Not to be rude Dizzeeyo and it's okay for everyone to have their opinion, but I feel like you're completely irrelevant and noone really cares what you think. You just popup on every thread with something completely useless to say because you're incredibly worthless in every single way, not a single word that disperses from your lips has any value or meaning so I really feel like you should just take a step back and be more of a spectator than a contributor on the beautiful arena junkies forum.
Anyways, what Joe said is nearly completely right. Starting some IRL war over this is so fucking weird and standard of the WoW community lol, but it's so obvious that 99% of you would have ALL done the same thing if you had thought of it / think it could've worked. Who wouldn't? With this amount of money on the line and you see something you can use in your favour to get a second chance at a huge prize pool, why the fuck would you not go for it, you'd just stay at home and not play just to say 'at least we were honourable'? There's only ever 1 meaningful tournament a year for WoW and who knows where you'll be in a year's time, you obviously cease the opportunity and do whatever it takes right? Especially if it's as easy as making a single post to ESL and getting a second chance passively lol.
A bunch of us were super pissed at Sadstory for abusing MC bug last year (seems quickly forgotten) and I was really disgusted by it, but in reality if I was in the same position, I'd also do it with that amount of cash on the line. Stop acting like you're all angels and wouldn't do the same thing =)
PS: doesn't mean you can't be mad, it's like Joe says, direct it in ESL's direction since they're the ones who made it so easy to do.
