    This thread will stay open until few other guilds have gotten heroic Garrosh kill.

    Refrain from all and any Asia vs the rest of the world discussion, it has no place here.

    Azshira Edit: ANY posts about the Asia vs EU/US debacle will be dealt with and harshly (you had 3 warnings now)

    has there ever been any thought to just letting the official world first threads be like the wild west, a pure FFA thread?, and just save yourselves the hassle like it only happens for 2 or 3 weeks twice a year. seems almost pointless to try and over moderate it when it always turns out to be such a shit show of 10v25 and all that nonsense.

    sorry for going off topic, but im actually kind of curious.

    The mods aren't necessarily in here checking every post, most likely people are reporting posts which they have to act on.

    I still don't know if I'm rooting for Method or Paragon... Seems like Method will bring this home though, based on their progression so far, but the Garrosh fight seems to be about the same in difficulty both in 10man and 25man compared to some other fights (like Thok 25man being a lot easier or Malkorok 10man being easier). I still think Paragon will down him with a lower ilvl though. Would've been more fair if Warforged gear got released like 2 weeks after the release of the raid instead of instantly or if 25man dropped warforged tokens after the last boss in the instance had been killed on your server or something like that.

    Yes. A lot easier since their 10mans are tuned easier and 25man drops better gear.

    You're quoting me things that are up to 5 years old lol. Look at what they have done this expansion and tell me how they feel like underdogs in it. They have been in the forefront the entire expansion, last tier especially Killing Lei Shen an entire reset before any other guild. I get what you're saying, they've had a lot of world 2nds . I kinda feel like quoting that list shows just how strong Method is though with world 1st and 2nd littered all over the place for years and now a lot of the competition has died out. However, I'm not sure things from 3 years ago are relevant at all here. In terms of what they have done this expansion over the past 12 months I really REALLY don't see how you could consider them an underdog for Garrosh, at all.

    More importantly, I guess, is who do you think they are underdogs to??

    I would say they're pretty similar.

    I have been following method since 5 years ago, started following the race after I read about Death and Taxes killing the four horsemen in Naxx 60. I didn't really take it seriously until I saw this:

    It's not that they actually are underdogs, they've clearly dominated this expansion, it just 'feels' like they're underdogs because of their perpetual world seconds for the first 4 years I followed them in the race.

    Raden was killed with 4 ilvl less by Sanitas and paragon (compared to Method ilvl at kill time), so 10 man is proly tuned with 4 ilvl less in mind which seems completely fair. But again its impossible to compare 10 and 25 since no guild can ever do them both in same time, however it seems they are pretty close : )

    IIRC he was undergeared and joined mid progression in ToT. But im sure his knowledge from his paragon raids helped alot.
    He left the 18th this month, so i guess he stayed there for the normal clear of SoO.

    ok, but who are the guilds that have beat them in the past 5 years that are still raiding today?

    nilhilum
    ensidia
    paragon
    the odd American guild on non end tier bosses..
    in what world can you possibly spin them as the under dog when none of the guilds that have beat them are even racing them anymore?

    I think they were more referring to the "recognition" he brought to their guild. Lot of people saw them and heard about them when he joined and streamed their raids and talked about them, etc.

    Not So Serious and Rapid Eye Movement both went from 10->25 during the lull-phase of ToT, as far as I know. Both have done extremely well so far, but you also have to keep in mind that both guilds raid *alot*. As mentioned earlier, extensions, added days etc are always part of the races among the "top" guilds, and both NSS/REM are already "6 days" guilds with ~25+ hour schedules (before extensions and added days) according to their officall statements.

    Don't get me wrong at all, both guilds are extremely good and it's fucking awesome to see that "newcomers" actually have a chance even in todays game (on that note, does anyone know what the story about TG gaming is? last tier they were ranked west 222, now they're in the top 10, would love to hear what happened - is it the old Pulse re-incarnated?) - but it does kind of emphasize the fact that as long as your guild is in the top 50-100, adding more hours is enough to shoot you up the ranks .

    Not 100 % sure but I think most of the Pulse member left that guild and formed TG Gaming, they're doing really great this time.
