My normal mode guild raids 2 nights a week, 3 hours a night. We currently have 11 raid members. Of those 11 members, at least six have kids. Including both of our main tanks, both of our off-tanks and two of our healers. Of the other five, at least three are married, but I'm not sure if they have kids. I and possibly one other raider are the only ones that are un-married and kid-less. Every single raid member, including every parent, has a full-time job as well.Don't give me a load of crap about how it's "impossible" to raid with kids because I have a full raid that doesn't it every single week. We're adults. We recognize the value of time and have respect for the time that each raid member is contributing. At the same time I also recognize that some people's lives just don't have even that much time for WoW. Is WoW the most important thing? Of course not. Why do we play? Because we enjoy it. Because it's a great way to have some down time and fun with friends. It's worth it to us to take just a few hours out of the week and raid. We LIKE normal difficulty. It's perfect for us. Challenging, but not soul-crushing. Progressable, but not faceroll-easy.Despite that, nowhere in my first response did I say the Raid Finder was a bad idea. Just that it's not MY preference. If you bother to look through my posting history here, you'll find that I've more than once suggested the need for an "easy" difficulty level for raids. I am in full support of the Raid Finder for those that want to use it. I am just not one of those and neither is my raid group. You will enjoy it? Good for you! Seriously. I hope you have fun. I won't be running in the Raid Finder because, quite simply, it won't be fun for me.
