A high-level World of Warcraft player has been kicked from his guild after it was revealed that he was DDOSing team-mates in order to get himself a spot in raids. Adois was the fifth main healer in Limit, the top raiding guild in the US.
Limit spent the weekend racing to defeat the Antorus, the Burning Throne raid.
An officer of the guild, Jeathebelle, who is also another of Limit’s healers tweeted earlier today to say “we have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Limit’s 5th main healer, Adois, used spoof links sent to his co-healers to scrape our IP addresses and then DDOS a healer, forcing him offline to get a raid spot for himself.”

Adois apparently spent some of the time ahead of the raid “begging a healer to click” a shortened URL. That link redirected to an IP scraper, and it was later revealed that Adois had posted the healer’s IP address into a different Discord server. The only healer who had clicked the link disconnected from both World of Warcraft and Limit’s servers on Mumble and Discord. Meanwhile, Adois had arrived to fill in for the missing player.
This apparently wasn’t the first time something like this had happened to the guild. When Adois was benched ahead of a raid against Mistress Sassz’ine, the substitute healer immediately began disconnecting, forcing Limit to bring in Adois. Not long after the raid ended, the new healer was able to reconnect.
Jeathebelle also claims that “Adois was by far the worst player in Limit,” and later confirmed that Adois was no longer a part of the guild. Their Twitter feed is worth a read for a quick laugh at the absurdity of it all.
