Dear ExperienceRO,

 

It's very disheartening to hear this has happened...

 

What happened...

 

The Freebie feature was designed in a way that once you happen to find it, it'll move to another new location. However, the Freebie feature glitched and it remained at the same spot. There were many players involved who... abused the Freebie bug, and they got "rewarded" with Freebies that they do not deserve. What I expected was this, that players would have taken the effort to report it to a GM, or to make a topic in the forums or Discord, but to my dismay, there were not new topics made on this neither on the forums, nor were there any on Discord.

 

Incidents like this simply shows the maturity of the community. Your selfishness doesn't only reflect on yourself, but it also affects the server's economy, with the sudden influx of currencies introduced into the market, which is bad.

 

We are always against foul play and we discourage the abuse of bugs. Should anyone found/discover any bugs on the server, they are to report it, and in the past, and still do, they get rewarded handsomely for it. However, I guess times have changed and players decided to abuse it rather than to report it.

 

We were so close to a rollback to be carried out, but having in mind those who were farming in places like Temple, etc. (unfortunately the minority), it wouldn't be fair for them.

 

We were so close to a wipe as well, a server-wide wipe on the items affected like Mithril Coins, Platinum Coins, Bloody Branches, etc. but then, it would be unfair too for those who earned them the hard way.

 

We were so close to punish everyone as well by closing the server down for a few days, for the currencies to settle in, but then it's not the best approach to this...

 

So what I did was, I spent the last few hours running through the server logs, running queries after queries, looking only for items appearing in your inventory, in moonhaven, from 12 midnight to 8:00 am, on 30th March 2018.

 

I almost cried with the results returned from the queries...

 

I copied the results, pasted them into Excel, and ran through them one by one after exhausting various methods of sorting through the data.

 

Those involved in the abuse will be listed below, serving a temporary ban, starting at 6:00pm of 30th March 2018, and the duration based on the formula below:

 

Duration of Punishment (in hours rounded to the closest 10):

[ ( Number of Records Returned / 10 (every 10 records denote 1 hour) ] / 12 (assuming you get to play 12 hours of ERO a day, which obviously most of you don't)

Disappointed...

 

You get to keep them...
