"Hard to put together? Not. We had no trouble at all fielding 40 man raids 6 or 7 nights a week."6 or 7 nights a week!!!! Seriously, do you do ANYTHING besides play wow??! I used to raid MC, BWL, Ony back in the day, and even in a guild with over a hundred 60's, it was STILL hard to fill a 40 man raid consistently and there were always delays. Always.Honestly one of the things I hated most about the 40 mans weren't the 40 man part of it... it was the politics; the separation between the guys like you that do nothing BUT play wow (and have an elitist attitude because you think you're so special) and the people who were either casual or maybe somewhere in the gray area between causal and hardcore like me. Just because you don't waste your entire life in the game doesn't mean you're a bad player. You could play all the time and still suck."Over 70% of my server participated in 40 man content and saw the early 40 man raids. Simple math completely dispells the notion that a tiny fraction of the server population were raiders. The large majority of players raided."Over 90% of all statistics are made up on the spot. That's not simple math, that's pulling a number out of your butt."The difference was we made an effort... lazy casuals who want everything for nothing have destroyed what was once a glorious and amazing facet of Wow."The only reason most people made the effort was because that was all you had. Before ZG and AQ20, your only option after all the 5 man content were the 40 mans. I'm guessing a large amount of the made up number of people raiding on your server were probably people who didn't really wanna be there but that was the only option for them if they wanted to continue seeing upgrades. Raid a 40 man or quit playing WoW. Those were your options.
