Here we are with a weird one for the history books, as Onyxia and Ragnaros will be the first raid endbosses to be re-killed by different guilds World First!
The competition in WoW Classic is going to be very different from what we're used to here in the WF race, as progression is taking on a very different shape. The race will actually start immediately when Classic launches on the 26th and will mostly be about the leveling - since the assumption is that the bosses will basically go down immediately when 40 level 60 players head into the raids. World Firsts themselves will be hard to estimate since there's no armory API, so no exact kill tracking will be available either - we'll just have to eyeball it, which is why we decided to only put up leaderboards for Onyxia and Ragnaros, instead of the entirety of Molten Core. It's going to be hard enough figuring out who got which spot on the endbosses, let alone who got 4th place on Golemagg in the US!
Since the leveling process is going to be the core of this particular race, we'll also be doing regular updates on where exactly players are on the 1-60 trek, but we'd also appreciate if you guys also wrote in the comments if you know what levels certain groups or individuals are at, because again, there's no real tracking system in place other than just following people's streams etc.
It's going to be a weird race this time around, but I'm definitely excited to see how it turns out and how we can best cover it, so if you have any suggestions or input, do let us know below!
