It’s interesting to note that WoW Insider’s Matt Rossi has now waded into the 25-man raiding debate, with a clarity of thought that has escaped some of his more recent work. A quick hat-tip is in order for him using the same analogy as I did, but it’s extremely telling when someone who objectively dislikes 10-man raiding has drawn the conclusion that its pre-eminence is inevitable. His point is that the question of “how” one saves 25-man raiding doesn’t concern him.
Perhaps there is a better question, he asks.
Why would you try and save 25-man raiding?
Mr. Rossi draws multiple conclusions, all logical and valid, and it’s great to read someone commentating so clearly despite their personal preference. I think his post is a breath of fresh air. But if the bell truly has tolled on the 25-man scene, and all evidence points to the fact that it has, perhaps players should be preparing for the inevitable aftermath.
For me, I honestly cannot see any other conclusion than the single 15-man format at the conclusion of MoP.
