think he means arena cheaters? or do blizz actually care about people running a dungeon
This is Blizzards practice and it’s probably even stated somewhere here on the forums. Feel free to dig it up.
I also want to say that this snarky, tongue-in-cheek, i-know-you-know-im-full-of--but-you-cant-prove-it, insufferable smarmy is truly disgusting. No idea what gave your generation the idea that this is acceptable or smart but all it does is give away that you know what you’re doing is wrong, don’t care and you dare someone to call you on it.
That anger you carry isn’t healthy. Eat a Snickers maybe?
Huh? They don’t have to warn you that an exploit is an exploit before they do something about it. That would explicitly reward the first people to exploit, who would get warned without punishment.
We already have another example IN THIS XPAC of people being banned for exploiting the bugged quest in Ogri’la.
Did that matter for Ogri’la flasks?
License Limitations. Blizzard may suspend or revoke your license to use the Platform, or parts, components and/or single features thereof, if you violate, or assist others in violating, the license limitations set forth below. You agree that you will not, in whole or in part or under any circumstances, do the following:
Cheating: Create, use, offer, promote, advertise, make available and/or distribute the following or assist therein:
- cheats; i.e. methods not expressly authorized by Blizzard (whether accomplished using hardware, software, a combination thereof, or otherwise), influencing and/or facilitating 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;
“it’s not cheating or an exploit, it’s a clever use of game mechanics which Blizz tolerates and actually encourages” - WoW Classic / WoW Classic General Discussion - World of Warcraft Forums (blizzard.com)
Here, read it from the horse’s mouth.
They are not going to band for something that is not a forced exploit. The player did not make the lockout go away. Bliz didn’t add the lockout.
The Lockout is a common knowledge for everyone. Heroics can only be run once a day.
People who did it, have done several chained runs.
That means: People got exalted yesterday, got all exalted rewards, including the JC recipes, got trinkets, etc.
That is clearly the violation of the ToS that I’ve simply linked here:
They will remove the rewards and issue suspension whenever it fits.
If they don’t sanction these exploiters, they will keep sending a message that there is no punishment and the only thing that can get you actually suspended is being mean to others in game.
Technically the second they said “a hotfix is coming” is your warning to stop exploiting…
The player didn’t make the flask quest bugged either. And yet… bans were handed out.
The line between “clever use of game mechanics” and “exploit” is wherever Blizzard decides it should be, and they can change their minds at any time, without warning players not to do something that is obviously not intended.
Also does anyone have any doubts that this guy was running H MGT on his main yesterday after this flaccid attempt at defending it? lol
Reality check hitting hard
Nope, not this time.
Nah, but they DID put transfers and the boost on sale again lol… Blizz shakedown ENGAGED!
That is not why we’re having a maintenance.
Cherry pick however you like. The full scope of that Blue post says a lot more. The OP made a very broad statement that people are getting banded.
I stay, Bliz has a habit of not banning. The link I posted is their rational for not banning. So until there’s wide spread bans happing. I’d stick with “Define: exploit” because it’s a grey area that only Blizzard can solidify.
It seems that you have done several runs of MgT heroic and now you’re in shambles.
Lol cmon bro… You and I both know that this was an exploit and not clever use of game mechanics.
Clever use of game mechanics would be the way classic vanilla players could solo angerforge
Knowing the lockouts for heroics are once a day and spamming it as much as you can before blizzard catches it is exploiting.
I play retail, heroics are def not once a day there I didnt know omg.
they removed heroic lockouts on retail recently, only mythic has lockout.
