Exploit by visiting Town Leader!!

Post by Helfdane on Sat Oct 08, 2016 9:11 am

Cae, the town leader of Sarmiz, came into Spero and has the ability to raise our price of wood from 1b to 40b, then sold wood to us for a profit. THEN, he spammed our economic log in order to try and hide the deed!!

Why to admit your own mistake? It is easier to say others did it...

That log looks highly suspicious... you don't have anything more convincing to say than to accuse Helf of ripping himself off when you are on that log doing nonsensical things?

This kind of exploiting is insane and calls for action.  No clue why Cae would be able to manipulate things in Spero, but it would be impossible that he not realize that is an exploit, especially since he covered his tracks. :bad:   The event had sabotage built into it, but someone had to go around it and abuse a bug rather than taking what sabotage was avaliable them?  That's some pretty hardcore cheaty.

Basically for the event, townleaders were able to set prices for stuff the town would buy.  As 2nd in command I didn't have access to this, only Helf did.  But mistakingly, any town leader had access to the prices for each town.  Cae changed the price we would pay out for wood from 1 b to 40 b.  And then proceeded to sell hundreds of wood, at least 3-5 gold worth.

That's what is known.

Yeah, but a bug is only an exploit when someone chooses to abuse it.  Cae clearly chose to exploit... there is no discernible reason why he would bring hundreds of wood to Spero and try to change the prices in a town that is not his.

ha!

We'll just have to wait and see what the outcome is. If any..

Only townleaders were able to change the prizes of the goods and (sadly) due a bug townleaders could change the prizes of any town they were visiting. Cae Indru found this out and used it to the benefit of Sarmiz. This obviously wasn't part of the plan!


However Cae Indru and I talked this out. I've decided to give Cae Indru another chance as clearly he didn't fully grasp the possible consequences of his actions. Spero will be fully refunded for those "donated" goods and will keep the goods.
