I think 10 man raids will be dominant, and I think we're seeing this now with Icecrown Citadel.As a person with not a lot of time to raid and as a member of a small guild, my raiding options are either pugging ICC 25 for a shot at better loot, pugging ICC 10, or raiding ICC 10 with my guild. Ideally, I would raid ICC 10 with my guild, and if I have time, pug ICC 25.Since we can't do this anymore, though, my ICC lockouts are going to the guild ICC 10, and this is why: even if players are not necessarily the best, having a consistent team that progresses together will get farther into an instance than a pug of people who have not progressed. Sure, GDKP raids will blow them out of the water, but those folks have by and large finished progression. Folks who are learning the content de novo will benefit more from dedication and accountability on the part of their fellow raiders, and it's much easier to organize a group of 10 for a regular effort.I suppose it's different if you have the time to devote multiple entire evenings to raiding. My life, alas(?), does not permit for this.
