Regarding Repeat Quest Rewards Exploit [Clarification Added]

edited August 18 in News & Announcements
We have been made aware of an active bug that had the potential to be exploited in a manner that allows players to receive rewards they have not earned.

We have spent a considerable amount of time investigating the cause of the bug, and have now pushed a fix that will put a stop to this bug. This was not a situation that we could allow to continue and have addressed it as quickly as possible in order to ensure that nobody could gain an advantage in the game and tip the balance through the use of this exploit.

Now that the bug that was causing this issue has been rectified, we will be moving on to rectifying the mistakenly distributed rewards. All extra rewards that have been earned from abusing this exploit will be removed. If any resources have been used to Rank Up Champions, those actions will be reversed, and no Gold or Items used on those Champions will be returned. Players that egregiously abused this may find their accounts being temporarily, or permanently banned.

We want to reiterate that the use of exploits in the game is not okay. Exploitation of a bug, regardless of the situation can result in some sort of disciplinary action. These disciplinary actions can range from actions like the ones we are taking today, up to a lifetime ban. Exploiting bugs unbalances the game for players that do not use these exploits or are unaware of them.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding and patience while we worked to fix this issue.
