Desert Shovel Exploit

469 posts in this topic

Posted

Greetings Adventurers,

As you probably learned recently, a bug was discovered in the game allowing players to shovel in the desert for no energy cost at all.

Granting them the possibility to only lose energy when they were getting a Crystal Shard.

This is indeed considered an exploit and a violation of our Terms of Use which is not permitted. The original way this feature was meant to work was it would require energy for every action no matter the rewards. 

We are actively pursuing our investigation, and players found utilizing this exploit or other similar instances will have action taken against their account.

woooooooooah sorry to be them

I paid to buy the game, I buy pearls (ALOT) to support the developers to improve the game and bring us new content, I abide by the TOS at all times.

As a customer I would like to know the EXACT action taking for this cheaters, this game ISNT massive population like WoW there's been the same names thrown out here and there. If I see some 2 day ban slaps on the wrist, I will quit this game immediately. 

Taking this from a friend but we all feel this way.

 

Honestly I'm on the fence right now where I'm kinda having fun still playing but feel the fun dropping off. If these people don't get permabanned or at least wipe their account of all goods/silver then it'll be the tipping point for me.

 

Honestly they really messed up by not dealing with this sooner. All the people who have done it will be banned OR they won't ban them, and people like me who are frustrated will leave.

Then leave. They gain exactly nothing by you being here. You're not giving them money, you're not driving their profits in any way. When you leave, you will not be missed.

I don't understand why everyone that posts stuff like this thinks that they actually matter. The only time it would ever make a difference is if a significant portion of the PAYING playerbase all simultaneously stopped playing the game, which isn't ever going to actually happen. You as an individual are insignificant.

They ANNOUNCED Actions, they will do nothing or 1 Week Ban.

If you think other: Live in your fantasy bubble.

They've produced actions already. Any other thought is just pure ignorance. I can provide proof of one action already which nulls your argument.

Perma bans went out for the people that no cd hacked and did the gold bar exploit. Please take the tinfoil hat off.

I really hope you guys do come through with the punishments.

I pray we don't see some sort of compensation event with increased hard/sharp rates like we had a few weeks back, as someone who spends far too much time on your game, I was definitely crushed to hear about this.

Perma bans please, this is far worse than anything the bots managed to do. People who botted 24/7 maybe had 200 of the higher blackstones.

I sincerely hope that this will not end up with 1-7 day bans as with previous expoits..... Please start taking reasonable action, this is a very progress driven game. If you dont show people that you punish exploiting harshly, then everyone will exploit next time something like this happens since the rewards far outweigh the risk.

Permaban the exploiters or you will lose players.

Finally a word from you guys... good to see that you are not trying to cover this exploit anymore removing threads on the forums denounciating all of it.... yeah you did, you know what I mean.

 

I hope the sanctions taken to the players who exploited/abused this will be PermaBan. There is no other sanction possible, those people gathered Billions of silver and gained a SERIOUS advantage over fair players grinding to gear up. If you don't perma-ban them, expect a(nother) massive drop in your player base.

 I have some friends i-g who I know exploited this... I am sorry but I don't care these guys cannot run unpunished. 

 

My 2cts,

CAW

PS: don't act too late, A LOT of these people are selling their account right now because they know the ban-hammer will strike for them. Strike first!
