Apr 12th 2009 9:17AM Let's face it....raiding (no matter if 10 or 25) is about performing a rather banal action at a given point in time. What separates so called hardcore players from casuals is, that they usually know earlier when to move and when to hit a certain button. Nothing more, nothing less. But the demands on a player remain actions, every kindergarten child is able to perform. So pls don't overestimate what we are doing, guys.
It should be easy to agree that the effort of a single player is more important in a smaller group then a larger one. A 25-man-raid is just more error-prone, cause it requires more people to successfully perform the mentioned "kindergarten action".
That being said, there is absolutely no reason for 25-man-loot to be superior to 10-man and even heroics. Blizzard is following a silly philosphy in this case driven by players who mix up error-proneness with difficulty and i agree with the author that playing skill should be rewarded instead of logistical effort and suffering.
