    Not sure how these guys can win despite getting the patch 1 day later, that's an absurdly huge handicap at elite level, and they still overcome it. Gz and well played.

    They really need to start launching patches and content universally. Every other MMO out there does.

    come on now, can't be expecting that from such a small indie company like Blizzard Entertainment, it would push all 5 of their remaining workers too far.

    its much less of a handicap then most people understand. While its certainly not an advantage, it comes with perks of getting to learn from those ahead of you. We see it most tiers where essentially the top guilds kinda leap frog pas each other again and again after each days prog while the other sleeps. In most races the guild that kills the last boss first played better. Sometimes IE Raz blizzard hands the win off by hotfixing a major nerf while only 1 guild is raiding in a super tight race. But others like both sark and fyrakk the raid team with better overall play takes the cake.

    edit: side note I would like to see a global release and echo to stream coms like liquid though.

    Even if the patch drops at the same time for everyone, someone will get an upper hand simply because time zones. Patch dropping at 12 AM or at 9 AM is basically almost the same thing unless the players from that region fuck up their sleep schedule.

    Apparently, this is the first time a Feral druid has been featured in a world-first final boss kill on Mythic difficulty, since the previous occurrence happened before Mythic difficulty even existed, all the way back in SoO. Which is both neat and kinda sad.

    Of course the only way Echo can win is if Blizz patches the boss for them cuz it's they find it too hard. Did it for Raszageth and now for Fyrakk. We saw what happens when they don't have Blizz rigging the fight cough Sarkareth cough.

    "Gz" Echo I guess.

    Yep, that's true for most people. Not these teams though, they will adjust their sleep schedule for the next 2 weeks as required. These "Raid for World First" events are really just Liquid or Echo, there's no real other competitor. I'd assume if either team quits, the race would pretty much die as there wouldn't be any proper competitor left.

    Now comes the suffering for the other 90% of Mythic guilds that'll progress in an overtuned raid made for RWF guilds.

    Didn't they nerf 4% off the boss health when European guilds were about to go to sleep, leaving Liquid all of their effective raiding time to take advantage of it?

    Yet they didn't and Echo took the kill the next day after a few very close pulls. Mentioning this as if it had any impact is quite dishonest, because the win was literally handled to Liquid, and they failed to take it. Glad that Liquid aren't sore losers and publicly congratulated Echo for playing better. Some of their fans could take notes.

    On a different note, seems like this will be the first expansion in about 10 years that doesn't have a secret mythic only phase in a final boss. Pretty surprising but the fight was pretty well designed as it is anyway.

    This makes me wonder, do any raiding guilds (like ever lol) take any ret paladins for dps? I cant remember even 1 time that happened. Same goes for in game. Serious guilds never have free spots for them, just when its alt gearing time they get a spot lol. Its pretty funny how everyone wants new classes every expansion, but we got whole dps class that is barely usable (outside of fans and for fun) Actually, there are quite a few specs that seem to be underperforming in raids or mythics. I didnt notice that in Shadowlands or BFA, it seems more of a Dragonlands kind of thing.

    P.s. Gz btw, i just watched the video!
