I hope several people do, Baron. That's the point.

In this case you're ignorant of how the group of Timmah, Rabican etc play.
I notice you conveniently left out the next two words of my sentence: "I dunno.", which indicates yes, I AM ignorant of the way some people play. You think I have all the answers? No. Again, that's the point of a post-talk on a difficult game.
But thanks for your information - Perhaps a solution includes having more people, or two players who don't have units that just hunt the map for artifacts and certain monsters, I DON'T KNOW. I'm just putting suggestions out there.

Lets apply this in a different way, say a judge is blatantly biased in a Boxing match, now the obvious thing would be to have the judge thrown out for their obvious bias, no-one would ever suggest that the boxer who the judge is biased against should have to fight harder.
Ah well, you're analogy makes a major assuption that wasn't in the bug-fix decision. It's in the term "blatantly biased".
Let's say this happened: the explosions/dragon breath problem was discovered, but instead of ChrisP saying "Argh - It's a bug", he said "Ah, I see you need a new way to approach the Black Thrall", what would you have thought? Possibly "Ah that blows - fix the bug so we can finish it in a week." Possibly "Fook - we're going to have to rethink this - Forget playing it, just watch the films, see what we missed".

Understood, but understand this, Baron. I'm also a thinker. I have no wish to cast aspersions of weakness or undermine the huge amount of concentration, stamina and dedication its taken to beat Mazz 6v2 - It really is an incredible fight and the people who've beaten it are the best of the best.
All I'm saying is that people cannot say the bug in v1 prevented it being beaten. There's no proof.
As an illustration: There's a mathematical theory called Goldbach's Conjecture, which basically says every number bigger than five is the sum of three prime numbers. (There has been development on this, but this is simple enough to understand).
However, no-one's been able to PROVE this conjecture is true. There's no mathematical proof that says this conjecture is true for all cases or false in some cases. It's 'reasonable' to assume it's true, but it's still just an assumption.
So... Just because the best of the best have found the Mazz 6 bug alarmingly difficult to circumvent, does not count as proof that it can't be circumvented.
