There isn't a point to raid reset days. There shouldn't be any specific day telling guilds that they've lost out, give up, go home. It's a fairly stupid concept that they're just now getting around to correcting. Yes, there is a point to locking you out of retrying a full clear within a certain period of time and clearly that's designed with retention and progression... but the notion that Tuesday is some magical "give up" day that a raid needs to quit on you just because 4 years ago some engineer decided Tuesday would be the maintenance day? Nope! They got rid of Tuesday Honor, why not get rid of Tuesday raids? In my guild I would LOVE to see the ability to set our raid week to start on Monday or Thursday and we could define the paramaters by which we raid. I fear the clarifications have made this a moderately useless concept for us, as we would much rather gear people through repeated attempts at bosses we can down easily, rather than be locked into a full week without more loot from the first 8 bosses of Ulduar. If the locks can't be removed and the raid week reset after a single day's worth of attempts on say a Tuesday or Wednesday so we can start our normal raid week on Thursday.. this is a pointless change that doesn't help us. Tuesday and Wednesday are lost to us for good because we can't consistently get people on those days... but we can somewhat assume that if we're on Vezzax then we might actually get people to show up for a couple more attempts on one extra day. However I think it's going to be a hard sell to get everyone to want to spend an entire raid week lockout on 2-3 bosses we haven't even downed.
