Hopefully nothing because the hard / sharp prices have skyrocketed since they stopped shoveling.  IDGAF, bring back the sploiters as long as they helped keep prices normal because this shit is ridiculous!  We'll be back to 7.5M for sharps soon. :|  Its bad enough since the blackstone event ended.

What did the exploit actually do? How did people abuse it?

I'm guessing they got tons of hard/sharp shards? First i am hearing of it. 

No chance they will ban exploiters, They did not ban those who perma stunned the bosses in the early days or the ones who made billions with the botting software? Only the obvious people got caught during that phase. Also, intelligent exploiters will just exploit a little, in this case like 20 shards, stuff that still looks legit.

From what I understand the issue was that using shovels did not use energy.

 

I'm annoyed that three days passed with people getting Gathering EXP without any energy expenditure. Rollbacks on exploits are possible, but not when the company operates with next to no metrics or logs (as has been made obvious with how previous bugs and exploits have been handled).

 

Once again chips away at the idea of fairness in the game.

 

Edit: I remember someone stated the rule of BDO a while back: Exploit early and exploit often and say nothing.

Nothing will be done to the people who used this exploit as Daum/PA/Kakao will sweep this under the rug to save what little income they still have coming in.

Yes they did. I would say all of the people using the old botting software have been banned. Hell they sued the companies making the programs.

If you explain what the exploit was then they have to hide the thread.

why some people mentioned one have to macro water/tea while auto shoveling? I thought the small area near sand grain bazzar wont gives you desert debuff while you can still shoveling.
