WoW Toon Genocide Hotfixed

The World of Warcraft Website announces that Blizzard has hotfixed an exploit in their MMORPG which apparently had been used to kill off everyone in some of the game's cities, players and NPCs alike. Here's word:

Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It's safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.

As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email hacks@blizzard.com. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.

Well I bought the expansion and left after a week and a half. How anyone can construe this as one of the better one's is beyond me. I even tried a Monk, I just did not like it at all.

This expansion beats BC in my opinion. It's almost as good as vanilla, world-exploration/pvp wise.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

All of them? I've heard the opposite from quite a few people who have tried.

I was in the beta, and I defiantly enjoyed it. It's fun enough that the GF has resubbed, and my buddy that I hadn't heard from in nearly 6mo along with his wife are playing again too. So I guess we'll see.

So you were defiant in your enjoyment of Pandaria? Very awesome of you to admit it.

Anyone have a link to something explaining what was done? Just curious if this was like the disease thing from ZG or what...

Edit: Err, nevermind. Guess I didn't read the previous post thoroughly...

Its not really complicated ... as far as we know, just an exploit to mass use certain GM commands like "kill player/objekt/npc".

Heh nice...

Makes me wonder... Is this a bug that's been around and someone just decided to have fun... Or maybe it's not that complicated... Perhaps it triggers a deathchin type event, as that would just auto kill anyone in the target area...

Yes, I still call him deathchin... Leno's dragon form : )
