I agree, casual is 25 player raids. When I am 20% of the dps, the pressure is on.

LOL, so now 25 man Raids are 'casual' and 10 man Raids are the 'real dea ?'Proves the old saying "give a scrub a pancake..."

Indeed, in 10-man, you screw, you screw the whole raid. Every player is a key player in a ten man. In 25, there's way more confusion, more voices on vent, more chances to screw it up. I find 10-man way more fun and the camaraderie is awesome within my guild.

Disagree. 20% of the dps? That's only if you are that good! The other dps could be carrying you through 10 mans. It's the same in 25s. Both 25s and 10s have fights that are harder compared to the other. And I agree with the last statement made by the author. Most people either don't want to put in the time or do not have the time to organize 25 man raid groups. 25s take more time and effort. And if you think 25 man organization is hard try going back to Vanilla WoW's 40 man raids. 10 mans causes more headaches to me than a 25 ever will. Normally with a 25 man raiding guild they have a roster of at least 35 raiders. This leaves more room for people that need a night off etc. If you feel like because you miss one night you are completely letting down your guild then I think you need to take a step back and ask why you are raiding. Any reasonable, responsible guild should understand that real life is more important than anything going on in WoW. I always just post to inform my officers "hey I've gotta work tonight." "going out with the family" etc.And to the posters crying people play too much when they play five or more nights. Many of those guilds start out hardcore with 4-5 nights a week fomo 7-3am and then once content is on farm a few weeks later they are at 3 nights a week at the most. Smashing through the content has its advantages and disadvantages. If I had the kind of time those raiders had I would definitely have looked into a much more hardcore raiding guild when Wrath was released. Progression is exciting and it adds to the competition found in WoW.
