    Ofc guilds like them finnish first since they surely did it several times on ptr. Still grats. But it would be better if blizz could test their bosses without open ptr realms. I don't like when some ppl can do it before its even out. Music is fine. Sounds a bit like celldweller for me.

    Pleasing as much as possible? With allr over 80 % of the player base not content, even if servers are still offline?

    Making millions of dollars... ye, im sure they did that once.. and maybe still now, by milking this game to the max with

    all these stupid pets / mounts / char possibilities. As said, wow is dying... milking it to the next big MMO

    So ye... blizz, u fail... or do i actualy fail for still paying ur sorry ass for extended maintenances and shitty new content.

    Is this realy the best you can come up with....
    why are you still playing wow if you don't like it? quit playing it and leave us alone if you don't want to play it anymore

    Q fucking Q

    Isn't Premonition like on par with Ensidia? As in, all their members are in full heroic gear thus basically out gearing the instance?
    Now if they where wearing ToC 25 (non heroic) I would be impressed.

    Good god you people are whiners! I bet half of the people complaining here don't even play anymore.

    I think the point is; if you have have 24 hours jump start it's not fair to say "world first". EU servers are still down, and for most of us will still be down for another 12 hours. Boubouille has put on the front page "US first kill", while Premanition go that extra mile and call it "world first kill."

    Just wondering, is there any special loot like mounts or whatever if you kill it on Heroic? Oh and is Heroic and normal mode the same lockout or is it seperate IDs?

    go blizz go, way to fail
    Will you just fuck off. You're talking about a guild that goes all out to get World First. They probably raided it to death on the PTR and did normal with alts (duplicates of mains) a few times before going for it.

    Even if it is easy, who the fuck cares? For god sakes, if you're after a head-banging, wrist-slitting difficult game, WoW isn't for you. It never was and never will be. It is a mass-market, mass-appeal game and I'm pretty sure Blizzard wants it that way. They may throw some hard encounters to the tiny percentage like Prem who live, breath and sleep WoW, but they know exactly who brings in the serious money.

    Now please, find something else to whine about because most of us couldn't care less.

    Jesus, I can't believe people are complaining about a world first for a filler content single boss encounter. Who fucking cares? Seriously.

    Yea congratz to the US! I don't wanna QQ about that fact that Europeans can't kill him yet. Halion is just phreelewt
  1. Algore's Avatar
    I won't say that Blizzard have made a fail instance or something but, they could atleast have opened the raid at the exact same time EU/US, due to world first etc.

    sad-panda .

    No d00d, wow is failz. Is that the best you can come up with? This game is clearly dying because Blizzard is making money off of pets and a guild that raided Halion on PTR was able to kill him in 10 man heroic on the first day. It's infallible evidence that makes complete sense in my head!

    Seems to be 25-man only. Couldn't discover them in the 10-man kill vid.
