In this post, we’ll update the score required to earn the Cryptic Hero title for Shadowlands Season 3. As a reminder, the title will go to all players who end Shadowlands Mythic+ Season 3 with a Mythic+ Rating in the top 0.1% in each region.
Updated September 7
In this region, if Season 3 ended today, the title would go to those who scored at least:
Well I have a list of the amount of people who are currently within the cutoff, without being a part of the usual meta comp.
3 dks (not blood)
1 bm hunter
3 mm hunters
51 brewmaster monks
2 mw monks
So yes, some specs are worse than others but I’d say that’s a lot of people.
It’s also magnified by the fact that most great players tend to go towards the better specs.
It is after all an achievement that not many people will get, so it makes sense that it takes a lot to get it but to blame a bad spec is kinda lazy. I’d somewhat accept that excuse if you ended up 5 points below the cutoff on the last day but if you’re only 3k score or whatever, that’s not your spec.
I fully agree that the balance is off and if you’re a very off-meta spec, you’re definitely holding your team back. The game will never be even close to balanced. It can’t have as much variety as it has without also being unbalanced.
But yeah you’d have to work harder in order to get the title if you’re off-meta but that’s a choice everyone has to make for themselves. Either you work hard by being a “bad” spec or you work hard to always be a good or decent spec
So the latest update regarding the required score was done today on Tuesday, 2nd of August around 07:00 CET time. And of course our dear “Blue poster” puts Updated August 1, completely disregarding the European time zone and EU-wow forums in general. Next time please assign a person that actually lives in our time zone or at least respects the time zone difference.
