Thread: Clone Wars, The Exploit

    If you can safely remove ADKs, It might be in the best interest of the server to just remove them all together. Especially with the changes to decay rate that would need testing

    They're nothing but trouble.

    They're the one thing above all else that I wish that SOE had never implemented!

    Great news on this work though, well done team.

    While Im glad to see the crackdown, I bet more than a few people will rage quit when you delete things that they worked hard to save up for.

    Personally if I only lose 1 adk I will chalk it up to the test server, but if I get slammed, I know Im out untill 1.0.

    The fair players really get the dirty end of the stick on this one.

    Just wipe the server.

    Why wipe the server? This is actually a good way to test our tools and how to deal with such things in the future.

    Gotta love some of you guys. Barely play, do nothing but talk bad about the game and server but yet always seem to be rdy for forums PVP.

    Thank you for this giant step twords not only cleaning up basilisk some, but also getting counter measures rdy for 1.0.

    This scenario is exactly why Basilisk is the way it is. It is sooooo useful for testing new admin tools.
    I love the "economy" is out of whack to see how bad it can get.
    If people hate the current status of the server so much, we know we don't want to be there again and can use Basilisk as evidence and justification for changes to be made post 1.0
    The dev team has been using Basilisk to break SWG so we know its weaknesses and can help shore them up for the future.
    If you actually care about SWG, you'd recognize that wiping now is just a bad idea. So much is lost with a wipe, and I am not talking about character progression or items.

    That was SOEs decision. See server ideas forum.

    "Because its tainted beyond legitimacy."

    its a test/development server.... how do you define "legitimacy" for a test server?

    there are a lot of items that have been added to the game that shouldn't have ever been originally. It's mostly looted stuff, jabba scopes is a big one.

    Back in the first few weeks of pub 7 the exceptional/legendary drop rates were so highly accelerated that exceptionals were more common than most dot weapon rolls from high CL mobs.

    It’s a “test server” that’s served as its closest-to-a-live-version-were-going to get for how many years now?

    Retail MMO’s have lived and died in the time this “test server” has been up. The “1.0 soon!” Mantra has been chased for a decade.

    Stop drinking the kool aid. This “test server” is as close as we’re going to get.

    Also, how you are expected to “test” anything, when you fix some broke things, but allow significant amounts of other things to remain broke?

    A wipe has made sense for years, but out of stubbornness and misguided pride, it won’t happen. Even after 60,000 items are just confirmed as exploited. Bas had what.... 1,500 active players at its best? That’s 40 busted items per player if you look at it just at face value. And again, this has been going on for years.

    Oh, but ask my why I’m cynical and don’t play anymore....
