Guild Banned Over Star Augur Exploit: Video Added

Recommended Posts


Monk shenanigans on Star Augur Etraeus lead to yet another ban in this Tier, after the much publicized Helya ones.


Update: Fusion have released their video of the kill, including the part that got them banned. It wasn't hearthstone related it seems, but a Monk used an ability to accomplish the same thing, aka get rid of the P3 add. There was/is another bug, involving hearthstone to do that, but apparently that was being used (for a short time) by another guild (who didn't get the kill and stopped using it), hence the small confusion.


The drama is accumulating again, as we have another ban in the top-end raiding community, after the three from Trial Of Valor/Helya. Russian guild Fusion surprised everyone earlier today as they were the first to follow Serenity and Exorsus to Elisande, and got a World third kill on Star Augur Etraeus, just 15 minutes before Method.

As it turns out, that World third wasn't going to last long. Fusion was banned for exploiting some hearthstone shenaningans (better not to go into too much detail there, suffice it to say it made the encounter much easier), and while we don't know for how long exactly, some rumors say until February 8th, which means they're pretty much out of the race. (Update: it's an 8 day ban.)

The other big news was, as we already mentioned, that Method have indeed joined Serenity and Exorsus on top, so we now have the three favorites battling it out for first access to Gul'dan. There are also 22 guilds just behind those three, on 7/10,  trying hard to down Star Augur, hopefully without resorting to dirty tricks like this.

i do not understand what happened

That's kind of the point, we can't really go into details about what exactly happened, Blizzard dont like exploits being distributed, but they used a hearthstone to make the fight easier :D

Had to be russians cheating again..

Shame on you for saying such a thing. I'm sick and tired of the nationalistic crap that is constantly thrown at the Russian community. That moderators here and on the official forums and in the game let this garbage exist is revolting. We have enough troubles in this world without bringing more tension and hatred into the games we play to escape them.

If they were cheating, or exploiting, they should be banned. But their nationality has nothing to do with it. Cheaters come in all nationalities, colors, religions, etc.

But usually from Russia. Calm your tits.

It means absolutely nothing, and a post like Huntaer's brings nothing to the table aside from taking a jab at a specific nationality.

"Usually from Russia" let's also conveniently ignore the various non-Russian guilds who got banned for abusing bugs during progression raiding.

Cheating and exploits certainly should be immediately banned. However, at the same time, you almost have to give them some credit for creativity. A lot of the exploits and such I've seen are really clever. The phase 3 add manipulation is something I really would have never thought of. So, they cheated, they should be punished, but its rather amusing to see the crazy stuff people come up with.

      We're looking at how many raid bosses each World of Warcraft expansion has introduced.
      This chart, created by Reddit user throwaway4201251315, lays out the count of raid bosses across all WoW expansions, including Dragonflight.

      The chart's fine details are hard to make out, but it's clear that the original Vanilla version launched with the highest number of raid bosses (about 55-60), whereas Dragonflight had the fewest (around 25-30), a figure similar to what we saw in Cataclysm. Notably, Blizzard's decision to skip .3 patches and the introduction of Fated Raids have contributed to a declining trend in the number of raid bosses in both Shadowlands and Dragonflight.
      It seems that players generally prefer raids with 8-9 bosses, finding larger raids like Ny'alotha and Sepulcher to be exhausting.

      Collecting mounts really has become as much of a part of WoW as raiding, dungeons, questing and PvP at this point, as players constantly want more and more. Today we're taking a look at another hirumaredx video, this time focusing on the 10 rarest mounts players can still obtain today!
      While I'm sure this list will be disputed, it's still fun to see what could be considered some of the most rare rides on Azeroth, especially if you happen to own one already! The list is based off of both drop chances and actual difficulty to obtain, as the first one is basically a 100% "drop", but will take a long time to get.

      The axe-wielding, tree-burning dragon has a sense of humor, as he will laugh at anyone that dies to his fire during the raid encounter (and you get an achievement if you didn't get it before!
      The Still Standing in the Fire achievement came along with patch 10.1 and Fyrakk Assaults. It was a little tricky to get as you had to find where to stand and die to the fire, which didn't really 1-shot you. Luckily with 10.2, it got a whole lot easier (well, for raiders anyway). The achievement is named after the original, where Deathwing had to kill you either during the Dragon Soul raid or when he was breathing all over Azeroth.
      As spotted by ah_kooky_kat, dying to Fyrakk in the raid also triggers the achievement, and he still laughs at you!

      The very old-school WeakAura in the screenshot also got a lot of attention the the thread below.
