"Exploiting a bug is not cheating"
I dont remember how many times I heard that in multiplayer games, especially from the bunnyhop crowd. But I would be rich if I always got a penny for it.
Coaches of esport teams being that stupid.. Now thats something new.
I hear you, and yet real sports have this issue as well, if we consider real-life 'bugs' as holes in the rules book or vague regulations. Off the top of my head, 'hack a Shaq' was a strategy deployed by a lot of teams to slow down a prolific shooter. NBA had to change the rules around fouls to try and prevent that stratdgy from being effective. In F1, its really an engineering race to discover new car performance by exploiting the regulations in car design, for example, blowing the cars exhaust over aerodynamic elements to increase traction, even when off throttle. Eventually all the teams do it until the regulatuons are changed. Both examples are unintended consequences to how the game/competition is supposed to be played.
Thats still a lot different to "your enemy is right around that corner behind a box! Go now, hes not looking in your direction!".
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
