    First of all thank you for acting on this.

    @GM Rhotaaz can you give some more insight on how you got to that number of silver? For example were all the +50 stacks items removed that they looted? Or was this calculated in silver and added negative balance to the warehouses? Thanks.

    @GM Rhotaaz
    And what about your "BDO Partner" who spoke on stream that a GM told him, that its actually allowed to use the maps and told everyone?
    May want to reconsider the partner from your side, since this gives really bad reputation for your company.

    There is some misinformation amongst the community regarding the punishments in KR. The silver reduction was also at 1:1 ratio when it happened over there.

    I dont understand the outrage, 23 people will get perma because they were the ones who supplied the maps, the rest are going to get millions upon millions of negative balance, at least they did something, stop crying.

    Welp, this shows us that if there is an exploit, take advantage of it, just don't overdo it and you'll be fine.

    This exactly. How do you partner people and have them promote exploitation of said game.

    and then on another note. How are only 23 people being perma banned? Vert and other streamers literally sat there for 2-3hrs logging account names for you guys that did this exploitation. They certainly knew it was an exploit whether they made accounts or not. Anyone that turned up needs something further than just the value in silver that they earned subtracted from their account or you’re just further enabling them to exploit next time. Ignorance of a law unfortunately isn’t a defence for breaking it. That’s the message that needs to be sent here for all the exploited.

    They sure did something. They told us that it's okay to exploit so long as you arent the ringleaders. That's useful info to have.

    so how did u value failstacks and other misc items?

    as we know, purchase of a 40 stack ingame is VERY expensive via dragon scales. if we see how much more it costs from 20 stack obtained that way, 50 and above should be VERY VERY VERY EXPENSIVE.

    what was your formula?

    Only 23 perma banned for their excessive participation in organizing this, AND silver balance reduction for other who gained more than a threshold they chose.
    Basically, there's more than 23 punishments, if that's what bothers you.

    The reduction of the silver they earned is basically a slap on the wrists. It’s pathetic.

    How come not even a temporary ban? I mean obviously if you’re in a siege guild you have knowledge of the events and how they work since you already have experience about the game, and if you have that knowledge then you’re self aware that if you’re spending 2 hours or so killing boxes for easy loot/silver you SHOULD know that’s an exploit gosh

    Your criticial thinking skills are the same as a 5 year old or you dont grasp how bad it is to have negative silver balance.

    So they getting out with a slap on their wrist after they turned everything they got into higher profit? You know they got failstacks from this event too, and failstack + accesories -> PRI-DUO-TRI even TET, they made way bigger profit from this than what they looted, will you also remove the money they profited from enchancing using these materials?
