There are plenty of guilds and communities you can join so that you can do mythics. Check out the forum category on here for information and join one.
As for PVP anyone can do random battlegrounds, so not sure how you can say that you cannot pvp, unless you are seeking to do rated battlegrounds, which has almost always been a club/cliquey category. You can make your own group in rated and invite people to test it out.
You have only done a single M+2 this season (in time) and failed at doing two M+6. At your ilvl you should at least try to get all M+ at level 2 done. Your score should be around 200. Then you try doing all M+(4). Eventually your rio score will grow.
At your current level you will never ever get invited to any 10+ groups.
If you try to join gladiator exp teams of course you won’t get invited without being gladiator exp’ed. You can work it out by playing with low exp’ed plebs to 1500. Then slowly progress to 1800 and so on. It takes a lot of time. But that is how the game works.
It doesn’t benefit you character progression, but it proves your worth. I can do every 10 while sleeping. Yet I didn’t get invited to 10 groups at all. I completed all 7+ then I tried doing all 8+. Now I have enough rio to do a 10 every week and I don’t need to waste time trying to get in to a group. Next season I will probably be forced to do the same thing all over again even though I know all strategies and have no problem completing a 10. But I realize it is worth the effort and I understand why other players won’t invite me without enough rio.
Believe me when I am saying this. If rio didn’t exist. Finding proper groups would be much harder.
1500 is the standard rating everyone can get playing with any noob. Just play a lot and you will get it. Once you get it you push to 1600. Later you do exactly what you have written yourself 1800 rating teams ask for other 1800 rated teams. You join them push to 1900. If you fall to 1700 you ask to play with other at 1700 again. The cycle repeats over and over.
Exactly, you work your way up if you don’t have a high score the previous season. I had to do it at the start of this season because I didn’t do M+ the previous one and I ran everything from +2 onwards to build up early score.
There is a post (probably multiple) complaining about how the ilvl increases in WQ/Emissary rewards is going to have a negative impact on player mentality with regards to M+ which is not receiving any ilvl buff to it’s rewards.
Your post I think is a clear example of how they are right. You don’t wish to actually progress through lower keys because your ilvl is high enough so the loot doesn’t matter to you anymore. That sentiment defeats the whole message behind M+ I’d say. It’s called pushing keys for a reason, instead of jumping keys. You do it 1-2 levels at a time unless you have friends boosting you.
Next thing we know you’re going to complain why timing your +2 key doesn’t reward you with a +6 key to run next just because that’s where your next ilvl upgrade would be from.
