That's really funny. I can't find any rule on this site prohibiting "exploiting bugs". It's not even a bug, it's an oversight on your part.
You guys screw up and than have the audacity to prohibit the use a feature that you implemented without proper research/testing/announcement? Putting the blame on the paying customer?
This keeps getting better and better. If this was my business heads would roll.
+ several others on behalf of like-minded players
In theory, this is an update that, now the 'oversight' has been fixed, is unlikely to cause any mayhem.
However, I'm sure most of the community would refer old updates to have their 'oversights' fixed before we have more features (and if we do have more features, then the map foundry still have a long queue of requests outstanding for years, and the clan community could do with a clan tab like the tournament tab).
Isn't it common sense to fix old 'oversights' before creating new ones?
Examples of features with unfixed oversights:
Freestyle 'loophole' 'fix' - this created a deliberate miss turn loophole to replace the original loophole. This can be closed by the code recognising a miss turn player as the person who played last in the previous round.
Problem with round limits being reached and incorrect winner declared ( ' deadbeater won the game on round limit ' ).
One more thing: next time we get a feature it would be cool to not have an oversight.
And, when it comes to heads rolling, the volunteers can just have a little wobble while we watch any paid heads roll all the way down a very long hill, ...
... with a cliff at the bottom.
Of course, it would be great if fixes could be released bug-free, and that may happen, in a perfect world. It would also be great if Microsoft's operating systems were too... and ALL the other programs were bug-free when they were released as well!
Unfortunately, that is not where we live. In the real world (where MOST of us live), shit can and does happen. We deal with it as best we can (what choice do we have? other than leaving) I know! instead of complaining, why not volunteer to assist?

If the winner did not deadbeat for 3 consecutive turns and still won the game on round limits, that is NOT a bug. I do believe that is the way it's supposed to work.
