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. 😁

      WarcraftSecrets have spotted an interesting new aura on 8.2 PTR which reduces Experience gains from quests and kills by 95%, while someone in your party has disabled XP.
      Placeholder for tweet 1140393688272723969 Experience Eliminated - You've taken a vow of experience elimination and are unable to gain experience. There may be someone out there that can help you remove this...
      In the next tweet they clarified this mainly affects Demon Hunter boosting in Freehold and Island Expeditions and they hurry players to boost their characters before the Patch goes live which is rumored to go live June 25th.

      Russian machinima makers Kambrio Machinima have recently translated their Hunters video to English. Made in Unreal Engine 4, using WoW assets, it tells the tale of a Human Hunter and a Forsaken Mage and their little discussion on life and un-life. There are some very impressive shots in the intro and the eventual fight is also well done.


      There's also behind the scenes video, made in a pretty cool manner, as an in-world documentary:

      The machinima makers have a bunch of videos on their channel you can check out as well, including this UE4 recreation of Lakeshire:

      There's been plenty of changes to the Nazjatar zone on the 8.2 PTR and we've updated our Nazjatar zone guide!
      First off, the quests have been beefed up, as there are many more present between the main steps for the zone, aka there are more quests between the introduction, getting to the essence quests for the Heart of Azeroth, the bodyguards etc. which makes the zone a lot more fleshed out. A lot of essences are now linked to quests and achievements instead of being vendor-bought, with an exception for the ones tied to specific reputations. The Laboratory of Mardivan event is now weekly. More cinematics added the battle for Nazjatar PvP event is now more fleshed out. For all of the details and new additions, head on over to our full Nazjatar zone guide, and keep checking back periodically, as it's going to keep getting updated.
