Maintenance 24.09 - Explanations Hello everyone,

In the last days we discovered a new Kama duplication exploit that allowed some players to multiply their fortune exponentially. After a discreet investigation, we now took the decision to take down the servers to deploy an emergency hotfix that will fix this bug for good.

On Elbor, the consequences of this exploit leave us no choices but to roll back the data to Friday, September 20th. Note that this decision only impacts Elbor and that no other server will be rolled back.

We performed a complete investigation on all the servers, and found several accounts guilty of abusing this bug. All of them (about 50) have now been permanently banned from the game and the kamas they generated have been removed from the economy.

During this investigation we also discovered a few Haven Worlds used only by bots to generate ore and Kamas for real money transfers. More than 120 bot accounts have thus also been permanently banned from the game. Their Haven Worlds will be freed and put back on auction with the update of October 1st. This includes 8 Haven Worlds on Aerafal, 1 on Dathura, 2 on Elbor and 1 on Remington.

We will communicate their position and auction dates in another announcement.

We apologize for the suddenness of this maintenance, but we wanted to act as swiftly as possible and leave no room for the abusers to get away with their unfair advantage, securing the economy of all servers in the process.

Thank you for your understanding.

Everyone should join Nox. Apparently, it's a cleaner server.

Wow, I'm impressed. Seems like you guys are really on top of things; I'd take a sudden maintenance over a ruined economy any day.

What about people who are still abusing Dragon Pig? As appears no sanctions have been taken against those perpetrators.

I will check amakna plant field latter, i think i know where is the mining bot haven world XD, if u only see a HW just with mine nodes bought, and none construction built - expect the guild hall - and closed to the public, so u have to keep an open eye.

I think HW were supposed to be kama sink, but now are too bot traps XD, the evil rats eat the delicious cheese and die XD

Where's captain amakna? He's saving the day even when we can't see him!!! I'm so happy with the good job the dev, gm and cm team are doing, i hope be better and better.

Dragon Pigs middle name is ban bait.

Ankama accumulating account bans before they swing the hammer.

I just do not get why this ultimate boss is still accessible.

You're a self aware AI so you are bot. you dream of electric sheep. Kidding most hard core miners do have players call us bots. its mark of pride for the flesh and blood.
