MMO-Champion - Rated BGs Award Honor at Conquest Cap, Magmaw World First Kill
Mini update for today's official announcement, I'm still going through most of the submissions from the guide contest and should be done in a few hours. After that, I'll announce the winners and release their guides on the front page over the next few days to keep you guys busy during the holidays. I might end up offering a few more prizes than intended ...

Also, if you were late and couldn't send your guide before the deadline. Send them in PM, you won't qualify for the contest but if the guide is very very awesome I might consider extra minor prizes. (I insist on the "very awesome")

Rated BGs Now Award Honor at Conquest Cap

Those not at their cap will continue to earn Conquest normally, and will only earn Honor once they reach their weekly cap.

Whether you’re capped and others on your team aren’t, or you’re all capped and just want to keep playing, we hope this change will allow more flexibility for those participating in Rated Battlegrounds.

    let me rephrase so you understand what i'm saying, i dont say its too easy, all i'm saying is being the first is fine if theres a competition going on, being the first while the other top guilds are on break chillaxing isnt worth as much

    the dude i was talkin to, was measuring the diffculty of those heroic bosses by the time it took to get them killed and thats just wrong over winterbreak, all i'm saying is lets see how long they'll last in the new year when every top guild is dedicated to downing them no matter what.
    Rephrased this says, "I'm a huge fanboi of another top end guild and am butt hurt that they aren't getting any world first's so I'm going to make excuses on their behalf."

    OR

    Rephrased this says, "I'm a member of another top end guild that is butt hurt we aren't getting world firsts and going to make excuses why we are unable to."

    In either case, grats to Method for being the current #1 guild and cry more to the OP.

    EDIT: Oh yeah I forgot to mention that other top end world first guilds are definitely not trying as hard. /sarcasm

    Only one (top) guild was chillaxing last night so it`s not hard figuring out where this is coming from

    Too bad Arenas don't give honor. Other than "possibly" increasing your rating/conquest cap for next week, there isn't much incentive to do Arenas instead of bgs once you've gotten to cap. Which is a shame because I like Arenas...

    I like the speed they have been going at, they are top end guilds they might have taken a break on Christmas and a couple days around that but not enough to slow every single guild down except method.

    Its obvious its harder because look at wrath content, most of it, except ulduar, was cleared by these guilds on heroic withing the first 2-3 days excluding the end boss or sometimes including it. I cant wait to see how long it takes for the world first sinestra kill.

    Because farming the content requires SOME gear at least.

    I'd just like some proof, judging from that killshot, that this wasn't an exploit.
    I'm guessing you frapsed it, just release the last 60 seconds of the fight to prove your innocence, please. Otherwise this is beyond pathetic.

    I'd also like to know which font that is, but also I like how one of the guys off to the right there has the "Scarab Lord" title. That's definitely a title to run around with.

    While it is definitely an exagerration to refer to raiding in beta as putting these encounters on "farm" status once the content goes live, it would be totally remiss to not consider how huge an advantage it was to be raiding this stuff in the beta.

    Because we handled loot before the screenshot, and because we still have a hard time getting everyone in line for a screenshot, the boss despawned on us before the shot was taken
    The fight was frapsed and ventrillo was recorded. We enjoyed this encounter a lot and will release the first kill video (including nerdscreams) in the future.

    I know you're super busy, Boub, but can you give a slightly more specific idea of what's going on with the guides? Are you deleting the ones that didn't win or are you just moving them around? It makes some of us who put alot of effort into our a guides a little nervous to think you might just be deleting them. D:

    What I found interesting about this is that Magmaw - who is surely one of the easiest bosses on normal mode - turned out to be the 7th boss killed on hardmode. Interesting to see that the jump in difficulty on Magmaw must be greater than it is on some of the other bosses, e.g Chimaeron.
