Honestly.I wonder what would happen if they just made it so that 10 and 25 man didn't share lockouts anymore.With one raid, it might be disastrous, but with three or more small raids like at the beginning of the expansion, it might work just fine.Hardcore guilds would continue to clear everything because that's what hardcore means.Casualcore would choose one raid and stick to it, and the pugging scene would be more active since they would be able to pug outside of their guild.On my current server, there are so few 25-man guilds, and most of them are difficult to get into and raid at least three nights a week, with the usual being four. The pugging scene is terrible, and there are way less dedicated pugs and GDKPs like in Wrath, since most people are in 10-mans that clear most things and not want to ruin the lockout or whatever.I'm an enthusiast for 25-mans, and I'm mostly happy with LFR, but I know that in order to deal with more casual schedules and actually raid, I've been through quite a few guilds that do 10-mans, even though in Wrath I vowed that this would be the expansion I do 25-mans first and foremost. The raid lockout change killed that. I know I'm not the only person who wishes they could be doing 25-mans, but it's not like we can just, get together and raid. Different ideals and raid times make that impossible.I don't want to make 10-mans the "starter" raid difficulty, because a great deal of my friends enjoy how tight 10-man raiding is, and 25-man raiding kills their computers. But I wonder, legendary/gear logistics aside, what would happen if we killed separate lockouts. I'm pretty sure it would revitalize server pugging.
