1) Level the playing field by forcing linear progression (no more skipping)
2) Allow guilds to continue progressing and gearing in HM while attempting NM

The current system makes it difficult for guilds to keep players progressing who are not in the NM raids because the key players are saving lockouts on their mains. The only downside might be the influx of commendations available to high end players, but lets face it ultimate comms don't buy anything good and there are weekly and total caps.

Please sign the petition if you agree that the lockouts should be separate.
Normally, I would agree, but since everyone pretty much said 'live with it' when I wanted some changes done, I will say it here....'live with it.'

The Community Team has pretty much admitted to staying out of the "well behaved" forums. Best drop a PM to Eric or move the petition to the Suggestions Forum (off General).

On this topic it is even affecting my guild. We have multiple HM ops groups with one active NiM run group. The tank in our NiM group has an alt dps in one of the HM groups. His DPS is geared to the teeth and doesnt need anything from HM. He naturally wants to progress but the HM group is a bit behind core raiders on vacation etc so they dont move to NiM. So now the DPS steps out and says "I don't want to burn my NiM lockouts on HM when i dont need anything" Which makes sense sure but there is nobody else available to replace the guy so the HM group falls apart.
Easy to say "recruit new guys" but the issue is this would not even be an issue if the HM and NiM had separate lockouts

(I know that was probably taking things too seriously there, but hey; some would look on that as a viable alternative )

I could see them adding "pay CC to reset lockouts" or having the f2p ops pass do that but for subscribers also.

Nightmare Mode gives significantly better loot than Hard Mode. This would solve both issues of skipping Nightmare Mode Bosses, as well as preventing guilds from running Nightmare Mode content due to still gearing members in Hard Mode.
