Method and Exorsus to Stream Raid Progress

Recommended Posts

jl24aLk.jpg

 

Uldir marked the first time a No.1 guild streamed their progress live, as Method took a very successful step forward in the raid race world, with over 200,000 people tuning in on the final boss fight alone. Now it's time to take that one step further as Exorsus have also decided to take their raid progress public!

The two top guilds will be facing off next week when the Mythic difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor opens, joined by US guild Limit that gave Method quite a run for their money in the last race, as well as Memento and Pieces, who round out the top 5 from Uldir, and they all could be streaming as well, but we don't have any info on that just yet. As you can see below, Method have quite the show planned over at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere, with special guests and a high level of commentary throughout.

Battle of Dazar'alor could prove to be one of the more exciting races so far, as two of the three top guilds' strategies will be open to everyone, and with Limit doing extremely well last raid, on top of the fact that they'll be upping their play time in this one. As always, we'll also be covering the race with daily updates, so make sure to check back for the latest daily summary come Tuesday, January 29th!

Sascha Steffens, Method Co-owner, Co-founder:

For more than a decade, World of Warcraft’s Race to World First was a competition that took place behind closed curtains. Livestreaming made it possible to spectate the best players and teams in the world achieve greatness but the raid race remained to be a secret competition until last September. The livestream of Mythic Uldir was an incredible experience. For the first time we showcased the tenacity and willpower that raiders are required to have in order to achieve a World First. Admittedly I was worried that watching hundreds of failed attempts on the same boss could lead to viewers tuning out eventually. But the opposite happened, every failed attempt watched got you more invested in the race. I’m incredibly excited to announce that the Method guild will livestream their attempt on another World First in Battle of Dazar’alor. See you all next week!

The Race to World First – Battle of Dazar’alor livestreams will begin in the early morning (GMT) on January 30th 2019. Make sure to follow the Method Twitch channel with notifications on to not miss out as we start the race! More announcements regarding the event to follow, stay tuned.

      We have some hotfixes that address a bug in the Restless cabal fight today, as well as some live raid tuning for Battle of Dazar'alor, nerfing 2 encounters and making Jaina mercy kill you if everyone gets frozen.
      May 22 (source)
      We’re working on the following adjustments to raid encounters. These changes are not live yet, but will go live later this evening or tomorrow.
      Dungeons and Raids
      Crucible of Storms The Restless Cabal Fixed a bug that caused Relics of Power to threaten some non-boss enemies.  
      Battle of Dazar’alor Grong, the Jungle Lord Death Empowerment (Alliance) and Apetagonize (Horde) cast time increased to 5 seconds on Mythic difficulty (was 4 seconds). Death Specters (Alliance) and Apetagonizers (Horde) health reduced by 20% on Mythic difficulty. High Tinker Mekkatorque Gigavolt Charge’s radiation zone duration reduced to 2 minutes on Mythic difficulty (was 3 minutes). Tampering duration increased to 30 seconds on Mythic difficulty (was 25 seconds). Lady Jaina Proudmoore Jaina now kills all players instantly if the entire raid is frozen solid during an intermission phase. Developers’ note: Previously, if an entire raid was frozen solid, all players would have to wait until they each died before they could restart the encounter. This change will help raids quickly reset and start the fight again.

      It seems we're getting one or more of these every day now, with players simply convinced that something is off with the Classic beta. Today's edition features Elite mob damage being too low and that Classic is a lot easier than Vanilla was. Here's Blizzard's reply:
      Elite Damage (source)
      We tested this issue in our reference environment today.
      First, we looked at a video from the WoW Classic Beta, where the player was tanking Rhahk’zor in Deadmines at level 20:
      If you look at his portrait while he’s getting hit, you can see him receiving 65-83 damage from Rhahk’zor. The average hit is ~75.
      We then recreated it in the WoW Classic Beta-- a level 20 human warrior with similar gear, with Defensive Stance, and with Mark of the Wild. Here’s what that looked like:

      We then did the same thing in our 1.12 reference environment. There, the test looked like this:

      Conclusion: the average damage taken is identical.

      Recently there have been reports that absorbs no longer prevented the dazed effect while mounted on the PTR and some assumed it was due to mount equipment coming in the patch and that Blizzard did it on purpose to push that system. Today we found out that was not the case and it's just a bug.
      Daze on PTR (source)
      This change was not intended. We’re investigating the issue and plan to fix it in the Rise of Azshara PTR as soon as possible. So, will this teach people to rather ask whether something is intended on PTR than immediately assume the worst possible motivation and decisions from Blizz? Probably not.

      We have a stress test scheduled for tomorrow on WoW Classic Beta and this post highlights some addons which have been found working with the Classic version of the game right now.
      Popular Resources for Classic Addons
      The sites listed below contain a list of addons working with Classic Beta.
      Spreadsheet with Working Classic Addons -- periodically updated with new addons as they become available. Will It Classic? -- another great site with updated information regarding Classic Addons. Questie SVN (GitHub) -- a popular addon for Questing  still in Alpha/Beta. WoWInterface -- Classic section of the popular site for addons. Recommended Addons
      Even though the stress test is limited to level 5, you may want to install at least some addons to help you during that time. The addons we're using currently on Beta include:
      Map Coords Classic - Adds coordinates to the minimap and the world map, vital for navigating quest objectives. Dominos Classic - A main actionbar replacement. Alternatively, you can use TukUI, which has been ported to Classic. Vendor Price - Displays the vendor price of items. Questie v4 Alpha - A standalone Classic QuestHelper. While the addon is still early in development and some features may not work as intended, the latest version comes with objectives tracking, for some quests at least! How to Install Addons for Classic
      Download the addon you want to install. Navigate to your WoW installation folder, extract the addon and move it to the Interface/Addons folder. Start the game and on the bottom left, make sure that your addons are enabled.

      You no longer need to rename the Questie folder.
      Questie is a little different. You must first visit GitHub, and click on the green "Clone or download" button. Extract the folder, rename "QuestieDev-QuestieClassic" to just "Questie" and move it to Interface/Addons.
      Happy testing!
