    Yogg +0 World First Kill - Exodus Suspended 72H

    Yogg +0 World First Kill - Exodus Suspended 72H
    A lot of people suspected there was something wrong with the kill of Yogg+0 by Exodus a few days ago. They were right and Exodus has been banned for exploiting a bug in this fight. Obviously, their kill has been removed from the Hall of Fame.

    Offense: Abuse of Game Mechanics
    Details: Circumvention of normal combat mechanics to defeat the Yogg-Saron encounter inside the Ulduar raid instance.

    In our many attempts at trying to figure out a way to defeat Yogg zero watcher, we found a way to use bugged game mechanics to make phase 3 easier in zero watcher then one watcher.

    The bug is when someone is left inside the brain room of Yogg-Saron, they can still get aggro on the adds that spawn in phase 3. That means if you have someone getting healing aggro in the brain room, they will get aggro on the adds, which cause them to evade in place and allows for all of your raids dps to be focused on Yogg.

    We discovered this mechanic on a wipe, and decided to see if we could actually get it to work. The first attempt after that wipe, we realized it worked, and went with it and killed it on that attempt.

    This bug has been hotfixed on all servers.

    We're also in the process of deploying a hotfix for an issue with Immortal Guardians that could cause them to pause their movement before reaching melee range. This fix will also prevent the Immortal Guardian from running away if their target is stunned.

    way to make the US look bad.

    edit: had they admitted it straight away I would have more sympathy.

    So Blizzard didn't really do anything with the hotfix, except delaying the whole thing until they release another hotfix that will finally make encounter beatable the legit way.

    Really sad, I hoped they had done it legally, but the math was just against it and here's the confirmation.

    The ban was pretty light, should have been longer.
    I don't hate you. I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence.

    This is all beginning to sound like what happend to Overrated when they hacked AQ40 and got banned for it. Except for the part of Exodus getting a 72 hour suspension versus Overrated's permanent bans. But did Overrated get suspected of their misdeeds in the same manner of Exodus?

    It's still nice to see Blizz take action for this. Now if they only knew about the Disgusting Oozeling exploit before that became obsolete in 3.0...

    LOL HAHA I was proven wrong and it feels great, this is awesome. Kind of sad that they got banned, but the title just put a huge smile on my face.

    To the "Way to make the US look bad" From a video game? Ha, US cant look any worse, imo.

    Good game blizzard, good game indeed.

    Q: Do they lose the achievement/title/mount?

    Can't really rely on Armory unless blizz manually updates it, on account of them being unable to log in/out from ban.. correct?

    Title is misleading.

    They were suspended for 72 hours.

    Most people equate banned = permanent suspension.
