Once a guild has a raid on farm it becomes more about getting in, doing as much damage as possible, and ranking high. This has torn guilds apart, forced guild leaders to try and reign people back so others can enjoy the content, and caused misery ... **** missed Sith raid again.
I can understand the developers not wanting to put the most actually played content on sim by adding the sim feature to the others. Here is my idea (sorry if it’s been presented before), but once a guild reaches the required point then why not have a sim level on the raid instead of just sim. This would be the exact same version as Heroic but when you reach the required tickets it unlocks the raid for 24-36-48 hours and the guild could go in and kill it as many times as they want. Each time it is defeated it and rosters start over. Once the time is up the raid is locked again and the sim rewards are dispersed.
This would give everyone a chance to actually play in them instead of the lucky few that happen to make it in before they are beaten. It would give us a chance to play around with other chars and allow us to create our own fun.
