Warlocks can hellfire, run to their side, have your partner res you, you still have plenty of time to see the other team and res and get full buffs.

:-/

The advantage to this is that you can have your plan of attack before the gates even open and rush in as opposed to hanging back for the first 30-45 seconds.

It's unfortunate things like this exists, but best it gets out in the open so that it gets hotfixed quickly :(

with out telling Bliz in someway they won't know its happening because how would you the player or they blizzard even know this is happening.

In all actuality you the player could never know if its being done to you.

Given Blizzard's previous track history, the only time they fix exploits are when everyone starts using them. /whisper exploit was around for a while until everyone complained, then everyone found out about /ignore exploit and after everyone started using it and it was fixed, and then bugging out pet's in blade's edge was an issue for 2 1/2 seasons but when it was to the point that every team did it, blizz finally fixed it.

I hate to spread the word of an exploit but the ONLY way to fix it is if enough people do it.

The only reason it took so long for something this obvious to become apparent is because it was easier to just /ignore for such a long time.  Now that they're fixing the brainlessly easy things, people will find the more elaborate ways to scout.

Have you tried this?

I've been testing this in skirmishes. It seems if you die in your own starting zone, run over to their's, you get too far away from your corpse and can't see their opposing team.

Maybe it only works in Blade's Edge?

I'd imagine you need increased zoom distance for this to work.

Yea Just played a team that used this bug/drink exploit/and a new one I haven't seen before Fel Dom bug.

We know he did the res thing because he ran out with a void walker already summoned.

lol

P.S The reason for the void walker is because meele/healer teams dominate the bracket.I do the same.I always start with a void walker

Yes, have tried this and it does work. Maxdistance factor is set to as high as it will go.

On RoL for some reason however only the pets load for me. But seeing the pets buffs is enough to figure out the group makeup as far as 5's go and if there are no pets usually an indication of dbl war or 2345.
