Certainly the transition from 10 to 25 was part of what made things difficult, but I believe there were other factors in BC as well. Mag was a bit overtuned for its place in the raiding, Blizzard acknowledged this later and nerfed it. Past Gruul and Mag you had attunements (at least at first) so that certainly had an effect. And finally I think the bosses on average stepped up the difficultly level after Kara, though you certainly had easy bosses in each tier (Void Reaver, Lurker, etc.). At the time, other than a bit of badge gear, you had to gear up with the raid to get to the next raid. This was before the Wrath "only the recent tier is current content model." It has harder to overgear content and so later content was not done as much as early content.It does raise the question of what a better raid model is. The Wrath/Cata model or the Vanilla/BC model.
