    Because world firsts used to be a 30-40 hours per week deal.. now it has doubled in recent years to insanely unhealthy levels.
    Free-To-Play is the future.

    Race for world firsts is a competition. You have to do whatever can give you and your team an edge I guess.
    No... you really don't have to do whatever can give you and your team an edge... especially at the expense of your own health or somebody elses.

    You can want to do it... but you never, ever, ever HAVE to do it. :P

    Meh. I think it's a waste of time to be going for world firsts for raiding. You gain little to nothing from it and there's not much to be gained from actually getting world first except a bragging right that means little to nothing when you get older, if not it's semi shameful to have spent such an exorbitant amount of time on something that literally will not exist in the future due to it being an MMO where the servers will one day be shut down.

    These tables bar our way.. ┬──┬ ┬──┬

    These world first raiders put insane amounts of time and effort into the game because that's how they like playing. If that's what they enjoy then good for them. I personally wouldn't enjoy that at all but that doesn't mean I think they're stupid or lame or something. To each their own.

    30-40 hrs solid raiding is sane and healthy?

    Anyway, the number of bosses alone has doubled the last two tiers.

    100 years from now you and everyone you know will be dead and gone, what's the point in doing anything at all?

    It seems like I'll have to scan my prescription so I can be ready to send it to Blizzard next time I join a hardcore progress guild...

    You guys are cute.

    Its their lives, their bodies. I don't support the idea of using such substances, however its sad to think they are willing to push themselves so hard. Though I guess if you really want something you'll make whatever sacrifice you can to achieve it.

    Extremely good advice would be: "if you think about using that - don't, if we find out, we'll gkick". THAT is the only extremely good advice.

    Do you call charts that show where are speed radars placed so you can go speeding without being caught "extremely good advice" too?

    OH MY GOD.. 30-40 hours ?! Wouldn't they be able to develop carpal tunnel? :-\ That doesn't sound healthy...

    Not anymore- There is no more money made in wow when your #1/ sure you can sell runs for cash which a few guilds do, but u dont have to be no#1 for that. I know persoanlly Envy-eu makes tons of cash from sell runs ( thousands of euros, no lies) , but there is no legitimate money left to be made in wow if your #1.

    I didn't realize the prescriptions some of our raiders take was any business of the peanut gallery. The fact that we have a 9 page thread of what basically amounts to amateur medical advice based solely on biased assumptions about our guild is honestly ridiculous to the point where I'm surprised no mods have stepped in.

    Just because someone's taking adderall doesn't mean they're abusing it to stay awake; they take it because when they don't, they do stupid things like get distracted and proxy pull consorts two pulls in a row. People are welcome to hate us for whatever irrational reasons they choose, but we certainly don't deserve the special brand of vitriol reserved for doping athletes.

    We will just pretend Blizzard could know if players were or were not using any drugs. If some how in this fantasy land they could tell and started to ban players that used any drugs in this case legal ones. They would have almost nobody left. Would I take any sort of drugs to be better at a game, hell no, do I care if others pump their bodies full of shit, not really.

    Direct cash maybe not, but many of the players are sponsored on youtube and things like that. The better they do in pve or pvp means more viewers and as a result more sponsor money and interest.

    Lot of casuals in this thread who don't really know the game of wow all that much. 30-40 hours a week's a lot? Pretty standard game time during vanilla/BC

    edit: i mean total game time, not just raiding.

    Yep. If you get a heart attack from hearing that some guys are playing 30-40 hours a week, you shouldn't hear about the top 5 raid guild's progress schedule. Their schedule is closer to 15-20 hours a day.

    Well, if there's suddenly a fatality among the BL roster, we at least now know the true reason. This is insane.

    How is this anyone's business but the players involved? It's their choice and their right to fuck up their bodies in pursuit of whatever is important to them. If you don't like it then don't pay attention to it.

    Jesus, when did "mind your own fucking business" go out of style? You guys sound like a bunch of tabloid wannabes.
