I always got the tags, did it with all 21 of my toons and got it, and the ones where my toon did not win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, I thought I did not get it since it did not pop up, but i checked my inventory and they were there.

Be funny if instead of a disqualifcation for cheating, you also get frozen til the end of the race.

I came in third 'Legally' but there was no flag...

I assume that somebody else got it by cheating?

i did get the two tags though.

There is a legitimate cliff you jump, the one they are referring to is the one at the bend of the race track, the curve. People just run straight through the first portion jumping unto the track way below, thus bypassing the bend, and the real cliff jump.

It is a nasty cheat and people are exploiting it to the teeth.

I don't know that it's a cheat anymore than the shortcuts in Mario Cart are cheating.

Is it intentional? No, apparently not. But this isn't exactly uber-exploit territory. Somebody forgot to place the invisible walls.

It just so happens, though, that the invisible walls for races aren't exactly well defined in the first place; look at all the corners you can cut in the NPC race. It'd be hard to win if they weren't, after all.

Cut the people who jump the cliff more than a bit of slack, for two reasons:

1. It's both possible and not terribly difficult to go over it accidentally;
2. It's entirely in the spirit of the way the races are designed;
3. It's also entirely in the spirit of the way race games in general are designed.

Fix it if it's not working as intended, but calling it a cheat or exploit is spilling far too many words on something which isn't a big deal at all.

+1

timer = fail

SOLO VERSION

The times for this and snowball fight are way too far apart.

Don't fix it!!! It's so much fun jumping off that cliff. Plus, everyone is doing it. Nice PvP for the event.

I had three opportunities to run the race by myself last night...

Fortunately, I wasn't a complete looser and won all three.

I did use the cheat on the last one though.



There were so many Instances open, that finding one with less than 5 people that weren't at all interested in doing the race was quite easy.
