    This is player entrapment for sure. You tell us to grind with in game mail. Then post on forums that anyone who grinds will be banned.

    How about you send in-game

    They didn’t say they would ban anyone, what you saw a was a photoshop from a troll who hates you and wants to laugh at you.

    What is my fault in this if the bug is in the game

    Is your fault don't know the T.O.S. and don't read the announcements in/out game
    It was written in the announcement to grind as much as you can.So this is not the player's problem.This is Kabam's problem

    you didn't read it right
  • This is dumb. I have a brain injury. When I do a map and it says replay I replay. I havnt had time to read all the bloody changes and mistakes Kabaam is having. I use this game as cognitive rehab to help me recover. Im not looking to have to read forums for hours to be able to help my injury recover. Shame on you if you ban people for this. After last month I believed there was no way that Karam was negligent enough to allow the same issue to repeat itself. The people who keep messing up the programing should be banned, not the players enjoying your game.

    Just finished once for Legendary, then I found bug happened again....

    Won’t do it twice till the bug gets fixed~

    Nevertheless, the shards don’t show anywhere in the account after completing a run. No shops to exchange souls or shards either. So we basically couldn’t get any benefits from the bugs.

    I believe Kabam will just reset everything later today and no ban wave will happen.

    Very misleading

    How is it misleading?
    I believe because the message says grind to your dark hearts content to gain lost souls and skeleton keys.

    But then it goes active and where only supposed to run it once.

    Once does not equal grind to your hearts content, but that is just my understanding of the English language
    who said you are supposed to only run it once? They literally stated you can run it as much as you want, there are only 2 issues
    1) it is out earlier than they stated
    2) it is dropping unlimited monster crystal shards, it should only drop it once.

    The mail was clear.
    The terms of service say you can't run it more than once.

    More than once is awarding extra rewards. That is called a bug. According to the terms of service exploiting a bug can get you banned. So if you run it more than once you risk a ban.
    incorrect, the TOS says you cannot exploit bugs, they stated this one you can run over and over again. The only time you are in trouble for exploiting the bug is once you realize there is a bug, which is why they set the threashold for bans for more then 2x, the first one you cannot know, the second one you didnt know until the end.

    This isn't even the normal time for an event to be released. That should have been the first red flag for you to check if there are any bugs with the event.

    I'm pretty sure anyone that ran the event last month more than twice was banned and had extra rewards taken away.

    If I get banned for doing the side quest twice, I will ask refund of every single coin I've ever spend in this game...

    You can ask all you want.. the answer will still be.. NO..

    Not sure about october quest but you might get banned for spamming
  • AdamBrewAdamBrew Posts: 30
    I’m super bummed/stressed about this.

    I was relying on the “run to your dark heart’s content” for the limbo quests.

    Did the legendary 3x and epic 2x before I ran out of energy - all while thinking that I’m being savvy with my energy going for the side quest instead of how I normally spend it.

    Hopefully my inventory can just be adjusted for any over-granted rewards. I’ve put too much time and energy and money into this game to be okay with getting banned for a mistake like this.

    Whatever. Vent over.

    Okay you win. 2 runs won't get you banned.

    But 3 can. Cause that is such a massive difference.

    Oh and 2 does not equal grind to your hearts content. Since by your own admission 3 runs can get you in trouble.

    You don't run it more than once because it's giving shards each time. If it wasn't giving shards everytime, run it all you want as that's how it's supposed to be. The shards are the issue, not how many times you've run it. Seeing in that message that it gives shards once daily and you run it 20 times and get shards each time. 2+2= you know you were doing something wrong.

    There is no set threshold and any such thing is based on their discretion for individual instances.

    It is a MASSIVE DIFFERNCE. In one case you dont know of a problem, in the other case you do.

    Also I am talking about in a general circumstance. In this case it is unlikely they will ban anyone, because the email said you can run it over and over again.

    I don’t think you will get banned, because you won’t get any benefits from this bug at this moment (no way for you to exchange shards and you can’t even see the shards in your inventory!)

    Those extra shards will possibly be taken away from your account later today. That’s it.

    Well that message is getting more circulation than anything Kabam has said (if they’ve said anything), so maybe Kabam should finish their coffee and get to work on clarifying stuff.
    Idioms, I like them. A lie can travel half way around the world before the truth has a chance to even get its pants on. Seems super relevant to your take here.

    You actually advised us to “grind until our dark hearts content”. So we do and now you want to ban? In case you are not aware, you can not spend the shards anywhere yet, so there is no advantage. So take the shards and leave the sound and keys and continue on. No bans needed. This is on you kabam, own your mistake.

    They have not said they were banning anyone. JFC.
    They have actually, although that post may be deleted now.


    It would be ridiculous to ban players when we were encouraged to grind. If they do, they can kiss my (mediocre) $2000/year investment into the game goodbye forever.
    where did they say this?
    @Lormif this image is doing the rounds. Not sure you’ll find the post anymore though. Miike still needs his morning coffee before confirming such things 😂

    Edit: retracted. I think it’s a fake image
    That’s a photoshop, lmfao. 1) not his profile pic and 2) you can see he hasn’t logged in recently.
    Considering you can check the ingame mail with that exact wording.. i'd guess it's not a fake image..
  • DemonzfyreDemonzfyre Posts: 14,694 ★★★★★

    Hope so.

    I once gave you the benefit of the doubt for being anything other than a **** poster but this day you have proven yourself.
    I love you too.
  • Dont see how kabam can threaten, or actually, ban for being unable to do their own job correctly. Its been over 2 months of white squares in global chat, if they cant fix that what makes them think they could release functioning content every month. Oh, wait. They cant. Learn to do your job before banning people for completing a quest you put in the game.
