Hellfire Citadel Mythic Progress Coverage

Article originally posted on Manaflask

UPDATE - Sep 07 15:36 CET by Starym
And the Top 50 is done, as is our coverage of tier 18 and Mythic Hellfire Citadel! It's been a hell of a ride and probably one of the better races so far in WoW's history, so let's hope Legion isn't too far away and brings us the same quality of raids and bosses WoD did (and that all the top guilds manage to stay together until then!). See you next time!

Here are the final three finishers, and they're nice and diverse: Chinese guild 魔神 (Devil), Drive from the EU and Easy from the US! Congratulations to every guild that managed to finish up Mythic and down Archimonde, regardless of position, that takes some dedication.

UPDATE - Aug 30 15:22 CET by Starym
Long time. no update, so here's the latest guilds that managed to finish up tier 18 in spots 38-47  : Consequence, NollTvåTre, Рак Гейминг, Error Code, B Negative, The Fallen, Embody, Enraged Revolution, Promethean and Devil. Big GZ to all of them!

UPDATE - Aug 24 14:24 CET by Starym
Seven more guilds have finished up HFC Mythic since we last checked in and claimed spots 31-37. They are: 炼 狱, Fusion, Reckoning, 傲血荣耀, Punishment of Asia, eXample and Huge in Japan.

UPDATE - Aug 15 19:35 CET by Starym
More Archimonde kills as we move away from the top 20. Force of Creation, Nova, Forgotten Name and WHATEVER WERE AWESOME claim spots 27-30.

UPDATE - Aug 12 19:41 CET by Starym
Quite a few new Archimonde kills in the last day, with Wave Flow getting the World 24th and the bigger news being the US/OC top 5 being done. Midwinter managed to finally down the big guy and finished US/OC 4th, just ahead of Ascension who ended up 5th!

UPDATE - Aug 11 16:25 CET by Starym
There's been some more kills in the past few days, but let's start with the US/OC No.3, namely vodka, who got Archi down a few hours ago. Spot 20 was claimed a few days ago by 丨金錢丶魅劦丨and 21 yesterday by Openness with vodka coming in 23rd. GZ to all three guilds!

UPDATE - Aug 08 12:04 CET by Starym
And the top 20 is complete! Entropy claim the final spot as well as the US/OC 2nd!

UPDATE - Aug 07 19:15 CET by Starym
Danish Terrace almost close out the top 20, downing Archimonde World 19th, EU 13th. 13/13 and Gz to them!

UPDATE - Aug 06 20:25 CET by Kozmo
Prestige Gaming, set sail for fail & FatSharkYes are the next ones to take down Archimonde, World 16th/17th/18th.

UPDATE - Aug 05 01:25 CET by Starym
ScrubBusters get the kill mere minutes (9) after Nihilum and get the World 15th, EU 9th on Archimonde and 13/13. Gz!

UPDATE - Aug 05 01:07 CET by Starym
And Nihilum are across the finish line as well! World 14th, EU 8th Archimonde and 13/13. Gz!

UPDATE - Aug 03 16:34 CET by Starym
The Asia top 5 is done! Right get the latest Archimonde kill and finish World 13th!

UPDATE - Aug 03 14:17 CET by Kozmo
Stars join the party and takes down Archimonde aswell which places them as number 12 in the world, 4th in Asia.

UPDATE - Aug 02 19:54 CET by Starym
And here's the top 10 in table form:

UPDATE - Aug 02 19:45 CET by aenima
Impact grab the German First Kill / EU 7th on Archimonde and finish the race in 11th place.

UPDATE - Aug 02 17:20 CET by Starym
It really was Asia day today as we have a third kill on Archimonde, which also rounds out the top 10! Style War have reached the end of HFC and are on 13/13. Gz!

UPDATE - Aug 02 13:56 CET by Kozmo
#AsiaRising, KeaHoarl are the next ones to kill Archimonde, Asia 2nd, World 9th!

UPDATE - Aug 02 09:03 CET by Kozmo
This tier surely is full of surprises, AFK R grabs Archimonde as the first guild in Asia, World 8th!
Killshot:R

UPDATE - Aug 01 10:00 CET by Starym
We have a US/OC first! Limit claim this tier as their own as they down Archimonde and finish up Hellfire Citadel as US champions as well as World 7th! 13/13


US/OC first, World 7th Archimonde Mythic by Limit

UPDATE - Jul 31 21:26 CET by Starym
And we have a 6th guild across the finish line! Another one from the EU, it's Rapid Eye Movement downing Archimonde and done at 13/13. Gz to them!

UPDATE - Jul 31 17:35 CET by Starym
The post-race interview with Method is now up!

UPDATE - Jul 31 00:20 CET by Starym
And here's the top 5, all nice and pretty:

UPDATE - Jul 30 19:16 CET by Starym
Pwnanza pull quite an upset and claim the World 5th on Archimonde, closing out the top 5 before both Midwinter, REM and both Asian guilds! Huge GZ to the guild on their 13/13, and it seems we have a full EU top 5.

UPDATE - Jul 28 23:14 CET by Starym
As with the kill itself, Paragon aren't far behind on posting their video:

UPDATE - Jul 28 21:01 CET by Starym
And Method have released their WF Archimonde video! Enoy:

UPDATE - Jul 28 09:01 CET by Kozmo
Yiboliu, FatSharkYes, 丨金錢丶魅劦丨and vodka take down Mannoroth and move up to 12/13, most noteable is vodka with US/OC 5th

UPDATE - Jul 27 21:58 CET by Starym
We have a fourth guild that's done with HFC! It seems that screenshot motivated From Scratch somehow as they claim the World 4th on Archimonde! Huge gz on the finish before the next reset. We're still waiting for those US and Asian firsts.

UPDATE - Jul 27 19:31 CET by Starym
Thanks to on Twitter we got a taste of Phase 3 Archimonde Mythic:

UPDATE - Jul 26 23:13 CET by Starym
A few more guilds downed Mannoroth, the lastest being Nihilum just now. Set sail for fail got him just alittle beofre Nihilum and Impact and ScrubBusters also got to 12/13 yesterday, gz at all four!

UPDATE - Jul 25 08:24 CET by Kozmo
Entropy occupies the 4th spot in the top 5 US/OC table on Mannoroth, World 21st, 12/13.

UPDATE - Jul 24 20:24 CET by Kozmo
Stars, Ascendance and Danish Terrace joins the 12/13 club with World 18th/19th/20th Mannoroth, and we now have 16 guilds fighting for that 4th spot. 

UPDATE - Jul 24 02:57 CET by Starym
And here's the updated wipe count table with Exorsus' numbers:

Boss Method Paragon Exorsus

Iron Reaver 3 1 2
Kormrok 18 1 12

UPDATE - Jul 23 22:00 CET by Starym
Literally seconds after I posted a facebook update hyping up the bronze race Exorsus go and ruin it! They got Archimonde down World third and clear HFC, 13/13! Congratulations to them! I guess it's time to hype the top 5!
Killshot:


World third Archimonde Mythic by Exorsus

UPDATE - Jul 23 20:23 CET by Starym
It seems Envy isn't as done as some grim commenters were saying. They're still in there, clearing bosses and managed to get the EU 9th on Mannoroth and slot into overall 17th.

UPDATE - Jul 23 17:08 CET by aenima
Ascension claim US/OC 3rd / World 16th kill on Mannoroth and moving up to 12/13, also. 14 guilds now at 12/13.

UPDATE - Jul 22 21:14 CET by Starym
Another Asian guild gets past Mannoroth just before their reset, setting them up with at least a chance at that World 3rd finish. KIN Raiders claim the Asia 5th and move into 15th overall. 12/13.

UPDATE - Jul 22 17:50 CET by aenima
Right down Mannoroth for an Asian 4th/World 14th kill, making it now 12 guilds in chase of Method and Paragon and the World Third Kill on Archi.

UPDATE - Jul 22 10:29 CET by Kozmo
KeaHoarl grabs Asia 3rd on Mannoroth right before their reset, 12/13 and 13th overall.

UPDATE - Jul 22 01:59 CET by Starym
Mannoroth down again, for the 12th time and Russian guild Openness claims the EU 8th, moves into 12th overall. Plenty of guilds now on Archimonde, that World third is getting close - can anyone beat Midwinter's 1 day extra loot/legendary rings advantage?

UPDATE - Jul 21 18:55 CET by Kozmo
Mannoroth is having a bad day as yet another guild takes him down, this time its Prestige Gaming who gets the kill, World 11th, EU 7th. 

UPDATE - Jul 21 16:41 CET by Kozmo
We have some stats on Method and Paragon's wipe counter throughout the entire Hellfire Citadel.

UPDATE - Jul 21 08:45 CET by Kozmo
Limit are the next ones to take down Mannoroth, World 10th, US/OC 2nd 12/13.

UPDATE - Jul 21 04:45 CET by Starym
Vodka aren't stopping and move to the 11/13 group and grab the US/OC 5th on Tyrant Velhari.

UPDATE - Jul 21 00:54 CET by Kozmo
Pwnanza claims World 9th, EU 6th on Mannoroth and moves 2 spots up on the ladder. 12/13

UPDATE - Jul 20 05:00 CET by Starym
Vodka are back in the rankings, sealing up the US/OC 5th on Xhul'horac and moving to 10/13. Welcome back!

UPDATE - Jul 19 14:38 CET by Kozmo
AFK R is the 2nd Asian guild to take down Mannoroth, and 8th overall in the world. 12/13

UPDATE - Jul 18 18:20 CET by Kozmo
And it is Paragon with the silver after all, World 2nd Archimonde, 13/13. It really has been an incredible race (and it's not over yet, that fight over 3rd seems like it'll be quite intense) and we have to thank both Method and Paragon for giving us one of the best progress tiers ever. Let's just hope we get more like these in the future! Also, 3 more to go until it's video time!

Killshot:


Archimonde Mythic World Second by Paragon

UPDATE - Jul 17 14:55 CET by aenima
Style War just downed Mannoroth for an Asian First / World 7th kill. This brings them up to 12/13 and in front of Archi.

UPDATE - Jul 17 01:18 CET by Starym
More 11/13s and we already have a complete top 20 on them - set sail for fail rounding out the rankings, followed by ScrubBusters and KeaHoarl, who also go the Asian 5th on Tyrant Velhari.

UPDATE - Jul 16 19:52 CET by Starym
And we have the nerdscreams from the Method Archimonde kill!

 

UPDATE - Jul 16 18:21 CET by Starym
So, it was Method after all, huge GZ. We'll be doing our usual interview with the winners so let us know if you have any questions for them in the comments. Make sure to start with #Question or similar so we can easily sort them!

UPDATE - Jul 16 16:50 CET by Kozmo
Once again it's Method who are victorious, they are the T18 Champions! Archimonde is no more as they take him down for World First, 13/13. I am really looking forward to seeing the video of this boss after hearing from the likes of Rogerbrown and others that this boss is probably the hardest end boss they've ever fought. He died after 472 Attempts.

Killshot:


Archimonde Mythic World First by Method

UPDATE - Jul 16 15:16 CET by aenima
Finally another kill to report: Entropy climbs to 10/13 with an US/OC 4th kill on Velhari.

UPDATE - Jul 16 05:56 CET by Starym
Early morning action as Limit also join the ever expanding 11/13 group and down Tyrant Velhari US/OC 3rd and move into 19th overall.

UPDATE - Jul 16 00:03 CET by Starym
Day 1 of the EU reset gives us another high profile kill! Rapid Eye Movement get the World 6th, EU 5th on Mannoroth and gain access to Archimonde! 12/13.

UPDATE - Jul 15 23:05 CET by Starym
While the extra set of gear and potential rings haven't seemed to loosen Archimonde's grip on his own life they are helping other guilds progress. Danish Terrace move up to 11/13, downing Xhul'horac and setting up in 18th place overall.

UPDATE - Jul 15 06:13 CET by Starym
As has become something of a tradition during progress, we have another History of World Firsts edition for you and this time it covers Mists of Pandaria! http://bit.ly/MoP-History-WF

UPDATE - Jul 15 05:10 CET by Starym
Archimonde lives! The first endboss of a raid to make it to the third reset since early Cataclysm and Al'akir (not counting Ra-Den and his limited attempts, of course). Maintenance has started in the EU and it's pretty impossible for the Asian guilds to down both Mannoroth and Archimonde for the first time in the next day, so this is it.

Five years since we've last seen a three week race and we also have five guilds at the final boss. Even though it still seems to be a race between Method and Paragon, you shouldn't discount Exorsus, Midwinter or From Scratch, despite the significantly lower amount of time spent on Archimonde. We may have have a serious upset this race, and at least all guilds are now ready to go, the finish line starting at them so close they can feel it.

UPDATE - Jul 14 23:57 CET by Starym
It seems the 11s just won't stop today, the reset's got everyone going all in! Nihilum are the next in the 11/13, two more bosses to go club, downing Tyrant Velhari World 20th. Not sure where this puts them in the overall standings since WoWprog still hasn't updated even the Ascendance kill, but I'd guess it'd be at No.17.

UPDATE - Jul 14 23:13 CET by Starym
More 11/13s today as KIN Raiders and Ascendance down Xhul'horac (Asia 6th for KIN) and move into 14th and 16th place overall, respectively.

UPDATE - Jul 14 19:49 CET by Kozmo
FatSharkYes moves up to 14th place with a Xhul'horac kill, we now have 9 guilds sitting at 11/13.

UPDATE - Jul 14 18:30 CET by Starym
So, here we are in the last day of the EU reset and the only guilds that have a shot at downing Archimonde before the next cycle are going at it. Method, Paragon, Exorsus and From Scratch still have some hours to go before we actually get to see the first raid endboss to surive the second reset since Al'Akir back in Throne of the Four Winds in Cataclysm (we don't count Ra-Den, screw you limited attempts!). So, will they make it in the few hours remaining or is Archimonde going to be the big bad he was back in Warcraft 3 again?

UPDATE - Jul 14 14:59 CET by aenima
While Right downed Velhari for an Asian 4th Kill and are now at 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 14 14:00 CET by Kozmo
Ascension grabs US/OC 2nd on Tyrant Velhari and jumps up to 13th overall, 11/13.

UPDATE - Jul 14 12:22 CET by Kozmo
A lot of action going on in Asia at the moment as AFK R takes down Tyrant Velhari Asia 3rd and are now 12th overall with 11/13. Meanwhile Yiboliu (formerly known as Wave Flow) grabs Asia 4th on Xhul'horac, just minutes before Stars who have to settle with Asia 5th instead, making them both 10/13. 

On a side note i'd like to thank all the chinese/korean talking people who are helping us on twitter/the comment section to correct the names/kills, its much appreciated!

UPDATE - Jul 14 06:27 CET by Starym
At least something happened just now that totally makes staying up worth it! The loudest guild of all time woke me up - WHATEVER WERE AWESOME claim the US 5th on Fel Lord Zakuun and land on 9/13. Set sail for fail also downed Xhul'horac some hours ago to go 10/13 and overall 24th.

UPDATE - Jul 14 01:24 CET by Starym
The day isn't done it seems as we have our 5th entry into the Archimonde available club. From Scratch down Mannoroth World 5th, EU 4th and climb into that elite group of 12/13!

UPDATE - Jul 13 22:28 CET by Starym
Another active day today as the reset looms over everyone's head. Pwnanza dispose of Xhul'horac to move into 11th overall at 11/13, while our old friends ScrubBusters arrive at No. 22, just ahead of Nova, both on 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 13 21:00 CET by Kozmo
It's primetime in Russia as Openness also moves up to 11/13 with a Xhul'horac kill, 10th overall now.

UPDATE - Jul 13 20:55 CET by Kozmo
Prestige Gaming takes down Tyrant Velhari which brings them to 9th overall, 11/13, while Openness moves to 10/13, occupying the 20th spot.

UPDATE - Jul 13 18:25 CET by Kozmo
KeaHoarl are now 10/13 with a Xhul'horac kill - World 15th, Asia 3rd!

UPDATE - Jul 13 15:25 CET by aenima
Since there was absolutely nothing happening since our last update, how about some recent statistics.

Method, Paragon, Exorsus and Midwinter are on top of the race with 12/13 and only Archi left. From Scratch, Rapid Eye Movement, Style War and Envy are in pursuit with 11/13, 11 guilds follow with 10/13. 12 guilds sit at 9/13, only 4 guilds at 8/13 atm. 8 Guilds do have 7/13 on their account, 5 guilds are at 6/13. A huge mass consisting out of 91 guilds show 5/13 bosses, 31 guilds managed to climb to 4/13. We do have 81 guilds with 3/13 and stop at this point.

UPDATE - Jul 13 05:56 CET by Starym
We finally have our 4th Mannoroth kill! Midwinter grab the US/OC first, go to 12/13 and get to face Archimonde before the second reset!

UPDATE - Jul 12 23:54 CET by Starym
Just before we head into July 13th we have a few more 10/13s on 10/13 day. Impact and Danish Terrace join the X club with a EU 9th Xhul'horac and a EU 10th Velhari, respectively.

UPDATE - Jul 12 21:35 CET by Kozmo
And another Tyrant Velhari kill... Envy World 12th, EU 9th and that brings them to 11/13 and 8th overall.

UPDATE - Jul 12 21:22 CET by Kozmo
Tyrant Velhari is having a really bad day as KIN Raiders take her down aswell, World 11th, Asia 2nd!

UPDATE - Jul 12 20:52 CET by Kozmo
It seems Sunday is 10/13 day, with yet another kill. Pwnanza also killed Tyrant Velhari, World 10th, EU 8th. 10/13

UPDATE - Jul 12 20:22 CET by Kozmo
Ascendance grabs World 9th, EU 7th Tyrant Velhari moving up to 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 12 18:42 CET by Kozmo
More action on the 10/13 front with Nihilum getting Xhul'horac, World 13th, EU 8th moving them up to 14th overall.

UPDATE - Jul 12 18:21 CET by Kozmo
A name that really deserves to be in the tables, FatSharkYes just miss out on the Tyran Velhari slot with their World 8th, EU 6th. They also move on to 10/13 and overall 13th.

UPDATE - Jul 12 14:24 CET by Kozmo
Mannoroth has fallen again! World 3rd goes to Exorsus, 12/13 and now 3 guilds on Archimonde!

UPDATE - Jul 11 20:15 CET by Kozmo
Style War take a big step up the ranks with World 12h, Asia 2nd Xhul'horac, now at 11/13 and 7th overall.

UPDATE - Jul 11 19:35 CET by Kozmo
Ascension takes down Xhul'horac World 11th, US/OC 3rd, now at 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 11 18:56 CET by Kozmo
Next guild to join the 11/13 group is Rapid Eye Movement with their Tyrant Velhari kill, World 7th, EU 5th.

UPDATE - Jul 11 18:45 CET by Starym
AFK R jump in with the Asian 1st, World 10th on Xhul'horac, moving to 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 11 15:11 CET by Kozmo
Method are back on track after 4 hours of not being able to raid, apparently the issue had to be fixed from the US side so it took some time. Meanwhile Paragon has been doing heroic clears instead of progressing on Archimonde.

UPDATE - Jul 11 12:10 CET by Kozmo
Looks like there's a major issue in camp Method as they're not able to enter Hellfire Citadel yet and havnt been able to for more than an hour or so. 

 

UPDATE - Jul 11 07:10 CET by Kozmo
Limit stays within top 10 as they take down Xhul'horac World 9th, US/OC 2nd. 10/13.

UPDATE - Jul 10 18:33 CET by aenima
Entropy apparently managed to down Zakuun hours ago for an US/OC 4h kill, they now also arrived at 9/13.

UPDATE - Jul 10 14:55 CET by aenima
Nihilum managed to down Zakuun a few minutes ago, this puts them up to 9/13. set sail for fail and Nova also arrived at 9/13 some hours ago, making it now 16 guilds with that count.

UPDATE - Jul 10 14:06 CET by Kozmo
Envy remains at 9th overall with their World 8th, EU 7th Xhul'horac kill. 10/13

UPDATE - Jul 10 13:35 CET by aenima
Stars down Zakuun for an Asian 5th kill, they are 9/13 now and in 23rd spot overall.

UPDATE - Jul 10 11:39 CET by Kozmo
Style War takes down Tyrant Velhari, World 6th, Asia 1st! Now 8th overall at 10/13

UPDATE - Jul 10 08:12 CET by Kozmo
Promethean grabs US/OC 5th on both Shadow-Lord Iskar & Socrethar

UPDATE - Jul 10 01:00 CET by Starym
Something happened! Prestige Gaming jump up into 7th place overall after they went 10/13 by downing Xhul'horac World 7th, EU 6th. Congrats to them!

UPDATE - Jul 09 19:19 CET by Starym
Finally! Paragon have reached Method on 12/13 and downed Mannoroth World 2nd. This means Method's advantage is around three hours today, plus however much time they had on Archimonde on Tuesday after their Mannoroth kill. Which shouldn't be that crucial if the final boss of Hellfire Citadel proves to be at least as hard as Blackhand was. The race is on!
And here's Paragon's "killshot":


Mannoroth Mythic World 2nd by Paragon

UPDATE - Jul 09 16:48 CET by Starym
For those of you thinking the race was pretty much in Method's hands considering no new Mannoroth kills, it's not exactly that simple. Method only now re-killed the penultimate boss and didn't have that much time on Archimonde before the reset, so while their lead is still significant (and will start growing and growing from now) this can still be a very tight race, especially if Archimonde proves to be difficult enough for an endboss. With 4 guilds on pursuit it may not even be Paragon that gives Method a run for their money (although they are the most likely).

UPDATE - Jul 09 14:00 CET by Kozmo
Since theres no kills to report on (like literally not even a Gorefiend kill or Kilrogg) make sure to check out our Hellfire Citadel Mythic Killshots and Videos article - the most recent entry being Method's World First Mythic Xhul'horac video.

UPDATE - Jul 09 06:06 CET by Starym
We're going way back on this one, back to 6/13 and Gorefiend where Promethean got the US/OC 5th.

UPDATE - Jul 09 03:13 CET by Starym
Some Asia server action in the last couple of hours, with two new 8/13s. Stars down Iskar for the Asia 7th and Wave flow Socrethar 7th as well.

UPDATE - Jul 08 23:58 CET by Starym
Here we go again as Midwinter work on reclaiming their 3rd spot with a Tyrant Velhari World 5th, US/OC First. 11/13 with 3 other guilds fighting it out over the World 2nd on Mannoroth and access to the final boss.

UPDATE - Jul 08 22:22 CET by Starym
From Scratch break the silence with a big kill on Xhul'horac, World 6th, EU 5th pushing them up to 11/13 and fourth place overall.

UPDATE - Jul 08 18:02 CET by Kozmo
Stars takes the last spot in the top 5 table for Asian guilds on Socrethar, 7/13.

UPDATE - Jul 08 16:22 CET by Kozmo
Exorsus moves up to 3rd with 11/13, Xhul'Horac down World 5th, EU 4th. It's going to be an interesting battle for 3rd between them, Midwinter and From Scratch, possibly even Rapid Eye Movement up until the end, but the Russsian guild has gotten the advantage and may just ride it out to the very end.

UPDATE - Jul 08 14:15 CET by aenima
As expected nothing, I repeat, nothing, has happened the past hours. So I guess it is the perfect time to make Starym happy and put out some statistics, before the race picks up again in a bit.

Method is the only guild so far with 12/13 bosses, closely followed by the resilient Paragon with 11/13. Midwinter, From Scratch, Exorsus und Rapid Eye Movement follow with 10/13 bosses. There are 14 guilds who made it to 9/13, 4 guilds showing 8/13 kills. 3 guilds managed to get to 7/13, 2 guilds are at 6/13. Now comes a very large group of 46 guilds with 5/13, 21 guilds arrived at 4/13. 68 guilds sit at 3/13, 88 guilds are 2/13, 91 guilds at least made it to down HA.

UPDATE - Jul 08 09:54 CET by Kozmo
Today is reset day which means we probably wont get any new kills from the european guilds for quite a few hours, however it seems that Midwinter has succesfully recleared up to 10/13 without too many difficulties, so a kill from them wouldnt be unlikely.

UPDATE - Jul 08 09:43 CET by Kozmo
KeaHoarl takes down Fel Lord Zakuun for Asia 4th, World 20th.

UPDATE - Jul 07 22:42 CET by Starym
More nines! Danish Terrace down Fel Lord Zakuun for the 9/13 and keep their 17th overall spot. Followed VERY closely by Impact who just downed it 5 minutes ago.

UPDATE - Jul 07 21:59 CET by Starym
And it's Right keeping things going, grabbing the Asian 5th on Gorefiend and Shadlow-Lord Iskar. Thanks to Sintharia for the heads up.

UPDATE - Jul 07 19:43 CET by Starym
Method! It seems Mannoroth wasn't to be in week two as they claim the World First and move past Paragon to 12/13. This race has been a huge back-and-forth but this seems like a very big lead, especially with it being the last day of the reset. Let's see if Paragon can catch up and clear Mannoroth today.
Killshot:


Mannoroth Mythic World First by Method

UPDATE - Jul 07 19:24 CET by Starym
Two more kills incoming, with KeaHoarl grabbing the Asia 4th on Socrethar and moving to 8/13, while Pwnanza do one better and 9/13 it by downing Fel Lord Zakuun EU 10th, joining the 10 strong group with nine bosses down. With the last day before EU reset, can Mannoroth make it to week 2? It seems likely at this point, but you can never discount Paragon and Method.

UPDATE - Jul 07 17:30 CET by aenima
Nihilum with yet another kill, this time Socrethar fell victim, Nihilum now 8/13 moving up to 21st spot.

UPDATE - Jul 07 17:02 CET by aenima

UPDATE - Jul 07 14:38 CET by aenima
Our friends at Nihilum step up to 7/13 by downing Iskar, staying in 23rd place for the race.

UPDATE - Jul 07 13:35 CET by aenima
KeaHoarl managed to down Iskar for an Asian 4th / World 21st kill some minutes ago, now arrived at 7/13 bosses and in 21st spot.

UPDATE - Jul 07 10:01 CET by Kozmo
It's been a very quiet morning thus far but as all hope being to fade, AFK R claims Asia 3rd on Fel Lord Zakuun.

UPDATE - Jul 07 02:06 CET by Starym
Exorsus go to 10/13 with their World 4th Tyrant Velhari kill, joining Midwinter and From Scratch.

UPDATE - Jul 07 01:40 CET by Starym
Kozmo has finally left and can't bully me anymore and call me "NERD" for my love of stats. So here we go again!

The first group sees Paragon and Method at the top staring Mannoroth down and wondering if he's even doable this reset, while Midwinter are the closest to jumping up and joining them on that 11/13 high ground. From Scratch recently caught up with Midwinter on 10/13 and seem to be making a serious play for that bronze medal. The 9/13 group is rather large and seems to be the status quo for the top guilds, with Velhari and Xhul'horac being the next benchmark for serious progression, after our gory and fiendy friend. 9 guilds are on 9 bosses down, followed by 7 on 8/13 and that particular group rounds out the overall top 20.

Set sail for fail and KeaHoarl find themselves the sole inhabitants of 7/13 and 6/13, respectively, followed by a very large 5/13 group, consisting of 36 guilds. The 4/13s are 18 in number, while the 3/13 number 55. The 2 and 1/13 folks stand at 80 and 84, with Order of Sargeras being the latest guilds to get past the first gatekeeper of Hellfire Citadel and Tier 18 Mythic.

UPDATE - Jul 06 22:12 CET by Kozmo
Ascendance keeps their spot at 13th place as they take down Fel Lord Zakuun, on 9/13.

UPDATE - Jul 06 21:22 CET by Kozmo

UPDATE - Jul 06 20:35 CET by Kozmo
Style War grabs Asia 1st on Fel Lord Zakuun, World 12th and are now 9/13.

UPDATE - Jul 06 17:07 CET by aenima
We have a correction on Gorefiend Asian 4th kill: It was KeaHoarl taking that spot, not Wave Flow. Table is corrected.

UPDATE - Jul 06 17:05 CET by aenima
Zakuun is really having a tough 5 minutes, this time Prestige Gaming took the poor lad down. It is for an EU 7th kill, missing World 9th kill by seconds, but at least making it to Top 10 for that boss.

UPDATE - Jul 06 16:57 CET by aenima

UPDATE - Jul 06 12:36 CET by Kozmo

Midwinter keeping progress going this "evening" with their World 3rd, US/OC first Xhul'horac kill and 10/13. Once again away from the pack and in a solid third place. Meanwhile, Danish Terrace and Pwnanza move to 8/13.

UPDATE - Jul 05 18:23 CET by Kozmo
Method continues the assault and follows Paragon's trail with World 2nd Tyrant Velhari, now tied at 11/13. The advantages either guild had at various points in the race are really starting to fade now as they're neck and neck, with Mannoroth re-thinking his lifechoices right about now. "That time that Grom killed me" is about to become his second worst memory.

UPDATE - Jul 05 18:00 CET by Kozmo
Danish Terrace also killed Gorefiend, World 15th.

UPDATE - Jul 05 16:45 CET by Kozmo

UPDATE - Jul 05 15:42 CET by Kozmo
It's really not a good day for Shadow-Lord Iskar who dies for the 11th time, this time to Openness.

UPDATE - Jul 05 04:01 CET by Starym
Limit become the second US/OC guild to down Socrethar the Eternal and join Rapid Eye Movement and Envy on 8/13. World 8th. The more time passes with the very top guilds not making any progress, the more exciting the race gets, as the guilds that don't perhaps raid as much get a chance to catch up and maybe even threaten those top spots.

UPDATE - Jul 05 01:07 CET by Starym
It seems guilds are intent on ruining my little summary down there, with yet another kill coming in! Envy move up to 8/13 and down Socrethar the Eternal World 7th, EU 6th.

UPDATE - Jul 05 00:25 CET by Starym
Shadow-"Lord" Iskar down again, this time by Ascendance for the 7/13 and keeping the 9th spot in the rankings. I feel like this "Lord" thing is being thrown around rather liberally these days, don't you?

UPDATE - Jul 04 23:09 CET by Starym
You know what we haven't done in a while? Or at all this progress, actually? That's right, it's STATS TIME!

Paragon stand alone on their 10/13 mountaintop, with Tyrant Velhari undefeated by any other guild, as Method, Midwinter, From Scratch and Exorsus on 9/13 all aim to even the score and get back to the top. Then we have only one guild on 8/13, Rapid Eye Movement, followed by just two on 7/13, Limit and Envy.


Only three guilds on 6/13 - Ascendance, Openess and Impact, followed closely by the first larger group on 5/13, consisting of 19 guilds. The 4/13 fellowship is another small one, with only four guilds in it, while 3/13 is the first really big congregation, 39 guilds strong, followed by the 46 2/13s. Finally, we reach the biggest group, with only one boss down in Hellfire Citadel Mythic, the 1/13s: 64 of them, ending with Банхаммер.

UPDATE - Jul 04 22:00 CET by Kozmo
Gorefiend is dying left right center, this time it's Impact's turn. World 11th, EU 9th.

UPDATE - Jul 04 21:49 CET by Kozmo
Another guild gets past the Gorefiend "wall" as russian guild Openness claims World 10th, EU 8th.

UPDATE - Jul 04 21:34 CET by Kozmo

UPDATE - Jul 04 21:16 CET by Kozmo
Ascendance is the next guild to get past Gorefiend, World 9th, EU 7th

UPDATE - Jul 04 20:02 CET by Kozmo
Ryan & Co at Rapid Eye Movement moves onward from Socrethar, World 6th, EU 5th.

UPDATE - Jul 04 17:49 CET by Starym
It'll be intersting to see, in the post-progress interviews (or sooner) whether Method was also progressing on Velhari or if they put all their eggs in the Xhul'horac basket, and now might switch over since they saw that Velhari is doable. Despite 4 guilds now being tied in 2nd it seems unlikely anyone but Method will be ringing that 10/13 bell anytime soon. Also, this is getting pretty god damn exciting now!

UPDATE - Jul 04 17:06 CET by Starym
Envy down Gorefiend World 8th, EU 6th and move to 6/13, which means 7/13 is just around the corner with Loot-lord Iskar and that means we'll have 8 guilds on 8/13+.

UPDATE - Jul 04 15:22 CET by aenima
Paragon snags World First Kill on Tyrant Velhari and goes up 10/13 as first guild in the race. Shockingly there isn't and won't be any killshot.

Seconds after that Exorsus took down Zakuun for a World 5th / EU 4th kill and are now 9/13.

UPDATE - Jul 04 14:50 CET by Kozmo
From Scratch joins the front group with World 4th, EU 3rd Fel Lord Zakuun

From Scratch grabs World 4th and EU 3rd Socrethar the Eternal.

With From Scratch downing Gorefiend for a World 4th / EU 3rd kill, we have the first guild moving up to 6/13 in pursuit of the 9/13 guilds.

UPDATE - Jul 03 18:14 CET by aenima
Wave Flow moving up to 5/13 with Asian 4th / World 19th Kill on Kilrogg and now also arrived at 5/13 bosses.

Stars downed the High Council some minutes ago, this would be for an Asian 5th / World 23rd kill. So the 4/13 group consists of 5 guilds now.

UPDATE - Jul 03 16:47 CET by aenima
Nihilum downed Kilrogg a few seconds ago for a World 18th / EU 10th kill, now the 5/13 pack consists out of 15 guilds.

Since there was not much  going on for the last two hours, how about some statistics:

Method and Midwinter still reign with 9/13 kills, closely followed by Paragon with 8/13. After quite a gap, 13 guilds are in pursuit with 5/13 bosses (Ascension, Limit, Exorsus....), 6 guilds made it to 4/13. 25 guilds arrived at 3/13, followed by 42 guilds with 2/13. 57 guilds at least managed to down HA and 1/13 bosses.

UPDATE - Jul 03 05:40 CET by Starym
A good jolt to wake me up a little, Midwinter tie up the score with Paragon on 8/13 with their World 3rd, US/OC first Socrethar the Eternal kill! Method still have that Fel Lord Zakuun advantage, but it may not be as large as it seems with two guilds on their tails now. 

UPDATE - Jul 03 04:19 CET by Starym
A few more recent kills have popped up, with ScrubBusters  coming in at 16 with the 4/13 and Prestige Gaming up to 5/13 in 13th spot at the moment.

UPDATE - Jul 03 01:49 CET by Starym
Ok, I guess the race at the top will not let up until I am dead. Method are back in the lead with 9/13 and a World third, EU 2nd on Shadow-Lord Iskar. Only four bosses to go and it's getting pretty exciting here on day 3 of progress.

UPDATE - Jul 03 01:27 CET by Starym
Back to the lower ranks for a bit, helps to not get a heart attack from all the WFs. Openness and Envy moved to 5/13.

Method with the World First on Gorefiend!!! After a quite slow start, focusing mostly on Heroics it seems to have paid off as they are the only guild now with 6/13 bosses and in the lead.

UPDATE - Jul 02 17:30 CET by aenima
Exorsus with a World 6th / EU 3rd Kill on Kilrogg, putting them in 6th place with 5/13 bosses. So it is now Ascension, Paragon, Midwinter, Method, Limit and Exorsus in the lead.

UPDATE - Jul 02 08:46 - 13:05 CET by Kozmo
Kormrok falls again, this time to Rapid Eye Movement for a World 18th, 8th EU.
We're going to see a lot of boss kills in a short amount of time today as the European guilds are finally starting to do mythic. First familiar name to appear out of the blue is Rapid Eye Movement taking down both Hellfire Assault and Iron Reaver.
Wave Flow snipes the last spot in the Asian top5 table on both Assault & Reaver.
Lots of action on the asian scene at the moment as KIN Raiders grabs Kormrok Asia 1st.

Two more 3/13s with Promethean and Huge in Japan downing Kormrok, US/OC 7th and 8th.
It also seems Asian servers (the Korean part, at least) are up and there's some kills with AFK R on 2/13 already and KIN Raiders on 1/13.

UPDATE - Jul 02 05:32 CET by Starym
Limit are back! They managed to down Hellfire High Council World 5th, US/OC third! 4/13.

UPDATE - Jul 02 05:24 CET by Starym
Twos again! Entropy also got Kormrok, US/OC 5th, 3/13.
P.S. To Encore and Entropy: please stop killing things so close to eachother, your names confuse me. Thank you.

UPDATE - Jul 02 05:07 CET by Starym
Something happened! Encore rose up to 3/13, downing Kormrok US/OC 4th. 7 guilds on 3/13 now and 4 on 5/13.

UPDATE - Jul 02 03:05 CET by Starym
Method are back with the top, and hopefully now they can sleep. They nabbed the World 4th, EU 2nd Kilrogg Deadeye kill and are on 5/13 along with Ascension, Paragon and Midwinter.

UPDATE - Jul 02 01:49 CET by Starym
Updates come in twos it seems. Method went 4/13 and Midwinter 5/13. World 4th, EU 2nd Council for Method, World 3rd, US/OC 2nd Kilrogg for Midwinter.

UPDATE - Jul 02 00:50 CET by Starym
Seems Paragon just hate having a guild catch up to them as they immediately moved to 5/13 after Midwinter's recent kill. World 2nd, EU 1st on Kilrogg Deadeye. There may be some more World Firsts incoming soon folks, I can see Gorefiend looking scared.

UPDATE - Jul 02 00:45 CET by Starym
4/13 again! Midwinter are back and claim the World 3rd, US/OC 2nd on Hellfire High Council! Three guilds now on or over 4 bosses down, feels like Ascension is going to get some company up there real soon.

UPDATE - Jul 01 23:52 CET by Starym
Meanwhile Prestige Gaming make it to 3/13, downing Kormrok EU 7th, World 10th making it 8 guilds with three bosses down.

UPDATE - Jul 01 23:34 CET by Starym
The freight train that is Paragon isn't showing any signs of stopping, 4/13 and a World 2nd, EU first on Hellfire High Council!

UPDATE - Jul 01 23:22 CET by Starym
It seems set sail for fail had downed Kormrok before both Danish Terrace and Paragon, claiming that EU4th and World 7th spot and pushing the others down one, 3/13! Btw, anyone else notice how set sail for fail are basically the polar opposite of WHATEVER WERE AWESOME? No? Ok :(

UPDATE - Jul 01 22:40 CET by Starym
And we have more 3/13s! Danish Terrace got past Kormrok and claimed the World 7th, EU 4th kill, while Paragon slot in just after them for the 5th/8th.

UPDATE - Jul 01 22:35 CET by Starym
Something to pass the time, Limit just released their World First Kormrok kill video, seeing as how the fight was hotfix nerfed.

UPDATE - Jul 01 22:07 CET by Starym
Fusion don't mess around, dowing Iron Reaver less than 45 mins after their Hellfire Assault kill. Gambit also joins them on 2/13. Speaking of 2/13, Paragon just downed Iron Reaver as well.

UPDATE - Jul 01 21:51 CET by Kozmo
One of the biggest contenders to the throne has finally shows signs of life, Paragon are now 1/13 and it shouldnt take many minutes before they roll over Iron Reaver aswell. 

UPDATE - Jul 01 20:22 CET by Kozmo
ScrubBusters has also joined the race and downed both Hellfire Assault & Iron Reaver World 17th, EU 7th, but dont expect more action from them tonight as they've decided to head into heroics again.

UPDATE - Jul 01 19:52 CET by Kozmo
I think we're going to see alot more guilds at 2/13 within an hour or two as most of the European guilds are done doing heroic clears. Danish Terrace is the latest addition to the already existing group of guilds that are knocking at Kormrok's door.

UPDATE - Jul 01 19:25 CET by Starym
Lower ranked action! Set sail for fail show up with two EU 5th kills, bumping Immersion down to 6th on Hellfire Assault and Iron Reaver, while Immersion, Why Me and Danish Terrace move up top 1/13. 21 guilds now that have at least one Mythic kill to their name.

UPDATE - Jul 01 19:06 CET by Starym
Another Hellfire Assault kill with Why Me downing it for 1/13, possible EU 6th, but have to wait for the update.

UPDATE - Jul 01 18:44 CET by Starym
Well, Paragon have announced they are at 0/13. I guess that's a thing now! But it seems to indicate they are done with their Heroic clears and about to start on Mythic. That or someone just remembered they didn't do an announcement for this tier yet. 50/50.

UPDATE - Jul 01 18:10 CET by Starym
The 1/13 numbers swell to 4! Immersion claim the EU 5th on Hellfire Assault.

UPDATE - Jul 01 17:40 CET by Starym
I couldn't resist doing an update. My curse played out exactly as expected and to top it all off, literally 2 minutes after I woke up the 5/13 happened! Anyway, Prestige Gaming join the ever expanding 2/13 club, downing Iron Reaver EU 4th, same rank as their Hellfire Assault kill, leaving only 3 guilds on 1/13.

UPDATE - Jul 01 16:44 CET by aenima
Ascension keeps kicking ass downing Kilrogg for the World First Kill, making it to 5/13 bosses.
Killshot:


Kilrogg Deadeye Mythic World First for Ascension

UPDATE - Jul 01 16:15 CET by aenima
Entropy didn't waste too much time on Loot Reaver and downed him for a World 13th / US/OC 10th kill, shortly after that Honestly also managed to kill that boss and joining the 2/13 pack, which consists of 8 guilds atm.

UPDATE - Jul 01 15:55CET by Kozmo
And another australian guild, Entropy, takes down the Hellfire Assault world 17th, US/OC 14th.

UPDATE - Jul 01 15:30CET by Kozmo
Australian guild Honestly joins in on the Hellfire Assault fun, World 16th, US/OC 13th

UPDATE - Jul 01 15:20 CET by aenima
Since there was no action for a while, because most guilds still doing their heroic runs, how about an overview of the current situation:

Ascension is on top as the only guild having 4/13 bosses, 5 guilds (Limit, Midwinter, Exorsus, Method and From Scratch) in pursuit with 3/13 bosses, followed by 6 guilds (Reckoning, Encore, WHATEVER WERE AWESOME, Vulgar, Pie Chart and Huge in Japan) with 2/13 bosses. 4 guilds (Promethean, Strawberry Puppy Kisses, Nurfed and Honestly)  having 1/13.

UPDATE - Jul 01 14:14 CET by Kozmo
The 3/13 group is slowly increasing in size as From Scratch downs Kormrok World 6th, EU 3rd.

UPDATE - Jul 01 13:43 CET by aenima
Method snags EU 2nd / World 5th kill on Kormrok, making it 3/13 bosses for them.

UPDATE - Jul 01 13:39 CET by aenima
Ascension gets to 4/13 as first guild with a World First Kill on Hellfire HIgh Council. Obviously also a US/OC First Kill.
Killshot:


Hellfire High Council Mythic World First by Ascension

UPDATE - Jul 01 12:52 CET by Kozmo
Yet another kill from Exorsus, Kormrok falls for the first time in Europe to our Russian friends.

UPDATE - Jul 01 12:34 CET by Kozmo
Exorsus joins the race landing both Hellfire Assault & Iron Reaver EU 3rd.

UPDATE - Jul 01 10:50 CET by Kozmo
Method responds immediately and rolls over Reaver aswell, EU 2nd.

UPDATE - Jul 01 10:49 CET by Kozmo
Surprisingly From Scratch races past Method by killing Reaver EU 1st.

UPDATE - Jul 01 10:26 CET by Kozmo
From Scratch follows the trails of Method and takes down Hellfire Assault for EU 2nd.

UPDATE - Jul 01 10:20 CET by Kozmo
The European guilds are starting to wake up, and its the defending champions from Method who grabs the Hellfire Assault EU 1st.   

UPDATE - Jul 01 09:20 CET by Kozmo
The EU servers has been up for quite a while now but dont get too excited yet, most guilds are gonna clear as many heroic raids as they can to funnel gear onto their mains before heading into Mythic, so it's probably gonna take an hour or two before we start seeing the first mythic kills pop up.

UPDATE - Jul 01 08:43 CET by Kozmo
Looks like the heroic clears are paying off for Midwinter as they join the top with World 3rd Kormrok.                    

UPDATE - Jul 01 08:30 CET by Kozmo
It appears that Huge in Japan has slipped through the cracks and has downed Both Hellfire Assault & Reaver, but without wowprogress updating, it's impossible to say whether they killed it before or after any of the other guilds.

UPDATE - Jul 01 07:58 CET by Kozmo
Midwinter pick up the pace as they down Iron Reaver for a World 8th.

UPDATE - Jul 01 07:43 CET by Kozmo
The curse is real! Ascension joins Limit at 3/13 with World 2nd Kormrok.

UPDATE - Jul 01 07:38 CET by Kozmo
And surely enough, just as Starym goes offline Midwinter downs the first boss of Hellfire Citadel, just 12 more bosses to go!

UPDATE - Jul 01 07:26 CET by Starym
In what is surely a mere coincidence I've been told Midwinter will start clearing Mythic in a short while and I'm also going to sleep. I feel like this would be a good time to invoke my curse. 12/13 INC!

UPDATE - Jul 01 07:02 CET by Starym
Pie Chart join the 2/13 club and Wowprog confirms it was in fact WWA that got the 5th on iron Reaver.

UPDATE - Jul 01 06:07 CET by Starym
WHATEVER WERE AWESOME and Vulgar join the ranks of the 2/13, with one of them getting the World 5th on Iron Reaver. Which one exactly is a secret! That or we need to wait for Wowprog to update. For now it seems WWA has the edge.

UPDATE - Jul 01 05:26 CET by Starym
Three guilds on 2/13 now, with Encore joining the club by downing Iron Reaver World 4th! Strawberry Puppy Kisses also got to kill something and are on 1/13, as are Nurfed and Pie chart!

UPDATE - Jul 01 04:15 CET by Starym
Wowprogress is finally getting up to speed and we have two new Hellfire Assault kills by Vulgar and Promethean, 6th and 7th, respectively.

UPDATE - Jul 01 03:53 CET by Starym
Reckoning are moving on up, claiming the World 3rd on Iron Reaver, 2/13.

UPDATE - Jul 01 03:30 CET by Starym
It's starting! We now have five guilds with kills to their name, and Reckoning pushed up into 2nd place on Hellfire Assault bumping the rest down one. Encore is the latest with their World 5th Hellfire Assault, both on 1/13.

UPDATE - Jul 01 02:39 CET by Starym
Wowprogress is finally heating up and we have Ascension joining the party with a World 3rd on Hellfire Assault as well as  a World second on Iron Reaver! 2/13.

UPDATE - Jul 01 02:39 CET by Starym
It seems we finally have a World 2nd on...well anything. But in particular one of the loudest guilds around, WHATEVER WERE AWESOME have apparently downed Hellfire Assault World 2nd and are on 1/13. Gz to them! Also apologies for the smaller font size in the tables, their name is just too awesome to fit it seems.
You can check out the killshot here.

UPDATE - Jul 01 00:40 CET by Starym
There was a great tweet from Watcher recently and it definitely deserves some attention:

WoW encounter team with the best seat in the house for the HFC progression race - good luck to everyone this week!

UPDATE - Jul 01 00:20 CET by Starym
And there we go with the 3/13. It's Limit again and another World First for them with Kormrok.
It seems the killshot had some raid markers there, so we'll post it a little later when a few more guilds down it.

UPDATE - Jun 30 23:37 CET by Starym
Still not much going on, but you can check out our collection of Heroic videos to get a sense of the fights that are happening right now on Mythic. Or just imagine them!

UPDATE - Jun 30 23:08 CET by Starym
A bit of an unexpected lull here at the beginning of the progress race, as some of the top US guilds decided to go for Heroic first. But that only means that once they're done with that there'll be a burst of kills, probably pushing pretty high up the ladder. Also calm before the storm and all that!

Also interesting to note, at this time last tier we were only up to 3/10, so the difference isn't really that huge, aside from less World seconds, thirds etc.

UPDATE - Jun 30 20:40 CET by Starym
Iron Reaver down! Limit are pushing through Hellfire Citadel quickly and are on 2/13 already.
Kilshot:


Iron Reaver Mythic World First by Limit

UPDATE - Jun 30 20:14 CET by Starym
Midwinter and Ascension are confirmed as doing Heroic clears before starting on Mythic, so we won't be hearing from them for a while. Meanwhile here's the Limit killshot:


Hellfire Assault World First by Limit

UPDATE - Jun 30 20:01 CET by Starym
And the very first Mythic kill in Hellfire Citadel is here! Limit have downed Hellfire Assault World First. Gz to the first 1/13! The next kills should come in fast so the actual rankinfs will be a bit wonky until we can get Wowprog updated.

UPDATE - Jun 30 19:35 CET by Starym
Servers are slowly coming up so it shouldn't be long before the race gets going in earnest. Will there be some competition for Midwinter on the US front or will they steamroll everything?

__________________________________________________

The time has finally come once again. Regardless of whether tier 18 may or may not be the final tier of Warlords of Draenor, it's going to be a huge race, with the top two guilds still being neck and neck after Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry. Method came out ahead in the end there, but it wasn't as big of a lead as they may have wanted, as Paragon have that Mar'gok World First and were even ahead during Foundry close to the end there.

Hellfire Citadel is a huge raid with many different avenues to choose, so unless everything but Mannoroth and Archimonde is very easy, there may be some traps that some guilds could get stuck on at the wrong time (Blizzard and hotfixes/nerfs being what they are). Considering how tricky Archimonde seemed to be on Heroic, we might see quite the race this time around if that difficulty translates to Mythic. The US race suffered a hit last tier when Blood Legion decided not to take part in the progress race anymore, leaving Midwinter seemingly a lock for the US race and the early World Firsts. But whenever a large and successful guild leaves the race new ones tend to spring up, so this first day of progress might just be more exciting than expected and we could see some new faces enter the ring.

In any case, US servers should be up in a couple of hours and then it's go time!
