You can always ignore the rest of the players like we normally do.
Since it tends to be a struggle to even get 10 people together I can't see there being much use for this at all.
My point was that PCG can do this not just Team WIn, so we can have people from Awesome and guild members not even in a team AND other friends on Read ID.
This opens the raid up to even more PC Gamer readers too as they can join us via Read ID and raid with other magazine readers, maybe even transferring and joining us if they like the guild as a whole.
Its better loot than LFR and we can all be on Vent. Better still if people need to go early then we'd just be able to continue (depending on composition obviously) scaling down automatically from, say, 16 people to 14 without any issues.
You can also get credit for some of the achievements for the meta which is a very nice addition.
Personally I see this as the perfect replacement for LFR guild runs and depending on the difficulty it could provide a better experience than just ignoring boss abilities like you do on LRF and give an experience very similar to 10mans in Wrath.
I think it looks very promising, not for a specific team, but for the guild raiding together.
