There's nothing embarrassing about defeating a broken fight.

You know what's embarrassing? Having inside info for boss fights and still failing to clear it. Either that's TFB,SnV,DF,DP etc.

So we beat the broken boss, that's pretty cool imo. We realize it doesn't MEAN anything, but its still fun to brag about. (You all know you would too).
I can assure you no one in DnT would brag about killing a boss on PTS (especially Hard Mode), and no one would update the front page with it. I don't know how that would reflect on the 1000+ unique hits our website still gets a day, but I'm willing to bet most people would think it was very stupid and it would ruin that sick nasty ad revenue.

Instead of working on a boss that we know will be changed for the three reasons I mentioned in my previous post, we decided to gear out our new recruits on Live. I would have liked to have seen you folks go in for Dragonslayer instead of bragging about a broken boss that'll never exist again since PTS is down.

As far as people "hating us", that just tells me we're doing something right. I've been in DnT since WoW Beta and timmys have hated us since Day 1, oh well.

Wasn't this thread meant to be a blag thread? The title says <Death and Taxes> vs. HM Dread Fortress so I'm assuming you guys were trying to attempt a first clear of this op on the PTS for blagging rights otherwise why would this thread exist at all?

What did your mom tell you about assuming? That's not the reason. I'm sure Rhom just wanted viewers, and new content gets viewers.

The popcorn is bugged so if you actually eat any I'm going to have to try and publicly shame you.

Thats just how it works.

I am sure Rhom did it for viewers because that's what he said, himself, on the VOD and in-game. No assuming on my part.

Aside from what you mentioned it also serves as a preview of upcoming content for people who aren't really keen on doing PTS stuff (anymore), those who have other priorities, or those who don't have time to log in and download the PTS. Previews/teasers hype things up which is always good.
