before cata came out, there was a thread on the old forums discussing 25 vs 10 man raiding and how people felt like the new loot system was going to kill larger guilds. since it's been a while since launch now, i was just curious as to how people feel like things actually turned out. from what i can tell from the progression thread/guildox/wowprogress, only a handful of the larger guilds are still running progression 25 mans with a whole lot of guilds switching to running multiple 10 mans instead. i'm also curious if any of the multi guild alliances have survived (ie wotw and mim horde side) given the new guild participation system.
my 2 cents...... our guild is decidedly casual (2 nights a week for ~2 hours) and there have been some benefits and some downsides to the changes. it's been nice to have the smaller raid instances that allow for us to try something new each week and allow us to switch up where we choose to progress. we raid at a non-standard time, run a lean roster and don't have mandatory attendance though, so the guild participation system means that if we don't have 10 people available we pretty much don't raid since pugging players has become almost impossible. i also feel like i've seen a lot fewer unguilded or guilded with a small guild players interested in raiding.
