The only way this would work is if it only applied to non-current teirs. If they do that, it'd be great for getting people caught up in gear to do current content. (or to let you get through old Raid Rep achieves faster!)Some people have killed Rag many times, have 391 gear, but still have Zul shoulders and/or helm. I think it would work just fine. Especially if all gear is a token, RNG on RNG sucks enough as it is. Giving an extra shot a week would be the best thing.
I can't figure out if you're arguing or agreeing o.O
I'm assuming arguing! (It is the wow forums! xD)
As long as it doesn't include current content. Some people already raid 4 or more days to push the progression. This would just be MADDENING for them. "Serious" Raiding would become a 7day a week job.
While it sucks to have Full Tier X except a Tier X-1 helm/shoulder/whatever, it's not gunna kill you. As long as all your gear is from the tier before the one you're working on OR your currently farming content, you're OK and need to relax (keep trying obviously, but relaxxxx). Now if you have a slot thats not been upgraded since 2 or more tiers ago, then I understand the frustration. (which is why I said allow it for all content before the current tier.)
There's always going to be plenty of filler gear in the previous tier to fill any holes you may have. Although frankly, with LFR coming out, thats gunna eliminate ALOT of gear hole problems since the Teir 13 LFR gear is gunna be better then Tier 12. (I think, although I"m not sure if it'll be better then H T12. Need to check on that) Regardless, your normal Guild raid scedule, plus a LFR run, PLUS 1 or 2 Firelands runs should be plenty to fill your missing slots.
