Thanks so much for your time during our extended beta test Limit! 8.3 should be ready to launch right around the time Method wakes up tomorrow :D
That's definitely a (World) First if I've ever seen one!That means that something's up with the Heart Chamber room because there's no other reason to despawn N'Zoth unless a mechanic was unintentionally bypassed.
So they exploits a glitch which causes "force shutdown" switch and now people will play victimized? Sounds logical to me
On the one hand, it should be really obvious that you're intended to go into the Chamber.On the other, technically yes, their characters were not forcefully displaced through the gate, so there was a .000001% chance Blizz didn't intend them to go through and what they did was okay. To their credit, Limit followed the fight properly all their other pulls and were just exploring every last option, since the burn seems impossible with a 13 min enrage.
Well done blizzard. As usually you ve proven what a weak company you are for a game as successful as this. Gotta say it was fun watching this unravel live on stream.
they exploited nothing. They only tested what happens if they dont go in the portal.
So they did something that wasn't intended, that caused something that wasn't intended, and it was completely ridiculous for Blizzard to pull the cord?Did they need to do the entire region? Probably not. But it was not wrong of Blizzard to stop what wasn't supposed to happen in the first place.
Just like the NA ONLY PLANNED MAINTENANCE. Guess politics and money have hit video game snow
If you actually watched the live stream and full comms for the past couple of hours, Limit didn't go for a glitch/exploit actively in any way. They simply were testing how long they were able to delay going into the Titanic Room - and were surprised themselves when they could just burn down the boss as far as they did. After not having any other indicators of what the hell they were supposed to do (potentially other stuff was / still is broken as well), they thought it might be a dmg threshold that triggers further progress. and so they kept burning - and the boss went into a voidshield at 30ish percent, which looked kinda intended even if absolutely ridiculous. #$%^ty situation, intransparent handling and pre-testing by the developers. Hope they have some form of communication channel to the raid teams for future events like this, but I have my doubts...
Seeing what happens if you don't go through a big glowing door with 5 arrows pointing to it is not exploiting. It's testing a theory or idea, and being curious. Imagine if nothing happened if you didn't interrupt Orgozoa before he finished his cast. If there was no penalty for letting him cast his spell, you wouldn't be exploiting if you didn't interrupt it. If you knew that failing to interrupt him resulted in him killing everyone, but if every player was riding a seesaw while wearing an Ogre costume at the moment the cast finishes they wouldn't take damage, and if Orgozoa did no mechanics after that point, THEN it would be an exploit.Also, the fact that there is no reason to go into the chamber at present, and that Blizzard had to manually hit the off switch for N'Zoth in order to stop Limit's run, is a huge testament to how awful this end of expansion boss is, and how poorly designed he is.
