@Me - My first foray into heroic raiding was against Halfus in T11. 5 SECONDS into the fight and I was tanking the floor (no explanation meant I attacked a drake, who proceeded to eat me).Result? Easy kill.IF Blizz didn't KNOW there was a difference in the number of deaths that a group could endure and still succeed, WHY ARE THERE THREE BREZZES in 25 man, versus only 1 in 10 man? Answer: It isn't because there are 15 more people (that would mean 2.5 brezzes, so, 2, not 3). It's because they KNOW that you have more breathing room in 25 man vs 10 man. One guy pulling 10k? So? He's at 4.3% of the group's dps (made up numbers based on my memories of 25 man and the lfr), not a big deal. 10k dps in 10-man, he's 8-9% of the dps, which means he's dragging the entire group down in a BIG WAY.I agree that getting 25 people to work together is harder than 10. However, if you're in a 25-man raid, you already have a larger desire to be there and work together, so this argument quickly becomes moot.Getting 25 people online is easier than 10? DUH. If that's the argument, we should have 2-player raids.... It's a LOT easier to get 2 people together than 10. Sorry, had to say it. Again, we go to the fact that 25-man raids have 25 people that WANT to sacrifice time to raid, whereas 10-man guilds usually have 12+ people ready, so everyone thinks "There's more than enough tonight, I'll take the night off", and thus you end up with only 9 people online.... I've seen it a lot.So far both arguments are almost useless because the people that raid 25-mans are usually the more "hardcore" than those that do 10-mans.... Any other thoughts?
