GM News - Mechanics abuse blocked

Post by ardesia » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:23 am

The Game Team has recently been able discovering and blocking a case of huge mechanics abuse.
Investigations took many days of game logs reading, of game rumors hearing, of players consultation and interrogation, of dedicate testing which involved both OV and FT teams.

The abuse has been disclosed.
The mechanics has been fixed.

All accounts of main abusers have been jailed.
We are going to jail any new account they are going to create, until they accept communicating with us in a civil way, confess and accept punishment.

We cannot of course make details and names public, but we think it is important to let players know this was going on.

We also wish to thanks all the good players who helped us providing info and sharing with us their feeling on something being wrong :)

Just a few days after the previous case, the Game Staff has become aware of a mechanics abuse related with a quest.
We cannot describe it in a public post, of course, but we do believe it important to let players know:

[*] the mechanics has been changed, so it is no more abusable

[*] a few players have been found guilty abusing it; this is an info stored in game server, so we are totally certain about it. They have been punished accordingly to how much they were abusing it. Punishement resulted in accounts being reset to level 1 in some cases

[*] the player who reported the bug and the abuse has been rewarded

It is possible that the in-game message that has been sent to each punished account got lost (lag does that sometimes).
Please contact us if you think you are among the ones that have been punished and wish to ask for more info.

Dear players,

an abuse of game mechanics has been discovered.

The abusers are producing game money in illegal ways.

This is very bad for the game community.

It is our intention to take care of it and safeguard everyone's gameplay experience.
To do so, we are very sorry to inform you that we had to temporary move to Jail Map a small number of characters, who are suspected of being abusing the bug.
We are going to talk with the owners, as soon as they contact us, to figure out their role in it.

We apologise for any disturbance to innocent ones.
Thanks for your help and support! :)
