IMC announced they will address a few rumors circulating the forum on the Developer's Blog.

 

IMC came across a post with a screenshot of a user owning two or three hundred million silver while they were working on recent issues related to Steam's payment system. Some of players commented that it was demotivating. The payment abuse and that screenshot have been reported to a certain Korean website as well and an article came out stating that Steam server has serious problems. Some players even say a server wipe is needed. Thus, many players are wondering if it is neccessary.

 

IMC has officially claimed it is not neccessary.

 

First of all, the screenshot is simply not true. IMC can look through their server database and figure out the actual amount of silver the account in question owns, what the user traded, and the movement of silver on each server. We can even identify which top 100 accounts possess the most silver. We can identify daily changes of total amount of silver. And IMC found user in the screenshot only owned less than a hundredth of the alleged amount.

 

Data in the game client can easily be altered due to the nature of MMORPGs. IMC announced that screenshot is also a result of such practice, and the change only appears on the user's own screen. This altered data doesn't get transmitted to the server that deals with monetary transaction, meaning the game's economy isn't affected.

 

Contrary to what some users pointed out, the TP obtained through transaction exploit is irrelevant to the silver increase in the game. Even if abusers purchase and sell Tokens using the TP they unfairly gained, it does not generate new silver. The silver simply moved from one account to another during the transaction. During those transactions, actually total amount silver decreases due to 10% market fee. This may have influenced silver's RMT value or Token-to-silver ratio, but we have confirmed that it did not affect the total amount of silver circulating the servers.

 

IMC GMs monitor the statistics every day. IMC claimed whenever they make systems related to trades, they make sure to check for possibilities of the damage they may do to the server's economy. And IMC are going to explain the bot problem and the report system they made to counter it in their next blog post. Thank you for your reading and we will continuely update the news.
