The WoW developers had decided before all sorts of raid tiers, even before Battle for Azeroth, that they wanted to link the activation of the cross-server Mythic mode of a raid to the filling level of the Hall of Fame. What this meant was that 100 guilds and raid groups on both Horde and Alliance sides had to prove they could take on the Mythic mode of a raid final boss in order to enable cross-realm functionality for all WoW characters.

But over time, the balanced-sounding concept took a hit, because Horde guilds could reliably fill the Hall of Fame, but Alliance guilds often took twice as long. The simple reason for this: the imbalance between Horde and Alliance. Progressive guilds primarily wear the red jerkin of the Horde rather than the blue tabard of the Alliance. Not that there are “too few” alliance players. But most WoW gamers who have serious progress ambitions switched years ago to the faction with the more meaningful folk abilities. Mythic Cross Realm and the Hall of Fame have been stirring things up, especially since Shadowlands, and have been temporarily overturned. So, for those of you who love cross-server Mythic raiding, there’s two exciting news: Mythic Cross Realm will be activated for Dungeon of Incarnations on February 15th, 2023. And in the future, Mythic Cross Realm will be completely decoupled from the Hall of Fame.
Hall of Fame at the end? No!
That doesn’t mean that the Hall of Fame will be abolished, no. But the fact that the activation of the cross-server Mythic raids breaks all developer schedules will no longer happen. In the future, there will be a schedule communicated by Blizzard, as Community Manager Kaivax notes in the WoW forums. Below you will find the translation, you can see the original here.
“With the weekly reset in each region for the week of February 14, 2023, we will be enabling cross-realm groups on Mythic Vault of Incarnations difficulty. [Anm. d. Red.: In Europa also am 15. Februar 2023] This represents a shift in philosophy that has emerged over the past few raid tiers, where we’ve seen the pace at which the Hall of Fame has filled for both factions is no longer consistent with the timing we’d like for the players would have chosen overall.
We will continue to offer a Hall of Fame for this and future raids. To qualify for cross-realm groups, simply have at least 16 players from the same guild participating in the raid. For future raids, we’re better planning when Mythic cross-realm difficulty will be available. We’d like to keep the option open to vary the timing as we don’t yet know the circumstances we’ll be monitoring in the future, but we intend to make more announcements like this to give players time to readjust organize.” Do you have an opinion on this?
