I can't see the "don't be new on my time" undercurrent of WoW facilitating the acceptance of this feature unless the completion achievement is a pre-requisite to queue. I don't like that, but it's true.I truly hope I'm wrong, and that this won't become a trainwreck. This will be interesting to watch.

Agreed. Heck, just last night we had a mostly guild run of Bastion of Twilight and one member mentioned he hadn't been there before. We lost 2 of our 3 Pug'd players over it.It's getting ridiculous...

Not to mention the DF ethic of grouping well geared players with less geared players. That will be magnified in the "srs bsns" raid environment, and it will get ugly.Again... I hope I'm wrong.

I agree and I hate that. I've not raided much this expansion because my old guild died from lack of interest in the new content, so I took a break and levelled an alt. Coming back now I'm finding it hard enough to get into a decent guild when I have no experience in Firelands, let alone a PUG for BoT or BWD!A feature like this sounds good in theory, but in practise the playerbase will disown it.

maybe a self rate button would be a good idea. we could have a "srs bsns" button, an intermediate and a beginner button. people who are new to raiding would probably avoid pressing the "srs bsns" button. hardcore raiders pressing the beginner button would more or less know what they're in for. i think most people would click the intermediate button. i'm just rambling here.
