4.3 Looking for Raid Exploits Lead to Multiple Bans in Top Guilds
05/12/2011 alle 21:45
Every patch has its bugs and 4.3 was no exception apparently.
When 4.3 hit last week, the Looking for Raid feature brought joy to many pugs and now it's also now bringing misery to quite a few hardcore guilds. As it turns out, there was a loot bug with the LFR system and master looting. Instead of reporting them, however, most people chose to exploit it to keep their competitive edges.
Members of many top guilds in the world such as Paragon and Method
queued up multiple times through a loophole that allowed players to get loot for more than one run in a row. While LFR is supposed to limit players to be eligible for loot only their first run through, regardless of whether they loot or not, this loophole allowed them to farm for early tier 13 bonuses to give them that extra boost in PvE content.
The end result? Many players opened their emails to find themselves with an 8 day ban, just in time for the holidays--and progression farming. Heroics unlock this Tuesday and this was going to be the last epic push for progression hardcore raiders before Mists of Pandaria. Now many of these guilds now have entire rosters banned, along with their new gear removed. If the bans stick, this should greatly affect world rankings this tier.
So what do you think? Did they get what they deserved--or is an 8 day ban a little too severe for some 384 ilevel loot? Did you exploit or do you know anyone who did?
Edit: Paragon just posted their statement about
looking for raid exploiting
, generally apologizing for abusing the system.
There has been a lot of misinformation going around, so to clear things up, here is a truthful account of what exactly happened with the LFR and what we have to say about it:
The patch hit EU servers on Wednesday. We started off with our 5x Firelands runs to wrap up legendaries and called it a night. For Thursday, we had an elaborate plan to run a personal LFR raid for every main character to get the maximum amount of loot.
As we were doing the first few runs, we noticed an unrealistic amount of tier pieces on some guilds' armory profiles, which we thought was unattainable through normal means. We started looking into it, and found out that you can loot passed loot on bosses, regardless of save status, if you zone out and back into the instance. This did not provide the raid with any extra loot, but it did eliminate a major portion of the RNG that would have been involved in simply doing personal runs for everyone.
We acknowledge that using this unintended behavior, which was quite clearly a bug, to our gain, was wrong. The fact that others were using it as well is no justification for doing it ourselves. We apologize for doing it, and accept whatever consequences follow.
