Running of the Trolls 2017 will benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit group that is focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and other youth. The Running of the Trolls will help us celebrate Pride Month, and encourage the younger members of our community, both in and out of World of Warcraft, who may most need support and help through their teenage years to reach out for it, and to encourage the rest of the community to help.
Raider.IO is fairly new to the scene, having gone live only four months ago. Its two-person team has enjoyed keeping their development process open to the community in order to help direct their focus. Mythic Plus Rankings
recently went live - providing the Mythic Plus community with detailed rankings and statistics in a clean, simple-to-navigate format. The site provides players with three different leaderboards on which to see how they measure up in M+ content: All Runs, Timed Runs, and Characters.
All of the M+ leaderboards now have bar graphs showing the class breakdowns by dungeons, affix, M+ level, etc. We added the ability to save an image of any of the graphs as well, so that data junkies can share with their friends.
"All Runs" utilizes the style of Blizzard's own weekly leaderboard, displaying all runs - including those with depleted keys. "Timed Runs" is Raider.IO's default view and only scores runs which have succeeded in beating the dungeon's timer. "Characters" ranks individual players based on a combination of their highest scoring Mythic Plus runs.
Along with these leaderboards comes the added functionality of filter options, allowing users to drill down into more specific leaderboards. For instance someone might want to view only Healer Druids on the Characters board. Or maybe they only wish to view dungeons completed under the effects of the Raging, Necrotic, and Tyrannical affixes within the European servers.
Character pages have also been updated to include the characters' ranks across all roles in which they've completed ranked M+ content, a list of each player's highest scoring recorded runs, and statistics about individual runs including group composition, player ilvl, artifact power, tier bonuses, and recently equipped legendaries.
