You know I'm honestly surprised people do not believe that shit is another game lol hence we don't count them in the actual race.
That being said, the Asia WoW leaderboard should be linked in the same post that links the Non-Asia leaderboard. It's a different game and yea, it's objectively easier to do certain things (like beat HGAR10), but it's objectively harder to do other things. It should be up there in the same post, with a note that AsiaWoW and US/EU WoW have enough differences to make the world first race entirely separate.
also, noone outside china can read their names?
That's only because there's a language barrier. But that's surmountable.
What is hilarious is things like the Guo Lai Ruins (aka: Come Here Ruins).
ps: The Chinese guild's name is Apocalypse in English.

China armory is not providing API to fetch progress and character data
That's it I think. As to the logic, I don't understand it. I believe it's made on steoretypes rather than anything else, "asians game a lot" or some sort of bullshit. I don't know.
OH, OK. Is it illegal to do more than one attempt pr. week on a raid boss? I don't know how you raid, but when my guild wipe on a boss, we go back in and attempt one more time. And if we wipe again, we go back in to try one more time!
Of course, if Blizzard added some kind of attempt restriction on bosses in SoO, then I'm f*cking wrong.

Blizz finds out let's just say Blood Legion got 3 chances at the loot on the first 13 bosses of SoO next week, how long you think that guild will be banned for?
That's what the Asia servers get to do.
It's a different freaking game, let it go.
Now, how would you go about downing Garrosh multiple times prior to world first kill? If he meant that Asian guilds can do all bosses leading up to Garrosh multiple times a week, then maybe he shouldn't have included Garrosh as an example. You don't down H Garrosh for loot, so you can down H Garrosh for world first.
However, I stand corrected.
Asian realms have resets twice a week and split lockouts on 10 and 25. Asian realms have 25 man gear start at 2/4 upgrades so when a West guild gets gear at 566 ilvl to drop, they get it at 574. West guild can upgrade it to 574, they can upgrade it to 582. Their 25 mans are harder, but the world first was on 10 man from an Asian guild, so it was the same.
Also, how asian guild get it two resets and two lockouts twice a week they can get: 14 bosses that drop 2 pieces each = 28 pieces + 1 from Garrosh. 29 pieces in 10 man, twice a week is 58 pieces of gear. In 25 man they would get 5? pieces of gear + 1 on garrosh? I don't raid 25s. 14x5 = 70 + 2? from garrosh 72 pieces, 2 locksouts is 144 pieces. Now their 25 man gear comes at a higher ilvl and their 10 mans are the same as on west.
A US 10H guild gets a total of 29 pieces in one week. Asian guilds can get 202 pieces of gear in one week. Asian guilds gear up 7 times faster, and 80% of their gear is higher ilvl than ours. That is why they aren't counted in the world first race, specially in 10 mans.
The asian guilds just work harder than the others. The others could choose to work harder too but instead they choose to just exclude the asian guilds from their race. That's one way to be world "number one" I suppose. It's a bit like calling the world series winners "world champions" of baseball when they're really just US champions.
