At first I was a little disappointed until I read this blue post:"If a dungeon group falls apart after 1-2 bosses, it's not nearly as big of a deal as if a raid group falls apart after 5 bosses of Ulduar."Now I agree 100%.

I can understand that a 5man heroic falling apart is better than a 25man raid. But what does it really matter if the failed raid is comprised completely of people from your server or not? It's still a failed raid that your saved too.

Hmm, I guess you are right. I've played a raid PUG of Ulduar and group fell apart after 2 bosses.

An easy solution for that it would seem is two fold...1. LFR Tool gearchecks players before letting them sign up for a raid, same as LFG Tool will do.2. The LFR could additionally require that the person has the achievement for having completed the raid somewhere on their account. This would indicate that they know the fight, even if they are on an alt instead of their main.

@Karilyn"The LFR could additionally require that the person has the achievement for having completed the raid somewhere on their account."You want it to be only possible to join a raid if you've already completed that raid? Wouldn't that make it.... difficult to progress with pugs? When would you get a chance to get the achievement at all, presuming you're guild won't do it (hence using the LFR) and you don't have 25 close friends all of the right class free on the same day?

Guilds are for progression raids.Pugs are for farming raids.A pug is not a place to teach 24 people how to do all the fights, and spend hours wiping over and over again until everyone understands the fight mechanics.
