Did I mention how much I love this web app yet? Several days ago, I posted my thoughts on the new information released about Wrath of the Lich King. The night after, I went to a birthday party with a few friends. Some of them were former WoW players and they asked me if there was anything in the expansion worth coming back for.
I told them Arthas is now 10 mannable. They were stunned. Immediately, I could tell they didn’t believe that the fight would be "epic" enough with only 10 players. This lead me to ask a quick question on Twitter to my WoW playing colleagues:
Question: What makes an encounter, raid or otherwise, considered "epic"?
As you can see, no one player or blogger mentioned anything about player limits. The "epicness" of an encounter falls solely on Blizzard and how their design team is going to set up the bosses in raids. I’m willing to bet Arthas and Malygos will truly be memorable fights on their own whether they’re fought in 10 or 25 mans.
