MMO-Champion - Season 11 Begins, LFR Fall of Deathwing, LFR Exploit Bans, The Daily Blink
Diablo 3 - Meteor Runestone Effects

Update: Blizzard posted an official statement on the LFR exploit bans.

PvP Season 11 Begins
This season brings new gear and Alizabal, the new Baradin Hold boss. Keep in mind that all ratings will be reset and higher item level honor gear will be added. Any honor that you have over the 4,000 cap will be converted to gold.

Her transfer to Baradin Hold prior to the Cataclysm has only aggravated the ruined prison's increasingly dire conditions.

Skewer
Alizabal skewers and stuns her current target for 8 sec. Skewer also inflicts 10000 Physical damage every 2 sec. and increases the target's damage taken by 150%.

Seething Hate
Alizabal incites Seething Hate in a random player, inflicting 600000 total Fire damage to all players within 6 yards of the target. The damage is split amongst all of the nearby players.

Blade Dance
Alizabal enters a Blade Dance and inflicts 12500 Physical damage every sec. to every player within 13 yards. The Blade Dance also deflects all incoming attacks.

    Oh wow those bans will hurt those guilds. I can't help but feel for them, really.

    That's ridiculous. Take away the loot and worry about fixing your shit next time before releasing it Blizzard. "Hey guys lets ban 100s or possibly 1000s of players while we're already losing subscriptions like crazy!" "LOL lets do it!" And no I wasn't banned, I just think it's stupid.

    Glad Blizzard decided to do something about the exploits.Sad that the new BH boss sounds like another simple pushover. Tank swap for debuff, stack for a debuff, don't stand in melee for a whirlwind.

    I'm not exactly a dedicated raider so I'm excited for Deathwing LFR! Plus I haven't seen the ending cutscene yet coz i wanna earn it, and now the wait is over!

    I wonder if the daily blink is hilarious?

    Bans aren't official yet. I want to see an official announcement first

    The LFR tool is dumb and misleading. They advertised it as being a raid you can do multiple times in a week with no lockout. I don't ever remember reading that if you participate in a boss, you are locked regardless of whether or not you roll. It's also pretty ridiculous that if you roll on the Chaos orb at the end, you get locked. All around, there is absolutely no benefit to doing raid finder more than once a week.

    While it kind of annoys me that Blizz punishes people for doing what they'd catch if they were doing their jobs and not rushing glitchy patches, I understand and I'm glad that these guilds aren't an exception to the rules. The will definitely hurt them, and maybe teach them a lesson. They were fools for openly acknowledging what they did, as well.
