Well I used the 2 examples to prove a point as I already stated for myself that, I NEVER use smolder stacking because its a stupid concept to get some extra debuff. I didn't actually mean those 2 were not bugs, but lets be honest when no one EVER has mention darkfire stacks as bug, mentioning them as such, just to get "points" its.... Darkfire exists since mod 1 and a friend that plays the game from back then (the same one you mention is in your alliance) told me that, the (old) devs were asked in mod 1 preview and answered that its ok due to low chance of procing. So yes, using Common sense, one should report stacking smolder as a bug but also not use it as a method in their guides also, don't you agree? and IF ONLY 1 daily extends the duration of a debuff I think its not indented either.
I have to say tho, I didn't understand this line, cause If I'm right you are trying to say that I turned this into a war?
You turned this waste of time bug reporting into a war, half of it shouldn't be even reported, half no one care about, and half is a waste of time.
Oh and another half made more noise because someone decided that it's a bug...
We are all equal to blame here cause it takes 2 to tango. So lets do this: I will stop this here as far as I am concerned and only comment to things that have to do with the Topic, if there are any. Can you (single and plural) do the same too?
Cheers everyone and lets go back to farm, I agree with that:) Whats your @handle to send things?
1. Not you you. (English third language, and in both others that I use, there is a plural you, hmm maybe not both, I need to think about this)
2. If the devs ignored something because it has a low chance of happening, it doesn't mean it's the designed behaviours.... There are bugs that are not fixed for years, with much more impact (someone said lurker+stealth+sf).
It just means it's a bug, and lets be clear, anyone who uses it, imo should feel free to use it, it's not an exploit in any sense, we are not going to blame people playing drow for an age old insignificant bug they can't control.
Smolder stacking is not the issue of you using it or not, it's not an issue of anyone using it at all. The whole Bug World War, it about if a mechanic is intended or not, and because we have no clue what the devs think, we can only guess, and more times than not, devs didn't think either way, they just made changes and hoped for the best (not trying to insult, but that's a fact with such low manpower), so we 'common-sense-guistimate' what is a bug or not. Some think some things are, others do not.
People free to report what they want, but when this bug report is instead became bickering and reporting mechanics just to stick it to the other class, it becomes dishonest, and nothing productive comes from this.
IMO most of the things are not bugs but design considerations. Those are related but not the same.
To the point here, it should go both ways, if darkfire or whatever it was, stacks on some powers but not on others, then the fix should be to unify, either it globally stacks with some cap (like most things, plaguefire for example) or not stack on anything. The most harming to balance and design are those half working crap in general. So the bickering if it should stack or not is irrelevant, if it 'sometimes' stacks it's a bug, otherwise, it's a design choice if it should always stack, or never stack.
