    Actually, i'm gonna guess that they programmed in some sort of scripting protection for the items they were expecting to work, that didn't quite.

    Essentially, this event is a real-shard test of the new IDOC anti-script-loot code in a more controlled environment. I'm willing to bet that some of the fights have devs watching (with some GMs for assistance, taking scripter names), trying to see what is causing their new code to not work properly, or how the scripters are getting around it. I'd not want to be associated with any of the scripters at the end of this, as there may be another round of bans based on the event observers standing unseen at the scenes of the crime.

    Im by no means an expert in this field but one thing i have noticed at good idocs and from a while back in doom gauntlet is that sometimes you see items flying around as if its picking stuff up and dumping it in a pack just before the drop and subsequent lightning fast looting. is that a script running?
    if you visit luna now you can see what i mean
