If this game had more than a raid tier every 3 months I wouldn't play at all, because it would be impossible for me to keep up. 1 every six months would be ideal for me, but going without for a year being content drought and his reflex response is "WUT DO U NED A NEW READ EVRY WEK???" is hilarious. People get so funny here sometimes!

What do you want, a brand new raid tier every week?


Well, yes...

....isn't there millions upon millions of players, spending all their money on WoW tokens, and fancy store mounts, and pay2win battle pets, on top of their monthly subscription payments?

Shouldn't we be getting a 'raid tier every week'? Or more realistically, enough content released on a frequent basis, just a right amount between these content patches, so that 'content droughts' are a thing of the past?


Money doesn't magically transform into content. And WoD proved that just hiring more people doesn't make content faster either.

Wouldn't be something I'd be willing to do every week with my free time. You're correct that if I wanted to, it wouldn't be an issue.

When did they bring it back? I remember it being removed in order to redesign it to work with sharding, but I don’t remember its reimplementation.


They monkeyed with it to run along world quest style mechanics instead of the old per-server style. Last I heard, and keep in mind that it's been a while so this may be very outdated information, but it still does get buggy from time to time. Luckily, though, this is bugginess tends to result in more winners than expected.

Even with that, though, heirloom ring + salty title is enough to entice many people. Even if the fishing tournament ring does happen to be worse than normal drops would be in that slot.

Sure, if you want MC over and over. They said once that they built THAT in a week, which shows as nearly everything in there was existing models on existing tile sets.

You should still try. It could be xrealm phasing and your realm may not be represented.

Thoughts so Far: Amazing game, playing Master Mode now.

Heirloom ring.

I went back to my dead old PvE realm. Got it in my second try.

Got it back when realm still mattered. First person on each server won, despite CRZ.

Nothing is better than +5% experience earned.

Also, does the fishing skill matter in this competition? Or just sheer dumb luck and a bit of preparation?
