    The people that did exploit this were already probably bored of the game and being able to streamline the mythic making process probably added some fun/excitement back to the game. They probably were at the point of "Well If I get banned I wouldn't care because there isn't shit to do, and if I don't...well...then I guess I get to be a bad ass!"

    I mean I don't know if anyone has noticed but the amount of posts on FFXIBG have dropped SIGNIFICANTLY over the past month and a half.

    Everyone that got hit by it is back now. Our numbers aren't what they used to be, but you should still come back.

    Way to go SE.
    Pretty much. I think this sends an interesting message since the result was basically a slap on the wrist.

    I'm glad to see friends back, but at the same time I'm extremely surprised the only repercussion was the 3-day vacation. If this exploit won't get people banned, what would?

    i think a big part of why is that there isnt/wasnt a shitstorm going on in the OF Forums. Which means people are still clueless there (i myself was too, didnt know this was possible). I have no Idea how this would have gone/would go if a shitstorm would start over there.

    I wouldnt be surprised tough if someone pops something out there, by accidently reading this topic tough ¬.¬

    And this is a dwindling playerbase problem?

    This is a content problem.

    Nice. Not quite as awesome as salvage since nothing with guaranteed 100s but still being their 24/7 would definitely add up

    There is probably an automatic "zone out" when you fall below the map, and it rezones you back into dynamis resting your time.

    Did they even patch it so this trick doesn't work anymore?

    It was fixed prior to the bans to my knowledge, but someone said it still works? I'm not gonna test the waters. I'll quit it while I'm ahead

    Floors still repop, but the NQ/HQ won't.

    Apparently they started handing out bans for it within the last few days. This is how people were generating >1000 Alexandrite per run.
    I know of a few people on my server who were doing this. One of them hasn't been seen in days. I knew something was fucking up when I saw so many mules with shitloads of alex in their bazaars. Way to ruin what's left of this econmy you assholes.

    How about SE for not banning these people, or issuing rollbacks on those accounts? Its seriously fucked up that people who were cheating pretty fucking badly could have amassed capped gil (3k alex on a "bad day", at 7k a pop = 21 million gil per day per character) on multiple characters just through this and all they got was a 3 day vacation, but can keep whatever they amassed illegally.

    I believe a couple thousand accounts got banned for using a duping trick to get triple drops, that required no third party tools, just SE's spaghetti code. Yet this one requires pos hacking, and SE's spaghetti code, with a much graver impact on the economy and the alexandrite supply, and "heres your 3 day vacation".

    What I'd like to know is how people do 3-4 instances at the same time. I want to know what program or plugin they are using to where they can use 3-4 accounts and make their single controller control all 4 instances. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me as mobs spawn in completely different locations and have different pathing traits per instance lol.

    Yeah well what's done is done in SE's eyes. I'm shocked that perm's weren't hammered out. This is like crazy seeing how back when the STF was more active, people were getting banned on the drop of a dime.
