We have only 1 progression kill that was 10 man in previous tier... Heroic Al'akir.. Heroic Nefarian has been done only once on this server and it was done on 25. All of our Heroic Kills were done on 25 man first except V & T which was 1 night of attempts and killed because our raid week was over and it turned out to be a joke. As you may or may not know Blizzards Lockout system makes it very difficult to do 10 and 25 simultaneously
Blizzard's lockout system forces you to go 25 or 10 man once you reach heroic.. There is no restriction on Normal mode.. For example if i go kill Heroic Shannox on 25 i can NOT switch it to Heroic 10 man on Baleroc... I can flip it to normal 10 but Heroic I am locked to 25 man ONLY instance.

And i do not refute this part i only say that is overall.. Its a semi-accurate statement to tell someone if they are planning to come over here and hang out or raid 10 mans or PVP. Its not
an accurate statement for someone who is coming over here looking for a 25 man guild. If you actually go through the other servers you will see a TON of them are 10 man guild servers and have NO 25 man guilds of any significance.
What would you say to a person looking for a 25 man guild if he were looking at lets say Aegwynn?
They have a TON of 10 man guilds. They have 2 Guilds who are 2/7 heroic and they rank overall 112, which is way higher then our overall.., However go look at their 25 man rankings and there is only 1 guild and they are 5/7... I bet that's probably not a server you would recommend to a guy looking for a 25 man guild . Take it a step further and tell me if your looking for a 25 man guild would you choose Aegwynn or Blade's Edge?
See the problem is everyone seems to look at it the way it was in WotLK and earlier when they were separate lockouts.. Back then if you were ranked high in 10's you were probably high in 25's because most 25 man guilds ran 10's on their off nights.. There was no seperation and therefore overall was an accurate way to rank the servers. That isn't the case anymore...
I have indepth personal knowledge of all these arguement. I recruit HEAVILY off server. I know how people view this stuff now because most of my progression roster is Off Server transfers and I had to address their reservations. One of the reasons we can recruit so well off server is that we are a 25 man guild and players look at the 25 man rankings not the overall.
Not to change the subject but if you want to know what the biggest obstacles I face when recruiting off server?
1. We are an alliance Guild
2. We are a very weak server for PVP
3. We are not a High Population Server
Progression isnt an issue because your recruiting the guilds progression NOT the servers
My last question and i will end this... if you complain so much about Blade's Edge why are you here?
