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

      We're looking at how many raid bosses each World of Warcraft expansion has introduced.
      This chart, created by Reddit user throwaway4201251315, lays out the count of raid bosses across all WoW expansions, including Dragonflight.

      The chart's fine details are hard to make out, but it's clear that the original Vanilla version launched with the highest number of raid bosses (about 55-60), whereas Dragonflight had the fewest (around 25-30), a figure similar to what we saw in Cataclysm. Notably, Blizzard's decision to skip .3 patches and the introduction of Fated Raids have contributed to a declining trend in the number of raid bosses in both Shadowlands and Dragonflight.
      It seems that players generally prefer raids with 8-9 bosses, finding larger raids like Ny'alotha and Sepulcher to be exhausting.

      Collecting mounts really has become as much of a part of WoW as raiding, dungeons, questing and PvP at this point, as players constantly want more and more. Today we're taking a look at another hirumaredx video, this time focusing on the 10 rarest mounts players can still obtain today!
      While I'm sure this list will be disputed, it's still fun to see what could be considered some of the most rare rides on Azeroth, especially if you happen to own one already! The list is based off of both drop chances and actual difficulty to obtain, as the first one is basically a 100% "drop", but will take a long time to get.

      One of the Trading Post activities this month requires players to kill the Lich King for Tender and one lucky player went to Icecrown Citadel and looted Invincible's Reins!
      Title Description Travel Points Defeat the Lich King   Kill the Lich King in the Icecrown Citadel.   50 50 Tender convinced naturzaros to visit Icecrown Citadel and kill the Lich King who was very generous in return and dropped Invincible's Reins.

      The axe-wielding, tree-burning dragon has a sense of humor, as he will laugh at anyone that dies to his fire during the raid encounter (and you get an achievement if you didn't get it before!
      The Still Standing in the Fire achievement came along with patch 10.1 and Fyrakk Assaults. It was a little tricky to get as you had to find where to stand and die to the fire, which didn't really 1-shot you. Luckily with 10.2, it got a whole lot easier (well, for raiders anyway). The achievement is named after the original, where Deathwing had to kill you either during the Dragon Soul raid or when he was breathing all over Azeroth.
      As spotted by ah_kooky_kat, dying to Fyrakk in the raid also triggers the achievement, and he still laughs at you!

      The very old-school WeakAura in the screenshot also got a lot of attention the the thread below.
