Fix for Repeat Instance Bug Exploit

We’ve recently become aware of a bug that could be exploited to allow instanced encounters to be completed repeatedly. We have developed a fix for the issue, and we are in the process of deploying it worldwide.

Realm restarts are scheduled for 3:00 a.m. PDT (6:00 a.m. EDT) in order to apply this fix.

As soon as possible, we will identify those who knowingly abused this bug in exploitative manner. We will then take appropriate punitive measures.

As a reminder, Blizzard’s End User License Agreement defines cheats as “methods not expressly authorized by Blizzard, influencing and/or facilitating the gameplay, including exploits of any in-game bugs, and thereby granting you and/or any other user an advantage over other players not using such methods.”

As always, thank you for your feedback on this matter.

Bans incoming. hopefully. and the exploiters knew what they were doing was wrong and did it anyways…No sympathy from me. You get what’s coming to ya.

Delete their toons, all of them and ban them until layering has been taken out completely. Thats the only fair resolution to this matter.

Just get rid of layering now instead of waiting. Again and again players find ways to exploit it. Time for it to go.

There needs to be some perma bans on this one or I’m out. This one would definitely be the straw that broke the camels back for me.

Trust me, if anyone noteworthy gets punished, you’ll hear about it.

…just not from Blizzard.
