So, the lich king encounter was released this week. One of the top guilds, ensidia, reached him and fought him. This boss had never been on testrealm, and ofc blizzards testing is bad enough to let a bug through.
Because of this bug the fight was made slightly easier, and ensidia got the first 25man kill, only to see the bug hotfixed the next day.
Blizzard: "****, lich king was bugged. What do we do now? Oh i know, lets ban the guys who found it and take their achiev and loot away"
Ensidia: Keep it up guys! we might get world first! YES! WE ****ING GOT IT!!!
next day they were banned for 3 days.
The bug () was an engineering bomb causing the collapsing floor to rebuild. These bombs are used alot by most top guilds. Also, if ensidia noticed the bug (they say they didnt) why would they contact blizzard who takes atleast 3h to respond, instead of keeping on trying? its not like other guilds did it, and alot of guilds uses these bombs.
some big group killed an NPC
and blizzard had a bug!
this is horrible
On the positive side, blizzurd keep banning PvMers please.
Uh. I played up until ToGC in one of the top 100 guilds in the world (Spike Flail) and I can tell you that nobody uses Engineering bombs. o_o
top..... 10,000 or something like that <_<
I need a broad-in mah horizon!
and dis book has so many bettorers
Back when I played WoW, I kept up with high end progression and knew a few people in some decent guilds. I distinctly remember Ensidia (Nihilum) exploiting C'thun, Eredar Twins, Hodir Hard Mode, Mimiron Hard Mode, and I'm pretty sure there are a few more I don't know about/can't think of. You would think after that many world first kills by exploit they would realize their luck is bound to catch up to them.
I think it's funny how fanbois rage at Blizzard for banning someone for using an exploit. It's like the guy in Ulduar who got the GM weapon and were one shotting bosses. The weapon was GIVEN to them by a GM (mistake I believe, or intentional can't remember). However, they were all banned and achievements removed because they used an obvious exploit. Was it their fault that the exploit was "exploitable." Not really, blizzard gave the weapon to them. Same as it isn't Ensidia's fault the bug was in the game. However, it's the choice to use that bug that warrants a ban. What happened to the American guild who killed Yogg - 0 before everyone else by exploiting pets in the brain room? They got banned. It was blizzard's fault that bug was in the game, but they exploited it and deserved the ban.
pets? wasnt it a pally gaining aggro by healing a lifetapping lock in the brain?
And i do think that they should have removed loot and achiev, but given them a chance to do it the right way
