I've spent a long time reading posts on this website much to my delight. I have always been able to count on these forums to brighten up my day with the humor brought on by the constant barrage of trolling, ePeen flexing and bickering over who is better than who, US vs. EU, blah blah. I personally have never really cared what guild got "world firsts" etc. I will admit it's nice to see different guilds on the top recently than it has been in the past. I have the utmost respect for ALL guilds future, present and past who've accomplished the high end encounter/achievement "World Firsts" and all the bickering about exploits, trying to make a case for getting World Firsts removed, etc. is plain nonsensical. I applaud anyone who has the creativity to figure out a way to "win" using what Blizzard has put IN THE GAME to utilitize. Whether it be circumventing game mechanics, class abilities, or "stacking a particular class" (yea I lmao when I heard someone QQ about Premo's raid makeup), as long as it's something that is within the game, regardless how cheap it is, it's fair game until Blizzard addresses it in their own way via hotfix, etc.
Now, as I mentioned before, I've never been a GO US, BAD EU, or whatever person. Grats to Paragon, Stars and Premo for their Anub Kills so far. I don't care if you did or if you didn't do any of the above mentioned things to achieve your kill. A kill is a kill... PERIOD! I've read so much US vs. EU, good vs. evil, "you suck, no YOU SUCK" crap it's amazing. My only comment really is that I ask why when Paragon killed Anub, it was posted within MINUTES on MMO-CHAMPION.COM's front page then the same thing with the STARS kill...it makes front page yet a few hours after the downed him yet when the World 3rd kill occurs (a US First Kill), and it's even with a much higher level of attempts left, not to mention the Heroic: A Tribute to Skill Achievement (World 1st)... we still have not one mention of it on the Front Page and the only real data on it is on the forums.
So what gives??? Why is the US being left out of this newsworthy accomplishment? I'm sure I'll get the "QQ U.S. FANBOY" comments which is fine, yes I'm a US Player big deal. I just don't understand why Premonition isn't getting any love? No I'm not a Premo suckup, as stated above I could care less what Country, Continent or Ethnic Vagina a guild popped out of, it would have just been nice to see a US guild get a little attention for a change since the EU guilds have been on top for awhile.
Just my two cents worth...flame/troll on!
