The Lionheart (AU) Season of Mastery Realm has been returned to service and is available for play.

During this downtime, we tracked down every character that transferred to the realm and began the process of returning them to their origin and reversing their actions. That work is still underway, and we will continue to ensure that no items or economic impacts remain on Lionheart.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

We’ve temporarily disabled the Lionheart (AU) Season of Mastery realm while we take our next steps to address the transfer bug experienced on that realm.

We’ll provide further updates here as soon as possible.

Earlier today, on the Lionheart Season of Mastery Realm, players have noticed characters riding the Black Qiraji Battle Tank mount and wearing best in slot gear from PvP and Naxxramas.

It looks like the "exploit" to transfer a character from WoW Classic to WoW SoM was available for quite a while, which was enough time to make a huge impact in both the economy and PvP.

    Just goes to show that, given the chance, some people will go out of their way to ruin the spirit and intent of something that's supposed to be fun the way it's presented. Humanity sucks.

    It'd be better if you actually learned English, that way you could understand the context of what was said. Do you like just randomly crying about things you don't understand and then posting nonsense about it?

    Rereleasing a 17 year old game for the second time is a hard task for a small indie company like Blizzard.

    To be fair they’re busy with more important things like tracking down what pixelated art from 2005 they need to censor or turn into fruit. Oh shit this woman is showing skin on her tummy. Let’s make her a bowl of grapes.

    I have a feeling the sweaty try hard with R13 gear and Corrupted Ashbringer using all pots and flasks against fresh phase one players might just be a bit upset if both their toons got nuked.

    Blizzard stopping people from transferring overgeared characters to a fresh start server is... ruining peoples' fun?

    They should have caught this before, yes, but you'd have to be a shitstain to take advantage of that.

    If you think it was at all okay to take advantage of this, you are in fact a shitstain.

    Thank you Sniper. Quoted for emphasis. I stand by what I said. People exploiting these things suck.

    Out of curiousity, did the people who took advantage of this have to pay to transfer their character(s)? I hope so, and I hope they get some sort of suspension too.

    Its simply amazing to me how one of the biggest and formerly respected gaming companies can just constantly keep failing to such a degree,it honestly feels like a parody...like its done on purpose,but its not

    I disagree, they intentionally abused a fault in Blizzard's system to ruin the fun of others. You'd have some sort of point if it was harmless.
