Dissapointed about server closure and possible rollback

So yet again we all have to suffer because of some people taking advantage of these bugs ...when are people gonna learn to report bugs instead of exploiting them,working together as a community to make this game even better than it already is ...but unfortunately there actions resulted in all the servers being shutdown ,affecting thousands of honest players who would like to play today,possibly on there only off day from work or studies ....and on top of that there is a possible rollback to follow ,affecting all players who enjoyed the latest Saharash island patch by gaining exp or that special item from the new mobs...the whole situation is really upsetting ..with both parties to blame ,obviously the people exploiting this bug need to be expelled from this community ,but ankama is also to blame partly for allowing this bug to exist ...but people make mistakes i understand this ,and alot goes into making such a great game as Wakfu..so i can imagine its hard to discover these bugs ,and well done on realizing people are exploiting this bug, its just a pity that all your customers/subscribers have to suffer for itwacko ... bottom line is.. I really enjoy playing this game and i wish people would stop exploiting bugs and ruining it for the rest of us !

What do you guys think about all of this ?

PS : Sabi could you let us know about the progress of your investigation and possible time servers will become available again please wink 
First Ankama intervention
Hi everyone!

I'm the ES Comunity Manager for WAKFU so, pleas forgiveme for my english.

First of all, you have to know that, if Sabi hasn't already answered to this thread it's because she lives on the West Coast (Pacific time) so al this problem arrived while she was sleeping (as any normal human beening does). As soon as she will be back at work, she'll explains you everything in detail.

I've just updated the original thread with more info but, what I cant tell you by now, is that the Remington server is not one of the most affected.

Although we can't still say with no doub if a rollback wil or will not be necessary four your server, at least you know that you are on the "better half" by now.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and be sure that we will study Remingont's case on detail so your community will recieve the attention nedded.

Imagine if they're selling these items, DP sets, kamas, relics, wa sets woboots GM eps for currency outside of kamas

then it becomes the happiness of a thousand people you hate or thousands of dollars
That was one very long sentence.

I agree, it's shameful. Life is full of cheaters. MMO's are no different. The innocent must continuously pay.
Sabi, knowing if they are going to increment the time of respect quests is also welcome... mine will expire while im at work, i woke up earlier for nothing...
Bored from paying money and can't playing because of some iop-brains... <_<

Also really angry! angry 
I just wonder what were they thinking? They didn't know they are gonna get catch and there may be a rollback because of them? "Oh, yes, im gonna duplicate this ultra rare item 10 times, noone will notice!".
I think the common sense approach is don't play after an update or play very little.

With every new update there is the possibility of bugs and exploits which is going to be the case for a long time. This is not something new so we need to learn from the past.

When there is a new update and if we get a respec I make sure if its working to grab that on all characters.

I would also suggest do not buy/sell or trade, do anything in the HW etc within a 72 hour window of an update and do not do anything meaningful. By meaningful I mean something if you are to be rolled back that would cause you great frustration.

I also too understand the temptation of dropping the first items (when the item is at the highest value) and enjoying all the other content that is adding however for the sake of my own sanity I refrain myself.

We're talking about a player who no longer cares about the game. Suppose he's sitting in astrub selling them for real money, because he hates this game and found an easy way to make 1000's of dollars off a dishonest and powerhungry playerbase.

I'm sorry for bad englih ... or something like that.. cause i'm not english but, the things you are telling to us can be read as "Don't play for about 72hrs after an update ... also if you paid for that..."
I agree with you that this can be better then great frustration but in that case want a 3 days free of charge from ankama after each update.

I also think i'll quit game if they rollback too much. In the last days i farm ingame-jobs and also a decent amount of drops (like solomonk fragment). It costs a lot of hours to me and, honestly, i don't want to repeat again that thing. I hope they can punish only the lamers....

Someone needs to review a certain related thread.
the common sense says that the game should be bug-less and each update would be a holiday instead of apocalypse
I will be so pissed if there is a rollback. Yesterday I just spent the whole day getting resources for my haven world's already ridiculous upgrade for the level 2 guild hall, so there will be no possible way to compensate for that.

Well I hope the culprits are banned alongside their alts.. If this results in a rollback I'm curious to what the compensation will be.
