Nov 24th 2009 3:35PM I'm feeling lucky. Mice me.
Apr 1st 2009 3:28AM I agree w/ the article that the change would not kill 25-man raids.......initially anyway. Let me explain: In my current situation, the only drop I have interest in from Naxx10 or 25 is the Wall of Terror off KT25. Because there is no longer a drop I want in Naxx10, I dont run it. Now, if the Wall of Terror dropped off of KT10 and KT25, I'd be running both versions every week to get 2 shots a week at the shield. Eventually I'd get it and stop running both. Its not like anyone has any use whatsoever for badges anymore w/ the slim selection we've been given to choose from, so those aren't much of a motivating factor to keep raiding. In Ulduar, ppl would only be running 25-mans to get a 2nd shot at gear that they wanted but didnt get in the 10-man each week. Ppl would simply get geared up twice as fast, and then spend less time playing WoW at all or raiders would switch their focus to PvP to keep from being bored all the time. In the end, the gear parity you speak of would diminish interest in the game and undermine Blizzard's own interests, which is to keep ppl coming back every month and filling their pockets a bit more. This is a business afterall. They do this to make money first, everything else second.
