No matter what Ensidia tries to do to tarnish the achievement of Exodus, Exodus has the World First, and everyone knows it. And as a programmer, I’ll have to lay this one at Blizzard’s feet. If after 5 years of scripting raids they don’t trap an Evade as a matter of a routine error check, then they ‘win’ one Epic Fail award.Unfortunately, Blizzard is coming across as unfairly treating the two situations - as I recall Blizz openly said that Ensidia’s earlier exploit was not the intended design any more than Exodus’s exploit was the intended design. So where was the suspension for Ensidia? Is beating a fight with an exploit and then reporting it, better than beating a fight with an exploit and not reporting it? And let’s face it - Ensidia’s exploit gave them an unfair advantage in the race to later world-firsts - putting any later claims to first in question (and a 72-hour suspension would have put them out of the race).In 3.1, Blizzard endgame raiding races appear to be about as reputable as doping-tarnished cycling or drug-enhanced baseball records of the last decade.
