    Hey everyone, @mi7ch is away, so I'm in charge of getting the word out about today's War issue. I'm not as active on the forum side of things as he is, so please bear with me!

    The Wars launched this morning with a bug in the system that managed Token regeneration. Pretty much for the first hour of so of the event, players were getting full reloads of their tokens without having to spring for refills.

    Although most Syndicates were not impacted, this did skewed the balance of competition in favor of players who were active during that time, and was unfair to players who used FP towards refills during that time when they didn't have to. :(

    We could tell something weird was going on in the event by the usual activity patterns, but we didn't realize the source of the issue was a Token regeneration bug until we started getting reports for players. Thank you to everyone who sent us messages about the Wars, because of you guys we were able to find and kill the bug that caused this much faster!

    To address competitive imbalances caused by this issue, the devs are putting together a correction that will remove those War Points acquired using the extra Tokens generated by this bug while it was live. If you refilled your Tokens using FP during the time this bug was live, War Points earned with your purchased Tokens will not be affected.

    Fortunately, this bug was caught early enough that the majority of Syndicates shouldn't see any change to their War Points at all. *whew*

    I'll post an update when it goes live, and will check in on this thread periodically today to help answer any questions you people have.


    The patch is now live!

    Just my opinion you should just leave it how it is.... cause you are gonna get so many complaints regardless, people saying you took more points away than you were suppose to and people crying cause they missed out on the glitch... There will be no winning with whatever you decide to do...

    How can you tell which token came from the bug, which one was obtained properly and what token was used at what time to make what point...?

    Exactly... we wont get our FPs back tho watch... they will mess up all our points in syn war and take the kills that were obtained with the FPs and not the ones with their glitch.

    Yes this will give just as many complains. I for example came on when everyone knew the error were there, so I dumped my tokens on a low sync since they regenerated (and every b and c sync was dead), now I get to keep that that score because you roll back to a given point you believe to be correct. Not okay.

    If you are going to start "correcting" things, are you going to take into account peoples time and effort whilst taking advantage. If you are going to remove War Points, I assume you will also replace Stamina spent and compensate for time and effort put in during those early minutes somehow ? Also, how are you account for what would have been normal activity ? My play behaviour would certainly have been different and more targeted rather than all out attack. Also which War Points are you going to correct - those at full percentage or those reduced due to low health ? Bearing this in mind how are you accounting for normal regeneration during the active period and how these tokens would have been used - full or partly effective attacks and the relative benefit ?

    Further more, how is the XP gained during this period going to be handled ? More information will be required to prevent aggrevating loyal players, i.e. those who were active, ready and waiting for the war to start as opposed to those who reacted later and just whinged about wanting compensation. Some things are best left alone after an admission of fault and apology.
  11. I hope replacement od stamina used for the players who were active during this period will also be realized. Thank you!! It was a blast LOL

    also .. those syns that were killed during this war .. will you take back the death seeing that the death would NOT have happened if it was not a free for all! and replace the wps they lost for dying! so many ways to look at this .. but honestly i just want my fps back that i spent if your going to remove my wps i gained with them!

    This looks extremely messy :( Best of luck resolving it... It could take a while.

    that is the ONLY fair thing to do. to try to determine what is normal or not is ridiculous.... wipe this event, and restart it.
