With all the cheating and paid recoveries for claymore, imo everyone should have to do the quest for broadsword. That would suck for the few that earned claymore legit, but all the cheaters are still being rewarded for cheating. Also, for that matter, the midseason rules change screwed many of out of the claymore. Maybe the new matchmaking is the way it should have been, maybe not. Not arguing that at all, but I know many of us were screwed when they did it. For example, I solo grinded to 1700 prior to the change and haven't won a match since. Cool, I'm not good enough but doesn't change the fact the midseason change screwed me. Anyways, don't reward the cheaters and the people who paid for it. Make everyone do the quest before they can receive the broadsword!
