He wasnt even using MD lol
Sounds like disqualifications is comming if exploiting a bug.
cheaters actually won real money today, Bad precedent set by blizzard. This allows you to abuse bugs on a global scale at this point.
Otherwise known as exploiting
They should be disqualified for exploiting. Taking advantage of a bug to gain an unfair advantage is the very definition.
Contentious opinion but: Speedrunning communities constantly encouraging the use of bugs and exploits is creating this lack of respect towards the games themselves. This is an extension of that. It's not combating with the rules that were designed, it's combating with the limitations of the format itself. And that's a shame...
If the Misdirection exploit was actually used, they should be completely disqualified. Mob snapping has been seen as "creative use of game mechanics" but Misdirection being able to last indefinitely and being abused as such goes far beyond.
this is not true plagueborers have global combat and after he would feint death the mobs would just go to the rest of the group
I mean, usings exploits for money, that seems a bit much
They didn't use MD. They used the mechanic created in Legion in order to stop a bug that would happen with people being in permanent combat. The snap was used throughout BfA without people calling that cheating. Not sure how Blizzard is going to fix this snap, but I have a feeling they are going to do it now. This was a clever use of snap mechanics, not much more then that.
Hunters in the great push? Good one! Everyone loves their DH/Mage/Boomie + venth/necro/kyr flex too much to run a hunter. Makes it impossible to get into +20s w/o pushing your own key or running w a team. I guess it doesn't even matter as they'll hot fix this in a day anyway.Edit: oh $%^&, they were actually used for once in a high key.
They said about 200 times that Plagueborer Snapping is allowed, so yeah, no one was stopping people from using that mechanic. If Blizzard were against it, they would've said so from the start, but they didn't, so stop being overdramatic.
