Reset Lumpy Koala (in Public Record)

For flagrantly exploiting the get-more-money-from-disenchant-than-its-nw bug while it lasted. He disenchanted, re-enchanted, disenchanted around 80 times.

Ouch!
How much did he make off of it?

Sickone April 3 2008 3:47 PM EDT

Too late for a "told you so" or "saw it coming a mile away", I guess...
*sigh*

It is every citizen's solemn final duty to go into the tanks ;)
His was a bit earlier :p

"Godsend (1)"

Ouch.

what is disenchanted/reenchanted?
and if someone take advantage of it by doing it like 3-5 times, would you still get reset/fined?

Little Anthony April 3 2008 4:00 PM EDT

i think he BS it 100% NW and dis enchanted for more money and repeat.
He would be shocked when he log back in.

Abuse the system and you pay the price.

That was one painful lesson... ouch, indeed.

Right after this too:

Lumpy Koala, 11:51 AM EDT Godsend defeated King of Pain (Battle Royale) after 13 rounds of combat

Oh LK. *sigh*

drudge April 3 2008 4:41 PM EDT

50k sent to lumpy to start back up with! dont quit!

Godpanda April 3 2008 9:53 PM EDT

This is quite sad...

AdminNightStrike April 3 2008 9:56 PM EDT

Wait, what? I took this opportunity to disenchant my HOC (had it at +9... trying to bring it down to fight encumbrance). Were we not supposed to use the feature yet? Do I have to re-enchant it up to +9?

shamefully, reluctantly even, I giggle

Sickone April 3 2008 10:04 PM EDT

The "disenchant" feature was bugged at the very start, and it was giving MORE cash than NW difference. I believe I was the only one to report it as bugged before it was (very soon) fixed.

By repeatedly disenchanting/re-enchanting you could theoretically pile up huge amounts of CB$ out of nowhere.
He did that repeatedly.
By failing to report the bug, while at the same time blatantly exploiting it, he earned himself a shiny reset (which pretty much equals to a ban, since I doubt he plans to restart it all from scratch).

AdminNightStrike April 3 2008 10:05 PM EDT

I didn't realize that. I guess I missed your message. I can say that I didn't do any re-enchanting, and I just disenchanted I think one item (the HOC). I don't know how much I got back, but it was somewhere under half a mil.

xDanELx April 3 2008 10:31 PM EDT

I don't think Jon would mind one or two as it. Its the taking advantage of a bug that gets his goat.
