We're pretty good at knowing the capabilities of most of our raiders.
We use past performance to judge where we stand and what we think we can do.
If we steam-roll the content one week, then next week we'll almost certainly extend, but extending just for the sake of it wouldn't be fun for anyone.
I'd love to get the tuesday night raid to see all of the raid instance, but at the moment we just don't have the performance from enough of our players. The way our raiding structure is desgined we can't do much about that, but I know it must be frustrating for any of you getting a bit bored of the same old bosses.
The best way for us to progress is for each individual to look at their own performance and increase it to decent levels. We can't force anyone to do this, and 'forcing' it on anyone rarely works - players have to want to improve.
Every week we ask people to look at their style of play and try and improve, but you just can't make players better by asking
Just so you know, DPS on festergut should be around 8k per person. If you incude the 25% dps buff we get, players should be able to push 10k each in their current gear levels. Anyway, 8k should be absolute minimum if you want us to take down the final 5 bosses in the instance!
