So much wrong info in this thread.
Of course those selling runs won't give you a better time than they had with their own full group, since you're not as good as them, needing to pay for it in first case, so it will be slower than what they can do with a good player.
If somebody pay for it, they should know somebody else will pay the day after for the same title. Doubt people want to pay 2-300k for a one day title.
If you finally do it from the start of the expansion, why should you have a permanent title for just being the first that ever completed it on gold. It's not really a big challenge.
Only thing really helping in challenge runs is more sockets, andthe prismatic legendary socket, which surely is a good thing, but you get that even from lfr.
Good thing about this is people will keep competing more than before.
