I did enjoy the film, but the plot makes no sense at all, ha.

This is how I get people to go "what the fuck." I enjoyed, liked, and prefer the Star Wars prequel movies much more than the original. Revenge of the Sith is by far my favorite of all the films. I watch the movies for the special effects and the fun factor and the prequels delivered on all of those fronts and satisfied my Star Wars itch. Completely opposite reaction to the Clone Wars series, I want character development and story arcs and well don't plotting and pacing for that.

Yes. Pod Racing alone makes Episode 1 worth watching.

Sci-fi nascar in my star wars? No thanks.

I think the prequels get good a little ways into ep 2.

The funny thing is he's completely right. The WiiU is absolute garbage. No third party devs other than small box shovelware devs want to bother with a system that uses last gen tech.

The only issue I have with the Wii U (so far at least) is that the youtube app doesn't update its searches when done, so I have to wait ~3 hours after something is posted before I can watch it on my TV - also, some videos are rather choppy, but I think thats probably more a network/youtube issue than the Wii U.

Of course, I don't expect 1 consoled to deliver to all my needs (currently have a PS3, Wii U (a wii)and an XB360 - will probably upgrade when the new ones come around (not all at once though).
Main Characters:
Nooska, Blood Elf BM/SV Hunter on Argent Dawn (EU)
Morosin, Bloody freezing orc death knight on Argent Dawn (EU)
Niisca, Shady forsaken "priest" on Argent Dawn (EU)

From a recent wowinsider interview with GC (bold mine):

WI: Do you think 25 man raiding has stabilized at all, or is it still in decline? Are you guys working on anything to address that?

GC: I don't know -- overall, I haven't looked at the numbers in awhile -- my hunch would be that it's still in decline honestly, because there aren't a lot of -- it's just entropy, that 25 man guilds collapse into 10 man guilds, and it's really hard for a 10 man guild to decide "Hey, let's recruit a bunch and become 25!" We do like 25 raiding, it offers some -- what we think are cool advantages over 10's. I think personally, 25 feels more epic, you have a whole army of characters assaulting an enemy base. It's a great opportunity to bring in new players to raiding, or you know, your friend who maybe isn't super skilled but wants to see the content.

When you have 10 players, every single slot is pretty precious. You can do things in 25's like kill a bunch of players and they can still succeed, where if you kill five players in a 10, it's probably a wipe. And just what I said before, that 25 has somewhere to go -- if it starts to fall apart, the guild can reorganize itself as a 10, or often a 25 will recruit again to fill the ranks back up, whereas all the time we see 10 player guilds that start to fall apart just fall apart. It's hard for them to back-fill their ranks and keep the guild going. We're worried that the path from 10 is 10 to exit, rather than 10 to a different guild to raid.


Now, I really am not on any side of the 10/25 argument (I wouldn't call it debate), but did he actually just say that? In an interview? 0.o

That said, I hadn't thought about his comment regarding how 25s tended to either downsize or fill up, but 10s seem to just fold.

In 25s you can potentially carry a person a bit easier than in a 10. However how things shake out doesn't make that a reality as most 25 man raids are for heroic raiding where normal modes are a simple gating system for what they really want to do while most 10s aren't for heroic raiding.

There's been lots of discussion going on on his Twitter about social raiding and raiders and where that belong. He's even mentioned that the WotLK model may be better in that regard with 10s being designed easier and dropping weaker gear.

Ultimately it is a "two is not enough" difficulty issue, a 10 man "LFR" requiring a full group to queue for might fix that concern.

2/4 upgraded gear. They also reset twice weekly I think.

That could be a solution. 10man drops gear with 0/4 upgrades but is a bit easier to clear, 25man drops the 2/4 upgraded gear. While the initial gear in 25man is better, gear from both raids can be equally as powerful in the end, it just takes longer to do on 10man.

You can also change the color of the 25man gear to make it unique.

I more wonder if it will be too late, and if they'll actually be able to make what would be up to 2 more tiers of difficulty (would 10-heroic go away, or would it be harder than 25-N? what about that gear? etc.). History shows that over/undershooting is pretty common in progressive content.

We have LFR for the niche of the old 5-man heroics (partially picked up by heroic scenarios as well, possibly) - namely loot & points with a bit of story on the side. This sort of change means that 10-normals would potentially become something in between what they are now and LFR. 25s would theoretically end up a bit higher or stay the same. But would that drive the folks who currently have 10s as 'their ideal' to go 25? Or would suddenly they look at content that now isn't quite as challenging (possibly not as fun, knowing that the 'ideal' is locked out because of your group size?), potentially complaining about it vocally? Sure, they'd get loot easier, and I'm sure that will make many happy... but if it's suddenly closer to LFR than to what we'd see currently... not so sure.

Pardon me if I'm dubious. I really don't think this alone will solve the decline of 25 guilds.

This is getting well outside amusement, but follow for a sec: If you're going to essentially say that 10s are for the new and sub-par performing raiders... why on earth would you develop a heroic mode, especially if it ends up skipping a difficulty level?
