My god this article could have been written about me. I am in exactly the same situation and it has completely killed the game for me. The best in slot pre-raid gear and no raid success (30+ wipes on Magmaw) has destroyed my motivation for the game :(

Why on earth are you doing the same thing 30 times over when it clearly isnt successful? Surely by wipe #5 someone should have said 'Hang on guys, something isnt working. Lets take a few minutes, check the combat logs, see who's dying and why, and what we can do to fix it."

Grak, are you serious? You must not know what's happened to the raids in groups of anything other than the... well, I was about to say "hardcore guilds", but I was a hardcore raider in Wrath, and what passes for hardcore these days is a shadow of what it was (at least on my server).Step back and assess what's stopping success? Preposterous! "Just zerg it!" is still the battlecry. And worse, after a wipe or two you get the "U retardz r fail!!1!", and someone bails. That gives another one or two the courage they lacked, and they bail as well, and the leader is back to spamming "LFM", or queuing up again. You never get a group to hang together long enough to benefit from examining the logs and making adjustments.
