believe the numbers that are thrown out there by a few sources as little as 1% of the WoW population saw all of Naxx at 60 in all of it's glory. They don't want to repeat that. They don't want initial content to be very difficult, they want it to be easily accessible so that people that are just starting to play, can find out what raiding is all about. The next few patches should really ramp up the difficulty with new content.
