Couldn't agree with this article more. The extra effort combined with horrible tuning on blizzards part (10-man is far easier than 25-man for both normal and heroic modes) really put an end to 25-man raiding.LFR was just the final nail in the coffin - why bother putting in any effort trying to organize people when they can see the same content in LFR for no effort? Especially with all gear being reset every patch. There is no sense of progressing your character forward anymore, just time on the treadmill.

why hop on a treadmill when you can hop on a bike going downhill and see the sights along the way without even peddling?I really miss separate lockouts for 10 and 25 mans, being able to do a raid with my guild on 10 man and then do a couple of bosses on a guild based 25 man with a pug really helped flexibility and just helped people feel overall more rewarded for playing.

I disagree. The sense of progression these days is far greater than it was during TBC. I was part of a guild that never got past Karazhan, as every time we got someone geared up to our level they'd jump ship to a "better" guild, forcing us to have to recruit and gear up another player who'd then jump ship.At least in Wrath and post-4.3 Cataclysm, players don't have to be running on the treadmill from the very beginning to stand a chance of doing more than just hearing about 90% of the expansion's bosses.
