    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans June 5 - July 11

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    FB: 1

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:


    New Elite/Legendary Crafting Items!

    The next batch of Elite/Legendary crafting recipes is ready to go! Here’s what you can craft now:

    Update to Manual Freezes and Tracking

    "Papers, Please": A unique security code is now passed along with each action so we can verify if it is legitimate when it hits our servers. This enables us to see players who are using tools to "replay" action links within the game without having to click their mouse.

    Additionally, I'd like to pass along a reminder that if you are using a Chrome browser extension to help automate play, we can see and are logging those actions. We will be contacting players who are using any extensions or other tools to automate play and will be dishing out the appropriate punishments.

    Keep up to date on our ongoing efforts to combat bots and cheating in the Manual Freezes and Tracking thread.

    Support Report with your favorite burrowing nocturnal mammal and Answerpreneur, Aardvark!

    Happy Friday!

    The big news for us here in Support is that our ticketing system just got an upgrade, which comes with a much nicer look and a variety of under-the-hood improvements to help keep accounts secure and make sure everyone gets looked after.

    I'm especially happy with the new look of the staff interface, as the old one was a total eyesore. Seriously, it was agony in pink and beige. Pink and beige.

    Of course, because nothing is apparently permitted to be easy, the Facebook connect plugin broken when we switched over, and nobody could login with their Facebook accounts. However we were able to get this fixed fairly quickly and players shouldn't have any trouble reaching their Support accounts to submit or check on tickets. :)
