Blizzard Contemplates Stricter Penalties for Mythic+ Leavers: Changes on the Horizon?

Recommended Posts

Blizzard often discusses the issue of players leaving Mythic+ runs. While there's nothing concrete to announce at the moment, we might see stricter penalties down the road.

Funny you should mention this. We’ve had several internal discussions about this very topic, and while there’s nothing to announce yet (and, realistically, not likely for a while), this is a concern very much on our radar. It feels a little disingenuous to say “stay tuned” because nothing is going to be immediately forthcoming, but if and when something comes of those discussions, this is your forewarning to not be surprised.

While they're at it they should inflict a "leavers" debuff on ppl who abandon the arriving people, race too far ahead, pull large packs and generally trash talk the dps for not having the same speed buff they cranked tertiary for.

I saw one group kick a dps "for not keeping up" but only after said dps helped them get an achieve.

they should rework M+ imo. They need to remove physical keys and just allow players to run any dungeon they want a given week setting the level like you would any other difficulty level. people already spam what ever dungeon they want to get a specific item so it wouldn't really change anything other than remove the annoying idea of ruining keys. the punishment should be the time lost like it is in raiding, people would rightfully be complaining if after 10 wipes raids would just kick you down to normal from heroic, it's such a dumb concept and completely unfun.

This is a bad idea. Meta bullies will always end up abusing this feature. Always. You're tanking a run for some 3k alts and you pull the wrong trash mob? All four of them abuse you, laugh at you, kick you, and all four report you for "leaving their key early". I have seen this behaviour from 3k+ io players many times. Even if you can reliably +1 a run, if you don't do it the way they do on their mains they either rage quit or bully. I straight up NEVER invite 3k+ io players to my +16-20 runs anymore, too many bad experiences with elitist jerks.

I'd say like 40% of the keys people leave are justified tbh. There's only so much pre-investigating bad players you can do before committing to a pug and the rest will be visible throughout the run. Punishing someone for leaving the odd key here and there to not have their time wasted by an incompetent player(s) should not be a thing but people constantly leaving/trolling are the problem.

 

The amount of groups I join where i'm clearly carrying someone for free is also a problem. Being punished for refusing to carry someone when I didn't agree to this would also be a problem for me.

Should make it so you can vote to abandon the m+ so you get no penalty. (how many yes votes have to go through to abandon the run is smth to test).
and if no voting took place to abandon the m+ but you still leave you get a penalty applied.

How can someone see who they will boost? Raider IO score? That's just not true as people with high score also just don't have the dps to time the key without being boosted a lot of the time.

The argument of 'not same skill level' doesn't really work when you're pushing high level keys, if you can't do high keys stick to low ones until you're ready instead of being a selfish player

I understand it's upsetting to hear that people don't want their time wasted in A GAME, but that's just the truth

      Grim Batol will be in the War Within Season 1 dungeon rotation and If you find the flight event frustrating, this handy WeakAura can make it easier for you!
      It shows a number above each enemy's head indicating how many shots are left until they die. The first number represents the big shots (spell 1), and the second number shows the small shots (spell 2).

      You can download GrimBatol Flight sim here.

      What happens when you die too many times in the Delves and reach the death count?
      Over the course of Beta testing, we've been closely monitoring the death limit introduced to delves. For lower-tier delves, there is currently no death count, so you don't need to worry. For Tiers 4+, you can only die 5 times during the run.

      But what exactly happens when your char reaches the death count?
      At the end of the delve, you will receive no loot, but your attempt will still count toward the weekly chest. Special thanks to MrGM for the screenshots!

      The War Within Pathfinder in the new expansion unlocks Steady Flight and here are the requirements.
      Skyriding is available from the start in Khaz Algar. However, if you prefer regular flying or Steady Flight, you will still need to unlock it by earning the The War Within Pathfinder achievement.
      This time around, the requirement are simple. You must complete the level-up campaign in all 4 zones.
      The Isle of Dorn The Ringing Deeps Hallowfall Azj-Kahet There are 3 chapter per zone, it's very short.
      The other requirement is Khaz Algar Explorer. To get it, you must reveal the covered areas on the world map in all 4 zones, which is extremely easy with Skyriding.
