Are We There Yet?

No? How about now? Are we there yet? But I’m BOREDDDDD! There’s nothing to DO!!!!! Are we there yet??! How about now??

I’m leveling Archeology. I’m still pursuing Loremaster. I’ve been going after nerdpoints. I’ve been fishing. I’m blogging again. I’m patiently waiting for the expansion announcements scheduled for this week. Soon as the beta opens I’m there, and will be creating a MT mirror guild for my guildies that are also playing in the beta.

It’s not just my boredom. It’s everyone’s. People are dropping like flies that just inhaled a can of Raid. Recruiting at this time in an expansion is just not worth the time or effort. We no longer have 30 consistent raiders to fill 3 groups. We do however have about 25 consistent raiders. If I had a nickel for every time “hey we should just do 25s” crossed my mind during this expansion, I would afford to give a 1 month game card to every inactive player in the guild. If I had a dime for every time “let’s just condense to 2 groups” has been brought up, I could pay off my student loan.

Easier said than done, on both accounts.

25 man raiding pros:

  1. Nobody gets left out
  2. It brings everyone together
  3. Making a mistake isn’t as costly in 25 as in 10

25 man raiding cons:

  1. Ever try to herd a pack of feral kittens?
  2. Scheduling nightmare. I don’t think there are 2 days in the week where all 25 people are available.
  3. Bigger strain on system resources
  4. Nobody wants to lead it
  5. Not enough people want to do it

2×10 pros:

  1. Can be pickier with group selection
  2. Piggybacking off #1, better chance of progression with a bigger pool of raiders
  3. Boss Lady doesn’t have to scramble to find replacements if someone can’t make a raid
  4. Boss Lady can stop beating her head against the wall recruiting for open spots
  5. The groups would be a lot more solid and consistent
  6. Temporary fix until MOP comes out and inactive players come back

2×10 cons:

  1. It sucks big fat hairy tauren balls for those that get left out
  2. Too many players would get left out
  3. Boss Lady gets blamed for who gets left out
  4. Players stuck on the bench get all grumpy and decide to find a guild they CAN raid with
  5. Boss Lady has to recruit again

Dear Blizzard, please adjust raid sizes from 25-man to 15-man. Thank you.

    Hey YOU… IF this is really driving you so mad and you’re really not having as much fun as you are getting headaches over it… why not take a break yourself until MoP and let people who want to keep raiding determine if they want to keep solid groups… or go Alt… or whatever ?
    Clearly you’re stressing way too much over this.. and it can’t be good on you.. It’s been a good X-pac for MT.. but everyone.. yes EVERYONE..even you deserves a little time to just relax..
