Working As Intended?
Has anyone noticed an increase in the GM phrase “this is working as intended” in relation to obvious bugs? If you play a hunter, you have noticed a huge increase in the amount of mobs that ignore your feign death – it isn’t resisted, they just don’t seem to see it. This is, according to multiple GMs, working as intended. Okay…
A friend just pointed this post out from the forums. The text (for those of you unable to access it from work) reads:
So there i was, flying around netherstorm on my shiny new flying mount, when it occurred to me i had entered combat, confused i looked around, only to realise my pet was running along the ground 40 yards underneath me piling through mobs. While this wasnt a serious concern unless i stopped, it began to worry me. Then flying over a gaping chasm that was an infinite drop into the nether, i happily soared over on my griff, only to watch my piggy selflessly pile straight over the cliff into the nether to its death.
I brought this up with a GM and he stated that it was working as intended. Why would you intend this u cruel evil pet-killing gits? My pet is so stupid and defenseless that he even kills himself now! I was offered the option of dismissing the pet everytime i mount up……..but as well as that being a pain, it loses him happiness. Can’t you just make it despawn the same as when we use a flightpoint?
This seems to be a standard response to most reports of bugs or game issues lately. Has anyone else had the same experience? Although the GMs that I have spoken to have been uniformly polite (to excess), this lacks something in terms of customer service.
