We’re working on a hotfix that will make the “Something Different” quest complete in the Classic Ashran brawl when you either win any event, or kill Grand Marshal Tremblade / High Warlord Volrath.

Conflict and Strife Rank 2 Acquisition Hotfix

I pose this question because I only got rank one in my pvp chest and from my perspective it’s an error.

Correct. We had a bug, and we’ve now hotfixed it. We’re working to address the issue for players who already opened it. Thank you! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

The hotfix for this is now live. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Same thing happens every time, US guilds get "first" kills and then EU catch up and wipe the floor

    The world first race is dumb. Well, for most people it is.

    Now that they artificially removed the idea of Method getting 1st every single time, they can be 1st again, right?

    I tried watching the race to world first, but the video lag/stutter/brief pauses turned me off.

    It's not a race when some are granted a head-start. It won't be till everyone is on the same level.

    While this is true and really should have been permanently changed over a decade ago, when was the last time the head-start actually helped a US guild get world first? I imagine people will be up in arms if it leads to a US guild getting a world first but it isn't like that has happened since Ruby Sanctum, where Blizz tried to open the raid in both the US and EU at the same time anyway.

    I don't see any reason to? It is hard to describe how teasing and taunting it is to see it advertised as open and waiting here and in the launcher only to login and be denied access.

    Guess you should move to NA then and stop crying about something that's been a thing since 2004. Imagine crying about that, something that's been a thing since the dawn of the game

    Just because something has been a thing for a long while doesn't make it immune to any sort of criticism.
