    To be honest, I don't care about the bloodstones or the cats. All I want is e-mail confirmation as to whether or not I've been permabanned, so I can stop checking every day and go find something else to do with my time.

    Personal Opinion:



    I am sure everyone knows duplicated gems and cats, and they are flying around.
    PW chose to manually clean up the items instead of doing a 12 to 24 hours roll back, or even the combination of both.

    The left over cats and gems will still be remain on the server, depends on the amount of items that are not caught, the effect will be different.

    One advantage of having manually clean up by banning players:

    This will not effect players who did not duplicate items, some of them may have already got a great amount of exp or items from dungeons and quests, it will be a total disregard if they have done so.

    Disadvantages:

    So having banning a great amount of people at the same time , is that doing any good to the community? Some of the players may be innocent, some of them are guilty. I am sure this can cause a certain amount of players range from lv 40s to lv 60s quit the game.
    Is it more of an instant destruction on the motivation of FW, than a so-called GMs' "house cleaning"



    If PW were to choose rolling back, those people who do not have anything to do with the bugs can be rewarded with exp to cover their loses, cant they ?

    (I am sure it is not a full 12 to 24 hours lost for players unless they do not have a life and stay in front of the monitor clicking the mouse)

    No offense

    It wasn't a case of 12-24 hours, they'd have to put the servers almost 48 hours back.
    Additionally, it was the fisrt 2 days since the update, lots and lots of people were in the game, making much progress...
    Most importantly, there is no automatic way to insure that those who spent money in the game during those 2 days wouldn't lose their money for good...

    They had to choose between ruining it for some or for everyone, and between having to deal with lost time or lost money...

    Humm, that is true. It was a tough decision for them as well.
    According to ur explaination, it does sound better to just ban whoever touches achivement shop

    If you bought a cat from someone or won an auction containing one, your cat will not be taken away. This is to prevent honest players that simply purchased a pet they wanted from losing anything.

    Needless to say, there are going to a lot of cats left in circulation by the time this is all over. We aren't in the business of punishing the innocent, and the leftover cats will be direct evidence of this. But like I said earlier, we know who abused the system and who didn't. A reckoning will be had.

    With all do respect, nobody reaally deserves a Blue Cat unless they bought it from some one who ACTUALLY caught one. Or they caught it themselves.

    What are the people who ACTUALLY catch a blue cat going to think? People won't believe they actually caught one. The blue cats were supposed to represent Mastering ACV.

    I could not believe that the Blue cat was available in the token shop. I feel horrible for people who actually work their butts off for that ACV boss wanting it to be Green now, and it turning blue.

    Every time i see a blue cat it makes me think of system flaws and system abuse :c Those people just don't deserve the pets.

    I wanted a blue cat for a long time until this. Im just happy for my rightfully caught Green Cat. Instead of a blue cat that kinda is looked at as a cash shop pet. :c

    I make sure to run over every blue cat i see x_x; They are quite annoying. And if people actually bought a blue cat, That is their fault for wanting to feel like they caught something that has the value that the green cat has now. The blue cat has 0 value to me now.

    Except that touching the achievement shop does not mean you should've been banned. It was a legitimate shop that happened to be bugged.

    Not to mention that I have friends who were banned even though they didn't receive anything from the shop.

    FW is finished. The PWE management has done it again.

    I've never seen so many guildies quit the game AFTER a major expansion update.

    At least 1/5 of the population has quit and/or perm. banned from the game just 3 days after a major expansion. Give it two weeks, and another 1/4 will be gone.

    Time to find a new game.

    Well, my account has been banned, and yes, I admit clicking on that stupid cat link with the intention to take advantage of the glitch. I don't plan to sell those cats to anyone at all at first but if my main doesn't get unbanned, maybe i'll sell off all those cats if they don't get deleted so that i can start off with another character. FYI, the cats are still not removed. 23 cats fully incubated with 3 or 4 having a 2800+ rating. That should fetch a price good enough to finance a few more alts, right?

    (i'm just ranting now, return my main, and I promise to delete all those cats... nooot!!!)

    Don't they do that with all of their games ? Such as allowing players in battle of immortals to constantly account share which is a blatant abuse of the TOS, yet when the said players were reported with very valid proof, all they got was a 3 day temp ban.

    I would just like to know where we are going with all this ban stuff..
    I know my account was logged in 2 days ago while it was banned, and I sure would like to know if there has been anykind of progress on my account.
    I also know ppl who took multiple cats and also took alot of rep badges from the achievement shop, has been unbanned.
    When I was logged on by PW staff, they must have noticed I only had 2 cats both incubated. No gems, no badges.. just 2 cats..
    So the question is: where is the banning and unbanning based on?
