Highlights from the chat include:
Prep during Heroic week felt very rushed, due to the increased emphasis on PvP. Both guilds didn't know you could get Elite weapons from the Great Vault. If they had known, they would have done less splits to PvP instead.
Nobody likes the reliance on BoEs for raiding. With how there's less loot in Shadowlands, BoEs are even more important, leading to astronomical amounts of gold spent. This also has the unfortunate side effect of sidelining lesser-known guilds that are talented who fall behind in gear.
Finding healers at the highest level of play is extremely difficult for recruitment.
It was exciting seeing both guilds fight Phase 3 Sire Denathrius at the same time with low wipes, and that type of content would occur more frequently with a global release.
Everyone is in favor of a global release. Lots of cons to starting later, like missing out on the creative problem-solving element, always feeling behind, and missing out on viewership for early bosses.
The challenges created by the staggered start led to Echo turning their streams off close to the weekly reset, to protect the advantage they had working on Denathrius. Limit also considered turning their streams off on Denathrius as well. Both guilds were respectful and understanding when the competition turned streams off for an advantage.
Streaming and money is nice, but the biggest benefit to streaming is retention. Difficult to maintain another job and raid--you need to treat playing WoW as a full time job. Some nostalgia for the 'good old days' of not streaming, but streaming is the future.
