The Race to World First in Mausoleum of the Firstrecently came to an end as the longest event in its history to date. For almost four weeks now, the top guilds of WoW: Shadowlands raided to defeat the final boss on the highest difficulty level. However, many are still despairing of the bosses before that.
The only guild that has managed to defeat the dungeon master on mythic so far was the EU guild Echo. While others continue their fight in the hardest raid in WoW history, Echo's co-CEOs Rogerbrown and Scripe took a moment to reflect on the events of the past 18 days.Also read these interesting stories 5

The debrief on this raid tier also focused on Echo's top competitor, Liquid. Players were close to burnout after three weeks and 16-hour days, and paused the event near the end . "I think it's nice to have a lot of hard bosses instead of just one," Scripe notes, "but I don't think there needs to be that many of them in a raid tier." I know a lot of people disagree with that opinion," he says, continuing, "They [WoW Esports fans] want eleven bosses and a huge raid, but in my opinion, for the Esports part and the fun of it, I prefer six to seven, maybe eight bosses at the most, and all of those bosses are pretty hard.
"Even the intro boss should be decently hard, and you do two races instead. The mechanics of the first bosses are really cool; they're really fun to play, and because they're so easy, we barely get to play them!"
Rogerbrown said smaller raids at shorter intervals would also counter WoW's (Buy Now ) content drought. "I think eleven bosses is a bit much. I think they [the developers] tend to do that, especially at the end of an expansion. It's not that it's bad, but why not make less extensive raids and release them a few months apart. Regarding the raid in
front of Mausoleum, the Sanctum of Domination, he confesses, "I got so bored farming that raid over and over again
Imagine if it was two raids released two months apart, then it would feel much fresher ... I think if you release more regular bosses, you can tune it right and have two awesome raids."
Time will tell what lessons Blizzard learns from this Race to World First. The Mausoleum race was more like a marathon, which is why they even postponed the in-house Mythic Plus tournament. Do you think multiple raids with fewer bosses would be the solution, as Scripe and Roger suggest?
