|We Are Changing EU Kill Times||2 years ago|
|The EU heroic kill dates have now been adjusted to take into account delayed access to heroic content as previously mentioned. The delay in EU, KR and TW servers coming online with new content has a big impact on world-first kills, especially with content is cleared in such a short time frame. The adjustments made by GuildOx makes the world rankings much fairer since they more accurately show the true leaders of the race to claim world first. This was done successfully for the Firelands heroics and now it is being applied to the Dragon Soul heroics.|
The time that is being subtracting off the EU kills is the time difference from when the US servers and EU servers came online after maintenance this week. You will see a "Norm.Date" column on all of the ranking tables - this date is the normalized date, representing the GMT time of the kill minus the adjustment for delayed access.
KR and TW kills will also be adjusted in the next day or so. Mind you, we are still waiting on the Blizzard API team to enable the dragon soul data on the TW API servers - hopefully this will happen "soon".
This type of normalized ranking is unique to GuildOx. Enjoy!
|The Race Begins!||2 years ago|
|The race to world first has begun with the first heroic bosses falling as the US servers come online. Stay tuned to GuildOx for all the latest action, especially when the regular EU juggernauts start their run.|
Like we did in Firelands, GuildOx will be applying a date adjustment to heroic kills for any regions that have a delayed start to content. The aim of this is to level the playing field. More details to follow...
|Loot Rank Updated With Dragon Soul Bosses||2 years ago|
|Our Loot Rank service has been updated to show drop sources for Dragon Soul raid items (normal and LFR). Be sure to visit Loot Rank for all the latest on Dragon Soul gear, gemming, enchants and reforging advice. Click on the Class Templates on the right of the screen to get started.|
|Try Our Guild Email Alerts||2 years ago|
|With the heroic action about to heat up, I have opened up the Guild Email Alerts to all. Our Guild Email Alerts will send you an email as soon as we see a new boss kill or raid achievement for your nominated guild. It is a nice way to know how your friends or ex-guildies are doing. This facility was previously available to premium members - although we have increased the number of alerts for premium members now to 8. Try it today via the options page.|
|Updating achievements||2 years ago|
|Just a quick note to advise that we recently had an issue which was preventing some of the new Dragon Soul non-boss kill achievements from being recognised. It was fine for guilds that had completed 7/8 bosses or better, but was not working for some guilds of lesser progression. This has been fixed and achievements should be flowing normally again. Be sure to click the update button on your GuildOx guld page to speed up detection of your achievements and recent boss kills.|
|Dragon Soul Normal Mode Cleared||2 years ago|
|Not that it is any great surprise, but several guilds have cleared the Dragon Soul normal mode only hours after patch 4.3 was released on US servers. The real competition begins next week with the unlocking of the heroic enounters.|
In any case, GuildOx is happily receiving progress data. I want to point out that the official API servers are currently putting out a mix of current and old data, meaning that updating your guild progress might take a couple of presses of the "Update" button to register your kills. I have touched based with Blizzard and hope they get this fixed in the next 24 hours.
One other thing to be aware of is that the LFR system is also triggering the achievements and criteria - so some of the non-heroic guild kills are a result of a guild running the LFR system and the 25/10 mode determination may not always be accurate. While this is not ideal, it only affects the boss kills in normal mode except for Madness of Deathwing. I am searching for a better solution but it might have to stay like this for a while. The good news is that the final deathwing kill and all heroics will not be triggered by the LFR system.
Enjoy patch 4.3 and don't forget to vote/rate guilds by clicking on the "stars" on each GuildOx guild page.
|Patch 4.3 Update||2 years ago|
|Patch 4.3 is now live but we are waiting on the API feeds from Battle.net to start sending some new progress data. I have been in touch with Blizzard and hope to see some data "soon".|
Stay tuned for updates.
Also, note that the Fall of Deathwing is not available on the LFR just yet (from Nethaera):
The Fall of Deathwing is not open just yet for the Raid Finder or Heroic. We plan to open this encounter up in approximately one week. We felt it was important to let more people get through the fights in normal difficulty, make videos, strat guides, update their mods, etc. before we let everyone take a crack at Deathwing. We'll keep you informed when this part of the raid opens up for Raid Finder. Keep in mind that it's required to complete the first half to be able to queue for the second, so don't hold back!
