I'd say that's true of normal mode. but on heroic it's actually not true at all, in fact, 25 man is tuned tigher then 10 man in just about every dps check. Ultraxion on 25 man you wouldnt make berserk without 5 healing, with 2 healers dpsing for 3-4 min, tanks pulling 20k dps, and all the dps pulling their weight in early tier. did i mention sitting the feral druids?10 man, blizzard designs the encounters to be leaniant so they aren't overly punishing for poor comps. But i think they straight overshot that goal in most cases. 10 mans were killing ultraxion the first week with 30 second to spare on berserk. Heck, our 10 man alt run got a 5:42 kill in pretty much LFR gear on 10 heroic without a 8% spell damage debuff in a mostly caster group. Now imagine if you actually did have a stacked comp.http://www.worldoflogs.com/zones/Dragon_Soul/Ultraxion/10H/http://www.worldoflogs.com/zones/Dragon_Soul/Ultraxion/25H/EDIT< apparently i can only enter 3 urls, but compare all the bosses for yourself not just this one, you'll see and you'll get the point.Now, are some fights harder on 10 vs 25, apsolutely, mechanically hagara is harder (although, she's still an easy fight regardless). In T12 beth'tilac was definitely harder on 10 man. However, i can't think of any other fight that's harder on 10 man in either tier, since they all suffer from same lack of propper dps check tuning. They get to 2 heal and faceroll berserk, or 3 heal and make berserk with ease on healers, 25 man gets to underheal just about everything, so dps and healers stress every single fight.Also on article the part where same reward for more effort? try LESS reward. With the nerf to tier tokens, we get less tokens per body on 25 man then 10 man. Vanity items such as mounts we get royally shafted on. Heroic rag mount? 1 drops on 10 man and 25 man, how is that even remotely fair? 25 man should take 2.5x longer for same reward as 10 man, for doing a harder version of fight to boot? It's no wonder 25 mans are a dying breed.
