While I like raiding in a 25 group, I don't like the difficulty of assembling 25 raiders. It's very important to understand that they are two very different things. Once I have 25 people together and raiding it's awesome.In WotLK, during Hardmode ToC, my 3 year old guild broke up. Why did it break up? It wasn't because we weren't having fun; everyone in our guild loved 25 mans. We didn't break up because we preferred 10 mans, or because of drama.We broke up because a few people moved on due to changes in their life; not an unusual thing. But unlike in Burning Crusade, now we were unable to refill their spots in the raid. After several months of pugging 3-5 people to fill our raid spots, it just sorta crushed us. We lost our will to keep raiding, because now we had to spend an hour or two before every raid trying to pug people, often having the pugged people leave after a single wipe. When you pug a fair portion of your raid, it's so hard to get keep bosses on farm.If my guild hadn't broke up, and everyone in my guild who loves 25 mans continues to raid 25s, how would we recruit? Right now, I guess about 80% of raiders are in 25 mans? Forming a 25 guild, completing recruitment is a nightmare right now. It's not too bad in 10 mans, cause you only need 10 people. But what happens when 25 raiders drops to let's say 20% of raiders in Cataclysm?How could we possibly hope to form whole raid groups?This is why I'm scared of the changes.
