I got pissed and built a fighter that managed to overcome every obstacle thrown, in or out of combat. .... The fighter was broken in the sense that he was significantly better at everything he did than anyone else in the group, and not by a small margin.
I'm not sure this actually answers the question of how you broke the game with a fighter. It mostly just re-states that you did, without really giving any new information.
For example, you say you "overcame every obstacle", but what does that mean? What sorts of obstacles? After all, there's a big difference between picking a lock and then fighting the ogre behind the door, and needing to track and chase an invisible glabrezu across the planes.
Similarly, can you elaborate on "he was significantly better at everything he did than anyone else in the group"? Which things are "everything he did"? After all, most folks agree that fighters are good at what they do; the usual complaint is that it's the only thing they can do. So what things were you excelling at as a fighter, and how would those tasks compare with the things you couldn't do at all? Also, can you give us a ballpark of how much of the gap between your and your teammates' capabilities in those areas was due to your excellence as opposed to their low optimization level? After all, there are some tables where I could grab a fighter out of the NPC Codex and be outshining the party, and it wouldn't be because of how strong the fighter class is. Knowing that you were stronger than your teammates at X task is purely relative, and therefore doesn't actually tell us anything.
Please, give us some real information. Answering "How did you break the game as a fighter?" with "By being the best at everything!" isn't really an answer at all. If I had posted that I broke the game with an Expert or Adept and you asked me how, and I replied with a story just like the one you posted, what would you think of that reply? Would it satisfy you at all? Would you even feel like it was really an answer to your question?
