    Dear players,

    There is an exploit in Battle Bay, where you can use a loophole in the guild system to gain guild tokens faster than intended. This has our full attention.
    We are working on a fix and will deploy it as soon as possible.
    As for items and currencies gained from using the exploit, that will be dealt with in due time.
    We will give you more details on this as as our work progresses.

    You care about your business but not about the 42000 tokens I lost right? Any update, ETA? Nothing! Fix that first!

    Just please do not do some sort of blanket rollback. I just paid a lot to evolve my Legendary Sniper and Railgun to T5s. So keep that in mind. Some of us do things the right way.

    THey should only be punished if they do it after the warning because to be honest it’s not our fault

    I totally agree with u,they must not put the blame to the players coz they only used an alternative strategy to farm tokens

    All those cheaters rocking their weapons with epic perks from exploit and mine isn't even equipped with rare ones completely. Why does railgun perk appear in shop so often?

    At first this game was pay 2 win. Some might say that this loophole made the game play 2 win.

    You can play the game for months without ever seeing an epic perk in the shop. And you can play like 10000 matches and still don't have enough gold to upgrade your ships and items. So the hopping is partly the developers fault as well. You can play this game several hours a day without seeing any progress at all, how is that fun? Players have used this hopping method because the devs themselves made this game almost impossible to progress.

    Have you guys seen how active this game has been since the update? That's because you could actually make some decent progress for a change.

    Imagine the amount of players battle bay will lose if they remove people's stuff... Less people playing means less income for them.

    Well just prevent anyone joining a guild during the rivalry from participating to the quests until the next rivalry.
    I think it's the most efficient solution.
    Oh, and don't forget to adapt quests so that guilds can actually complete them with their members and don't need other players ;-)

    Tons of gold, pieces, perks and pearls. Really unfair.

    If the exploit is one. Of those :

    1_ have 2 guilds, one with one member and the other with all, when the rivaling comes, all members of the main guild go for the second which will fight ghost guilds and win, next. Rivaling they invert or
    2_ create fake accounts so you can win quests easily, there's a easy way to fix that. Block any new members who joined the guild after the rivaling starts to score points in the quests. Easy. As. It sounds

    But i say the same as the others, the game is almost impossible to evolve as f2p, those rich dudes lile Bunta who paid to win get a lot of stuff as we get nothing. The epic perk price is umpayable for most and they rarely appear.

    Lol no. Exploiting is not the devs' fault, it's the fault of the people doing it. When something is clearly unintended, and you are gaining an amount of rewards that clearly is not normal, yet you keep doing it, you deserve a ban. A roll back would be mild punishment.

    When you abuse an obviously unintended flaw to give yourself an unfair advantage you should expect it to have consequences. Obviously they cant let cheaters keep thousands of pearls, countless epic perks, millions of gold and legendaries. You decided to bet on getting away with it, glad to see them take a stance against exploiters.

    Finally, glad to see some proper announcement. As others have said, it might take a lot of work but doing individual investigations instead of a large server rollback is the better choice. I too personally wouldn't want to be reset while playing fair this entire time.

    As for everyone else expecting to get away with it, shouldn't have exploited in the first place regardless of reason and hopefully you get a just punishment for blatant abuse.

    Finally! And thank you!
    (I also hope you realize that posting this message on Friday would have severely reduced both the problem and amount of salt in the community)
