GET LAID? just saying while everyone is posting asking when this is gonna be back on there's so much stuff u COULD be doing else where, the staff is not reading half of whats posted anyway so stop being impatient and just GOTO BED, im just saying no one cares what anyones saying if us players are gonna get anything from the down time its a fixes economy, thats that, honestly its all i can ask for from the makers, ive played many games where players screw the economy and it blows. there company is losing money by people not being able to play at this time, while u sit there and get pissed off at them for something A PLAYER CAUSED, just saying use ur brain and stop being so self centered while these people work their asses off to get the game back to the way it should be, so THEY can make money. use ur brains, dont be so ignorant all the time.

Dearest Beta Testers and Bravest Adventures,
In the dark hours of this Sunday morning an in-game bug was discovered and taken advantage of by a very small group of villainous Nashers intent on exploiting Neverwinters Open Beta Gateway and Auction House systems for unearned Astral Diamonds.
Thanks in no small part to the efforts of our continually amazing Beta community, we were able to quickly identify the exploit and the perpetrators. Once identified, we took immediate action, calling in the entire development and publishing teams to lock down the Neverwinter OBT as we sought out a solution.
Rest assured, the issue has been corrected and we have taken appropriate action against all players who took advantage of the bug, including but not limited to enforcing permanent bans.
Sadly, the damage to the economy was done.
Rather than let the malicious efforts of a few unsavory players linger and continually impact the games economy and balance as we progress through these later stages of Open Beta, we have made the extremely difficult decision to rollback Neverwinter to a time shortly before the abuse and exploitation began.
This means that roughly seven hours of progress made between 5:20 AM and 12:20 PM Pacific Time will be lost to all players. For that, we do sincerely apologize.
Following an extensive QA check, Neverwinter will begin again later this evening, with servers open for play before midnight Pacific Time. We hope to have them available sooner, and will continue to post updates on the forums and other channels.
When the servers do come back up, a few systems will not be active: the Auction House and the Astral Diamond exchange. When the servers are back up and running, well still be examining these features and preparing some resolutions.
Any attempt to use the Astral Diamond exchange will give an error message. The Auction House, however, wont give an error -- it simply will fail to post the item. This is the known behavior, and were working to bring these systems back up as soon as possible.
As a token of our appreciation for you, the community, and all that youve done for the game throughout these days of Beta, we will be sending a thank-you gift to players and opening ourselves up on the forums and various other channels to answer any and all questions we can.
For more exact details on the rollback and other efforts related to it, please see our comprehensive forum FAQ.
With sincerest thanks for the continued support and feedback,
Your Neverwinter Team

Kinda sad that more and more MMOs are only about end game... I miss the focus being on the leveling.

AMEN, Stuff Happens even in non Beta... It's only a game.
BTW, I was thinking about either 10,000,000 AD for every player so everyone is on the same page, or a little bottle of Neverwinter Brand KY Jelly. The economy is screwed so either make AD worthless to everyone, or make it hurt a little less.

So basically I lose like 6-8 hours of progression thanks to some dumbasses who couldn't earn their AD legit? Nice. Every legit player should get some kind of compensation for this. But, We won't. So we'll just continue playing.

So rather then do a full wipe that would fix this you are going to let tons of people with there ill gotten AD get away. Oh I'm sorry it's a small number, never mind that most of them did this who knows how many times and moved all of the AD over to alt accounts that chances are you haven't found.
Well it was fun but this game is over.
