It's not even close to cursed chest farming or wretched mother farming.Quote from jamesworkshop
because they wanted to, still doesn't make it a major issue anymore than cursed chest farming or the wretched mother farming outside new tristram
The current exploit is not bad design. It's literally a bug where the Torment XP modifier would be applied while you're standing in town and you would, for some reason, still get XP on kills made in the Greater Rifts. If you think this is similar to anything mentioned above then you've got to be trolling. Standing in town getting (not killing anything) MORE XP PER KILL than your buddies who are killing the monsters.... that isn't anywhere close to "normal gameplay."
As far as I'm concerned anyone who actually thinks that standing in town getting tens of billions of XP per hour while not killing anything is "valid gameplay" is exactly the problem that this community doesn't need. It shows that some people will go to any lengths to justify things as "creative use of mechanics" even though they are clearly exploiting things to gain some kind of advantage. The community, and the game, would be better without these low-lifes and parasites.
We don't need people who know they're cheating but claim up and down the street they're innocent. Throw them the fuck out just like Lance Armstrong.
