Crucible of Storms M Race Day 7: 24% Method, 26% Aversion, 33% Exorsus, 34% Alpha

Recommended Posts


We were getting some pretty consistent progress each day in the race, as we saw 10-ish percent go down for Method a couple of days in a row now, but today they had a bit of a stalemate. Having lost a number of their raiders to the final MDI Spring Cup (which they won), Method remained on their best try from the previous day, a 24.5% one. We still don't know Pieces' exact numbers, but there are rumors/comments that they're as low as 19%, which would make the two top guilds very close indeed.
Here's that Method try from Sunday:

Of the others, we have German guild Aversion in third place (presumably) who had an impressive 30% try on Sunday, but then topped that with yesterday's 26.3% one! Let's take a look at both:

We then have Exorsus a bit of a way further behind, with their best try at 45% on Sunday, but they also are getting closer and closer to Method, Pieces (presumably) and Aversion, with yesterday's 33.5%.

On the Asia side of things we have Alpha once again dominating the field, and also being pretty close to the top, especially considering their 1-2 day disadvantage. They also had a 34% wipe yesterday, which you can check out right here.

And so we have the top 4 (that we have info on) all within 10% of each other, with Aversion only 2% behind Method, and Pieces presumably even a little bit ahead of them all. With today's hotfixes/nerfs to Uu'nat, making his abilities overlap/quickly follow each other less, we might be seeing a kill pretty soon, which would coincide nicely with Jaina's demise/retreat, on the 7th day of progress.


And finally, we have Method Josh's comments and thoughts on the difficulty/fairness and tuning of Uu'nat and how it compares to Jaina's, with a pretty well captioned clip title:

Uu'nat has so far taken Method 520 attempts, compared to Jaina's 346 and,  and the 654 for the hardest boss in a long, LONG time, Tomb of Sargers' Kil'jaeden.

Wow, Sargeras' name/prestige really took a nosedive after the Titans one upped him in Legion. ?

      The US premiere of the Warcraft movie was last weekend and I was given the opportunity to attend! Check out my full breakdown of the movie and the story, as well as highlights of the event!
      The movie has now been released in most major countries, so I felt it was time to finally give a full analysis and breakdown of the film. I'm going to start this off by saying:
      If you haven't seen the movie and want to preserve the story for yourself, this might not be for you. I won't hold back on any of the information that I give.
      My Review
      The Premiere
      The Director
      The Cast
      The Music
      The Story
      Now this is where things get interesting. There are going to be a LOT of spoilers coming from here, so look away if you haven't seen the movie. I'm going to be discussing and throwing in critiques of the story, as well as comparing it to game lore. Enjoy!
      What is fel and where is the Legion?
      What's up with Medivh?
      The freshly dinged mage, Khadgar!
      Garona - Human or Draenei?
      Anduin Lothar - The Lion of Azeroth
      King Llane I
      Why is Stormwind still standing?
      Durotan and Draka
      Orgrim - The Blackrock/Frostwolf/Thunderlord
      Blackhand - The Warchief
      Gul'dan - The Perfect Villain
      Why is Alodi female?
      Dalaran looks... different?
      Deadwind Pass and the Crater
      The Draenei
      Predictions for the future?
      That's it from me! Let me know what you think, questions you might have or corrections anywhere in the post. I'm always open to discussion! If you haven't seen the movie, grab a ticket and go watch it! It's worth it!
      From premiere to big screen, we've got it all!

      We're again highlighting PvP changes Blizzard announced recently that will go live after this week's maintenance in all regions.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a new set of PvP tuning changes that will be applied to the game with weekly maintenance in each region (January 26 in this region). Here’s what we’re currently testing:
      Player vs. Player
      Players now deal 20% less damage to Death Knight, Hunter, and Warlock pets. In 2v2 Arenas, Dampening will begin at 20% when both teams have either a tank or healer. Druid
      Convoke the Spirits no longer casts Full Moon and Feral Frenzy when engaged in combat with enemy players. Mage
      Triune Ward (legendary) now provides 50% effective barriers (was 65%) in PvP situations.** Fire Infernal Cascade (conduit) effectiveness reduced by 33% in PvP situations. Paladin
      Holy Divine Favor (Honor Talent) cooldown increased to 30 seconds (was 25 seconds), and now increases cast speed by 30% (was 60%). Protection, Retribution Word of Glory’s healing has been reduced by 20% in PVP situations.

      It's time to take a brisk stroll through some zones and cities of WoW in VR! The VR Chat game actually has some WoW maps inside you can run through, and Press start to begin did exactly that in the video below!
      Unfortunately you can't actually play the game properly, as there are no mobs abilities etc, just the maps available, but we do get a look at Orgrimmar, Shattrah, the Crossroads, Undercity, Dalaran and Stormwind.

      The past few days saw US senator Bernie Sanders get inserted into all kinda of games, as his inauguration ceremony look hit a cord with the gaming community, and WoW got its own versions of the meme!
      First off, the general concept, as demonstrated in Skyrim:

      You can check out some more general gaming ones over at PC Gamer, but now we're on to the awesome WoW ones, some even retweeted by Blizzard staff! As you can imagine, there's a perfect fit for the pose in WoW:

      The devs even got in on the action, as the Lead Narrative Designer took a shot:
      But it's not just the big lore characters that got the treatment, as this Alliance Warfront NPC found out:

      And, as you'd imagine, any sitting context works with the meme, so here's Bernie again, as he apparently also just got out of Torghast:

      But WoW wasn't the only Blizzard franchise to get hit either:

      So what did you think of the latest meme craze to hit the gaming world?
