    if a 5hours long fraps and plenty of screenshots isnt enough proff then nothing is rly. everyone will know he got world first, so at the end of the day getting the achievement first doesnt mean anything..

    I do believe they do. They just don't "Level" with you after 80, but still provide EXP bonus. Someone asked a similar question weeks before Cataclsym was released. No one had any concrete answer, but it was said by many that this was the case.

    Not what I meant, but sure, I'll go with it. Difficult to explain, but I'm not knocking Athene. I don't agree or disagree that he was server first. All I said is that he won't have a trophy to show off his victory. Just tales of it.

    Nah, that isn't it. I know that there was a bug in beta where the exp boost worked up until level 81, but they fixed it a month ago.

    I'm not sure really why he used them. Maybe his gear just sucked in those 2 slots?

    Possibly, but that may be what I'm referring to. The bug in which you mention. Since this took place during Beta, it's quite possible.

    You think Athene didn't enjoy what he did? That he isn't enjoying himself right now?

    You're deluding yourself if you think that the vast majority of people in WoW aren't doing whatever it is they're doing because they have FUN doing it.

    All that matters is that he is happy. If he's happy with the outcome, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

    So how long until Blizzard finds the exploit he used and bans him again?

    He was mob tagging outdoors. The same method that was used by the player who got the level 80 world first. It wasn't bannable then, and shouldn't be now.

    You do realise release dates are closer to eachother now than before? EU has always had to deal with it before, when US got the releases earlier.

    they wont ban him, its legimate what he did. last time when he got banned they exploited a bug really. the mob tagging method he did this time is a hundered percent legimate, everyone can do it, its really easy.. wondering why noone else did it really

  15. #415
    hmm.. "Smart use of game mechanics"... really? You honestly believe that huh? Its manipulating the game mechanic that was designed to prevent kill stealing.
    ... So, whats to gain for the people that spent the last 6 hours doing nothing but killing mobs for one person? 20K gold that can be brought over in a transfer? or was something else exchanged?

    Eh, whatever, You want Kill stealing, why not head over to AION, you can go play with Serenity.. I'm sure he is still there.

    Mostly because it requires an agreement to be made with the person and a group of people. Deciding who gets the world first, and then convincing people to do it for you. In truth, Athene's guild did all the work. Athene just filmed it and took the credit. As far as I'm concerned, it was a joint effort, but that's just one fox's opinion..

    Meh, Im going to take my time and enjoy all the new zones instead of rushing to lvl 85

    I think people just want to hate to hate. All this talk about legitimate or illegitimate when the method he got banned for last time was approved by GMs when he asked if it was legal, and the method he is (believed to be) using now has been used legally in the past. I am no fan boy, to be honest I never really pay attention to world firsts because they don't concern me, but my research done since this topic started, and time spent waiting for US cata, I see no reason to hate on the guy.

    excactly, smart use of game mechanics.. it worked out rly well didnt it, he got world first way before any other guy.. so it seems pretty clever to me.

    and as for the the other guys that helped him out, well it was fun really, we were a part of it and he couldn't have done it without us so i found it fun really, just beeing a part of the whole thing. it's kind of a big achievement to reach world first in a game played by 12million people if u ask me
