    It is ironic, in that the destruction of the traditional experience-points parties, has also inadvertently created this information-communication problem. SE never used to tell us anything. We could...

    Cheating is wrong, obviously, and I am glad they fixed the "loophole" that allowed cheating in this particular case.

    There is a lot of cheating and exploitation going on elsewhere.

    You say, wrongly, that BST was never very popular. It was very popular with people who played BST. I was on an All Beastmaster Linkshell in 2004~2009. Everyone on the LS played BST full-time....
