Lets face it, right now the world first race in raiding is not competitive or really exciting as it may have once been. This is due to the extremes that the world first guild go through. Due to this extreme it has pushed Blizzard to really put in some very extreme fights in hopes of slowing down the race. The world first guilds are burning through content at record pace which has forced Blizzard to release content at a faster pace than they ever have had to. The community is always saying that the content is to easy and that is just not the case. Guilds are just putting far more time into the game. Over a 100 hours a week for the world top guilds during the world first race.
I believe that it would be healthy for the game if Blizzard would pull back on the world first guilds to slow their progression down and in that turn would bring more guilds into the race. This is how Blizzard could accomplish that. Blizzard should put in a max of 50 wipes per boss per week. How this would work is when a guild comes to a said boss and they wipe on it 50 times trying to progress through that boss every character on those players accounts would have to wait to the following week before they would be able to attempt the boss again. This would pull the number of attempts that the world first raiding guilds could do down forcing guilds to be much more efficient. This would also bring in a lot of guilds that are just as good as the world first raiding guilds but do not have the time to put in to stay in the race. This would create a much more competitive field and a longer race instead of this two man and one man sprints we have now.
I really hope that Blizzard would take this approach. It may not be popular with many of the people in the community, however it has been shown that what the player base wants is not what is always best for the game. I truly believe this would be a huge step in the right direction for the raiding community.
