nUI6 raid frames question...

I've got a question for the community with regard to the nUI6 raid frames. Obviously, space is at a premium. With that in mind, I'm trying to decide how to handle raid group numbers. I'm of a mind that I'm going to remove the character level from the raid frames and replace that with the raid group number in the default raid frames.

For raids, odds are everyone is level 80, so it's not important info. But, for battlegrounds, I dunno.

So, what does the community think? Is it "okay" to replace level with raid ID or do you think we really need to display both?

I don't think we need the char level. The group number would be much more helpful in my opinion.

Use the group number

I'm in agreement - the group number is more helpful than the level, even in BGs. Not sure if anyone cares what level others are in BGs now, even in the leveling brackets. If it is still on the tooltip for the unitframe, that would be sufficient for those that would like to see the level of someone in a BG raidgroup.

I agree with DMStehlek. Knowing a characters level in raid frames is probably the last thing I think about in raids or in battlegrounds. If I want to know what level someone is, I'll check blizzard's raid frame in the social pane or select them and check on the unit frame.

Drop the lvl and go with group number. FAR more useful.
