Introducing Connected Realms to Realm Leaderboards

November 11, 2017
UPDATE: Based on user feedback, we've made this new feature toggle-able.

Simply head to your Manage Account page, and click on Enabled/Disabled for the Connected Realm option (will take a moment to reload the page to save your preference).

Disabling Connected Realms will mean other users will view your rank based on your specific server on your profile page. Your default view on the Realm Leaderboards will also show rankings based on a single server, however this can be temporarily changed by checking Show Connected Realms and selecting Go to reload the Realm Leaderboards page.

Thank you to all of our users for your patience and feedback on the Connected Realms feature!

After much consideration, we're pleased to announce that the WarcraftPets Realm Leaderboards will now show Connected Realms for US and EU regions.

Example of Connected Realms listing
Realms that are grouped on a Connected Realm will be shown on the Leaderboards by default. Users part of the same Connected Realm will be listed with which server they originate from (example pictured right).

Note that the addition of Connected Realms may affect your current realm rank, as it calculates ranks based on all players across all servers in the same group. This shift in ranks will be shown on both the Realm Leaderboards page as well as the Realm & Rank section on profile pages.

Connected Realms will not change the Top 500 Pet Collections or your Site Rank listed on your profile page.

This change is a work in progress, and we're open to making additional adjustments based on community feedback. A discussion thread can be found in our Suggestions Forum.

Thank you to Weena, our Lead Website Developer, for his ongoing work on WarcraftPets. We have a few more website updates planned for the near future, so stay tuned.

And thank you to our members for your continued support!

Definitely not happy about this connected realm list. There are about a dozen people on my home realm, Scarlet Crusade, that are pretty hard core about pet collecting, myself included, and I was always happy to normally be in the top 10. I went from #9 to #22 overnight. Now, it's a fight to get back to where I was. Ugh.

Do not want. I'd like to be able to toggle it on and off at the very least.

Holy Crap!

 

 

I just spent the last month busting my tail to be the top collector on my realm, and overnight I became the 13th. The new top group of collectors has pets I will never be able to get. I feel like someone just knocked the wind out of my sails.

 

 

Please make connected realms toggleable. I appreciate the work, and I like the feature, but I'm more concerned with my actual realm rank than connected realm rank.

I am not happy about this, I am an Eonar player, not really interested in the realms that blizzard foisted upon us, I think we should have the choice of seeing our own realm without the connected realms. I know you are saying it is a work in progress, it might have been an idea to ask people what they wanted before implementing what you want. Very disappointed.

Extremely disappointed. I would have preferred it be an option. I was #3 on my realm and am now bumped down to #15. It definitely affected my motivation to collect and level more pets in the near future. I feel like Sisyphus.

I never liked the connected realms either.

Count me in the dislike column.

I have been on my realm faithfully for ten years.

It is special to me.  I really don't care about seeing the other realm's scores.

Please  make it an option to just see my own realm.

This is a great site that has done awesome things for pet collectors.

Let's keep it that way!!

I am Disappointed in the combined realm.  I dont have most of the ultra rares, so me being in the top 10 was cool.   now as others have said, less motivated to collect more.

I am iffy on this. I would have preferred it be an option - show me my realm or show me my connected realms.

 

 

It didn't change my standing, but I feel REALLY bad for the people who were on our connected realm, who were 1-3 who are now not only behind, but REALLY far behind. Our realm has a large number of INSANE pet collectors, and it seems really unfair to have made the other realm compete with us.

 

I do like knowing though that I really am the biggest nerd on my realms.

I went from #1 to #5 and the people ahead of me have pets that I will never be able to get :( I just don't have those kind of resources. It really sucks.

I do not like this change, a realm is a realm.  If you want to show connected realms, offer it as an option or another listed ranking.  Don't replace our realm ranking with this garbge.

Please remove this feature. I went from #4 to #13. Way to kill one's motivation. Very disappointed in this site.

Adding my 2¢ worth:  I personally care very, very little how I stack up against my sister connected realms' Collecters.  In fact I don't even look at where I'm at in relation to the opposite Faction's Collectors.  That's just me, what I choose to look at.  I can certainly see where others might really like this new "more accurate" feature.  You really, REALLY should have made it optional before you implemented it.  Forcing everyone to view it this way was rather ham-handed. :)

Not too happy about this.  I have been working hard to move myself up in the top 20s and all the sudden I'm 77 :( . In fact I had just reached 20 and was almost to 19th and was excited to almost been in the teens.

  I feel like I am starting all over again. I wish there was a toggle button as others have been saying.  Very frustrating.

Very disappointing!!!  To be ranked in my realms top 20’s with many obtainable pets still available to me, was an extremely motivating position to keep me playing and collecting.  Now I’m suddenly dropped all the way to rank 60?  What’s the point anymore…?

 

 

Giving us the option to either continue looking at our own ream, or view the combined realm stats would have been better for everyone.

I too understand the necessity for this, yet personally it's a bit of a bummer; I was number 3 on Anachronos and working on getting a few more pets which, for the first time ever for me, would put me in the number one slot. The prospect of this of course really motivated and excited me. Now I'm number 8 and the highest, for sure, I'll be able to get is number 5.

 

So it's a bummer, yet I do recognize the new system is a more accurate representation of collections.

A toggle would be nice but its a cool feature at any rate.

I thought it was a bug when I saw I dropped from 8 to 36. I like the connected realms. Ive always wondered who were the hardcore pet collectors on the connected realms ( My realm is grouped with 4 others). This makes it much more convieant to check out others collections while seeing how my own stacks up.

 

A toggle option to see just my own realm standings might be nice but I hope the connected realms sticks around in in form or another.
