Guild Banned Over Star Augur Exploit: Video Added

Recommended Posts

X7x42oZ.jpg

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.

      With weekly maintenance on February 25, more Coalescing Visions will start dropping from Assaults and Daily Quests. Blizzard is also removing the (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions, allowing you to cary as many as you like, and up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" will drop in Horrific Visions on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (up from 2).

      We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!
