To jump into the unknown and to experience new content is a thrill for any gamer but to experience the competitive side is a whole different story. The idea of being the first in the world to conquer the content is something few can fathom. These teams go hard in a different kind of competition. A careful balance of speed, efficiency, and adaptation, players compete with the rest of the world to see just who made the best use of each pull. One has to appreciate the spectacle that unfolds as players blindly take on the toughest raids in a race to be the first the world to conquer.
Congratulations to Team Ston3 from Angered FC (Europe) for being the first in the world to beat the entirety of Alexander Creator Savage!

For the rest of the coverage, Frosty is still documenting kills on the Google Doc and a graphic with the World First groups is still to come. I will also try to get interviews with some of the players that participated. You can follow Frosty on Twitter at @FrostyTVStream

Thank you to all of those who participated! This was my first World First race that I have followed and it was very fun to wake up and see clears already posted and to introduce a different kind of competition to an E-Sports centered audience. I hope 4.0’s raiding will bring the same hype 3.4’s did and I’ll definitely be there to cover it. Until next time, Genos Axel from Famfrit signing out!
