We are listing guilds by official Guild Cataclysm raid achievement progression from Armory. The bad thing however is that there are no "partial" achievements for DS heroic bosses (only for DW heroic), like there is for normal mode, so there is no official way to track heroic bosses individually in DS.
On our progress list, guilds are scored by: guild achievement > partial boss achievement (normal modes only for reasons stated above) > the amount of days it took to complete that achievement.
Okay, so the fact that we cleared DS before 2/3 of the guilds listed above us doesn't bump us up any? I believe we were the 8th guild on Thunderlord to defeat Madness of Deathwing, but we are listed at rank 22.
Unfortunately, there is no official way to track guild progress on DS heroic bosses, except for last boss, because Blizzard didn't create Guild achievement which tracks all heroic bosses, only last boss. We could track how many players in each guild got the achievement, but it's not as reliable as Guild achievements on Armory.
For example, if some players leave the guild = no progress, some people would ask to recognize progress for guilds with lets say 7 players who got the achievement at the same time, but maybe they did it on 25 man with 2-3 more guilds, and that's not a "guild kill". We will try to improve our tracking but honestly the best improvement would be if Blizzard could start to create all guild achievements with partial progress, like this
I understand what you're saying. I'm just confused about what you wrote in your first response.

There are currently 24 guilds on Thunderlord that have 8/8 DS normal. All of them have that guild achievement, so all are equal in that regards.
Partial boss achievement doesn't really apply, because all of those guilds are 8/8 DS normal and none have defeated all of DS on Heroic.
Finally, we have "the amount of days it took to complete that achievement". Subdividing in that regards, our guild should be listed as #13. We are, instead, listed as #22.
However you have killed Baradin hold boss, Al'akir, Nefarian, Cho'gall and Ragnaros later then most/all of them. We might implement separate tab for guild progress for latest tier but at the moment, Guild progress tab represents overall guild progress for whole expansion.
