People are still ACTIVELY getting 100 views on their couriers (Wyrm and Grill)

  • People are still ACTIVELY getting 100 views on their couriers (Wyrm and Grill)

    Yo, here's a list I've compiled of people actively abusing a viewcount bug to gain views on their couriers. They get the courier to 100 and then sell it for a courier at 0 plus two keys (as a fee to get it to 100). I know you guys patched it to fix the bug already, but this is another bug, which they're abusing as we speak... Here's a few names I picked up from dota2lounge.com in 5-10 minutes. I'm sure there are thousands of more... Kind of defeats the purpose of having a special effect courier that rises with viewcounts if everybody is able to obtain the max level within an hour :x

    Removed the list ~Hefaistus

    Thanks!

      Who on earth really cares. How does this affect your game or viewing pleasure? Your own courier still won't be worth anything once it gets to 100 views.

          Looking through your past posts, you're negative and bashful in almost 90% of your comments. If you hate this game, why are you still around here bugging everybody about it?
          But, i'll humour you - as a big D2 Trader, I purchased a TPL ticket + 5 couriers in the hopes of watching the games (as I love some of the teams playing) and leveling all five couriers at the same time. Unfortunately, due to another bug frolicking around again (I know they've fixed it once before), everybody is sitting with these couriers at 100 already, when in reality it should take 2-3 months to get it up that high, which defeats the purpose of paying 8.99 USD for a ticket that comes with a "level up" courier (at least, in my opinion it does, as I was led to believe it would take several months to level it up to 100).

          If they don't fix it, no harm no foul, everybody gets a really nice looking courier with full effects for a relatively cheap price. If they do fix it, they make a lot of users happy and the courier becomes a little more exclusive at its highest level. Just because it doesn't apply to you doesn't mean it doesn't apply to the rest of the community :<

            I paid 8.99 for a ticket. I got a courier as a bonus. The purpose of buying the ticket was to watch the tournament the ticket was for, not to level couriers.

              People playing "trade" instead of playing dota these days.
              But if its a bug fix it nonetheless

                YOU paid 8.99 for a ticket, and got a courier as a bonus. Other individuals, myself included, purchased extra tickets for the purpose of leveling couriers. I do enjoy watching the games, but I also enjoy making a profit from my hobby.

                There are some people who would really like to have a fully leveled courier, but have no interest or time in watching tournament games. Those are the people to whom I would like to sell, thus making MY experience with the various tournaments not only FUN but also PROFITABLE.

                Don't knock the value of something because you don't understand the dynamics of the value of someone's time and effort.

                  How about we don't start throwing around some names around here, k? If Valve deems it to be cheating, they can easily take action against it - they have done so before.
                  If there is still a bug around, report it. Don't shame name people. Removed the list.

                    I dont see the problem in people abusing this bug as it doesnt really benefit game play... its just cosmetic who the fk cares..
