    Greetings Adventurers,


    During an investigation into reports of a potential exploit last April, our team determined that it was, in fact, possible for users to send multiple workers to a single node. Shortly after, a patch was applied to resolve this bug. However, due to an oversight in the applied patch, some elements of the bug were not fully removed. One such example was the failure to reset all player’s workers, including those that were being utilized in the exploit.

    It was later discovered that some users’ workers were still designated to a single node. This allowed the continued use of multiple workers on a single node, and has subsequently been resolved as of July 12th maintenance.

    Users that have been identified as using this exploit will be penalized. Based on further investigations, we have decided to take the following actions dependent on the severity of the involved players’ activities. Sanctions against the exploiters will be handled as follows.

    • Permanent Ban
      • 3 Users have been found to have used complex methods to intentionally and maliciously utilize the exploit for extremely high-value gains.
    • 72 Hour Suspension & Removal of Illicit Earnings
      • 40 Users have been found to have used the exploit to a lesser degree.

    We apologize for the insufficient measures taken to resolve this exploit sooner and will do our best to prevent such oversights in the future.

    I wonder which ban some streamer that may or may not exists falls under. Or are streamers exempt?

    Thank you for this I guess, you actually gave numbers for once. :O

    Kakao progress?

    Not sure what to think about the 40 others breaking the TOS and not getting perma banned though. Most likely an excuse to not ban Senor Exploiques.

    Well, thank you for letting us know about what has been done, it's appreciated.

    Oh well, so once BB returns from his 72 hour suspension, he'll be only at 7.98 bil, how unfortunate for him, maybe some of his followers could make donations. Meantime, we can speculate about the other 39 offenders...

    :)

    people are hating the fact that he gets a special treatment because he's a streamer.

    It's not "the screenshot did look like" lol there are plenty of clips of his older streams where u can def see that he did the double workers on node for multiple nodes.

    If he's in the 72h ban when he obviously cheated for more than a few months, it's just a joke.

    Big streamer or not, penalty still has to be equal to all.

    More likely people are hating him because he used exploits and has a big mouth. But if he gets 72h ban for months of worker exploits, then we could say:
    If you are big streamer, then you will get smaller penalty than normal players.

    It seems that I have been one of those "40 ppl"
    I have never used and always stayed away from exploits.
    Explain to me again what did I do wrong because I am confused and upset for being banned a second time by your mistake.

    so this post confirms Senor Smoques was infact cheating last time he got banned as the only way to have multiple workers on a single node right now was to have had them going from before the last fix. ok then
