A high-level World of Warcraft player has been kicked from his guild after it was revealed that he was DDOSing team-mates in an effort to get himself a spot in raids. Adois was the fifth key healer in Limit, the top raiding guild inside the US.
Limit spent the weekend racing to defeat the Antorus, the Burning Throne raid.
An officer of the guild, Jeathebelle, who’s also one more of Limit’s healers tweeted earlier nowadays to say “we have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Limit’s 5th principal healer, Adois, utilised spoof hyperlinks sent to his co-healers to scrape our IP addresses and then DDOS a healer, forcing him offline to get a raid spot for himself.”
Adois apparently spent some of the time ahead from the raid “begging a healer to click” a shortened URL. That link redirected to an IP scraper, and it was later revealed that Adois had posted the healer’s IP address into a diverse Discord server. The only healer who had clicked the link disconnected from both World of Warcraft and Limit’s servers on Mumble and Discord. Meanwhile, Adois had arrived to fill in for the missing player.
This apparently wasn’t the first time a thing like this had occurred for the guild. When Adois was benched ahead of a raid against Mistress Sassz’ine, the substitute healer immediately started disconnecting, forcing Limit to bring in Adois. Not lengthy following the raid ended, the new healer was in a position to reconnect.
Jeathebelle also claims that “Adois was by far the worst player in Limit,” and later confirmed that Adois was no longer a a part of the guild. Their Twitter feed is worth a read to get a rapid laugh at the absurdity of it all.
