This is what happens now in the Karazhan Chess event. As you finish it, you fall through the floor and end up in fun and interesting stacks of characters. And those sacrificial lambs on pawns, who probably die prior to the event finishing, no longer are able to take another chess piece…they fall through the floor, end up at Curator, and are then not present for the kill and don’t get badges of justice. Grrr…..
I am fifty badges short for my new crossbow, which is roughly two Karas and a heroic. Everyone is bragging about their new badge gear, and I am reaping the rewards of being lazy and antisocial and not farming for badges. :)
