My guild’s team (TY SKERAM) just got their win against VC (tournament favorites going in) overturned to a loss because of a 30 stam fire festival buff on a pet that they could not remove, that our hunter unintentionally got while he was getting his consumes from the ah between games.
Now obviously theres NOTHING that can be done about the buff as it persists through death and there was no way to avoid it because u randomly get it while in a major city. It also has next to no impact on the game (its 300 hp on a mostly useless hunter pet)
After all this all I can say is it looks like the tournament admins are siding with VC on this and they tried to force them to rematch… but our hunter’s pet still had the buff as it goes out constantly on our server. Being that it was impossible for them to rematch without this UNREMOVABLE BUFF THAT PERSISTS THROUGH DEATH THAT HAS NO IMPACT ON THE GAME WHATSOEVER they gave VC the win despite TY Skeram already having previously beat them, stomping them 80 hks to 14.
Now for most of you who don’t know the fire festival buffs have been reported in multiple games previously in the tournament and the admins said it was fine and didnt call for a rematch due to them in any other circumstances. Plenty of teams played with the buff and it slid but as SOON as the tournament favorites lose they use it to overturn the loss. We have ample proof via the stream and multple screenshots to show this is the case.
I just wanted to bring attention to this blatant corruption. VC clearly have admins on their sides considering in ALL the other games nothing was done about the fire festival buffs on pets. If you look at the twitch channel every message pertaining to this corruption is IMMEDIATELY removed. So I’m posting this just to spread awareness on this issue. My guild’s team was literally sabotaged out of being the champions of the qualifiers.
