I have to say, 25m content is significantly easier then 10m content. That would be the only thing i would disagree with.Lose one person in 10m...Brez..lose 2...it could be and usually was over at the start.What took our 2 10m groups 2 or 3 weeks to get down, our 25m run did in its first 2 hours.It was crazy how much easier it was. So much more room for error and bad play in a 25m then a 10m. Then throw in faster gear progression, its a no-brainer. Do a 25m, you spend less time and accomplish more.Heck our first 25m's didn't even have 25 people we 22 or 21 manned a ton of it.As for the guilds blowing up over this change...it didn't really happen. Once you do a 10man and a 25man, you see how much easier a 25m is...if u can do it, u will.I used to raid 5 or 6 days a week. A 10m, a 25m, an alt 10m...and if i had nothing to do on a weekend..an alt alt 10m. There was just so much more to do. Easier healing mechanics produced more alt healers and smoothed out gear and learning curves.Try to run a cata 10m with a bad healer and ur two other healers may try to murder you. Sure, once you have gear, u can two healer, single healer some fights, but getting to that point was not fun. I got my last alt to 80 2 weeks before cata came out, i had 8 of em. (Yes, i might have played a bit too much heh) In cata...i had those same 8 alts all at 85 by the 3rd month. Just feels like so much less to do on my main these days.

Even if 25 mans are easier to run, they are not easier to organize, and thus stating that new 25 man guilds/groups are being created all the time because the raids are easier is not accurate at all. It is more difficult to organize 30 people than 12. 10 man raiding is easier to set up, period. For the raider there is less pressure to perform in a 25 man if you aren't a tank, sure, but that's about it.I read guild leadership and raider type forums all the time. To say there are as many 25 man guilds around now as there were in January is not true. They aren't being formed as fast and some are dying. I've heard of entire servers where there is one 25 man guild left, or none. In addition to this, almost everyone these days seems to request 10 man strats. Also Al'akir 25 and Council 25 are not easier. Some bosses are easier in 25 and yes you can 22 man normal content although I'd question how many heroics you can get down with your 22 man group. It isn't suprising that your group went in as a 25 and got down all of the bosses it had taken you two weeks to down before in two hours because people knew the fights. We went in with a group who had never done 10s and we got down the heroics in four hours what it took us six to do in the previous week AND we got down a new heroic boss in those four hours. It works both ways.

totally off base here. you must not have ever tried to organize and lead a consistent 25 man team. only people who have no experience with 25 man cata raids claim that tens are the same or harder. they aren't. period. full stop.
