"So what do you do when one of your favorite parts of the game becomes off-limits?"Might I suggest starting your own raid? 10man Raids are increasingly simple to manage and coordinate. I regularly see multiple individuals with this same complaint... the answer is quite simple really, and much more productive than waiting around for an opening in an existing raid.There really is no reason for anyone to sit around complaining that they do not have a raid and miss out on content. Take some initiative.

yes. i did this. i went as far to level a tank to 85. I can spend over 2 hours in trade channel and not pick up another tank. Unless i can get a raid that requires one tank.. pug raids, from my point of view are not feasible.

One does not necessarily have to create PuG raids. In fact I personally hate that idea, and think that it's just a nightmare. What I am suggesting isn’t necessarily forming a PuG raid.Actually start your own full fledged raid. Ask around on your server forums, speak with friendly guilds... break out of the guild box or LFD nightmare and I guarantee you'll find 9 other individuals complaining about not having a regular raid on your server within a week tops. The real question is... why are players just standing around complaining instead of actually taking ownership of their own game play. Today’s Breakfast Topic just fuels the laziness I’m observing from others. There are options available for players, you just might not be able to sit back and get carried through the content. If you’re not raiding right now it is your own choice.

It really depends on the player.Players that actually want to take leadership roles are rarer than tanks. I, for example, was a tank, but didn't care about leading 5-mans (I would let anyone who stepped up for the job and proved minimally competent lead), hated leading raids (I would step up if the raid leader was doing a really horrible job, otherwise meh), and would never, ever consider assuming a permanent guild or raid leadership position.This is often a constant with games. Players that actually find leadership roles fun (proper leadership, not just the thrill of power) are rare, and until Blizzard starts to hire professional raid and guild leaders to organize other players, I wouldn't want to impose leadership on any unwilling player.(It might be an interesting idea. Hire special GMs to organize and lead guilds and raids, and charge something extra from players that want guaranteed spots on Blizzard-organized raids and guilds. Those special GMs wouldn't even need any special powers, they would just be Blizzard employees dedicated to organizing fun and fair groups. They could also serve as a way for Blizzard to gather more direct feedback on features and tweaks to make guild and raid organization easier and more fun.)
