I think the devs ought to stop trying to fix world first raiding problems at the expense of every other mythic raiding guild. Terrible idea.
As a Mythic raider myself, I, personally, don't like simultaneous release. I'd be perfectly happy with Mythic coming out the week after Normal/Heroic, but I'd like a week to just chill and do the easy versions of the raid before immediately jumping into Mythic.
How would we feel? 99,9% of the players couldn't care less. Stop taking the entire thing so seriously is the answer here Ion. For the players this should be a game nothing more. Stop listening to players that treat it like a job.Real question is why do you time-gate LFR?
As a CE raider in a world 400 ish guild, I don't like this at all.The normal/heroic week is there so people can get familiar with the fights without the pressure of instantly knowing every single mechanic on Mythic.
I don't care either way, as I don't do Mythics. I'm not against alt funneling either, as I hear some people get paid hefty amounts to include alts of those big guilds on their runs. I never particularly benefited from that, but I don't want to take away that possibility from other people.
If it means releasing all three earlier rather than later, then I'm for it. Otherwise it doesn't seem like it would really benefit anybody besides the first-chasing tryhards that already run it as fast as they possibly can, the instant they can. I think the world first races being stuff that people do professionally/for huge monetary prizes is maybe an indicator that there is a problem with how raids are approached.I'd rather they focus on making the raids fun to play, not on how to make them harder or satisfy achievement hunters. You can make a fun raid harder, you can't make a hard raid more fun. Nathria was fun as hell, and seemed to be enjoying itself the whole time. Sanctum and Sepulcher seemed to be focusing pretty heavily on just being brutal more than they did interesting or fun. Halondrus and Anduin were nightmares that literally destroyed guilds, The Jailer was a massively difficult disappointment, et cetera.
people are claiming they dont care, but if they realized this means they get to start the raid a week earlier on LFR many of them probably would... everyone is focusing on how this change affects mythic but honestly im tired of LFR being looked at as second hand raiding when sometimes normal pugs are less organized and successful than raidfinder which is really sad.i actually find raidfinder to be better than normal, if any difficulty is the black sheep its normal, it doesnt feel like it has a place with heroic essentially already being normal and mythic being hardmode, the extra split in the middle is meaningless.wow's difficulty scaling for raids atm is easy, medium, extra medium, and hard.what do you mean extra medium blizz?
I think the way MYthic is designed needs a complete overhaul. Player power should stop at Heroic, and Mythic should be for title, mounts and transmog.
*doesn't see LFR mentioned*and like that you've lost me
Honestly don't care. Release them months apart for all I care.
Simultaneous raid release, but to get into mythic a member of your raid has to have killed the last boss on heroic first. So if you clear heroic on raid night 1 you can then jump into mythic on raid night 2 in week 1
