I do agree that the word “exploitative” being very vague is a concern, to me. But, I am grateful that they did this Change instead of just actioning against accounts for simply going over the 30 Instance Cap. Personally. I’m not quite on the train that Blizzard “doesn’t care”. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t have Classic, to begin with.
We’re in the same boat about playing the game, for a long time, along with being on the Forums, for a long time. I believe Blizz is pretty vague with their announcements, personally. My money is they don’t want people to look up how to do these exploits.
Likewise, with my Dungeon Spam conclusion.
Again, “generally” doesn’t mean “all the time”. You’re absolutely right about the Layering and Black Lotus. When it comes to Exploits, however why would Blizz tell us how to Exploit their game? That doesn’t make any sense.
For me, personally, I think the 30 Instance Cap is saying it. Do we really need Blizz to say “hey guys, we don’t want you to do more than 30 Instances, in a 24 hour period.”?
I mean, we even have the 5 Instances in 1 hour Cap, as well. I think that’s plenty of information in letting us know, where Blizz stands on how many Dungeons, they want us to be doing.
And, I respect that.
We can still have a conversation about it, in a respectful manner.
