Unintended Character Progress

General Discussion

Recently, many players brought an alleged exploit to our attention. These reports purported a method involving manipulating raid status in order to repeatedly gain reputation and other rewards from World Quests. We quickly investigated and found no truth to these claims. However, in the course of that investigation, we uncovered a different exploit that could have a similar effect.

The actual bug could cause characters to get into a state where they could complete World Quests repeatedly, receiving full rewards each time.

After fixing the bug, we felt it necessary to take action against a very small number of players who used it extensively to their advantage. One of our core values is ‘Play Nice; Play Fair’, and we take seriously the responsibility to maintain a level playing field for all players. No one wants to see a player use an obviously unintended shortcut to progress far beyond all other players.

What about the Mythic chest stuff? People received 540 loot from World Bosses and everything is all screwed up.
This is the thing you are addressing right now?

Since we got a comment on this about a week later I think thats the time frame we are looking at hahah
LOL. Are you guys really this blind?
HAHAHAHAHAHA.

The great jebait in the title... THANKS FOR THE OLD NEWS.

How about what is happening today with your shoddy game and quality control?
Are you setting up to blame players for this cache bug?
Level playing field. I guess that means a rollback on the free loot people got this morning from doing last expansion content?
LOL BLIZZARD LOL
LUL
what in god's good name is this garbage? Do you mind addressing what is going on right now?
This is such an omegalul it isn't even funny. Good ol head in the sand Blizzard as usual. At least some things never change.
Blizzard trolling us per usual.
yikes
Guess we’ll hear about the Mythic chest, bugged item levels on gear and the free PVP season rewards people got in a week.

This game has turned into a logistics joke.
Looks like this expansion might die faster than expected if nothing is addressed or resolved.

OMEGALUL old news. By all means ignore the fact people are getting free 390+ gear from previous expansion chests
390? Try 500-540.
Could you guys just page the janitor to clean up this mess? You guys obviously cant.
"After fixing the bug, we felt it necessary to take action against a very small number of players"

So basically no action was taken on the people that got really good gear for no effort. Honestly, its good to see that sometimes Blizzard errors work out in our favor. Especially when it doesn't hurt anyone else's experience.
