Were those you mentioned deactivated and reported as UNINTENDED like this one?
Not an exploit like Elder farming.
Sorry dude, you're just making excuses to justify exploiting.
You're hanging on that post so hard to justify this dumb point.
Sega intended Elder Normal to be run. If they didn't intend it, then they wouldn't have put the triggers on the Rising Badges exchange. What was unintended was the amount of meseta you could get for stomping him. That's not an exploit of a mechanic, unless the mechanic we're exploiting is "kill boss, drop loot, wow loot is decent, go kill boss again."
That's a balance issue. One they are currently addressing so it doesn't mess up the market. It's not a hack or exploit that makes anyone who did it worth banning.
That's a sweet way of justifying exploiting something unintended.
It's not you or me deciding what is intended and what is not. It's Sega.
And Sega said UNINTENDED. and they turned it off.
Do you know better than the game's owner?
