  • “it’s not cheating or an exploit, it’s a clever use of game mechanics which Blizz tolerates and actually encourages”

    Soooooo since I’m seeing a lot of confusion (here and elsewhere), here’s some insight into how we draw the line between what makes something a punishable exploit versus a “happy little accident.” The key factor here is intent. Did the player do something with the specific intention of causing a g
