    Especially their main accounts that they fund by exploiting. If they just ban the account exploited on nothing is fixed.

    you guys should check to where the mesos transferred, because players who took advantage on this exploit done it on alt accounts...
    and ban their main accounts.

    also, can you send gm to twilight perion? mesos botters in all maps and in all channels.. we can't train there.
    thanks.

    It's unfortunate but it's an unscheduled maintenance. If it's not them, it'll be the people affected 2 hours after reset. Sacrifices will always have to be made.

    It sucks for those who missed out a day of attendance whether it's for Re:Zero or Wonderoid. But they can always extend, reduce the amount of days required, or give a free day's worth.

    Besides, giving more time before the reset versus patching a game-breaking exploit. Most of us would weigh patching the exploit as soon as possible.

    The exploit is related to Re:Zero's Attendance. However the method was only possible by hacking which specifics can't be mentioned how due to the forum rules.

    Using those hacks, they were able to re-complete a quest without actually completing it and obtain rewards every single time. Reward Boxes can contain mesos, spell traces and much more. The only way for legitimate players to notice is that quite a few suspicious people with gibberish IGNs managed to win 500 million mesos that's announced world-wide which was uncommon and very unlikely.


    I was wrong. It was to fix the overstay in investigation mode by 15 minutes.

    I thought they addressed that on the backend? I wasn't seeing any messages later on yesterday.

    It would really suck if all they did was address the logout exploit at stairs during investigation...

    Maybe abusers were just farming boxes and not using them until the dead hours. I don't know because we were never told what was done.

    I highly doubt an unscheduled maintenance will be related to fixing an event. The only reason that they could is if it gave abnormal rewards such as the BFF event.

    I'm not too sure on the specifics on how Nexon works in patching exploits, but I assuming they bandaged it without a maintenance. Now I'm assuming they're just making sure to close off the loophole for good.

    Since this thread and reply exists, I believe it is related to the Re:Zero Random Boxes and Attendance.

    Most of the things Nexon does in order to punish people are not disclosed to the public in order to avoid a countermeasure by cheaters to go-around their investigation methods. I can only assume that even if they didn't open their exploited boxes, they'll still be caught for using the method to obtain them in the first place.

    I hope this will solve the market of the superior crystal. Since 4 days ago I noticed an indiscriminate increase of superior crystal in the auction
    Before very rare form someone sells 400/1000 superior crystal at the same time.
    But for 4 days I noticed in the auction 10 to 20 pack of 9000 superior crystal
    And thanks to this the market was devalued so much that its regular cost of 750k / 1m step to 350k / 400k mesos
