    In my opinion, beta and ptr is a HUGE blizzard fail. The way they contact the beta tests shows pure greed and incompetence . Instead of hiring a decent beta testing team they ruin the game experience by making extensive and detailed beta versions of the game. And then people are talking about world firsts and other misguided nonsense... not convincing or interesting enough for me

    You still have no idea how profoundly ignorant this comment of yours is

    And... only a few care but gz anyway i guess lol. Man the US/KR and other places who get the raids first must suck so bad just look at that leader board. It's like a 12h lead and they still cant win.

    When asked "why didn't you bring class X?", their shaman said: "Our roster consists of 21 players, we can't swap around much, we work with what we have."

    Why is that more sad than people playing loads of pvp / garrisons / pet battles or WoW...hell..any videogame? In fact I find it less sad than watching TV series like "Two and a half" man or reality soaps....

    It's ridiculous that the hardest content can be cleared the 1st week its open, even if it is by the best players the game has.
    Thy started the race in ilv 655 or so gear...less than other guilds. The bump obviously came from the gear that dropped?

    As for your other point: They can clear that content, because those guilds are indeed THE BEST. And because beating these bosses needs insane skill over gear. Is that not how it should be?

    Everything else would involve some kind of gating, including gating it behind a dps requirement that can only be achieved in full BiS. (like Lich King, who also had a 50 attempt limit)

    Which offers the next problem: Nobody except the best 10-20 guilds could clear mythic if involves both: Insane skill and mythic BiS gear. I am sure some people would like this concept, others would be so frustrated that they drop raiding when they cleared heroics.

    I know, right? The first thing I do when I get home from work is go into my bedroom and work on my cure for cancer. After my dinner I go out in the streets and help old ladies cross the road. When the sun sets I put on my cape and tights and go out and fight crime. I only have three hours of sleep before it's back into work.
    The actual temerity of these guys of not only playing a video game but being better than most others at it in their leisure time astounds me.
