A group of mages learned a way to solo a raid instance using the tools given to them, they were suspended.

    They didnt do it for BW I dont think, but their recent changes and what is at stake for SC2 might make them suspend people doing this on the ladder, particularly because it can be abused and is game changing. This isnt floating a drone here.

    Your source for sound, logical and reasonable responses.

    Seriously, why do you people think that bug abusing is ok? As far as I know, you can get ban for bug abusing, it certainly isn't ok since it shouldn't be part of the game. Especially some so game breaking bugs like Skywalk Colossus, or in SC BW, Disabling Interceptors with Plague, Disabling Turrets with Observers, Floating Drone etc etc.

    WTF? They should suspend programmers for it, not players.
    I wouldn't exploit a bug, and it would be quite bad if my adversary did it, but IMO if it can be done just by playing the game, they should STFU and fix it ASAP, instead of suspending players for their own mistakes.

    Eh, that might be an exception. WoW has paying customers, and they may have already warned players against using the exploit.

    Quite frankly they have no right banning players for abusing a bug they left in the game. It would show lack of integrity to do so. And they've never done this with exploits in any other game.

    Again...I'm not defending the use of exploits. Just saying they can't fault players for abusing their own mistakes.

    ok... enough talk over game ethics this thread is more related to the Skywalk Strat. So anyone seeing this used anywhere else? =)
    I know in Metaopolis the Colies will spawn in the city and the bottom of the abyss but because they're are so tall you can see them just a little bit =)

    I got this bug to work in a game vs. coms. I would not use it against a live player. Such things do not constitute fair play, imho. I'm not seeing it used, btw.
