Or way too hard, then #1 beats him, and they nerf the boss to the ground and the other 9 out of top 10 guilds get him down the day after. Kil'jaeden, except not as exaggerated as I'm putting it here.

 

Method surely did dislike how Blizzard nerfed KJ just after they finally managed to beat him.

 

But yes, you're right. Either it's going to be "uhhh guys, this is Xavius all over again" or "Is this even mathematically possible?". With a metric ton of bugs and Ion afterwards explaining in an interview "We had hundreds of hours of playtesting".

Understandably so, IMO. I'd be pretty annoyed by it too, since you probably want to see how long it takes others on that level playing field.

      Limit's Guild Master @maximumwow talked about the guild's potential streaming of the race in the future and went into a pretty in-depth explanation of the potential consequences for the race and how it could impact them specifically, bringing it all back to the Method/Serenity split. It's a very interesting and honest clip that brings into question whether the guild will actually stream (as it was previously generally stated that they would) and absolutely worth a watch.

      He also went on to clarify a tricky/easily misunderstood thing he said in the above clip:
      While we now have a lot of the top guilds streaming their progress, Limit's inclusion would be a big one as they're fairly certain to remain on the top of the US/OC part of the race, and since there's a whole day/16 hours in which no one else has access to the raid it's definitely be a popular addition, but as mentioned above could impact the race.

      Feathers is a new battle pet that you can get by completing a short questline in Patch 8.1.5 that takes place in Tanaris.
      Mechanical Feather was added in Patch 8.1 and we also datamined a matching Mechanical Parrot mount in Patch 8.1 Build 28294 that's still not available to this day, maybe it's being saved for Mechagon and Patch 8.2?

      Animations

      Feathers Questline
      A new questline was added in Patch 8.1.5 that rewards a battle pet called Feathers. Both factions will be able to get the pet. We completed the questline on the Horde side, where Jastor Gallywix sends you to kill a Goblin located in Tanaris.
      Whatever Happened to Grizzek Fizzwrench?
      Gallywix wants you to locate and kill Grizzek Fizzwrench in Tanaris.
      Gazlowe appears right after you leave the ship and tries to strike another deal with you.
      After investigating Waterspring Field in Tanaris, you come across a Mechanical Parrot that's broken.
      Some Reassembly Required
      Collect 100 Mechanical Parts from Venture Co. scavengers to fix Feathers.
      Re-Parrot
      Now that Feathers is fixed, it's time to debug his recall program to trace Grizzek Fizzwrench.
      When you begin debugging, Feathers will go haywire. You'll gain access to three abilities that need to be pressed in exact order, based on the text that appears on screen.
      The debugging process should finish.
      Return to the Nest
      Activate the recall subroutine to find Fizzwrench.
      He's Dead, Jastor
      Feathers will lead yu to Grizzek Fizzwrench and Saffy. Now, you're asked to tell Jastor Gallywix that he's long dead and you can keep the bird.
      Return to Zandalar Harbor and speak to Gallywix.
      Now talk to Gazlowe to claim your pet!
      Mechanical Feather
      “Thought to be lost in a massive explosion, the smartest of engineers were able to rebuild Feathers into a magnificent mechanical creation.”
