Forgot to state that EU has way better benefits about taking time off.

I’ve always thought that the World First title should go to whichever guild kills it soonest after release in their region. Makes sense really

If US wins within 18 hour head start we’re never going to hear the end of it.r
If EU wins despite the 18 hour head start we’re never going to hear the end of it.

That’s the simplest solution, yes. r
r
Failing that, World First & World Fastest (which need not be mutually exclusive, obviously).

It is funny how the upsides have counter arguments in it. He forgot to mention how long there was an impossible boss in Uldir, how long Limit spent with bugs on blockades and how many fixes on Jaina were implemented while Limit progressed in it while Method’s strat “fix” was reverted after complaining. r

1 realm has 18hrs advantage over the second – howcome u call it a race with unfair conditions, both realms should start with progress at the same time – until then there is no race, simply as slap

Blizzard has stated several times that the world first race is a community thing and though they are excited to watch the race they donu2019t design or plan with it in mind.

Since Crucible last boss looks insanely hard I don’t think we’ll see an US world first despite the 18 hour head start for 2 bosses seems a lot.

Which is weird seeing how they made the Mythic+ system into a tournament. I could see something similar with the new raids. It would be far more interesting to watch than the same class comps running through the same instances again and again.

The release Gap doesn’t really play any advantage to NA over EU. I say this by referencing the hall of fame as proof. The EU are always #1 for both alliance and horde. with the horde ladder always filling up first.r
r
If you look at the rankings on the leader boards for the horde (which always fills the fastest by at least 3 weeks) in the top 25. 23 are EU or china regional guilds. Alliance on the other-hand is rather evenly split between all regions, but is still dominated by either china or EU.r
r
So to say that the release gap plays into any advantage to NA over EU is totally incorrect.

Is a week long mythic raid race even significant enough for any of this to matter?

why don’t release Raid content at the same time.

why don’t release Raid content at the same time.

Then they have a different issue. When do they release it? Releasing it at say 10 AM PST means 6 PM for London, 7 PM in Germany, 8 PM in Moscow, and 1 AM in China.

Regardless of when you choose to release it, someone’s going to get screwed because it’ll be a bad time for them.

I feel the only way to make an actual race would be to determine literally how long it took them from the release of the content for their server. But then we run into the issue where starting later has no downside because the bugs get fixed, you can see other people’s progress and plan your own strategies, while still having the same “starting time”

r
they were even scared all can over before the start usa server was trying be limited trying stop the chinese farmers few my pals start us servers by using vpn.r
and that time vanilla was so painful my pal once said not even had any real contents much dm even wasnt in game .r

Some care enough to post silly comments assuring they don’t care. Some actually care because is the equivalent of watching car races when you are a more or less competent driver yourself.
