part of me wants to QQ.... then I start thinking of the PUGs I've been in that can't handle the transition, and that part shuts up

All it takes is a hunter to perform not even a supremely well-timed couple of Misdirected Shots on Marrowgar at the end of the Bone Storm and, yay, a raid is saved. Any hunters, PuGged or otherwise, that can't handle that should be told, even helped, to delete their character and roll something a little more suited to their sheer lack of ability. (*coughpaladincough*) :pSpeaking as a hunter, I'm going to miss that little sliver of responsibilty there. Stupid huntards, and stupid PuGs. :(

Personally, I liked having Marrowgar as a very basic metric of how fail the PUG was. If the DPS couldn't handle watching their timers and stopping a second or two before the end of the WW phase, they weren't going to be able to get through the later bosses, either. Better to find that out on the first boss than to get saved to a raid ID that you'd be lucky to get through Saurfang with, let alone any of the later wings.

I personally am happy with the important part of this. If they had just delayed the attack it would have been fine, but I can't tell you how many times I have grabbed the boss and watched the clothie he just finished bomestorming get saber lashed. Seriously, there was maybe a one second delay from the end of bomestorm to the first lash. Now I can eat a single lash solo, but the Mage who didn't know which direction to go yet as I rotate him didn't deserve to act like a tank and eat that.Making him delay would have been good enough the threat dump is just to let those PUGs trying to get their 5 badges a break.
