Already in the Sanctum of Domination, it took the Alliance twice as long to fill the Hall of Fame. The Horde was through after 30 days, Alliance guilds took 63 days. Only when both Halls of Fame are filled with 100 guilds will the current Mausoleum of the First raid unlock the ability to play the raid in mythic mode with players from other servers.
While an extra 30 days or so in the Sanctum of Domination wasn't a huge deal, the picture in Mausoleum of the First is quite different. As of this writing, 98 Horde guilds have entered the Mausoleum of the First Hall of Fame. And the Alliance? It currently stands at eight guilds ...Also read these interesting stories 6

Is the hall of fame no longer getting full?
Since Legion, it's been easy to see that progress-oriented players are increasingly drawn to the Horde. Alliance guilds have nowhere near the player pool that the Horde has. You can see this not only in the high-end area, but also when you search for random raids in the group search tool.
Cross-faction play won't solve the problem
With patch 9.2.5 of WoW: Shadowlands, players will be able to play instance-based content with players from the opposing faction. Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has already let it slip in interviews about cross-faction play, however, that the Hall of Fame will not be filled with mixed groups. But in this day and age, things can still change if the feedback from the players is communicated properly.
Anyway, it's questionable whether cross-faction play will be possible in mythic raid mode right away. It was on the test server for patch 9.2.5, but that might have been just for testing purposes.
Time to do away with the Hall of Fame?
The Hall of Fame will not fill up at this rate before Dragonflight's release, and Alliance guilds are likely to run out of motivation at some point. This then means that no cross-server raiding will be possible in the Mausoleum's mythic mode. Either the dungeon master and the rest of the raid will have to be toned down again, or they'll just say goodbye to the Hall of Fame feature completely.
The concept just doesn't work anymore with the current state of WoW: Shadowlands. In the future, we can hope that cross-faction play will lead to the formation of more alliance guilds, which will potentially fill the Hall of Fame. But until then, Blizzard will have to come up with something else. What do you guys think is the best solution to this problem?
