Kwismas island.

So i play on rosal, And kwismas island is still open. And im just wondering if they made it a permanent area instead of just for christmas, (Which i dont fully understand why they would because its kwismas island) Although im not complaining, Because i can try to get the slayhound.

First Ankama intervention

If anyone out there even considers hassling Tdude over this, I will not be pleased.

Rosal, not cool. I thought we were bros.

Kwismas Island is turned off. I will ponder a proper punishment.

Confirmed.



I'm willing to say that people on Rosal knew about this and didn't bother to say anything so they could get the slayhounds leveled, Almost like how people on Rushu knew about Sakai Island being opened early and didn't say anything about it either. x3

Edit : I found a few people on the character pages that had 25 February 2012 à 08:56:34, -character name- defeated Father Kwismas. But you can't ever be sure that they weren't just doing souls.

It's been open since Christmas but it wasn't a secret. My guild knew and there were many other people there too, but today you can't stay on it for some reason. I keep getting zapped off.

It may not have been a secret, but ... I didn't know about it. sad

Kept in the dark about this all this time...?

/Forever alone...

But transferring a character over now would seem moot - as no doubt the team will correct this matter...

And with this confirmation, we all know what is coming now: Sanctions because of the abuse of a game mechanic that gave players an advantage.

Edited because some people take player speculation as fact.

dont waste your time. in fact, what's going to happen is a nearly 2 month long rollback of every friggin server thanks to people like you that failed to report a bug of this magnitude. in fact, i wouldnt be surprised if the people who have been on kwismas island all this time also get a heavy sanction at the same time. either way it goes, you're going to have a lot of angry people coming after you.

You know... I don't think that spreading ridiculous and completely unfounded rumors like that is helping anyone.

I wouldn't be surprised if the abusers received some type of warning or sanction... But a 2 month rollback for the entire game is the most unrealistic idea I've ever heard. No entity in their right mind time would punish the entire game for something like this. This is Ankama's philosophy regarding this type of thing (see the second half of the post).
(I wanted to link the thread about the Peki abusers getting personal rollbacks, but I couldn't find it. That would have been so much more relevant!)

It is not spreading rumors and I am highly insulted that you would even insinuate such a thing. I am stating what COULD happen. Whether it happens or not has yet to be addressed but DON'T go around saying I'm rumor mongering.

Yes, those who did exploit such a thing should be punished per the Terms and Conditions, however this is VERY different than the old item duplications that took place. How can you prove who was on Kwismas Island and who wasn't? How can you prove who was doing what, where, and when if they did not go around fighting monsters that updated their logs? Does Ankama keep track of where every character is and was at which times and what they did? If they do, great since it will be simple to just punish the offenders. If they do not, then the whole server will be hit to be fair as they can not prove who did what and when.

Void, you're an extremely respectable, and very recognizable member of these forums. With such recognition comes responsibility.

Your post comes off as extremely speculative. Considering the sensitivity of rollbacks in general, and the fact that people actually do care about what you post, it is not out of the question that people will take your words and possibly interpret them as informed facts. That's what I'm trying to point out. I'm not trying to offend you.

Understood and sorry for the response I made. It just came across that way.

To add a disclaimer then: I only believe that it could happen, but I don't know if it will happen or not.

This has happened before. About two years ago with Rushu, a lot of a found out Sakai island was accessible via a bug, we abused it. A lot of us (and I don't me us as me ^^) got in trouble, I even know of some people that got banned. I'm sure this is the same thing. People get yelled at for abusing it, some will probably get banned for making a Profit off of it.

I wonder if they found another sanction on this than banning players.

I hope they do ban players for it. Teach people to be honest for a change.

I talked to a friend on Rosal yesterday (I'm not giving out names).

From what I was told, this was a pretty known thing. People got told to turn off their character pages if they were going to farm, and not to fight unsoulable mobs so they put anything that does show up as "I just did a soul"

I really hope Ankama does something about this, that's pretty unfair that Rosal is probably rolling around in 90 Slayhounds.

Pretty much this, you did the right thing questioning it. If you hadn't posted this I bet they would have had it for a few more months without anyone outside of tidal realizing it. The only thing is I feel bad for you, you're going to be like Rosal public enemy number one sad
