WoW Item Scandal

Player receives Developer item in the mail, one-shots Ulduar on the WoW Insider offers a little detective work suggesting that the surprising success one World of Warcraft guild was having knocking off Ulduar's toughest achievements is the result of one of the guild's members coming into possession of a developer item called "Martin Fury" that's not intended for player ownership, which allowed one hit kills on the game's roughest monsters. They speculate how this may have come about, but the incident seems to be over: "The whole thing is essentially wrapped up now, the accounts are banned, the item is gone, but it's certainly a memorable event." Thanks John.

Everyone is getting upset that they banned the whole guild, as one poster mentioned they can see who was in the raid. Most of the bigger guilds in game will run the instances more then once to give everyone in the guild a fair shot at getting all the cool items.

I can see that this was probably a case where most of the guild (if not all) were a part of the raid in one of those instances where the item was used.
