If by plenty of guilds you mean a bunch of guilds downing normal modes and old content, then yes, there were plenty of guilds downing content.

Draka has never had more than a handful of guilds at most downing the more difficult content.

Clearly Draka doesn't care about 25 mans. Clearly

What happened was the US economy. People couldn't afford the extra $15 a month anymore. Half the people I used to run with quit I logged back in and my friends list is barren.

WoW is actually pretty cheap compared to most forms of entertainment. For $15 you get a month of something to do. It costs double that to take myself and my girlfriend to the movies for 3 hours of entertainment.

I don't know where he lives but I live on the Ma/NH border and it's $21.50 for 2 tickets. Add to that if you want popcorn or anything so yeah $30 is easy to reach for 2 people.

Here in Florida it's $9.75 for regular tickets, $11.50 for 3D. Popcorn is $8 for a large and another $6 for a drink.

Here's the run down of what happened


Blizz devs... Hey lets make 10 man and 25 man share the same exact loot.

Blizz devs... Hey that sounds like a great idea and will help us solidify our everyone should see the content mantra

Blizz devs.... Hey all WoW players we have decided that with Cata we will allow 10 man guilds to reap the same rewards as 25 man guilds. Both raid sizes will offer the same exact gear ilevel and all!

The WoW community... That sounds great!

Cata launches..

GM of a raiding guild... Hey guys Cata is here! Lets do continue to do 25 mans..

Guild members... Hey that sounds awesome! But doesnt 10 man offer the same thing?

GM... Yes it does but we all prefer 25 mans anyway so lets do eeeet

2 months down the road...

GM during scheduled raid night.... Well guys it seems like we are having a problem filling 25 mans but lets keep recruiting and try to continue

Guild members... BUT WHYYYYYYY WAAAAAAA its hard enough getting 20 to log on

GM... Ok guys we're going to do 10 mans

Guild then breaks down into a 10 man guild

GM... WOW this is so much easier than 25 man, why didnt we do this to start off?

Well, that's true except for the part where 10 man heroics are tuned so much tighter than 25 it isn't even a fair contest.

For bads and casuals, though, you're correct.

Maybe in t11 content some of the 10 man fights were more overtuned for the size of the raid comp but 10 man t12 is "easier" than 25 man. A lot of the fights have a much higher requirement in this tier of raiding for 25's. Not to mention one of the biggest factors of spacing. Rag on 10 is a joke, Rag on 25 is not so much a joke only because of the amount of space needed to house 25 players compared to the space you need to house 10 and the same thing goes for fights like alysrazor, domo, and legs.

At the end of the day people pay to play and should play whatever makes them happy whether it be 5's, 10's or 25's. Comparing the 2 raid sizes is always going to be a debate from 25's saying well 25's is harder and 10's saying 10 mans are harder.

http://www.paragon.fi/articles/10-vs-25-comparison - Just read it from the "Pro's"


But thats not the moral of the story it just what happened with servers like Draka that now only have 1 raiding 25 man guild.

Me personally I will always prefer 25 mans over 10's... and before anyone reads to deeply into my post I have 0 issues with 10 man guilds... Both sizes of raids require good game play.

Jeebus... It's 6 bucks here for an adult before 6pm, after 6 it's 8 bucks. Food and drink are usually fairly priced too, but all I ever get is a ticket. Theater crap is wicked unhealthy.

Koug, there wasn't enough lulz in your Dev post. Son, I am disappoint.
