    IMO templar's & sorc's should automatically be disqualified due to sorc's being almost unkillable due to 33% extra dmg shield & templar's biting jabs being broken & not getting the dmg nerf; how can it be a fair contest if everyone in Imperial City is cheating due to rolling a templar or sorc???

    I must say.. it is interesting that everyones idea of the OP classes are different, but not one of them include DKs.

    Why don't I have 300+ skill points? Because you skipped content along the way.

    While there might be, I just don't know anything with DK's that's broken.
    They are way less OP than they use to be but I still get wins & loses against dk's so I just figured they were fine were they were at.

    The point of the PTS is to try and find those bugs and exploits before they go live! That said, if we find you've used exploits repeatedly to win without reporting them, you will be disqualified.

    This include using broken abilities that are giving too much armor or too much damage? Given how I have the broken flying dagger with 28k damage I'm refraining using it in Imperial City after seeing it's devastation last night. Other players may not be so trustworthy. And where would this line be drawn? Sorcs shields are bugged and shielding too much. Templar biting jabs have been identified as doing too much and will be fixed. So what bugs should we avoid and which are fair game?

    A big part of me says.. if ZOS knows that the Hidden Blade damage is off by a magnitude of 10, announced it on ESO Live, and did not hot fix it for this contest, they are saying "Have fun and enjoy the exploit while it lasts." Something like the people who have been using the same exploit to take scrolls behind locked gates since Beta, without consequences. One was even emp a week after I reported him for doing it.

    This is open to everyone, and actually, anyone who is collecting Tel Var Stones is automatically included. Easy as pie!

    It's also worth repeating that part of the purpose of this contest is to assist us in identifying bugs, exploits, and balance issues. And also, you know, to have fun. ;)

    So if you report them it is ok to use the exploits o:)

    With this competion's second round starting it would be nice to know if I should try again. Will we know the results of the fist round or is it already posted elsewhere?

    Ma'am, If they have used an exploit to win or gain any lead then shouldn't they be disqualified? A player even using an exploit once knowingly is already in violation to the rules even if they report it. An idea I have is if they us an exploit accidently or knowingly and gain a lead because of it then that should be subtracted from their over all amount collected to keep the contest fair for all participants .

    So, to sum up:

    1) Find exploit
    2) Report to ZOS but keep silent to everyone else
    3) Profit

    Seems exploiting is being encouraged as long as you own up to ZOS.

    /sigh

    @ZOS_GinaBruno that may not be want you meant but it's precisely what you said.

    [/quote] if we find you've used exploits repeatedly to win without reporting them, you will be disqualified.[/quote]

    some people should just never post anything anywhere ever.

    The post was true though. The wording implies that you're allowed to use exploits, you just need to report them. I don't know if this is what Gina meant, but it's what she said.

    Think of the crowns as not a reward for the best player, but for the best tester who can find and report the worst exploits.
