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,

On a scale of RN to Muskan, what are the odds that they'll be really banned? Is that announcement just a visual bug? Will we know in the next episode? So much suspense.

They were banned. There are screenshots on Discord of players who got banned. Also, on Reddit, a player said his entire guild got banned.

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.

Selling the shards definitely wasn't the criteria. As mentioned before, if you suspect any players that used the exploit but were not banned, please report them and we'll investigate their account.

I can confirm this screenshot is real, as I was the one sending out the ban messages.

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. 

Just wait 7 days (or 24h in some competitive guilds) and boot them when they hit their limit of how long they are allowed to be offline.

as much as i understand and respect the decision to not name and shame, the flip side is doing that helps the players confirm/deny if people actually got banned. if you say player bobo15 got banned but they see bobo15 still in game the next day, players can confirm/deny if people got banned.

That's not the reason you people want name and shame and you know it.
Just stop.

Why ask for that level of toxicity and negativity to add to these forums?
Nothing good whatsoever has come from that type of behavior.
Just look at your forum title and tell me differently. You picked it yourself.

Who are you trying to fool, bro.

Very well handled and executed!

 

Please also keep notes of all their gaming accounts/e-mails etc, so that when these filthy -----s try to do the chargeback, you can contest them as banned from game for violating the rules so they don't get a single penny back...

Blizzard ONLY did it in CHINA, NOT in north america and they had to remove it because of legal issues.

Please don't say things without being fully informed on the topic.

For one, I never stated anything about North America, all I said was that Blizzard did it.
I didn't say anything about being informed either.

RU/KR/JP BDO however, does this and I think NA should follow suit.
I believe it ANYONE uses shady tactics in a game, they should be outed.

Then again, the community will find a way to make a list of people who cheated, whether it be tumblr or their own set of forums.

Former guildy of mine got a 72 hr ban. :|

72 hour ban? is this even a ban? Ban is when you try to log in to a game and it says banned till 2050.

Yeah thats my opinion as well. They must be doing the bans on how long you did the exploit. He only did it for 9 days

The bans have already been applied. If you suspect that a player used the exploit and you see that he is currently not banned, you can report them here and we'll investigate their account.

Best regards,

Guys, as the CM has said above, if you're  still seeing people online that you believe cheated you can use that form above to report.

Thing is, alot of people track Korean BDO, that exploit is known there, players want some sort of information atleast a number of players banned, so they can judge accordingly, because for example lets say they banned 10 people, no way i will believe only 10 people exploited.
