Well don't expect me to be a beliver then. You just said "We did it" and all we can do  is trust your words. Not really a good standing for a company that already  mislead it's customers a few times...

Trust your government! We do not spy on you, we do not listen to your phone calls and we do not track your location when needed.  Trust our words or face the consequences...

who freakin cares, infact this actually makes the game WORSE for most of us who didn't care one bit about being competitive b/c they didn't bother to increase the terrible drop rates and now we'll have to pay even more for these things just trying to get our TRI armors.  The "way" to "fix" this was put all the PEN & TET Gambling Try Hards on a different schedule from the rest of us Plebs and have their enchantment gate be some item that only comes from PVP (or Artisan/Master Imperial)

Hey @CM_Aethon  , @GM_Dew

There are a bunch of people in reddit/discord/even here bragging about how they never sold their hards/sharps that they got from cheating so they didn't get banned but they said the members in their guild that did sell them got banned. They're saying that they were holding onto them until prices went back up so this seems like they circumvented whatever criteria you guys did the bans on.

I hope  this isn't the case.

It's probably people spreading lies, since that's what most people do on the internet.

I learned people were doing this on an alt accounts, which means no big names will be banned. It was done on alt accounts then they transferred the wealth to main accounts :( . 

Next step... Ban all accounts tied to mac/ip address. win win?

enchant some shitty gear items up to tri/duo items that no one will buy then purchase it on the exploit account. You dont get 100%, but you then transfer what 85% if you use the value pack.

We need to know because the competitive guilds have to remove the players from their roster. Also if members in leadership position were ban we also have to start preparing for the future of the guild were in. It is important to list the names of the players. 

Agreed.

If they cant post the familynames/characternames/handles etc then it would be nice to post the numbers or let the guilds who were affected know i.e   2 members from suchandsuch guild, 5 from this guild etc, so guildmasters or members of guild (if was the guildmaster) could prepare for future going forward.

A suggestion. Can we see the list of people that got banned? I mean..I'm not sadistic or anything but I was hoping to see my daily pker in that list and giggle away while sipping a cup of tea.

While we know you guys would love to see a wall of shame or exact numbers, this is unfortunately not something we'll post or discuss.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
GM Dew

understanding?? , i dont believe anyone got banned , dont see any chatter of people missing from guilds , no one is flaming on the forums about being banned , There is Absolutely No changes to the wealthiest players , and hey if people were exploiting this digging thing ,one would surmise some of the wealthy to be dropped from the leader boards. this hasnt happened

Zero transparency , misdirection .

It should be perfectly legal in the states though. It isn't defamation of character since the statements are not false. If doing a name and shame on people that were banned is illegal, then our newspapers break the law daily for listing people who have broken the law.

Good job banning them, This was something a lot of people did not expect to happen and i can say everyone i know is very please with the result. I think a large Majority of players have a renewed faith in the game management.

The reason it isnt allowed is because you can hunt people down via character names. You can actually find my personal facebook, WoW character, and my gmail via Googling Catclaw

List of names might be an overkill because of all the laws in all regions. But seriously not even a number?

Well don't expect me to be a beliver then. You just said "We did it" and all we can do  is trust your words. Not really a good standing for a company that already  mislead it's customers a few times...

instead of witch hunting GMs and being a bully. Use your energy into witch hunting those who exploted and reporting them. :)
