    Well I want to meet your girlfriend then. You may not believe me but the test cases for each individual part of the testing process are usually containing many variables. We do a sweep (called smoke tests) tests often but also we do complex tests of one location for a whole freaking day in context of dialogues / AI / setpieces and the interaction between them. Imagine, that some projects had reported over 200,000 issues in JIRA environment. If you think that testers report like 1 issue a day and does not literally test map inch by inch - you are wrong.


    Hope you have a nice day with your supermodel mate.


    And about the PTR testing - it's just an excuse for bad QA. They have to have QA anyway - they are releasing patches for consoles and that requires a console submission process and compliance testing. But hey, compliance engineers are not functional testers ;)

    lol. As I said 'it's just a matter of time'. And this issue was not like complex one. It was rather simple to find. If they knew that they had problems with GR multipliers in the past, they should have tested them thoroughly. They did not, because they don't have a proper QA. What they do is they release PTR and hope that players will test things for them for free. And testing for free ends like this everytime.


    PS. I'm currently working as a Senior Functional Game Tester and games that I was working on were never spoiled by such a BIG exploits. It's all matter of time. With enough time testers are able to test everything.


    You jump to conclusions rather fast, don't you?

    The troll theory is pretty valid, but it did extremely lucky paired with the devs announcement about 'taking care of exploiters'.


    Even if he is trolling, the devs on both - EU and US forums are not 'trolling' with the warning post. And when they say that 'appropriate' steps will be taken then it is just a matter of time.

    WEll in this case EVERY stream of D3 should be banned cause all used this exploit, and i think they dont really care. They just creat another account and 1 week later they have same stuff.... So yea, thx blizzard for punishing people who actually prove your dev they have many things to learn


    If they found the exploit, they should report it immediately and stop using it at once. Not abuse it for few days.

    The QA is there to test everything and it's possible to test everything - it's just matter of time. Maybe they got bad QA?

    They might just have a quite bad QA lab. There is no 'exploit team' I suppose, just a bunch of testers inside QA Lab doing their job.. and they probably are doing their job badly. They just got lazy because they think PTR will do enough testing and they probably shrinked their QA. But let us be honest - good QA lab is filled with professional people that should find every single bug there is, there is no better testing. Not a PTR or any kind of 'beta release' can replace QA Lab. They just wanted to save some cash and that is how it ended. Good that they need to keep some compliance engineers for console submissions, otherwise there would be console PTRs and fuckload of bugs ;o

    He might be the one we know that get banned. Other players, like not-streamers and not a public persons could just keep the info for themselves. We don't really know how many of those were banned. Manner ban was loud because he was banned live on stream. But perhaps, the same wave of banns punished more common joes.
