    I was a Paragon fan back then and at least that was kind of boring when they always won by like a week. It might've still been interesting to follow their thought process in progress, but not even close to as interesting as watching two guilds doing neck to neck progress.

    Probably about the same amount as those that think vaccines are bad, the election was stolen, 911 was a government conspiracy, or that the earth is flat.

    There have been some guilds that could have rivaled Method/Echo in the past, but Limit was the first guild to actually beat them, not only once, but twice.

    Obviously this happened after the whole Method split fiasco, but Limit's performance has been impressive nonetheless.

    I guess I speak for most Wow oldboys here, it's good when there's more competition obviously, and I'm sure even the players wouldn't have it any other way.

    Edit: I meant after Paragon quit and Method took the lead.

    The issue is that the boss is so close to dying, limit will either just get their vault, heroic KT/Sylv splits and extend (I think this is what they'll do) and kill it before Echo even gets maintenance, or have time to do a full reclear and have so much extra gear they kill her within 5 pulls.

    If this doesn't die before limit wake up its going to be so fucking drama filled lol
    Bad reading......I never said "extra time" anywhere

    Wondering when we'll see a Sylvanas kill without 2 Priests.
    Right now every Guild except for Pieces is running 2. Jeathe (Echo) said it might take a while for it to happen (see: nerfs, increased iLvls) due to how strong they are.
    Same was said about Druids due to their Roar and how it makes a tremendous difference. (Albeit not to the extend as how Priests dominate Sylvanas).

    Of course it's a lot better. Seeing one guild outperform every other is nice from time to time, like Usain Bolt who kicked some asses very violently for a short period of time, it lets you in awe ; but after some time you want a challenger to come in and push the champion to its limits.

    The race now is insane with the competitivity it has, and everything is streamed... Tell that to our selves 6 years ago, we would not believe it.

    Tbh we should have seen that coming the minute Limit had their race hosted from the Cowboys HQ.

    Nobody in that building has won anything since the 90's.

    youre right they just needed domination gems
    so if the US would have killed it at say 2am would you be whining about the advantage or admitting they won

    I don't get the reference. Is it the Texas american football team?

    Imagine having a head start and still losing. Oh NA, you do amuse me so.

    Yeah, the owner of Complexity also owns the Dallas Cowboys.

    They've been choke artists since the 90s. @Crissi can tell you all about it.

    That was an entertaining event, as always. I watched quite a bit of Limit's stream last night, and honestly, Limit needs to work on the consistency of their performance. They literally lost this race because they couldn't get consistent enough performance once the entire fight was figured out. Given where Limit was, the boss should have been dead before Echo woke up.

    All that said, Echo proved once again just how good their team is. The fact that they won despite the NA 16-hour headset is remarkable. If there was a global release, this race wouldn't have even been close. That's how good Echo is.

    Except its a bad take cause they were at the Gamestop Center for now the last 3 races. Nyalotha introduced the concept of Pit Gang, and that was at the Complexity\Gamestop Center as well.
    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 also a joke, and a dig at the Cowboys, don't overanalyse it =p

    Still impressed about Method possibly being world third, I think that next expansion they may try to fight again for the throne for real.

    I get it, I don't follow sports at all. But I love the fact that they are playing at the center.

    A different thing:


    Can we for once kill the toxicity. None of the guilds are throwing it at each other, its just a small subset of vocal fake fans that just want to cause uproar for no reason. Max is literally getting hate comments on his youtube right now cause of the RWF.
