Immediately made me think of Strong Bad and Trogdor. Good times...

Minidragon on Bismarck got perma'd.

He had 5 relics, 3 full salvage sets, and a crap load of other stuff.

SE just crapped on A LOT of people.

Glad I quit this game a long time ago and got my life back :)

I was a lvl 75 PLD/WAR. Once you start doing the end game stuff it is a whole lot of DRAAMAA. Tanking Byakko and doing Zilart mission 1 - 13 were probably the highlights of my career.

About time.

Thought about posting it on 22 but decided Nope.

I heard some of the petfoodalpha contributors where ban as well on Odin.

Good job SE, now the endgame of FF its a bit more clean. That's what you get for cheating. They thought they got away, and then BAM, the banhammer

Maybe but SE knew about this for how long and never bother to fix it so they ban the players for using it instead sounds like complete BS to me

mfwahwah3376d ago

You're saying it's bull**** that SE allowed cheaters to play for like a year longer before being banned?

I think that's very generous....

You let them do it for a year so you can clearly see who is taking advantage of the system. They probably let you get away with it once or twice but ban the ones that really abused it..As they should have. I've played just about every major PC MMO. Got to high levels and decent gear in all of them, never once cheated.Had the chance to on many occasions, it just takes away the sense of accomplishment for me.
