Neverwinter: Weekend Exploit Repaired



  • sylum69sylum69 toronto, ONPosts: 100Member Uncommon
    I'm still a little unclear on what exactly the exploit was. Can anyone be so kind as spoon feed me what happened? From what I understand this was about buying Astral Diamonds. What were people doing exactly?

     It is suspect as they didn't fix anything!  They just plugged the hole and brought the service back online as fast as they could. All for the bottom line. Profitting!

    1. The 7 hour rollback is a joke and nothing more than a token action. Pure for PR purposes. Especially since this exploit became Public at least 24 hours prior to the servers being taken Down! So People have been mass exploiting this for a hell lot longer than 7 hours!

    2. The exploit existed since OBT started and the smart ones have been exploiting this very carefully and using tons of mule accounts to launder everything away.

    3. They now gave out some perma bans. Again, just a token action for PR purposes, as only the Extreme cases of the last couple hours prior to shut Down got this perma ban. Most got away With just a 72 hour suspension! Absolutely hilarious, as it just means the ones that have been exploiting this the most and done so for weeks keep all their AD and get away With it. All due to the amount of accounts they have been using to spread it out.

    But the most disturbing thing of this all, is how it all Plays directly in PWE's favor!

    1. The AD/Zen Exchange ratio is back to 500 to 1 !

    2. All Zen is gone, so People have to repopulate the AD/Zen Exchange With Zen again With "REAL" Money!

    No matter how the most die hard fans try to Slice this. No matter how PWE and Cryptic try to PR spin this.  It's a Financial win/win situation for PWE's bottomline! Profit!

    I agree it could be a nice Financial win/win for them but if i can get more AD for my Zen again  than i win too.

    My money  is worth more again thats a positive thing.

    Its really only bad for the ppl who don't want to spend any real money to play and well i honestly don't care about them.

    This is really typical of both Cryptic and PW.  I am not surprised at all.  I just cannot believe people are so gullible as to think this game is worth spending money on.   Get your fun out of the game and then get out.  If you are foolish enough to spend money, all I can say is it must be nice to have money to throw away. I did have fun playing the game, but what is the point of developing a character when sticking around requires dumping a lot of money in the game? This game is an outright money sink.  

    Don't you think having fun is worth spending some money? Just take take take and never thinking of giving.

    I'm enjoying the game and having fun. I just bought the founder's pack so far but if I continue to have fun, I'll think about buying something else. My time is valuable so if something is worth my time, then it's worth some money.

    Or both is more likely from what I am seeing.

    Correct... from what I have read on different sites this is a bad code that was found in STO a while back and they just copied the code into NWO. Exploiting a game is bad, but what is worse is when the company was so lazy as to use bad code that was confirmed in another game for the new game. At this point I have lost any trust in PWE and especially Cryptic I ever had.

    I uninstalled this game. The failure to properly address the severity of this makes this game a failure imo.

    I am so glad they found this bug befor the release. 

    Roll back system in place - is also a good news.

    Interesting, since none of the exploits could possibly affect you in your first 5 minutes of gameplay. Literally ZERO effect,.

    I have a lvl 40 GW..i meant that after I found out about what was going on m8 lol..the game is great..I love the combat but they have let it go to ruin..sorry I should have made my post clearer.

    It' really makes me sad that the game is F2P and apparently run by morons.  I really like the game, I think it's very good in a lot of ways.  The cash shop BS, the way crafting is tuned to almost force you to buy the booster packs is very annoying.  I could care less about a fast mount but it's nearly impossible to get a worthwhile pet/companion without buying one on your first character legit.  You're fine until level 30 but then your free pet stops being really effective.   And getting to level 30 takes a couple of days, that drives me crazy.  I understand trying to make the game not be a grind fest, but the leveling is really way too fast.  I have no problem at all paying for extra character slots, backpacks, bank space, dyes, fancy looking mounts..  but it's really taken too far in this game.

    If you are making money with gaming, that's good. If you are using exploits for that, that's not good and you should be banned (and you should lose all that money).
    Before you ask: yes, I'm poor too, but I never use any exploits.

    Signatures are boring things.

    The only way that you can stop cheating in any way, shape or form is to kill off the entire human race.  I hate PWE ... greedy bishes.  The people that exploited the glitch are probably familiar with PWE tactics.  Sadly, it took me 3 years to realize that you can NOT, NOT, NOT play their games for free and remain competitive.  Either spend cash or never level much passed 30.  I wish I had known about the exploit. I would have been giving out AD as fast I could to everyone. A PWE ban is a joke.   Cheers to all the exploiters and here's to hoping that someone finds another.
