    Will players that exploited the daily deals to get runes etc. be part of the ban wave?

    Players that exploited the daily deal feature to get an impossible number of runes will be affected by the ban wave as well, yes!

    Does this mean that only those who have lots of runes get banned? or also the players who got endless amounts of polished / radiant gem bags, clovers, draken, essence and spheres. Or will there follow another ban wave and is this only to take out the players that abused the bug the most? Also i didn't read anything about the craftings bug what is going to happen to those players? I doubt they will be affected by R207 so how long do we have to wait become this also becomes a priority?

    +1 to crafting question. They sort of mentioned workbench, but would be nice to hear specific 'yes'.

    The the FAQ of the release it says "The situation was getting dry and was time for another ban wave. With this ban wave, we are not only focusing on bot users but also on exploiters (e.g. daily deals, workbench)."

    I'm hoping that means they will hit each and everyone of them hard....

    As for my feedback, I give this one two BIG thumbs up! Best release in a long time.

    In the post, they said "However, the way our detection works it does not matter anymore if a player was using the exploit last year or last month. So, the punishment will happen, better late than never." To me, that sounds like their method doesn't look at how many gems, or runes, or whatever. Instead, it sounds like they detected some sort of exploit signature. For example, it could be something like claiming the daily deal more than once in a given day, especially immediately before and after a re-log.

    Time to go take pictures of the leaderboards. If it is like the bot bans of the past, they cheaters won't be removed until after the season, but I want to watch scores. If the top 10-20 from each class suddenly stop gaining honor for nearly a whole week before the end of the season, it is a safe bet that they were cheating. I know the forums won't let us post the names/evidence, but The Wall of Shame on the wiki will be the place to check in the next couple days. :D

    In hope they didn't mess up with the buggy daily gifts, those crap daily boxes for the login. I remember getting it twice few times. Could be smth with time zones or whatever.

    Likewise. I also got my daily deal box twice over the last 4 months. Lets hope they are smart enough to tell the difference between a bug and an exploit. And if they do look the same, lets hope they don't over react and use a little common sense.

    As evidence that they do, I refer you to the Piñata Exploit. They could tell the difference between heavy abuse, light abuse, and "just curious" abuse and treated those cases appropriately.

    Hello heroes, just a brief interjection to remind you that this is a feedback thread, and to please remain on topic, we won't tolerate direct accusations or general derrailing; there are a couple other threads where you can wander a bit more off-topic already, and in the proper forum sections. At critical times like this, having clean feedback is crucial, so please bear this in mind for further posts, best regards.

    "Rune of Relentlessness
    Some of you might remember that there was a restriction on how often the Rune of Relentlessness could drop during the Defeat the Undefeatable event - this is now gone. If you are lucky enough you can collect as many Runes of Relentlessness as you want."

    Good news here.Last time we had this event i remember doing few thousand runs and i only got max 2 or 3 of these and after that nothing.Thanks for fixing this.

    Lot of noise from the bots and exploits FAQ , but in fact only a few boters have been ban , i know some account that have usebot for more than 1 month non-stop not banned ( very sure source , its account's owner that told me) , many bugs exploiters still in game with 100k draken and full royall gems etccc , GOOG JOB BP , you still take your clients for trumpetts.
    When i see all you stole to pinata bug user , same if they used only a few , you are very pathetic and have any idea about what is justice and equality.

    Fortunately they are smart enough to tell the difference between bugs and abusers. I had multiple times of receiving the daily log in gift, even once yesterday, but I'm still here. In other news, the former #1 solo DK on Agathon isn't on the leaderboards anymore. Tsk, tsk, tsk. What a naughty DK, but at least we know the script did it's job.

    Prove it. And if you can prove it, send it to support. People always say garbage like this, but can never prove it.

    Cheaters should be dealt with, and harshly. This is a positive step in the right direction. I will take a wait and see approach. Since I play on Agathon, I feel like this could truly be a [EDIT] moment. A level playing field makes the game much more enjoyable across the board, and even builds good faith, making some of the other constant fails easier to tolerate.

    As i can see the community is not happy with this ban wave. I have suspected they have logs only for a limited time like 1-3 months so as it seems few of them have manage to get away with daily exploit and some of them with bot.
    Maybe this is the time to implement a cleaning system in order to clean the game at every patch.

    Just went through my list. Top 4 mages on grimmag rank not there anymore. And many others. What pisses me off is that I stoped doing ranking after the first season since I couldn't compete with one of those now banned.

    Some heavy abusers are still in the game though. Hope they will pick them up later on. Account trading should be also punished.

    But, good baby steps.

    Are my dailies now rolling at midnight???!!!


    Edit-- So confused. My team member's dailies are dropping in 13 hours. Mine are dropping in 8 hours. This according to the timer in the daily challenges tab. Anyone able to actually tell me when Agathon's dailies are dropping now?
