The Banstick

Someone showed up Blizzard, we can’t have that. Showed Blizzard their flaws…shame on them. Ensidia beat the Lich King. Blizzard said they used an exploit, and banned them. Larisa goes into it more then I care too.

I just want to touch on this subject. Is it fair to Ensidia. No. It’s Blizzard being the 800lb Gorrilla they are, and trying to make an example of them. It smacks of the 4-man Leviathian Incident.

If the game allows me to do it, and I figure out how to do it. Why should I be punished? Say we were in the NFL, and I figured out if I tossed to the reciever on the left, because on the left you have a bad safety covering there. That’s like the Ref’s blowing a foul, because I know the player was weak…isn’t that ridiculous.

Whether you feel it’s cheating or not, whether Ensidia used an exploit or not, whether they knew or not is regardless. If the game code allowed them to do it, then I see no fault. I feel Blizz is in the wrong.

Though in the scope of thing 3 day ban, been there done that, it ain’t so bad. 😉
