A few days ago, after discovering multiple repeated failures, New World had to temporarily shut down the in-game economy. Players can basically create a number of extremely valuable items, such as trophies (providing bonus game end-game accessories), and even gold coins in the game.
Hmm: The economy is back, and Amazon Games has not dealt with those who took advantage of this or earlier loopholes. Developer Blog The post posted by the community manager Luxendra wrote: “Bad actors have discovered an error that allows players to copy coins and resources in the game through data packet manipulation-similar attacks against different game systems have also been used in houses recently.
“For these vulnerabilities, we together permanently ban more than 1,200 players, remove their items from the economy, and cancel their trading post lists. Our first pass on November 2 The perpetrators took decisive action to permanently ban the worst account criminals and eliminate more than 80% of the value of the deceived coins and items from the economy.”
The post continues to apologize to the vast majority of non-repeated participants who have been affected by the downtime and massive influx of the economy. “It took us some time to unlock and determine where the items and coins will stay, but as of November 15th, we are happy to report that we have permanently banned 460 additional players from participating in original transactions or updated housing development activities. Passed In doing so, we are able to remove 98% of the remaining deceived items and coins in the game. The remaining small amount of deceived items is the result of the player accidentally discovering the deceived problem but not taking the exploitative action, and will not be banned.”
Amazon Games also investigated how deep the impact of the exploit is and believes that advanced equipment has not “significantly increased.” The developer stated that it is still studying the list of items involved in housing development and is preparing to use a permanent hammer in due course. “Exploits will not be tolerated, and penalties can and will include permanent bans on players who use them.”
The New World community has some complaints about Amazon Games’ initial response time: before taking action, there are some videos about these vulnerabilities and many posts on the official forum. In other words, the speed is fast, and then the work can be completed correctly. Amazon Games may observe how it communicates with players who try to warn it about these things, but when it takes action, it does so in a comprehensive manner. Although this is of course an MMO, we are likely to report another failure tomorrow.
The post finally promised to take further retaliatory action when Amazon Games is processing everything that happened: “Although it will take some time to investigate and trace the source of the scammed items, our telemetry technology will track all these transactions, so please rest assured that we can And will find all the bad actors.” So don’t be a bad actor: go out and kill some robots.
