Global Semi & Grand Finals

In semi-finals, Premonition lost to Honestly 1-2 and Free Marsy defeated Raider.IO with a final score 2-1. Both Premonition and Raider.IO won $10,000 USD.

The final showdown (Best of 5 series) between Honestly and Free Marsy was tied until the very end. The Arcway was the deciding dungeon. Honestly had 5 deaths that added 25 seconds to their timer, but overall, they had an edge over Free Marsy up to the last boss.freemarsy.JPG

Honestly, just from the clips I've seen, about the shortcuts we've seen and the Feral Druid upset, I want to pay more attention to the next tournament. It's really fun to watch, and kinda hypes me up to play more Mythic+ dungeons myself.

Unfortunately, the finals of the very first MDI were marred by bugs and some slight unprofessionalism. OK, it was the very first time, it was merely an invitational but you would expect slightly better organisation by a company as big and experienced as Blizzard.

The viewership throughout the MDI was much bigger than any of the Arena events, showing that people are really interested on this and a PVE race is something they have been asking for a while. It's a pity that the first MDI didn't produce a 100% undeniable and legitimate winner.

I've summarised what happened in the spoiler tag:

In Halls of Valor, Free Marsy wipes on the very first pull. They cannot release because one of the two observers got himself into combat with some flying drakes. Given that it is in its beginning, it is decided to restart the whole run. However, Honestly wipes this time, whereas Free Marsy has a clean run.

In Upper Kara, Free Marsy are ahead but they wipe before/at last boss. Again, observer was in combat so they couldn't release. They wait 2 minutes 20 seconds (run back to last boss takes less time) before the observer decides to ress them on the spot, outside the door to the last boss and not where you normally respawn. Like I said, they were ahead already but they had also skipped a couple of mobs on the way to the last boss, which may have cost them time if they had run back.

Some say Free Marsy would have still won, others feel Honesty were cheated. I am not taking sides here, just stating the issues. These were some pretty tight runs, a couple of the dungeon finishes were within seconds of each other. I am just saying that the prestige of the whole event was hurt by this.

      The Gallywix boosting community is pretty well known in WoW, featuring many players from top guilds engaging in gold boosts, but now it seems they've been dabbling in real money gold selling as well, and Blizzard isn't having it. As the actions are against the Terms of Service, Blizzard has started banning accounts related to the real money boosting activities. While the focus is on Gallywix, the investigation is still ongoing and might target other RMT boosting services as well.
      Gallywix Bans (source)
      After performing a thorough investigation, we’ve identified that the Gallywix boosting organization has been taking part in gold selling for real money. Real money trading – also known as RMT – is a serious violation of our End-User License Agreement and is not tolerated, therefore we’ve begun taking action and have banned accounts in North America and Europe that were associated with this group and taking part in the real money trading transactions.
      These actions have primarily targeted the Gallywix organization so far, but our investigations are ongoing and additional accounts involved with running this organization may be banned in the future.
      Going forward, accounts may receive actions if they are found to be involved in future transactions with Gallywix or are actively advertising it.
      Thank you for your understanding.

      Ivan Kuzkin is back with another mix , with a bit more focus on the PvE side of WoW esports, with Mythic+ getting a prominent chunk, followed by the Arena action similar to what's we've already seen, but featuring a brand new first-person outlaw Rogue PoV. This is all built with IKedit's trademark amazingly fluid animations and crazy armor effects any warrior would kill for (and kill with, as it happens).

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.
