Just thought all the people doing Challenge modes might want to see these. And I'm sure its happening to other servers as well.

This isn't a rant about Blizz putting more stuff in to Hardcore gamers etc. So if your going to do that Please move along and pick from the over 10k threads which do that or make your own.

I was just scrolling through a few of the Standings for our Server (staghelm) in Challenge Modes. We, my guild mates and I, were top standing on a few and we have not done them in a bit so I wanted to see what had changed. I was surprised by what I saw on one listing..

Whats concerning is that the Top spot is held by a group which was made up of 5 people from 4 different Servers! This brings up some serious concerns:
How can they be "Server Top" on Staghelm when only 1 person is from Staghelm?
Is it fair that you only need 1 person from a Server to gain a particular server's top spot?
I do seriously hope that this is an oversight. In order for it to be a "Server Best" I think a big ground rule needs to be set in place, "All Group members must be from the same server to earn a "Server Best" Title/Rating when doing Challenge Modes."

I don't see the issue so long as he is getting his times legitimately and not paying for them.

The issue is that a mostly off server group is counted as realm best, which sort of defeats the purpose of having a realm leaderboard. I'm not overly concerned with it, but it does seem rather silly.

The hunter in question is on the server or it wouldn't even be an issue. It's pretty obvious he bought his gold runs though.

Well, maybe. He had challenge conqueror: gold when his hunter only had 4 golds.

edit: did that man get 5 golds on one character and 4 on another?

edit2: Only 4 mans are showing up on the CM runs. wat.

His achievements show he got 3 bronze/silver/gold runs on the 26th and then the other 6 bronze/silver/gold runs on the 27th. He clearly paid to get carried if not piloted through the CMs. He shouldn't be eligible for server first ranks, but I doubt Blizzard would do anything about it.

Oddly enough, everyone in that run got their golds in the same two day span.

So basically the entire group was people who paid to have their characters played by other people through all the CMs. I suppose it's too much to hope for that they'll all have their achievements and rewards removed.

Can you imagine how much gold one could make doing that?

People use sites like openraid.us to make CRZ groups for things like this.

It's not against the rules of the game, and the only issue is that they shouldn't have YOUR REALM'S top spot.

The person neither paid for or cheated to get his runs, and most likely worked with the other people to do them on the two days that they got the times.

Its not hard to imagine some hardcore people going at it nonstop over two days to get them. Especially if they are good, and have a good group composition.
