    I love this game, and I agree, 99% of the people are really nice, decent and helpful.
    It's really bad when the minority do things that make life harder for others, like the devs losing their sleep time & family time to sort out the mess said minority have created.
    And yes, I believe they work hard. The GMs too work very hard, they have always been patient and very helpful in assisting me with any problems I encounter in the game. They have always responded quickly and given me some good advice. Often I think they are not given enough credit for what they do.

    If it was an old exploit why wasn't it fixed .

    It probably was fixed, until maybe someone found a new way around to exploit the same thing.

    Do y'all need help searching Stack Overflow for a fix? I only program in BASIC but I can maneuver that dumpsterfire like a 15 year Python veteran. Think of it as a bind wound chain instead of a cleric. It might work!

    The scenario required probably isn't something that naturally occurs that often. It likely flew under the radar for a long time.

    after almost 4 hours, it seems rather sensible to me to share what is wrong with the community. Mouths will close, and you will gain sympathy for getting us involved.

    After all this time, the maintenance is still ongoing? Just wow, did someone try to break the game apart that it takes soo long to fix it?

    Seriously, ANOTHER 'Emergency Maintenance'???? It's not maintenance when you're searching for code that allows an exploit which shouldn't have made it into live servers in the first place. :confused:

    I suspect if they EVER get all the bugs (including major exploits such as this 'Emergency Downtime' is apparently about) and other problems fixed & the game running smoothly, 95% of the player community will die of a heart attack. Then there won't be anyone around to keep the game afloat and the entire team will suddenly become unemployed.

    Truth is, we'll NEVER have to worry about that EVER happening, will we? :cool:

    Get with it team! o_O

    If this is truly the basis of the current Emergency, then they utterly failed in correcting the problem the first time it happened.
    Bad coding on this level should mean plenty of pink slip warnings. It's unconscionable that something so devastating should EVER be possible on live servers in games like this.

    But, when so many people just accept low or even horrible quality products & just keep on paying, what are the rest of us to do?

    no computer code is bug free
  15. shaunisme Member

    its addiction.

    I realize that, but there is a vast quantity of bugs in this game, some that have been around for years if not a decade or more... Many should be stupidly simple to fix.

    yeah but you have to pick your battles with limited resources

    this bug is bad, should never have happened, but it has and now they have to fix it asap and that means game down

    Just another reason they should rotate the devs on "bug duty" - EVERY week, one dev doing NOTHING but coding bug fixes and sending them up for the next weeks patch. Make it simple, start with the small stuff! (like missing goblin harvest rares.... I posted it, but am sure it will NEVER get done, cuz it's only level 1-9 mats and not a single bump yet some 6wks on).

    But, again, something that's likely never gonna happen.

    Try to be patient, it needs to be fixed right so this doesn't happen again. Also try to understand this wasn't a minor plat exploit, this was a serious effort by the leader of a guild named Secret Service to destroy Tarinax, this unfortunately spilled over to other servers.
