Wow, talk about FOMO. A group of exploiters ran wild on Azeroth over the weekend, murdering thousands of innocent characters, NPC and player-characters alike. The dastardly act left entire hubs devoid of life by taking advantage of an unspecified exploit. Blizzard takes any use of an exploit very seriously and launched an investigation as soon as it became aware of the issue. A hotfix was deployed shortly after news began to break.
News of mass death travels fast.
Exploiting at any level is never acceptable to me, but I would have loved to have witnessed the devastation with my own character. Like Baron’s bomb and the ZG plague bugs before it, it’s interesting to be a part of the “WTF” moments in a game’s history. The images and videos compiled from this latest shenanigan does remind me of the pre-Wrath of the Lich King plague event.
I’ll just have to live the event digitally thanks to WoWInsider.
