One of the most alluring aspects of online, social gaming is the ability to connect with and game alongside players around the world. When it comes to social gaming, the work that Blizzard has done with ‘World of Warcraft’ should be considered second-to-none. With that being said, sometimes the competitiveness of social gaming can go a little bit too far. According to recent news, some of the top guilds in the World of Warcraft universe actually go so far as to DDOS their opponents in order to snag their sweet raid spots.
Right now, the race is on for the top WoW guilds to make an impact by defeating the newest expansion boss, Argus the Unmaker. After more than five days of public play, the top guilds in WoW have still failed to actually down the big baddy. According to Jeathebell, an officer for the guild Limit, the guild Adois has been going to great lengths to keep their opposition from winning the race. According to Jeathebelle, a member of Adois was posting links to specific websites that would scrape IP addresses and disconnect players from the game. A little bit of research went on to show that this has actually been a common occurrence for Adois guild-members.
So far, Adois has refused to condemn the actions of their high-ranking player and it doesn’t seem like anyone is going to do anything about it. Members of Limit, however, are making sure that everyone knows about the cheating that Adois is condoning.
