    Limit had to deal with more maintainences and bugs. Also their videos were public method litterally saw how to best kill every boss.

    I dont think method has the dps requirements. Watching a few pulls this morning where limit phased and method phased is a good 5-10% difference. Like when limit gets to the gateway to secret phase they were pushing 40-42% method is sitting around 50%. P1 burn Limit was getting 84-86% Method struggling to get out of 90's

    At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Pieces or a Chinese guild got world 2nd.
    Yes, that's kinda how head starts work...

    No, the goal post will now change to: "The fight is boring and overtuned, not a real encounter because Nya'lotha wasn't a real raid. Method lost but only because Blizzard fucked up."

    oh that was done already. I'm just waiting for more goalposts shifts.

    You could have given EU the 16 hour head start this time and Method would probably still have lost, given their current progression rate. Obviously if they pick up in the next 16 hours and kill it I would be wrong, but again, 16 hour head start doesn't mean much when you waste much of that waiting for Blizzard to fix their shit

    I see more posts complaining/mocking the supposedly outraged Method fans than those actual fans. Which is pretty much the same thing that happened in previous tiers with Limit, making up non-existant salty people and triumphantly defeating their arguments. Must feel nice to beat up the strawmen you personally set up.

    I don't believe that this counts as "just keep winning".
    The point is, for them it very much did count. It delayed the inevitable and in many ways worsened it.

    At what point do we start seeing Limit selling carries in trade to pay back the Illidan gold mafia?

    Yet the comments continue, that Method lost because of the head start.

    They are probably going to rest a bit, then get comfortable with Mythic with sub optimal groups before they do. I suspect within a month they will be on carry raids. As cloaks improve and gear improves, they will be able to shift from perfect razer edge play to being able to carry a dead slot.
    We live in an era of "me versus them", an era where something is done that you don't like means you are personally attacked. People whine too much.
    Let us play video games and be happy.

    It's a psychological thing as well. You wake up and most of the raid is already dead before you even have the chance to start. It's stupid and not a real race to begin with.

    You guys are starting to make some hypothetical scenarios of people saying stuff just so you can get mad about it.

    I love how the "they had a headstart" statement changes with how the race turns out. If Method would have won it would have been another "lul NA had a headstart and could not win" moment.

    Yeah because for the last 3 expansions Method has clearly been demotivated to the point that they just got WF out of sheer boredom.

    Like, really?

    This has nothing to do with Method. Just some facts. If you can't handle them - that's your problem.

    Method does this every time some Method member achieve something. I know its hard to understand but 4 Limit players work for Method organization. Nothing special here.

    Once the internet facilitated the downloading of patches, games started to be shipped out before they were complete. Now it is release, patch for X months instead of spending X months to make sure it is properly done.

    I wonder if those players will now make a permanent shift to Limit now that they are a legit e-sport organization. From what I understand, Shakib and Darkee (and JdotB) are based in NA. I can imagine they signed up with Method because they were the only game in town in the past.
