    “If someone accidentally leaves their door unlocked, it’s their fault I broke in and stole! They were asking for it!”

    this analogy would work if it weren't for the fact that Kabam literally told us to rerun the event, so you're wrong.
    Yes but the message we reviewed said shards were once per day. Reading comprehension is important.
    Now tell me this, how are you supposed to know that the event gives more shards unless you actually complete a second run? Like if they ban people for running it twice, that's just stupid because you couldn't possibly know. If you do like 10 runs then sure, but two is understandable.

    I'm sorry you weren't taught to read well.
    It seems you don't read very well. Zuko stated that you wouldn't know you were getting extra shards until you ran it twice and aknowledged if you ran it more than that you were liable.
    It says right there in the in-game mail, "shards can be gained only once per day". If you get them twice from the same quest, you know something is up. Running it more than that after the fact is exploiting. They won't ban someone from running it twice. They didn't last month. Use common sense here.
    Exactly my point. Zuko acknowledged that fact but you want to keep arguing. Textbook definition of a keyboard warrior,

    Kabam should start banning employees.
    Unreal that they can’t release content with out doing a couple runs themselves.

    They don’t play their own game!

    I take it you have never programmed a complex set of code in your life. Bugs happen. Other than simple hello world scripts you would be hard pressed to find a piece of code that has no bugs.
    Open up the game and run the path twice themselves. Bugged. Then stop/delay release of the content.

    I didn’t realize the hades quest dropped early and already did two runs so now I already have two keys. I think it’s a bug that allowed the quest to dropped early (I’m est time and did two rounds at 8:00am) the quest enabled me to do two runs and get keys both times please fix so people don’t get banned like last month for exploiting a bug and if need be take the keys off my account

    It’s intended for you to get as many keys as you wish, however only 5 will be useful per week and currently the quest is awarding 1500 monster shards per completion when it is supposed to be once per day.

    What other games have you played before? This isn't anything thats new in the gaming world. I bought the Avengers game when it came out. Want to know how many bugs and issues that were fixed in the first patch? Over 1000. Go google search EA's Madden 2020 or 2021, whichever is the latest version. Then report back and tell me who's doing a worse job.

    I noticed that if I rerun a difficulty on this new Hades side quest I get the same rewards. Is this a bug like last month or legit? Thanks

    I completed the Epic level earlier today in complete innocence. I came here to find out where the shards went. I’m glad that I didn’t do it twice, although the replay button did encourage me to. I genuinely don’t think I’ve done anything wrong.

    Did it three times... Didn’t know about there being a limit or anything until people in global started panicking, I checked forums and oh boy, I’m gonna get banned...
    Kabam please do something about upcoming Side quests...

    Bugs aren't the problem, its the lack of testing that's the issue ..... as a "programmer of complex code" you should know this

    I'm kinda temptated to do it twice just to confirm if its a bug for me too. Or should i do it once and wait for Kabam to give everybody who didnt do it twice shards for one run to be even? Edit: Plus please do it properly once, idk if its coders fault or testers, but do it properly.

    Mistakes happen, even when they seem unbelievable, it still happens. We all tolerate and accept these mistakes due to our love for the game. If you don’t, I would recommend finding another game.

    This is not right! I just found out that i will get banned for doing a quest! I gathered 15k of those lame shards which will probably give me a 4* ABOMINATION!
    My story ? I was happily grinding a quest that KABAM introduced until i got bored and started surfing YouTube AS USUAL!
    Among recommended i got a video from Kt1 saying that i shout NOT grind because it is a bug?
    A bug you say? I started investigating and i reached this point where i find out that because I WAS A HARD WORKING player, i will get banned one WEEK!
    What does a one week ban mean for me? A LOT! Considering this shards will 99.9% have a LAME reword, That I will not be able to grind my content AND! My alliance will have to play with (probably) TWO bg's!
    That is the reword i get for KABAM screwing up and blaming ME! The player!

    they should ban people who run in more than twice for a max of 3 days. It comes to a point where you should know that you aren’t supposed to get multiple keys but twice should not get a ban because it was literally impossible to know that you would get the rewards again

    calm down, they have not said they are banning anyone (yet). More than likely they will just remove the shards.

    5 a week?? Can we only use one a day with 2 days unable to use them?

    How many banned you for their mistake?

    Lots of people exploit glitches in games until they are patched.

    Are you really going to defend them for not picking up their own game and trying to run the path twice?! For the second month in a row!!!

    lol. Ok then

    That’s correct but it’s also not hard to test content to find said bugs and fix them before the community finds out and get punished for the errors in code.

    I don't come on the forum much, I do prefer to just play the game and live. But after this update and being able to replay the side quest over and over, I thought I'd come on for some info.

    So apparently there is a possibility of people getting banned if they have played the quests multiple times? Surely to the average player, who doesn't do homework about the events before they start, that is absolutely ridiculous to ban people for simple playing content that has been made available?

    I'd fully understand them reversing rewards and reimbursing energy spent, but to ban people for playing content they have made available is absolutely ridiculous to me.

    PS, I only did the quests once, but noticed there was nothing stopping me from re-doing it. I just assumed the rewards would be a one time thing anyway.
  • Bugmat78Bugmat78 Posts: 605 ★★★
    This is sh*t - not everyone comes to the forums. Y'all need to fix your bugs. if someone did it again by accident that's understandable - shouldn't be banned. But those who do it 3-30 times..that's different.

    Well...... The in-game message we all got said shards will only be given once a day. It was pretty clear.
  • What should I do if I have already run it again?? I won’t be doing it anymore but still

    I’m right there with you my man, got banned last month and if I get banned for running it twice This time it’ll be a month Long ban

    Wait haha seriously, you got banned for exploiting eq last month, so this month you see the exact same exploit... And decide to do it again?! LOL

    Dear Mods. If this thread gets deleted can I keep my insightfuls? This has been my most productive thread.
  • Urkel2Urkel2 Posts: 371 ★★
    I didnt exploit it but I think its pretty unfair that kabam throws out bans like there is no tomorrow because they cant seem to do their jobs right the first time! How about instead of handing out bans you start firing employees!
