I feel it's totally warranted and i'm strongly displeased by the fact that they deleted the whole thread. I would understand censoring/removing the posts with the details of this exploit or the callouts, even @Eika's video could certainly be removed and receive a text description, with no names/nicks, of what happened like:
- Player logins as usual and as he verifies his PVP notifications; he is awarded with 1200ish defense victories and 300ish defensive losses gaining (roughly) 5K of Glory, 200K of Gold, 500(?) Gems and X gold keys. He reaches Tier 1 on PVP and get all the rewards instantly.
I understand that Sirrian, maybe Nimhain and others are on vacation/traveling and i'm fine waiting for their return to have an statement, but i can't help but feeling that it LOOKS like a silencing tactic, but i still hope that things were just rushed in some sense while dealing with the thread in question.
Yes it is, with the tasks people were supposed to play, gather gold and exchange the resources, the problem is that this new PVP gave us so much gold that infinite tasks as long as you can collect gold was breaking the economy and any chance of revenue as gems could be gathered easily.
@Saltypatra, could you please inform us something, it's a fact that the thread and the issue at hand got some atention, but is there anything that could be said in this regard?
