So for those of you who have not been keeping up to date with the current scandal within the MO world.
The trading guild AIM was found to have generated the majority of their resources via exploitation. This means that the largest trading guild in the game who a LOT of people bought goods from and incredibly deflated prices was removed from the GM by the GMs. The entire city was blown up in an instant and several people received bans. However this leaves a whole lot of illegitimate items spread out across the map which the GMs can not track. Basically fucking up the economy.
