Hacker destroys Stormwind

Recommended Posts

Apparently this is why WoW was down for quite some time today. Look fast, I bet the video is gone soon.

[video=youtube_share;B_vCFKuXrQo]

Oct 7 2012 - one of the hackers who went across different servers with a level 1 char, flying around and insta-killing everyone. Happened over several hours, filling Stormwind with death. Initial reports of the Rapture were found to be incorrect.

For all those asking - the combat log said "You died." without any damage source. The hacker was the level 1 priest (if that isn't immediately clear) that's flying around.

Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It's safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.

As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email hacks@blizzard.com. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding. -Nethaera, Community Manager

It happened on Twisting Nether-EU, not US. And the person in the video was a level 1 priest, thats why they didn't go to Pandaria, they couldn't.
