    I never said it was ok to do it every now and then. Just like in RL you might do it once or twice and get away with it, but if you do it multiple times or constantly you're bound to get caught.

    Ummm, not one time in my entire real life did I consider stealing anything and think it would be OK...

    I think your analogy is backward.
    This is more like the guy going 100mph and griping to the cop that he doesnt give tickets to all the other drivers going 10mph over the limit. When is speeding ok and when is it not ok? When the cop says so.

    Stop with the stupid analogies. DBG launched knowing of the issue and didn’t care.

    They cared enough to kill the npc until they could fix it properly.

    Please skip the witch hunt, banning and suspensions. If RoS was an unfinished release than allow the devs time to work on the fit and polish that we want as players. Having them play cops and robbers will takes away those valuable man hours. Plus, some of the blame is theirs or at least has to be ownes by DBG. Call it even once the exploit is fixed and the NPC returned.

    This mechanic for lock outs has been used for years. In most missions, due to the length of the mission / HA this lockout mechanic is not an issue. But when entire mission can be completed in under 5 minutes it an be an design issue.

    DBG knew about this and chose to roll this mission out in it's current format. Then when players found a work-around it was arbitrarily labeled "an exploit"

    Based on how this issue was handled, in this case the word exploit is a euphemism for, sloppy design and blaming the customers and labeling them as exploiters to cover their a$$es.

    Except it hasn't been labeled anything yet. This entire thread is a circlejerk of people guessing at what the issue is. No one knows except the developers. If it was something more nefarious than what's been posted, the people doing it also know.

    Another stupid question ...

    Why patch the client on Jan 2, and not reboot the zone to get the NPC back up?
  10. Smokezz Augur

    Or since it's an instance, can it be hotfixed?

    Not sure what game you're playing but there haven't been any EQ client patches yet this year.

    No “arbitrary labeling” there. No, sir!

    Or were you doing this...
    ...when you penned the work-around label?

    Patch was to end Frostfell related stuff.
  15. EQ Dev Augur

    We haven't updated since 12/19/17.
    Edit: Quoting for clarity.
  16. Bahdah Augur

    So we probably won’t get her back with this patch?
  18. Zaviere Augur

    Sorry, I'll put away the can of Dev-Be-Gone :(
  19. feeltheburn Augur

    so just on the off chance that a dev does read the boards sometime this millenium, when does the almighty governing body of Norrath believe they will feel inspired enough to fix this issue.
  20. Sindaiann Augur

    Well that was informative
