Wow! This must be the fastest they have ever reacted to an exploit.
It's only been ~4 hours since it's gone public.
Time for more hacked gear to go unnoticed?
Really doubt it would happen. If so, looks like my inventory filled with Red Cubes will be gone. :(
This is an enhancement hack, not a dupe. A rollback is completely unnecessary.
Not defending hacking at all but...
I've always seen people mention how some hacked gear can go unnoticed but aside from the massive-mass-duped versions which flooded the market (ST's, cravens, vss etc) does a few OP items really make that big of a difference to the game and its economy?
Aside from it of course being incredibly vexing that a handful of scumbags got away with doing the wrong thing for their own gain and screwing over the majority of the maple population with a server maintenance. As well as the fact that for every well-geared legit player there's always one guy with hacked gear that can do it better. I just don't know how bad it is overall :L
You answered your own question.
My own justification felt insignificant for me but that's probably due to how I view this game (i.e. not a big deal)
Really glad there's no rollback. I just perfectly scrolled a heart with 8 atts. D:
Ah damn that didn't take long.. was looking forward to playing tonight.
Off to AC4 ;)
If it were really contained to a small number of people, it wouldn't be a big deal, but these kinds of hacked equips have a habit of being duplicated and then spreading.
Even if there wasn't another exploit to create more, there very existence has impacts on the economy and can affect the prices of other items. This is particularly evident when people try to profit from these hacks by selling them on the black market or in the FM.
They're really gonna enjoy the Christmas holiday break.... Long patch, emergency SC, rollback and another emergency SC followed by a scheduled SC...
It's not the weekend.
shops were still set up in the Free Market, oh well. Nice to see them react quickly at least.
Long patch - Done
Emergency SC - TBD
Rollback - Done
Scheduled SC - TBD
Surely this was to be expected & with the introduction of new content in the upcoming patch (Maybe after Zero) then I am sure we will see plenty more of exploits. This may sound weird but hackers are really helping Nexon to step up their game.
Oh God these hackers keep making this game worse and worse everyday.
Look at the bright side, we're getting a really nice compensation, Davy.
Too bad we already scrolled our RA, huh?
Too bad it all expires within 7 days and all our gear is untradable
Actually I still have a couple of things to scroll, like my specs, Gollux earrings / ring (Ain't nobody got time for Gollux scroll farming).
That's more than enough slots to use all of the protection and safety scrolls we'll get
EDIT: Planning on using my stashed booming 40% iCoGs, as I don't have enough coins for those 60% iCoGs.
