Am I missing something, or does that screenshot prove exactly 0 about anything anyone said.

Not that it matters, guess it got deleted already.

Guys,
8man community is planning on introducing a score system whiuch allows you to skip bosses and still get points (deducted, but still some). Hope we are not going that direction?

Same here.

Its perfectly logical to be against it for various reasons. The main one being... with Biowares track record, we really don't know which bosses will be freebies and which bosses won't. Lets say Dashroode is a complete nightmare but the 2nd and 3rd bosses are a joke. Some guild QQs and claims Dashroode is impossible and skips it, thus getting the 2nd and 3rd boss killed almost instantly. Now they have compiled points that other guilds won't be getting for some time as they will be working on Dashroode. In order to keep up, they will be almost forced to skip it just to get the points they are missing out on.

The linear clear bonus in the 8man thread is hardly a bonus. The example I just listed would make the linear clear bonus almost non-existent. The Linear Clear Bonus is just a way for the guilds, who actually view progression as progression, a way to keep up. That should NOT be the way it works. The Linear Clear Bonus should be an incentive to keep all guilds going in order.


My vote is for 16man guilds to keep clearing linearly. Honestly? All the 16man guilds will probably do it anyways as we are all pretty tight knit when it comes to rules and competition. We all seem to be on pretty good terms so I'm sure the consensus will be for linear clears only.

Hi all of you.

First of all, I totally agree with the above, about not skipping bosses. And I sincerely do hope all the 16man guilds agree on this. As said previously, imagine we were tracking SM progression ? No possibility to skip bosses or anything. So let's just use the same thing for NiM. Let's not skip bosses, do them as they come at us.

But whatever. Good luck to all the guilds who'll NOT skip bosses. Hope the best of luck to you guys, and we'll be following the streams <3

I think my GM will pardon me for going ahead and say we're also 110% against skipping boss. I am pretty sure this won't even be a subject in this progression race.

Have no fear fellow 16 man guilds. When we sat down and created our guidelines we added in the requirement to have downed the prior boss before getting credit on the current one. It is spelled out within the "Notes" Tab on the spreadsheet

Let those 8 man's cause drama and cut corners. Everyone knows the big boys play 16.

Indeed - as long as I'm tracking it on our side, skipping won't be allowed.

Anyway, it is already decided and it is pointless to discuss in this thread - which is about the current tier of content.

Please take this discussion elsewhere if you want to continue to discuss.

Thanks!
