Apr 7th 2009 3:07AM I very much agree with the article author on this.
We are a small 10-man guild that raids 10-man raids exclusively. We could easily get a 25-man team going, but that's not interesting. We raid 10-man because that size of a team suits us very well.
We were so happy when WotLK was announced with all content available for 10/25 man respectively.
I chuckle every time I read about 10-mans being only for casuals, 25-man is where the "true" raiding is yada yada.
Same thing was posted in caps when TBC was announced, raiders were crying on forums saying that 40-man raiding is the "true" raiding...
Also, thumbs up on what Zamn10210 posted, I would also like to see 10-mans progression path being a separate path than 25-mans. I guess the Algalon achievement is one step towards this and it will be very exciting to try out.
