I think a 40 man raid would be a blast if you have the right people. I joined in right after BC launched (inspired by the South Park episode to join :D) and wasn't raid-ready until a month before WotLK came out. So I missed the big raids like that. I never got to experience it and I truly wish I had.I also truly wish elitist douches from Vanilla would shut the hell up already. "Dur remember when epics were epic?" No, I don't and I don't care. I'm glad more than just those with endless hours to devote to a game are able to raid with me. "More like Welfare epics". Shut up. Yes, epics are rediculously easy to acquire as a fresh 80 (I geared up in full epics in like 3 days), but getting high end epics isn't that easy. I've hit a brick wall with gearing my DK because I can't find a suitable raid group and I've only got 30-some frost emblems and I've grabbed all the triumph gear. tl;drI hate Vanilla elitist douchebags and wish I could experience a 40-man raid.

Eh, that statement is contradictory at best though.Those "Vanilla Elitist Dbags" are used to having to deal with just a few pieces of gear dropping from a 40man boss. That made the gear more epic because if you won it, you WON it, which is where the DKP system came to play. DKP was used to show someone's dedication to the guild and raids, because you needed those 39 others.Now that we have 10/25mans, that gear seems much easier to get, because there is less competition, which is why DKP is no longer favored. With the drastically lowered number requirement, it simply doesn't provide the kind of incentive it used to.Shift in gameplay led to a divide in two different schools of raiding. I wouldn't call the general group of them Dbags though, because part of the experience in 40man raiding WAS winning that epic that dropped, and when people saw you with it, it was part awesome gear, and part status symbol.Now all those epics are just fluff to fill up your gearscore, which as we all know, is the best way to gauge player skill. So I can understand where they are coming from.

I see where they're coming from, but most of them act like they're the only ones worthy of playing the game.

Yeah, true.I tend to see them more as those cranky vietnam vets than Dbags though... =PThough I'll give more respect to the vets than them. Much more.
