    There is a area in Azure zone, mobs drop torghast-like orbs there and it gives you various powers, like movement speed, stats and so on. This power increased a chance for the mobs to drop the power-orbs way past the intended drop rate and devs had to nerf it. I believe that power was called "fun detected" which is what funny about the nerf. It could have been an intended pun by the devs - in any case, it's a good one.

    They nerfed something called "Fun Detected," which sounds like they're nerfing fun.

    Word.

    At least it's somewhat self-aware now.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.
