Taking advantage of something you know is a bug for personal gain is the definition of an exploit. End of story. Don't delude yourself into thinking that arguing semantics will in any way protect you from getting your account suspended, should Blizzard decide to take action.
The right thing to do would have been to report the bug and not do the Celestial Tournament again the same week, because you know that you're not supposed to be able to do it twice in a week. There's a huge step from happening to play at that particular time and stumbling across the bug, and doing the Celestial Tournament twice every week for several weeks. One is an accident. The other is an exploit. No one is going to believe that you didn't know what you were doing.

The fact that someone is willing to exploit the bug is in itself proof that there is some significant value in it. If getting the pets a little bit sooner was not desirable, people would never even consider doing it. Arguing whether or not you really gained something from it is pointless, because the mere fact that you did it clearly shows that you thought you had something to gain from doing so. If you seriously didn't think there's any value in getting the pets sooner, you would just stick to doing it once per week.
Gilneas wrote:Shrug, its just a consequence of the way the reset schedules work. Its also not something Blizzard cares about. They'd likely care if it was actually cheating -- i.e., you could get multiple pets by doing the tournament once. As it is, its fairly inconsequential; you still have to do it 10 times to get them all, and you are just doing the quest that pops up. It just doesn't fall under what they'd define as exploitative, and its incredibly minor.
I can't be up at that time, and it doesn't bother me in the slightest that some have all four now, and I will have them in 3 weeks. That's really the only reason to complain about it; if one is jealous.
Blizzard's never going to discuss it, most likely. Its probably not worth our time to discuss it much either.

I do the weekly celstial tournament every single week and i do it on tursday morning around 01:00, and the server resets on after 04-05:00, I do it exacly when the weekly quests reset but not the rest of raids etc. After the reset, i cannot do it again, as i should, from what i've read some of you guys wrote.
