    Today, we applied a permanent ban on 3 accounts that were found to be intentionally manipulating certain aspects and fabricating in-game elements; in this case, the server time to expedite processes.

    Although the number of people exploiting in this way was small, the level of gains was high. We want you to be aware that we take actions like this extremely seriously and are ever-vigilant on stamping out malicious activity in Black Desert Online.

    In order to limit abuse, we aren’t going to give specifics on the exploit but wish to assure you that it is no longer possible.

    Let them continue to play, just add a randomizer to their food buffs, ability, and channel swap cool-down timers. Let the punishment fit the crime

    If they're banned, and the exploit is fixed.. why can it not be shared?

    Probably isn't actually fixed, like the 2 workers 1 node thing.

    The less information you provide about your actions, the easier it gets to assume things like you not fixing the exploits they were using etc.

    We can still get specifics because like this at least we know what is going on. Besides it doesn't matter if you give more details because guess what You can Perma Ban that slug. The posts sometimes confuse me...

    No 72h ban only? Guess they weren't streamers.

    @Blade Boques did you happen to "test" this one as well?

    Hey, you can do a topic like this every hour and ban no one.

    "There have been 4 accounts banned for doing something."

    "5 accounts were found doing something against the TOS and banned."

    Still crap servers, ultra bad community management, not listening to players AT ALL, so keep reporting useless stuff specially when there is actual zero proof about those bans happening.

    You wonder what kind of developers they hire. The number one rule in programming is never trust client data.

    the server time to expedite processes.

    is the reason they got banned maybe by passing the cool down timer on changeing servers. for e.g when bosses spawn that would be high gains.
