Okay, we won't.
All 9 feats that I got were done in a sale with a guardian druid tank. Stop blaming class for your incompetence.
I know it sucks for the people that have put ina ton of hours, but the titles were a TERRIBLE idea in the first place.
They should never give that type of reward to something that is so comp dependent that some classes just stand no chance over other classes. Blizzard has literally given up balancing challenge modes.
Vengeance is still the way it was on release.
Monks dont have their 20% nerf.
Some classes will simply never be optimal for challenge modes due to how the class plays. Melee dps and certain specs like moonkins will not be competitive with the better classes/specs due to lack of aoe damage and mobility. That will still not make you unavailable from getting a time at least within 2 minutes of every top time with any comp you like. You haven't played enough CMs, especially not in an aim towards fast times, if you think it is that streamlined. There are still strategies evolving in a lot of dungeons as of today and they have been out for over a year now. Still, only a few ones have been next to perfectly executed. High end PvP plays out the same way and is narrowed down to a few classes/specs but there are still gladiators with odd class or spec choices.
It's mainly that it is easy enough if you are planning to go for times to actually just prepare a new alt and get the bis gear straight from LFR so anyone competent enough would just re roll instead of playing a suboptimal spec. It's all about minmaxing.

It's not the hours people have put into it so far that should be considered, it's just a ridiculously terrible business decision to not have the titles be permanent. People WOULD have spent thousands of hours working on outdoing each other, accumulating more and more hours as WoD drew closer and closer, to be the last group standing on each realm with the best times to be one of the 5 people per realm to keep the titles.
Blizzard just threw those thousands of hours in the garbage and guaranteed that going forward people will save several thousand hours spent before that even ...... incredibly stupid business decision. Whoever came up with the idea I'll assume will eventually get fired but should also be sued by Blizzard for costing them a big chunk of profit.
I'm assuming it's someone with an online business school degree .... or perhaps (gasp) someone with no business degree at all.
it would be EXTREMLY stupid to have the titles remained as there is currently a bug which lets you put 9 people in a dungeon, but only the 5 original people will be awarded the dungeon credit.
Yeah, soo it's kind of retarded for these titles to go into WoD.
Well you will get your titles...when other gets their flying sorry
On my server nobody is even trying for the titles since they're on such lockdown by one team that nobody has a shot at it. That team therefore never had to defend said title. I'm sure they're crying in their sleep over thousands of hours wasted holding that title.Blizzard just threw those thousands of hours in the garbage

If you ever had a realm-best time, no matter how brief, you will get the special "Mistwalker" title.
Realm first titles are and have always been bad because there is too much variance between realms. The threshold is not equal. This is why the challenge mode titles were a bad idea in the first place, not even taking into account the class balance.
I think the common title for whoever achieved a realm first title is a good solution. There are also the achievements, even though it's silly how they got added mid-expansion.
Realm best titles?
You mean those times that were "exploited" with the absurd scaling of warlocks in the start of MoP?
And, they're removing the titles not the feats. Who gives a flying fornication if you have 9 more titles you'll never use. It's those sweet sexy feats that really matter and they're not going anywhere. Besides we're getting new ones in Orc-land, likely several, because it sounds like they're fully embracing this CM Season thing. Which is super boss.
I'd prefer my orcs to stand up straight.
The titles will go away, sorry, but Blizzard always says they were temporary!
I wish they wouldn't remove them. I'm 6x9/9 (nearly 8x) and still, I wish they wouldn't remove them.
They should make the mog gear obtainable by other means at least.

want to keep titles there is simple solution, give everyone chance to get them before the "end of season"
for example gate of the settings sun has 13min gold timer, if person finish in 8min or less (number subject to change) he will get the title.
same way that the top % gladiator break down or w/e
it will allow for fair competition rather then "look at me i can get best timer on realm cus im class X"

That's why so many people look smart until they start talking."
