I wonder if they would put in a rule against this or if it is a fair strategy.

You don't know what Coratanni bug is, do you?

^^ This x100. Who had the brilliant idea of placing adds with millions of HP inside ToS? Those alone take minutes to kill, a stealth team can easily shave 10-15 minutes off of the whole raid; you can never close such a gap with a regular group.

And can we please get a word on the full rules and regulations soon? In Any% speedruns, by default any means to finish the level are allowed, including exploits and glitches, and I don't think they'd want to encourage that.

I've read about a few groups complaining on the forums about it but I've killed her many times without encountering any problems week after week.

Please explain your magic solution to completing Coratanni when she decides to attack her own escape pod.

Or maybe your tank can hold still when the cross is gonna happen....

I mean I don't see how anybody would beat these teams especially when they have multiple alts all geared up to have multiple attempts...

Just too bad most of us won't ever get near these "serious rewards" but it's probably a good way to advertise the game a bit more.
I'm going to guess that you grew up playing team sports where they didn't keep score and everybody got a trophy just for playing.

Competitive events are meant to be just that... competitive.
Not everything is meant to be for everybody.

On the other hand, you've got just as much opportunity to win it as anybody else... if you're good enough.
If you're not, you'll lose.

Fortunately, there's also a category for people who either don't want to compete or aren't good enough to compete.
They're called spectators.
They don't get rewards.

Couldn't you deal with that with a couple of Scoundrel/Ops with Smuggle?

Its already been said but worth a bump. If you don't fix Coratanni and Underlurker this is just gonna show everyone on Twitch how buggy the game is. Not exactly good marketing. Even if you fix them people in ops chat will probably be saying things like: 'these are the tactics to not bug it', 'no they fixed that', 'holy **** Bioware actually fixed a bug?' 'well.. they say they did but you know what they are like they probably made it worse like usual'
Yeh that will bring people into the game.

Great idea Bioware. Speed Run for....content that is bugged and some broken.

Enjoy that door to Coratanni not being there and everyone having to leave and reset your speed run. Enjoy.

Enjoy that Coratanni bugging out and ruining your speed run because she resets. Enjoy!!

Enjoy that Underlurker bugging out in that speed run. ENJOY!!!

GREAT IDEA BIOWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
