There was a comment on another thread about how Sarek uses his tester privileges which got me thinking, mostly cause its 3:30AM and I can't sleep.

The comment hinted that Sarek uses his tester privileges for entirely selfish reasons, so I figured lets have a look at what he is bringing to the party:

These are his 10 most recent reports.

Priest Bugs (He's a Priest dont yaknow)

http://vanillagaming.org/forum/index.php?topic=15124.msg118951#msg118951 - Shadow Word Pain Coeff

The Fuzzyhead Vendetta (Apparently he doesn't like dying to Fuzzyhead, so I'm told.

Posts that do not seem to be completely selfish.

http://vanillagaming.org/forum/index.php?topic=15125.msg118954#msg118954 - Sitting Crits



So out of 10 reports (If we can call them 10 since he seems to like to repeat himself) one was not self serving. I do not notice this issue with any of the other testers in fact I know several are happy to take requests on testing things. Essentially the PTR currently seems to be the "Sarek is sad cause bad, better find out everything that's making me sad and report that and only that server".

How is that not Completely selfish? Sitting crits is what people use for Reck. Which is what he wants fixed BECAUSE of the Fuzzyhead Vendetta. :p

and yea it's true. He does only test or mention things that for purposes of his only. But hey saying that here on Vg or coming from someone like me or you they'd just lock the post or ignore it for some reason.

Seems the issue is that you are only looking at the topics he is making and not the ones he has commented on, from what it looks like he is reporting bugs that he see in game, since he is a priest, priest bugs is what he reports, this is no different then any other user that reports bugs.  I do the same thing, I only report bugs that I come across in game that annoy me enough to get me to write a bug report. It's not the testers job to report bugs but to comment and test the already reported ones, most reports they will make is for themselves. Sarek does test other things, I've talked to him numerous times about things, then he would look into and test it. Some things that the dev team are well aware of get fixed without reports, things like these that he is reporting usually get pushed off for a while and need looking into before they get fixed, so the only way for him to get it fixed is to report it like everyone else has too.

I have no problem with Sarek testing stuff (especially not priest related ones).

Just with the way he turns the argumentation around and forces you to state him false, while it would be his job.

And with the way he fucks up bug reports especially Holy Fire and the Ironfoe one.. disgraceful to other testers.

Your list is very selective Flange. There are plenty of reports he made that have benefited the server and made it more blizzlike. For example low rank spells getting a higher coefficient while top ranks got less, affecting healers in particular. Not to mention stacking HoTs, that also got fixed after his reports. Or the hostile bugs at twin emperors.
I assume that you wouldn't have mentioned the shadow word pain report he did, if you had noticed that he is requesting that it get nerfed.

Give credit where its due, and cut this crap

Nothing negative. Just pointing out facts.

I don't have a problem with the Priest bug reports, those seem like legit attempts to improve the server, but when it comes to the pally reports, its obvious that sarek is using his 'power' out of game to try and settle something between himself and fuzzy that he is unable to solve in-game.

You can't tell me he made 3 bug reports about the same bug out of anything other than personal interest. Add that to the fact that Sarek has routinely threatened to get someone to add and buff guards in Org, for the sole reason of avoiding getting ganked by ninja and his friends and its clear that Sarek is at least attempting to abuse the 'power' he has.

Here is another example of Sarek attempting to abuse his 'power'

That whisper doesn't matter. He could be joking. It's allowed to say whatever he's saying in whispers.
