Just watched Wolfcryer’s report on the Twitch ban of streamer TheUltimateEggman.
He was banned, because he found a game breaking mechanic and used it to clear a GR150 solo.
Instead of getting banned, he needs to get PAYED for finding this extremely obscure game breaking mechanic, that Blizz were NOT SMART ENOUGH, INTERESTED ENOUGH or just LAZY to find themselves, even tho it is their job.
Remember how every D3 streamer under the sun, criticized Blizz for the only 1 week PTR ? yeah, I can’t imagine why they would criticize that, RIGHT ?..
It is always ON the developers to assure that the game is consistent, stable and unbreakable.
If something is doable IN-GAME (not talking about TH, bots, hacks etc. external interventions), the assumption is that it is perfectly allowed to be used as part of a players gameplay experience.
Lets take in consideration another example.
Is resetting the PB stacks to spawn the Geysers multiple times bannable exploit, because you can certainly argue that, it is not “intended gameplay” per se and it certainly gives you a huge boost ?
Well, if it is, then MAKE IT SO that it is not possible to do!
If it isn’t, then people that use it, did nothing wrong!
The same way, TheUltimateEggman did nothing wrong!
As of late, gaming and gaming related companies have been known to overreact like crazy, for no reason, so I am not too surprised…
