  • people being barred from the game for eploiting a programming error

    as you may or may not be aware that some player have been banned from their account for exploiting a programming error, they have not been hacking, or trying to adjust balen gain, just been using a glitch in the game progamers system, this actually is not illegal as they have found away to use the jewel hunt aspect of the game to increase the way it rewards,and not stopped them from paying moneys to R2 for the privalages of playing the game, I would advise anybody whom this has happend to to speak to thier card providers to get them to pull all transactions from R2 as this has not been deamed illegal by R2, in the forums or world chat and thus have breached their own standard

    I see many posts here asking R2 to be fair and equitable in the way they treat their players. These people are obviously unaware of the fact that R2 could care less about their players, especially the non-cashers, or those who spend very little money.
    Like many others, I have observed heavy cashers violating the exploitation of glitches rule with no action taken. I have also noticed that the lag problem draw the largest number of complaints/comments. I have been playing for about 2 years, and the lag issue is getting worse every day, with apparently no attempts to correct the problem.
    At this point, the only thing keeping me in the game are the friends I have made while playing, and the fact that I do enjoy a few of of the events.

    In my opinion, best thing to do when you discover a bug is to report it and then not exploit it. It sucks knowing that others are getting unfair gain while I do things the right way, but the alternative is to risk being banned whenever R2 feels like it. Perhaps those with only time invested in the game see that as a risk worth taking. Being as I'm a heavy casher, I prefer not to risk letting my entertainment money be stolen over a paltry handful of illicit rewards.

    Taking advantage of the way the programming is written to gain advantage outside of the way the game is intended to work is considered exploiting a bug. The enforcement seems fairly random; I know there are several people on my server who exploit bugs and/or bot the atoll. So far, none of them have been banned over it, but if R2 got a wild hair, they could probably ban quite a few players over minor stuff that is about on par with shoplifting a pack of gum. Its still wrong and its still something you could potentially be punished for, but is it worth the effort?

    Don't do it cuz it's bad, mmmkay?

    It's a morally ambiguous topic, I think. Either don't do it and maybe get banned or do it anyway and maybe get banned.

    I asked one of them and my guess was right...To use this exploit...actually I don't think I should say it. Anyways, it is not based on br.

    What a joke, not got any justified answer from any mod or g.m of r2 even after 4 days of opening the thread and producing the screenshot. Or atleast say u will not take the same action against the cashers and we non- cashers have the right to remain silent.

    Face it. If you are a hard casher, no game developer will ban you. They are here for the money. Reputation and fairness is a distant second.
    I'm a level 80 and in sacred fire since it came out, so I only heard about this "exploit", but people said it works this way:
    1.) People are now bracketed in BG based on BR, not level.
    2.) So you undress before entering the BG, then dress up there.

    I don't think this is an exploit. This is just using bad rules to your advantage. It's the same as making and equipping a PATK astral by a mage to increase BR before a BR ranking event.
    This glitch should be cured on the server's side.

    1.) One solution would be to disallow euqipment, astral, sylph change inside BG. This wouldn't be a great idea, however, often people enter with the wrong stuff, and realize after the first fight, and they quickly change.
    2.) Just revert to the old system! Make BG based on LEVEL. Level camping is a BAD strategy anyway, you win in one aspect (honor) and you lose in 1000 other where you could gain a lot more if you were 80.
    3.) The game's main goal is to increase BR to gain advantage. If increasing your BR does not get you any advantage (ie. you are paired with people of the same BR) what's the point in playing? This was a totally pointless change, and I'm glad people "exploit" it to help devs realize this must be changed.

    Threatening to hack peoples accounts and threats of real life harm seem to be a casher perk as well. The r2 response to screen shots of this activity is:

    Dear Player,
    Thank you for your reply. According to the image you have provided there’s nothing wrong with the player shouted in public.
    Nothing violation have done on it. So further we cannot do anything about this matter. Thank you.

    They shouldn't ban players for something which is their fault. They can simple fix it like how they made it impossible for people to survive the death blow by WB

    shadowgammadraco i just want to know is this ToS is only for the non-cashers of only one guild on the server where more than 90% using the bug for there benifit?if u say barring is right, only for few or for all who used it? I personally belive if u do anything it should be for either all or for none.
    and i know it was not only used on my server but on most of the server. so just want the high official of r2 to deal it fair.
