    Clone Wars, The Exploit... Item cleanup.

    I've been working hard on getting the cleanup ready to run. However, I am toast, been smashing the keyboard since 4:30 am Eastern Time. My experience tells me the worst time to hit a big button like this one is at the end of 12 grueling hours of keyboard smashing.

    With that in mind, I will circle back in the morning, I will run a couple more test runs before I let it run against Basilisk.

    If testing continues going well in the morning, then my guess is I'll hit the big button before 9 am tomorrow (Sunday, 8/16/2020).

    Every character will get an email of deleted items, again they might be slightly off since it's tough to be perfect, if you've moved an item or perhaps your house is owned by an alt, the email might go to the other character.

    Per our previous announcement, this will not delete houses, tents, city installations to avoid unintended side effects. These objects, however, will have their deeds locked as notrade forever.

    Will this also remove the no-trade flag from unaffected items (i.e. ADK'd items)?

    Finally.

    Now we need to put all our efforts into recovery as communities. This Clone War divided the player base but I'm sure we are strong enough to move on.

    The emails can't be perfect, the system was not designed for the sort of dupes we're dealing with here.

    Basilisk is rebooting, this should be the end of the bulk of related changes.

    We are still investigating a handful of players and a handful of "interesting" items that might get deleted but those will be small and one-off actions.

    To be clear this was not perfect, it could not detect dupes from years ago, most of the data came from the latest duper's own items they left in game, some dupes were detected by seeing a loot-only item that had 22 copies of it from 2014 to now etc.

    The primary goal is to get monitoring in place, which is now in place and is being used to watch for more of these as we go forward.

    With this behind us we can focus on 1.0 and throwing a big burn-the-server down party for Basilisk.

    PS: ADK's and other items are still notrade for a bit, these are the primary tools of RMT'ers that sell credits for money. We will look at options such as making them account bound.

    FYI Some items remain noTrade to avoid complications (Houses, Tents, etc.) and will stay that way.

    Please contact support if you see something strange still showing Red notrade text, I tried to be super cautious about what I let the system delete in bulk, that said it was still 5,657 items.

    I suspect some factory crates are broken because the items in the crate were deleted but the crate wasn't, I'll try and circle back on those over the next couple of days.

    The ADKs attached to flagged items were deleted together with those items. It appears this didn't work as intended.
