My bet was either apes or Olympus.
Dunno if they had strict priviledges on voice comms but they didn't sound excited at all. I guess I'd be dead too after doing something like that.
I bet there were a lot of people involved who didn't end up in that screenshot too.
Neat, the most impressive thing about this to me is managing to get that many people to nolife that hard.
they're not excited because most of these guys have been on the private server scene for 5+ years and have done this repetitively (Speed running) multiple times. This is nothing new to them. But still im happy to know us private server kids are holding the title of world first over methods head.
Does that matter? Like, I dunno. People are really wanting to dunk on Method and I don't understand whyCaspus wrote: ↑1 year agothey're not excited because most of these guys have been on the private server scene for 5+ years and have done this repetitively (Speed running) multiple times.

Because its funny to shitpost on a "esport" team.
Method does it to everyone else. Now we get to do it to them. It's hunting season.
I'm not familiar with Method doing the shitposting, but if it encourages people to do it back then I guess kudos for them for tricking people into giving free promotion.

Because i've played with almost everyone in the guild Apes at one point in time. Been apart of the vanilla private server community for roughly 9 years and have been apart of many speed runs like this. They're reppin our banner.
Method came over from retail all cocky and indirectly saying (via their attitude and general cokcy-ness) that classic was easy and since they are a super duper retail mythic raiding guild, world first 60 and world first MC clear would be a sinch. While the wow community that cant stand retail keeps saying classic is not only better, its harder and will be more opopular, a lot of the current retail people say no way to both. This kinda just puts clout behind the vanilla-for-lifers that classic is harder/better, and you can't just roll over from retail in your spare time and expect to set the records.
I just enjoy dunking on retail esport guilds. I personally do not like the retail community. There's been times where they've witchhunted private server players to get them banned and spotlighted private servers to try and get them sued/removed. So I took pleasure when their "team" failed.
I dunno. I'm just not convinced they really "failed." They got loads of promotion, had some sponsorship deals, and yeah. Like yeah they didn't do it first, but that's just because other people leveled faster and it was pretty clear by day two that they weren't going to be able to keep up. Half the method players at the event just leveled pretty chill after the first day. I dunno. I just feel like there's a lot of unreasonable angst.Caspus wrote: ↑1 year agoI just enjoy dunking on retail esport guilds. I personally do not like the retail community.

Nothing really concrete is said by anyone here. Just what "communities" say and that is entirely dependent on who you encounter and how many. None of that will ever be representative of a larger group.
Additionally, I don't know or care about the cockiness. But they're not wrong to think that MC is easy. I mean the guild who did get world first said as much, and said the only reason they got it was they new how to level faster. It's not like vanilla was too hard for Method. They just didn't know all the strats to level fastest. Big whoop. Like I just don't understand how people get so much joy from this. Like yeah, Method didn't level fast enough. Whatever. I saw the news, said "Oh, cool." and tabbed back into WoW.

We get joy from it because our community has been swept under the rug and spat on since wrath and we're now able to show off without any repercussions.
I can't imagine there are that many people who are super compelled to include themselves in that "we" or have much skin in the game at all in this whole fiasco. I've been part of the vanilla private server community since 2011, and by now you know my reaction.
Temaius - Paladin
seriously they downed rag already? thats mental lol i thought you needed to have like some kind of reputation done to be able to get in the raid and do it? and a whole load of fire resist gear too? that blows my mind how they coordinated so many people to get this done so fast and im sitting over here with my 2 sub-level-20 characters thinking im progressing pretty okay LMAO
Yeah its pretty wild. I wish I still had that kind of time again.
For those of us who raided seriously on retail vanilla and have played private, we seen this as a possibility (probability). This is why we have been saying as much for months. That is NOT to say that this was easy or even predictable, this was nothing short of amazing and with the shaky launch, I am shocked that they were still able to pull this off. However, completing MC within a week is achievable (clearly) and inside two weeks is VERY achievable as was known by anyone in the hardcore raiding scene. Private is and always will be the hardest variation of Classic. I am super happy that I got to experience private and for those of us who did, we understand how massive the nerf to difficulty is while entering Classic, especially in raids as private was intentionally tuned to be more challenging. For all the hate pservers get, I am happy that these guys were validated. Though the selfish part of me is very disappointed and wishes that Classic was tuned to be relevant for modern standards so that we could relive that authentic difficulty that we faced in retail vanilla. My hats off to APES, I had figured these guys or Method would be getting the world first. While APES has far more applicable experience, I thought that the support network for Method may edge them out given how insanely powerful early consumable stacking can be for a raid team.
All in all, very huge accomplishment for APES and a huge validation for private servers and the content that was completed on private and the players that completed it. I have PvP'd against APES many times and the guys are savages.
I remember rerolling horde for northdale with the side thought of "hey at least all the tryhards are going to be on horde with me this time and it won't be like how it has been for years on alliance". Then everyone went ally and formed apes and all those guys and made Horde miserable. So much for my break.
I'm just sitting over here enjoying the fact that the picture appears to show a full raid team of gnomes and dwarves. I don't see a single human warrior in there. No humans at all actually. I was kind of expecting to see everybody rolling the straight min-max races all the way down the line. I mean dwarf priests, check. Gnome casters, check. But gnomes with shields
Dunno whats so great about anything in PvE classic or even private scenes "difficulty" did emerald dream bk in the day, and its nothing more than having enough time to pull this kind of shit off. And these boys prolly just unemployed cos they do it on the reg. This has the same amount of difficulty and excitement as a somebody who has ran countless marathons, succeeds to run yet another one. Method hate I can kinda understand from this dude if he identifys as a private player but thats what always happens when "your" group is being "attacked", would I care if I would be a privplayer, no.
What pippina said is the only thing that amuses tbh
It is just sad to hear:
"This game is easy, killing Ragnaros with 12 sta neck" Warlock from the APES, after the world first kill.
It was like, Muhammed Ali comes back to rings, and Knocked out at first punch!
But on the other hand, it is a great progress for a well organised Guild.
First pvp kill?Since classic launch? Lets hear about it!
Mine was against a 29 gnome warlock just west outside astranaar in ashenvale. Dude was 6 lvls above me and...Deleted User 2577 • 1 year agoIsomena
