On top of that 10 man is tuned much tighter then 25. 1 Person messes up your likely to wipe unless you really outgear the content.
That for a start is false.
The difficulties seem to be simiilar on both modes so stop complaining. One person dies on a 25 man can wipe the raid. Its not as simple as you think.
Then on top of that I found out about the t15 token changes, where it isn't a guaranteed drop in 10 man anymore, 0-2 tokens can drop, and in 25 2-4 tokens can drop.
So run 25s if you want guarenteed loot. There comes a point where 10 man should not have all the advantages. Easier to organise, less people to have drama with, less people to have to herd during raid..... etc. Makes it easier to all be on the same page.
25s take more organisation, especially during fights. More people to screw up the mechanics and wipe you... more people to have to assign jobs in fights that require it. So they get a bit less loot rng.
So what? If loot is your be all and end all... join a 25 man raid. If clearing content is what you're aiming at... does it really matter which format you are in and what loot drops or not?
Two things, one, you said Seem, which means you're not positive of the truth of the matter.
Secondly, it's been hard as hell nowadays to get into a 25 man guild that a) clears decently(and I mean just normal) and b) raids at the time you can. No one should have to change their work hours at their job, or re-arrange their life to be able to suit the needs of others to be able to raid on WoW, they really shouldn't, it's definitely a hobby for a lot of us, but a hobby shouldn't dictate any part of how you manage your time in real life, and for WoW, for the majority of us actually trying to complete content or play competitively at all, this is required.
Now you say it's a video game, no one's telling you you have to play it, or do anything about it. True. But that doesn't change the fact that most of us that play want to complete content, the whole point of the game, and aren't able to as well as we want to due to "Time Constraints" implemented by blizzard, which makes it pointless to want to play. The game is there so we can have fun and enjoy ourselves. That is the reason it's there, and when a good amount of people are having issues being able to do so due to multiple variables, some of which can't be controlled, I agree, but other's which can, something needs to be done. I stress need because there definitely is a solution to this problem.
In the end, as great as the game is, there are quite a few small-medium issues that amount in the end as one big problem, and a lot of people have expressed this same sentiment. There needs still to be more tweeking in this area of gameplay, not to mention other area's, that would really live this game further to greater heights of popularity and enjoyment and notoriety.
