Tempus, I really don't think you're reading what we are saying. We get that developers would like for everyone to see what they work oh so hard on, and we get that the more casual people would like to see the raids somewhere besides a youtube video. However, we need to strike a good balance between impossibly hard content and insta-epics. Hard modes aren't as fun as new, different hard bosses for serious players. You can yell and scream that they should be all you want, it doesn't change the fact that they just aren't. Maybe that makes us elitist, maybe that makes us jerks. Either way, we aren't having the fun we used to have, and isn't that what the game is all about (as you keep insisting)? If so, this fun needs to be preserved. That is why the original 10/25 split was perfect. People who want to see the content, but don't have all the time needed in the past, can run an easier 10 man version. This would have somewhat sub-par loot and a lower tier set (7 vs. 7.5), but everyone who wants to see the content and experience the fights can. Meanwhile, the 25 man raids are deliberately tuned to be much harder than the 10 man versions. The loot would be much better, but the difficulty would be that much higher. There would just be one mode; not various tiers of difficulty. This solves the problem perfectly. If you see a person in iLvl 239 gear, or that different shade of tier gear, you know they are 'hardcore', and more importantly, that hardcore player knows you know he is hardcore. They get the recognition on the competitive progression, and they get the unadulterated fun that comes with a traditional, difficult raid, while everyone else gets to see the content that they didn't get to see before. Everyone wins!
