You are confusing "not agreeing" with "not understanding." The posts are easy to understand. I simply disagree with them.
04/23/2012 02:56 PMPosted by AzloranThe theory is that the choice of running 25 man vs running 10 man is not really a choice.
It is common parlance around here to confuse "lack of choice" with "choices I don't like."
If you wish to run 40-mans, you have "no choice." They don't exist. If you wish to run 25-mans, you do have a choice. You may not like the choices you have to make to participate with one of the 2,000 or so U.S. 25-man guilds, but that is a far cry from "not having a choice." It is simply "not having easy choices" or "not having choices I like."
If this is still confusing, you might try to actually start a 40-man raiding guild. I think you will quickly see the difference in the challenge. :-)
As for the rest, I have happily acknowledged that there are people who think they deserve "compensation" for the additional effort required to organize 25-man raiding guilds, and that they tend to focus on unique loot rewards. I simply disagree that they should receive them.
Personally, I fully agree that the two formats should have unique achievements. I think it is insane that we have achievements for eating chocolate cookies, but can't do one for, say, killing Heroic Madness 25-man as opposed to 10-man.
I don't know that separate achievements would bring many people back into the fold, but I really can't fathom an argument against having them.
