Silly dupers up to their silly shenanigans which may result in this silly game getting silly sunkens wiped silly. To those who have a collection of sunkens, will you be quitting if this actually happens? Is the economy doomed? (Hint: It already is)
I pray that my singular sunken doesn’t get wiped because that would be terrible.
Real talk, I don’t think it’ll be that big of a deal if we started adding a “dateGenerated” hidden variable for specific items. This would make it easier if Vetex could just wipe Items generated AFTER a specific period of the dupe. This way people get to actually keep items that were obtained legitamently and make it easier to find duped items. If 5+ sunken helms have the exact same time down to the minute, then they should be extremely suspect and up for deletion
I understand that AO has had a large target when it comes to exploiting, especially more than other games, but I don’t think wiping all sunkens will resolve anything. The problem would still be there, and entire new sunkens wil be duped. It is better to have the economy suffer than to have all players’ sunkens wiped, causing a large portion of players to quit. Vetex should find the issue, solve it, probably remove any items in the game from that specific player and other exploiters (if possible), and just keep it moving.
I’ve sneezed smarter moves than wiping Sunkens, or any item, really. It’s a “fix” that will last for less time than the Gizmondo, since all it takes is for one duper to get lucky with fishing or trading, find another duping method, and make all the Sunken items they want. I also hate anything to do with punishing people who got them legitimately.
I wouldn’t quit AO because of this but it would definitely leave a bad taste. Majority of the community spent huge amounts of time farming for this, wiping it just like that because of a few people would be very disrespectful towards our time.
