So my previous statement was made on mobile and was a little rushed; what I was trying to convey is that this isn't a game breaking bug in that this isn't a true PVP game so if one player gets an advantage, it's just that the game becomes easier for them, but it doesn't directly affect anyone else. So while it does suck that some people are taking the easy road and getting loot far easier than those of us not using the exploit, it hardly breaks the game; it's just frustrating to see cheaters prosper (if, indeed they are cheating...which is up for debate).
So I understand the frustration, but I still feel this is being blown way out of proportion when players are expecting an immediate resolution to an issue that has been ongoing for quite some time. Obviously, the devs haven't felt it is a top priority issue and based on what I'm seeing, I have to agree. To me, the server migrations, the Guild Wars launch and addressing other concerns (like getting the Consoles caught up to PC/Mobile) are all much higher priority.
Does that mean the devs should continue staying silent on this issue, imho, no, but then again, that is my one bone of contention with the devs over the years (the fact that in some ways they share so much and in others they share next to nothing). However, I also don't think that means the devs should drop everything they're doing to respond to this issue while Sirrian is on vacation because most likely, this is an issue that requires, if not Sirrian's direct response than at the very least his input; so the other devs aren't going to comment if Sirrian hasn't directed them how to comment (and, really, Sirrian is almost always the one to respond to these types of issues). So please, let's not blow this out of proportion just because most of us dislike it when we see (what appear to be) cheaters prospering.
