Okay I understand the ban on exploiters to an extent based on the situation but in this case, If you did this last week itself, people (or at least me) would not have any issue. But if a similar bug is introduced again, you and your team are accountable more than the players. Did you ban everyone last week? No. You took the easy way out and just roll back server because you did not want to spend time and resources going through all the logs. So everyone who exploited it gets away and the whole server suffers. Now this week because it was identified early and the logs are less you want to punish anyone who exploited it. Where is the justice for the players from last week who lost valuable stuff or time and effort? Do you know how many people decided to leave game because of the rollback last week?
Whoever was responsible for both the bugs from the low level worker who did the code all the way till his manager who okay it for deployment, make them sit and go through logs and ban everyone from last week too. That will teach them a lesson on how to write code and test it before deploying. But no, you would not do that because that is too much work. Let's just roll back instead and take the easy shortcut.
"Its up to me now to educate those who made the scripts on how not to let this happen again. I have to document what happened, report it, and take responsibility for it."
Okay so that was not done last week? Why did it happen again? I can be understanding/forgiving the first time around that **** happens and people can do mistakes but again and again? within a week? Is this some kind of a joke to warpportal? I get it, you and most people at WP are working hard and I respect that but that does not mean we are supposed to ignore the mistakes you make that too same ones week after week.
Rollback was necessary back then due to the massive impact it had on the game, this time it wasn't as severe as before therefore it was not necessary to do a roll back, no point on banning the players for the previous incident because everything was rolled back meaning that its like it never happened in the first place, since this time there wasn't a roll back, some form of punishment needs to be done for those who abused the bug intentionally
I hope ppl would stop abusing bugs and report them instead because the fair players have to pay for the actions of careless greedy players when things get too hot
