Thanks for the salt mining thread wowhead, the tears of sore losers are great
Man...those heroic/mythic carries really paid off, I suppose.
And for what?
Why do I think more than a little skill was involved, too?
I feel like they should get rid of BoEs and find a way to limit splits, at least till the race is over. The whole concept is dumb pay2win garbage. If you want raiders to have some bonus income here and there, there's other ways to do it besides boes. This would go a long way to narrowing the gap between Limit/Echo and the other top 10 guilds who can't spend hundreds of millions of gold. If you look at Limit's ilvl when they got sire kill, they were just way ahead of most of the rank 3-10 guilds at that time. Obviously, Limit and Echo are also the most skilled guilds, but the item gap needs to be broguht down to make a more exciting race.
All this shows is that the level of absurdity required to do this should prevent most groups from attempting it. Hopefully they can make it up with sponsorship deals on the next race.
You know blizzard released a gold token, £17 for 166,000 (server dependant)which means 249,000,000 gold is £25,500.So they made £30k+ by running doing 'in-game activities'?So naive.
it's really shameful to have to pay for a win.. I think a new category needs to be put in place for Mythic kills. A Pay to Win Category, where players are allowed to be decked out in BoEsand a category where BoEs are banned.The first guild to actually put in honest work of progression and grinding their characters up to clear mythic are the true world's first imo.. not pathetic guilds like Limit who paid their way to victory.
Blizzard if your reading which you probably arent... Remove all BoE's from Raids or limit BoE's highest relevant world drop which would been like 190 or somewhere in that range...Problem solved.
