Official Preview of Mythic Rating in Patch 9.1

Recommended Posts

Blizzard is implementing a new Mythic+ scoring system to the game in Patch 9.1 and here's how it works.

Blizzard Logo(Source)

Take your Mythic+ skills to the next level. Chains of Domination introduces a way for players to clearly gauge their success and preparation to take on the challenges found in Mythic+ dungeons.

Keying Up to Bigger Challenges

With the content update players can take charge of their own progress and see how well they’re performing in Mythic+ dungeons by viewing their personal Mythic+ rating within the Group Finder(I) UI under the Mythic+ Dungeons tab.

Hovering your mouse pointer over the center Dungeon rating will bring up a tooltip that explains more about your rating and how you can improve it.

Your Rating increases each time you run a dungeon you haven’t completed before or when you beat your own best time in a dungeon you have already completed. Completing a key provides a rating based on three factors—the level of the key, the Affixes in the key, and the run’s time compared to the dungeon’s timer. With each Season, Mythic+ ratings are reset in the display.

Hovering over each dungeon will display the rating for that dungeon and your best time for both Fortified and Tyrannical.

Finding Your Group

Visibility is key in finding the right group for players looking for a group and for those creating a group as a group leader. When searching through Premade Groups in the Dungeon Finder, players will be able to view the group leader’s Mythic+ Rating for the dungeon before deciding if they want to apply to join.

Group leaders will be able to view all the incoming applicant’s Mythic+ Rating and their dungeon specific rating before accepting them into the group.

Maximizing Your Rating

Completing a dungeon once shows that you’ve learned the ropes and earns you a large boost to your overall Mythic+ Rating immediately. For the masters of keystones, running each dungeon on both Tyrannical and Fortified will maximize your Mythic+ Rating as you work your way through the system.

Taking the Win

When players beat the timer, they’ll see a notification that shows the amount their Keystone has been upgraded and the reward they’ve earned such as an increase to their Mythic+ Rating.

As an additional bonus to the group, if anyone in the group improves their rating on a run, everyone will earn bonus Valor Points, so don’t be shy about helping others get a leg up while helping boost your own rating too!

With this new scoring system in place, there are no limits on how far you can go in Mythic+ dungeons.

uh oh... no account rating? in my opinion, one of the biggest advantages of rio was, that it shows your main character rating besides the low ratings of your twinks. (of course, just after creating and linking and account there)

Agreed, this could take us back to dangerous "Whisper KSM Achi for invite" territory.

Should there be an account rating? Maybe? but here's the thing: someone on Class X where they may excel at, maybe trying to some something on Class Y where they don't excel. As a tank, I'm Quite Good on my prot warrior, but my Brew master monk, I feel like I struggle sometimes with cooldown management for defensives. Same could apply to DPS / healer classes.

Account rating would show that the player probably has a firm grasp on dungeon routes, mechanics, important interrupts, etc. But what you said is also very true so you just gotta weigh in both variables when looking at account rating.

      The recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit is having effects in World of Warcraft as well, with many players staging various kinds of protests, including sit-ins in Oribos while raising money for charity, and checking up on a disappearing NPC.
      The most prominent of the protests is from the Fence Macabre RP guild who stages a sit-in on the Oribos steps with hundreds of players, and also managed to raise a huge $9,500 for the Black Girls Code non-profit organization during it:
      The guild tried to get as many individual players together on the same shard via raid groups, but there were still plenty you can't see in the screenshots.
      Another interesting "event" in the game is players heading to Stormwind to "check up" on a specific NPC, namely Field Marshal Afrasiabi (who is named for Alex Afrasiabi, one of the people mentioned in the lawsuit allegations, and who also left Blizzard in 2020).

      The more interesting thing, however, is that Blizzard has seemingly started despawning the NPC, as he was not there when some players arrived. Players had actually been asking for the removal of all references related to Afrasiabi, so this might just be Blizzard listening, although there are other references still in-game.

      And finally, a message from one group of players to the other:

      In terms of actual player comments on the matter there are, of course, many more threads discussing the issue over on r/wow, so if you want to see more community reactions head on over there, with most comments in the main lawsuit thread.

      Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees, addressing the allegations from this week's lawsuit.
      The president called them "extremely troubling" and said that he'd be "meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward", according to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
      Placeholder for tweet 1418512291218264065 Here's a full transcript of the mail (courtesy of Jason Schreier).
      J. Allen Brack
      Hello Blizzard - 
      I personally have a lot of emotions coming out of yesterday, and I know you do, too. The allegations and the hurt of the current and former employees are extremely troubling.
      I know many of you would like to receive more clarity. While I can't comment on the specifics of the case as it's an open investigation, what I can say is that the behavior detailed in the allegations is completely unacceptable.
      It goes - without saying - it is completely unacceptable for anyone in the company to face discrimination or harassment. It goes - without saying - that everyone should feel safe working here, whether we are on campus, at BlizzCon, or working from home. It goes - without saying - it takes courage to come forward, and all claims brought to the company are investigated by internal and (when needed) external investigators. We take these claims very seriously. Claims made without fear of retaliation, and many times, I attend to them personally, along with our other leaders. Stepping back - when I talked with Bobby about taking this job, one of the first things I mentioned was a revered saint of the Brack household - Gloria Steinem. Growing up, the value of women as equals, understanding the work that had been done for equal treatment, and the fact that there was still much to do, were common themes. This is just one of the reasons why the fight for equality is incredibly important to me. People with different backgrounds, views, and experiences are essential for Blizzard, our teams, and our player community. I disdain "bro culture," and have spent my career fighting against it.
      Iterating on our culture with the same intensity that we bring to our games is imperative, with our values acting as our north star. This is some of the most important work we do, both as professionals and human beings.
      A company is more than a legal construct that exists as a piece of paper in a filing cabinet in Delaware. The people that work at the company make it what it is, through their actions and creations. Each of us plays a role in maintaining a place of safety for one other. And it is also up to each of us to continue to craft the Blizzard we want - and commit to doing our part in keeping Blizzard great but always aspiring for more.
      The leadership team and I will be meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward. In the meantime, I wanted to know that you can talk to any man ager, any HR partner, any member of the legal team, or to any one on the executive team [including, Hey J]. If you feel more comfortable by talking to someone outside of Blizzard, or prefer to be anonymous, you can contact the Way2Play Integrity Line (CENSORED).
      I feel angry, sad, and a host of other emotions, but I also feel grateful to work alongside a set of leaders and thousands of employees who join me in their commitment to continuous improvement.
      Thank you Blizzard.

      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:
