Hey everyone,

As many of you have noticed, we're not allowed to make pre-mades cross realm for mythic raids, and even if you do some tries on a boss, you'll be locked.

I want to ask everyone to jump in and support a call for more flexibility.

Many of us have started WoW in its early years, and we were younger then, but most of us have many more real life commitments now. As a result it is now harder to dedicate a certain time and day schedule to raids with a guild. The premade system was a complete blessing for this... right until you jump into mythic.

There are no realm-first achievements anymore, so there's really no reason at all not to allow the same flexibility in mythic as in heroic when it comes to organizing pre-mades.

Please Blizzard, allow us to queue cross-realm for mythic raids, and/or allow us to have attempts on a boss with more then 1 specific group.

Mythic is a different concept from all other difficulties and it's not meant to be PUG friendly.
Not enabling cross-realm mythic is a design decision. Enabling this option would imply that this content should be doable by PUGs, and because it clearly isn't, it would only lead to frustration, complaints and nerf requests.

What is happening is that some players are finding mythic Kargath to be doable with very good PUGs, but we have to keep in mind that this is only happening because he's the very first raid boss from this expansion, so he's a bit more accessible than the rest.
When Blackrock Foundry (our next raid tier) launches, it's unlikely that the difficulty level from the first boss will be proportional to Kargath's when compared to the rest of the bosses of each respective tier.
Also, we're likely going to enable cross-realm mythic Highmaul when the next tier arrives.
