It is a fact that Method rose through the rankings finishing ahead of guilds such as Ensidia, For the Horde, Premonition etc.
Blood Legion (Besides in Dragon Soul when the EU guilds were banned) have never finished ahead of Paragon, Ensidia, Premonition, For The Horde, Stars.
Blood Legion have NEVER finished ahead of a big name guild, EVER. Check for yourself, look through Wowprogress and look at all the guilds below Blood Legion. There is no 'Big' guilds below them.
The only big guild Blood Legion has finished ahead of was Method back in one tier in ICC. Which bring me to my point. When Method have rose through the ranks they have done it by finishing AHEAD of a higher ranking guild in the next tier. When Blood Legion did it, it was because a guild ahead of them disbanded or left WoW.
This is all fact, go check it out for yourself.
So basically Method earned their way to the top by beating the competition. Blood Legion got to second by staying the same and waiting for everyone ahead of them to drop out. This is all fact and the previous tier results are on Wowprogress before the Blood Legion fanboys call me a troll/lier.
well by that logic, method never beat nihilum, or paragon until they disbanded or went 10man. so i don't know what point your trying to prove.
This defending why Blood Legion didnt win again is never getting old, after all these years its still funny. Despite them having headstart always they always end up being 2nd or 3rd. They had a weeks headstart and that didnt help them either in Cata. Still cracks me up when people try to defend them for no reason or need. They are a very good guild, but not no1.
They arent the No1 Guild and wont be until Method disbands, switches to 10m or such. They just gotta outlive others and theyre doing fine with that.
Paragons seem even crazier than siegecrafter, but things do not seem to deal as much damage. But that might as well be just down to near perfect execution :O
Siegecrafter is more about strat I think, Paragons more about execution, lots of stuff to avoid dying to on that boss. I think Siegecrafter was a better and more fun fight but Paragons took more pulls (for us at least), so it might be harder in a certain sense. Not sure how other guilds went in that sense.
I think as more videos come out we'll see less strat variation with Paragons at least. I think there's only a couple of small variations on orders you could have, like doing Hisek or Korven third, and Kaztik or Iyyokuk 6th.
If Garrosh doesn't die on 10man this week, Method should go 10man tomorrow, clear it WF and shit all over Paragon to really finish MoP in style.
I heard them joke about that last night after their kill, but I hope they don't. It means I'll have to avoid the forums for a few weeks so my head doesn't explode reading the threads lol. Plus I think it would just be in bad taste.
Willing to bet Paragon swaped to 10's because they were more easy (they thought) and figured getting 10man world first would be easier than 25... ooops Should have stuck with 25man guild guys!
GZ Method but it's not a world first. But yeah GZ on the EU FIRST 25. Waiting for US 25, EU 10, US 10 now.
They said themselves they prefer 25 (you can find many members saying it on many occasions) but going into MoP they couldn't field a strong enough 25m roster to stay competitive. Considering they were widely considered the best guild at the end of Wrath and throughout Cata (where 10 and 25 were also the "same" like they are now) yet they stayed 25 man. Not sure why you would assume they went 10 just because the world firsts would be a lock, pretty dumb theory IMO.
Edit: I'm gonna go with BL for US 25, Avast for US 10 and Paragon for EU 10.
