Loot council & "free rolls" are a lot less fair in 25-mans (where you could still have 5 or even 10 people wanting the same ring/necklace/trinket). Loot in general is a lot harder to manage in 25-mans. So, using some sort of point system in 25's helps ensure more fairness and less drama.In 10-mans, you won't have as much competition for each item compared to 25's, so loot council or free-rolls work fine for the smaller raid size (where loot disputes may be between 2 or 3 people).

I was never a fan of Loot Council, as it is most prone to favoritism. We have a DKP back-up plan in case we need it for our 10-man. These days, we use it mostly as a "threat": "don't make me break out DKP"If I did have to go to a group that used a more formal loot distribution, I would not join a Loot Council team.AFA loot distribution - 10-mans can get pretty intense. You get a higher gear drop ratio in 25-mans than in 10-mans and I don't think I've ever seen duplicate drops in 10-mans (which can happen in 25-mans), so the loot's "dearer." If you lose the roll for that cloth shoulder, you may not see it again for another month if the RNG gods are not kind.In terms of 25-man v. 10-man, you have to to think of it as wine versus Port. You may get more from a bottle of wine, but what you do get from a bottle of Port is the same alcohol, just more concentrated. ;)
