Glad I was honest, so I could see that all who were not got a pass... and what does it tell those who cheated about next time?Did any of those cheats that went in to AV and killed Van instantly (3 ret pallys leading the charge) resulting in half the raid receiving the achiev via a cheat feel punished now?These are the kind of things that honest players get ticked at... we do all we can to be honest, not rip off others, yet now an example has been set... a game breaking bug that allowed others to steal wins, points and achievs, yet those who took advantage are given a pass.Nice. Let's see how honest they are next time.

So you lost another BG. Big deal. Honest or not, this "exploitation" didn't do any long term damage. If someone got realm first on something, then sure ban them. If they went from 0 to 2.7k with this bug, then sure ban them. If they farmed Naxxramas with this bug, I don't see what the problem is. Noone was hugely affected and they get to have a little fun.You sound a lot like that hunter in LFR who wanted to report our ret for exploiting that bug. in LFR. Serious progress was made that half-raid, world breaking progress.:/

We reserve the right to take action if we do find evidence of players crossing the line to repeatedly exploit this bug for major in-game advantages.What part of that confused you?

I reported no one... but let's get right to the point... cheating is cheating, if you knowingly cheat and are not punished for it in a game then you have no reason not to do at every opportunity.You can make excuses, minimize, and QQ all you want, but those who cheated are... well, Cheats.

What part confused me?"To be clear, we have no current plans to take action against players who experienced this bug last night unless we come across any extreme cases"Do you think Blizz will consider ripping off wins in AV 'extreme', or taking unearned achievs in pvp? NO.But to those who were victims, to those who were honest, and to those who feel that cheats are being rewarded... yeah, it's extreme.
