Hey all, Earlier this morning our developers closed down the “Referrals and Rewards” program that was being offered to some players. Thanks to reports we’ve been getting, we became aware of a potential exploit in the system and took actions to minimize the damage for the short term. That system will remain inactive until we figure out the cause of the problem and fix that up. We’ve also identified a limited number of accounts (under 10) that have been affected by this to a large extent. Unfortunately, though some players did report the issue and didn’t take advantage of it, others used the feature as it wasn’t intended, and have created situations on their accounts that could cause database problems and instability in the game While it looks like the short-term gain might be good, extended use of anything outside the game’s intended function can cause irreparable harm to a character. We’ve already taken some steps to restore these accounts to balance and will continue to work on doing so. If you do notice anything that isn’t behaving like it should, please report it to us and we’ll take a look. Any steps that you can include to help reproduce it and come up with a fix will be rewarded with Favor Points — these are our mistakes, and people who catch them and let us know deserve our gratitude and support. While the damage done has been minimal, we would have preferred that no damage had been caused at all. We'd like to apologize to those players who were directly affected by players using this exploit. Our intention was to help new players invite their friends and receive a reward for doing so, and the ability to farm it was not by design. We deeply regret and apologize that we introduced something that a few players were able to take advantage of, but we will be working to make that right as soon as possible. I’d like to extend a thank you to those who have reported this exploit to us and to the vast majority of players who have used the Referrals and Rewards program in the spirit in which it was intended.
