By attempting to implement a policy which favors yourselves in a ranking system, you are in turn devaluing the others. It is as simple as that. You are now trying to frame it such that you don't seem biased by referencing an unrelated thread. Time of clear from start to finish is largely irrelevant. The only thing that matters is the actual time of each individual kill, and a decay over time value.
But you inserting your foot into your mouth is at the very least entertaining.
Also, there are many more than three guilds that have already cleared much of the S&V 8-Man HM operation, they are just not participating in this particular e-peen waving contest.
What is your problem? If u are not interested in e-peen, why are you reading that and try to pick a fight with this guys? They spend their time to provide a ranking for those who are interested. And if you would have any clue you would recognize that there was no attempt to get favored, it's just about bringing a time based factor into the system which makes absolutely sense. So do us a favor and either help to find a better system or remain quiet.
