While I know Cryptic has a policy against sharing specific details, it would be a real boost to the moral of the community if we had some sort of report on the outcomes of these investigations into exploits. Right now, there's very little confidence in how these things are being handle, and doubts as to how much impact Cryptic can really have on repairing the damage done to the economy, which in turn only hurts the legitimate players in this game.
No one here is asking for details, but as an example from another MMO, here's how they report details as they deal with RMT violations:http://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/team-security-now-with-100-percent-more-anti-rmt/
A quote from that article:
Much like with the initial reintroduction of botting bans many of you have noticed that a wonderful event occurred last Friday. Prior to Fanfest and again at Fanfest I promised that the security team would be looking into RMT as well as botting. Last Friday saw the first results of that work. I'm not going to get into confirming or denying who was involved as per policy and as much as I love to write I'm just going to break down the results of the first action into bullet points.
- Around 105 accounts with direct ties to RMT (Real Money Trade) operations banned permanently
- Between 1-3 trillion ISK in assets siezed permanently
- Around 500 billion ISK in RMT transactions reversed
It would be nice if Cryptic would share high level information, like the above with the community. While we may not work for Cryptic or Neverwinter, your loyal players have just as much of a stake in the game (a game we really enjoy), and it'd be nice to have some reassurance and confidence that these exploits are indeed be addressed, and the damage caused by the is being mitigated to the best of the developer's ability.
