You showed us the data, that is good. You know exactly which account acquired the uniques , AND You mentioned clearly about fairness so you understand the impact of this and how this may affect the integrity of your game and you as a company. Yet, you chose to do nothing about it.
it is really sad a large company like this would not own up to their responsibility to do what is right. The number of accounts which acquired the uniques through exploit or bugs isn’t even the focus point here, what people wanted or waiting to see is how they would resolve this issue.
Nice slap on the wrist BS that sets the precedent for unfair treatment of the playerbase and keeps the items stupidly impossible to get and punishes everyone for not being in the right place at the right time during their hastily implemented poorly tested patch.
Beyond absurd, just REMOVE THEM.
Also, lower the rarity of these damn things, if this incident isn’t the catalyst to get the dev team to realize that players are not happy with the astronomical odds, what will get that message accross?
Their announcement made quitting a no brainer for me. I was not entirely thrilled with the D4 end game and now they basically said they know who exploited but won’t do anything to remove the items? It’s unacceptable and quit worthy. It’s just disappointing that I will have to tell my friends at work that I quit because Blizzard didn’t maintain fairness with their game.
If your a streamer, feel free to exploit everything, record it and don’t worry because they are above TOS.
Now this. They clearly know where these shako are, they say as much and then they basically tell the entire player base that they are just going to let it slide. I don’t care about the shako itself but what a messed up message to send to your player base.
Exactly. There is a reason I don’t buy Powerball tickets. Because the odds are obvious. And now Blizzard has said that they want those same odds for those items. I appreciate that. It makes it that easier not to waste time on my max level character.
