End of Expansion Raiding

I'm not really sure when the release date of Cataclysm is. First I heard Nov 2, now that's "slipped" and it will be around the first week or two of December. Honestly I think that Dwism is partially correct, and Cata won't come until the shiny has been all the way worn off of Starcraft. Blizzard doesn't want to cannibalize their own subscriber base.

Now in the interim, Darkfall has been a bit slow on the raids. We've reduced to 10 man raids. There are a bunch of people who want to just kill LK and some people who want to do heroic modes and some other people who want to do achievements. It's making the 10man ICC a bit annoying.

Last night for example there were all three camps in the raid. About half of the people wanted to do some heroic modes and the other half wanted to do heroics and/or achievements. We failed at heroics and at achieves. It was rather lame. We did a terrible job of gelling as a group, so our attempts at heroic Marrowgar were 3 wipes before we called it and went back to normal mode. This is after one-shotting him two days previously. I'm not sure if it's sadder that we couldn't get him to start with or that we gave up after 3 tries. We almost had the Rotface achieve, but someone didn't want to do it so they merged their slime with the one I was kiting instead of forming a new one.

Anyway we got through the first 8 bosses. All that is left are the Blood Wing, Sindragosa, and LK. It wasn't a bad night of raiding, but it was boring and several achievements that easily were within our grasp were not done.
