What exactly leads you to believe that? They currently have exactly as many heroic bosses down as anyone else. They're tied for first place.

There isn't anyone to "out-smarten". A good deal of the top guilds had people banned for this very reason. A lot of people did it. It doesn't take a genius to open your eyes and realize what's going on around you.

I still see the sponsors' logos on the header, and Paragon will have a huge fanbase so long as they're among the top players, which isn't going to change any time soon.

How can you assume that everyone who is defending Paragon
Double standards much? I even said "just about" as in people who made their voice heard back then.
You clearly implied that everyone who was defending Paragon's decision was "flaming" Stars in T11. Are you forgetting that?

I posted in blue because I like blue. Why exactly do you have a problem with that?
ByebyeSponsors wrote: Care to explain your thoughts on why Blood Legion and Vodka, arguably world top guilds, didn't pursue this strat?
Let's remember that they're not THE
top guilds. I've never seen Blood Legion, Exodus, or Refuge in the top 5. Vodka barely scratches 5 in FL. What I'm saying is that Paragon didn't use the exploit to beat Blood Legion or Vodka. I'm sure that we could both agree that neither of those guilds have a chance at clearing the heroic content before Paragon. Paragon used the exploit in hopes of gaining the upper hand, or rather, to keep up with Method and Ensidia. Paragon, Method and Ensidia have all been world first, or close at some point. I'd imagine that the lesser guilds have no reason to risk being banned for the exploit, because it wouldn't have helped them -- They all know they're not beating Method, Paragon or Ensidia any time soon.

The only reason they have a shot at world-top at the moment is because the REAL world-top guilds aren't in a position to compete.
ByebyeSponsors wrote:Or are they now "lesser" guilds in your eyes? Because according to your argument they should have done the LFR thing.
I don't look down on any guild for any decision regarding the exploit. If you avoid it because you believe in "fair play", then that's great. If you used it to ensure the possibility
of keeping up with competing guilds, then you did what you had to do to defend your place.
