Hey. Hey. Hey,
and are you watching the world first race? I find this somehow interesting even though I have absolutely no idea about Retail WoW.



What do you think,will EU make it?

Greetings,
Aeh

I don't usually, but tonight I did switch it on, especially to see if there would be an upset. I am not subscribed and have no interest in retail WoW, but the competitive nature of these world firsts are intriguing and also the huge following and setups they have are crazy.

I just can't, watching people competing for world first by slaying pixels faster than someone else is not that enjoyable...
Some people might but i can't...
Its and MMO+RPG, supposed to be RPG, not FPS+(SINGLE-PLAYER)+(SPEED-RUNS) - MMO-RPG = FPS SINGLE SPEED <---No idea what I just did...

I am not interested in retail wow, but I find the World First Race somehow exciting.

It's nice to tune in from time to time to see the different "teams" struggle to some boss and sometimes even arrive at the exact moment they overcome it. It always have a great feelings to it !

But I usually watch it as a "Radio Stream", listening to what casters have to say and some of the various bits of "Themed Talks" that sometimes pop out (Like, Tipsout will be on air during the week to talk about Classic for example)

Watching 4 hours straight the same raid wiping over and over isn't appealing at all, but tuning randomly and watch progress unfold is the greatest part of it imo

I don't like retail either but world first and other world champs like arena I find some what entertaining.

Same goes for Football (Soccer) and Ice Hockey, I would never watch a match unless it's world championship

I don't watch them but I find them interesting. I'm especially curious how they'll affect classic when it comes out! If big guilds are broadcasting where they're trying for world firsts I assume that people will do their best to screw with them (I know I will)

Haha, ye @HaxO I just realised that with the last race, was kinda hyped for the actual race, that is also the reason why I am looking this!
TFT and Streams are my evenings until Classic...

I've tried watching them multiple times in the past but it gets boring pretty quickly, it usually ramps up when they all reach the final boss.
That being said it's fun to watch the NA v EU banter, as always.

I really enjoyed the first BFA World First. It was super hype and everyone at work watched it too so we spent way waaay too much of the work day streaming it to a TV as we worked.

Probably helped that I slightly cared for BFA at that time.
Now that I don't really care about retail (or BFA) anymore, I found it much harder to watch, so I keep checking in every now and then to see where they at and what's going on.

The most fun is the EU vs NA memes.
Some people seem to get really offended which makes it even more fun.

I did not watch it. I think it would be much more appealing to watch if the guilds participating hadn't already been playing the raids on the PTR.

I was looking for a good box of wine. The World First Race is a joke now that they can AH-BOE their way through the raids.

Take away TF and TF-BOEs and maybe it would be fun to watch again. My $0.02

359 pulls, imagine the repair cost in vanilla.

Worlds highest debt as well in Wow Currency as well.

They are being carried by gold from others. Kind of P2W

Didn't know this was a thing. Never been interested in watching streamers play video games though.

359 for being a joke is kinda...mehh.
I'm not a fan of Retail WoW, but the raids are much more challenging from the mechanics than the classic raids.

Nothing new - Big guilds in classic got also carried by "gold from others". It just wasn't as obvious as it is now.

I am just interested in the encounters in order to see if there is some kind of cinematic or event that takes places when you defeat that last boss in the raid in the most hardest difficulty, but nope; it seems there is nothing and if there is they don't broadcast it. Welp :/

@daisyKutter if you're talking about the new Eternal Palace raid, then yes there was a cutscene at the end of the raid when you defeat Azshara. I wont spoil anything but it was a great cinematic if you were keeping up with the BFA plot
