World First in Doubt

Doubt is clouding Ensidia’s world first achievement for defeating The Lich King. Yesterday the influential guild posted on its website:

Ensidia did indeed receive a 72 hour suspension for 1 rogue using his everyday normal DPS rotation.

We would like to apologize for some members outburst but we hope that people understand that everyone is quite disappointed and distraught with the whole situation.

Date of Violation: 03/02/2010
Type of violation: Exploitation – Abuse of in-game mechanics or glitches with intent to exploit or cheat in World of Warcraft.
Details: Use of Saronite Bombs to bypass The Lich King fight mechanics
Consequences for Account: Account suspended for 72 hours, all items and achievements gained removed

One cheeky person commented of Ensidia’s world first forfeiture

Agreed. An exploit is an exploit is an exploit.

However, I would like to point out that every one should have KNOWN this would happen, though. We were all told about this waaaaay back in Warcraft 2 when you select the dwarves:

“Bombs are GREAT!”

[EU] Lightning Blade’s Paragon is currently no 1, according to GuildOx. And the only guild with The Frozen Throne (25 Player) achievement. Congrats to the Paragon team!


*** Ed. US guilds vodka and Blood Legion now ranks top 2 and 3, respectively, according to the GuildOx website. It wouldn’t be long before new guilds follow suit. Tick Tock King, your times up. 🙂
