BC Heroics were brutal and if you didn't have the right tank/healer/dps/CC, you were screwed. My guildmates and I tried to do a Shadow Labs run that took us, ultimately 2 days and 2 tries to get through. I forget the exact makeup but we had almost no usable CC and that 6-pull at the entrance to the 2nd boss' room was almost impossible.The same can be said for a lot of the heroics at the start of Cata. Trying to do full guild runs, we found that being "coordinated" on voice chat doesn't offset the loss of health/damage/heals from Luck of the Draw if you don't have 5 people who are Zen Masters of their class and spec. I don't mind putting in the time to do a lengthy heroic but I can't stand the way Blizzard goes back and forth between "AoE Faceroll Trash/Deadly Boss" and "Deadly Trash/Faceroll Boss". I want a challenge but not one that's going to make me corpse run every other pull.All that having been said, I like the new model better. If they want me to cap my valor every week, making me sit in a queue for most of the night or wipe endlessly with guildmates isn't much fun. I'd rather get in and out quick. I haven't seen too many wipes (random or premade) on the new instances unless people do something stupid. With the addition of the Raid Finder (and people who are gearing up through it), it's making even the new heroics pretty faceroll-able - and at least that means it's less painful to cap valor rather than running the same 2 Zul'Roics 7 times a week.
