I don't want to begrudge people their five-man fun, if that's what they want to do, but it seems like some want to begrudge others their twenty-five-man fun. A large number of people enjoy the raiding aspect of the game, and I'm certainly glad the Blizzard has made it easier for people to do 25 mans (by making classes and gear more interchangeable for instance), and I'm glad that Blizzard have given people more options than big raids to occupy them after the level cap. Therefore, I think the five-man is cool, but I'll definitely be put out if raids don't come with it.

Of course there will be a 25-man involving Icecrown Citadel. The whole xpac is centered around Arthas.That being said, I think it would be amazing if you had to do something like coordinate 5 separate 5-mans, then have them all meet up for a 25-man. I know the math doesn't work that way (5 tanks? right), but you get my meaning.

Personally, I'm only off-put by the "raiders" who take the elitest mentality of "25-mans = Wow, all of you others are trash". I've played for 4+ years and have hardly raided, not for a lack of trying, it's just difficult to have a job and responsibilities outside of the game (having a night job makes it worse, because NO ONE is raiding at 8:30 in the morning) while keeping an interest in playing. The "baddies", which I suppose have to get lumped into due to a lack of raiding achievements, want the opportunity to experience some of the high-end story content, too, but until Blizz gives us nice, long, "epic" chains that we can solo (or find a small group for), the hardcore raiders--who, I'm sorry, are NOT the majority--are going to have to suck it up and allow for the fact that they are not the folks Blizz designs the game around.I mean, I had to accept that when the battlegrounds and pvp gear requirements were lowered back in the day, now it's the raiders' turn, I suppose.

It would be neat to see a sort of 5m progression for the heroic mode while the regular mode would be substantially easier, providing everyone a chance to see the content while giving other players something to work towards instead of everyone having the heroics on farm like ToC.
