It is only easy once you learn it (and even easier on heroic). We just spent 80 levels learning our characters, then suddenly have to learn a new set of skills. When our guild first started in Uld, we 2 shotted all the bosses we went against, but our first try against FL took us 9 tries. Part of the problem was we had mostly 200 gear, so our vehicles weren't very powerful. The other problem was we were in 10 man. in 10 man you cannot afford to lose anybody. Nor can you take the chance to catapult someone because if you don't pick them up in time (due to no practice at it yet) you lose your dps and your speed boost on that vehicle.It's the same issue as mally and occ, it's easy once you get the hang of it, but it's not like learning new fight mechanics of a boss while playing the toon you've been practicing for months at.

No it is easy. Just pure easy. If you can't figure it out having read a description of the fight (like this article) you are just a scrub, plain and simple. "We spent 80 levels learning our characters" means nothing, raiding isn't about playing your character it is about learning boss fights, how your character works in those boss fights (which is entirely different to how it works in leveling or 5-mans) is secondary.Seriously people couldn't handle doing choppers? Mark the engineer, mark the pilot, chopper driver sits there targeting the engineer and focusing the pilot, then runs in picks up and runs over to the demolisher. They don't even have to DPS while doing this for God's sake, and you can get away with not running in to dump oil as well.Sorry but if your guild got stuck on this they are going to absolutely get demolished when they come up against complex boss fights instead of the loot pinatas that are the early Ulduar bosses. You guys are too obviously stuck with the idea of "playing your characters" instead of playing as the boss fight dictates, and people will continuously die because they are "playing their characters" instead of using the fight mechanics. Tier 7 raiding exists to teach you the basics of raiding, it isn't what raiding is.
