@Graylo:You say that people aren't quitting 25s because they don't enjoy 25s, they are quitting 25s because 25s are inconvenient (either to organize, or to even locate).Isn't that kind of the same thing? I mean, if you say to me that I have to do more work in order to play my game...that doesn't sound fun to me. I ran an ICC25 back in the day, and it was driving me nuts. I can't blame *anyone* who doesn't feel like taking that mantle up. And I have to assume that you agree with me, since you mention all the former 25-players you know who can't "find" a 25 to play in. If they all loved 25s that much, and there are so many of them, why don't they start up their own 25, from scratch? Post on their server forums, advertise it in /1, etc.? Pretty soon they'd have a new 25 going, and yay, happy-fun-time-25-raiding.The answer: organizing a 25 isn't fun. It is work. Oftentimes demoralizing work, when you feel like 20-odd people are sitting around, bored, while you try to find a pugger to fill in, because *another* person just decided to not show up tonight.So, by their very nature, 25s are less fun. Maybe you don't see that, if you are just one of the people who shows up every week, and never thinks about what the raid leader went through to get things rolling, or what healing captain is trying to juggle to make sure that people don't die, or whatever. But when I see people say that "wildly inconvenient" isn't the same thing as "not fun", it blows my brain.Maybe someday, Blizz will make a system where you can happily run the 25 format you love, without having to worry about personalities, recruitment, healing assignments, tanking assignments, dps assignments, etc.Orite, LFR. Go have fun killing stuff with 24 other people. And next time you run a non-LFR 25, be sure to thank your raid leader and his officers.
