World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth just wrapped up its world-first race for its inaugural mythic raid, Uldir. For you non-WoW players out there: a titan research facility that involved experimentation with Old Gods. It was a close competition heading into last night with no less than nine groups all at 7/8 bosses killed at the one week mark, but in the end, Method took it with a clear time of eight days. That includes a full weekly reset, which saw Method re-clearing the entire dungeon again to beat G'huun, the final hurdle.
All this time World of Warcraft has been enjoying record stream numbers, mostly thanks to Method -- one of the top raiding guilds in the world and an eSports organization to boot -- choosing to fully stream their progress with commentary. For reference, this isn't a common practice. Traditionally groups prefer to raid in secret, only posting screenshots after a clear to be entered onto a glorious spreadsheet maintained by the elites of the MMO community.
If the next world-first race is anything close to the ups and downs of Uldir, this expansion's legacy, purely as it pertains to raids, is going to be in good shape.
