a blame for a glitch is on the devs, not the players,

just so you know, you could reproduce the bug and not even know it exists

in fact, once I think it happened to me as I could've sworn my stones weren't consumed. but I didn't bother to test it.

As it so happens, bank robberies:
  • Are against law
  • Cause direct loss of wealth from a victom

Yet as far as I can tell, glitch exploits
  • Are not against the Terms of Use
  • Do not cause the direct loss of any wealth from any party


Feel free to prove me wrong though? And don't say "oh, the prices get changed around," because GGG loves a free market economy and prices change all the time in a free market economy.

I scanned through the Terms of Use btw, and the closest we get is this passage:

ya this is pretty shitty when your one of the thousands of users that cant get a key drop. I really wonder if the average person with a lvl 90 will ever be disappointed by a turd unique. Meanwhile lucky aholes got to exploit this to get basically whatever they want.

So ya...#banhammerparty

abusing instance crash rollbacks is definitely bannable and against their tos
so how do people even discover this stuff in the first place? Beta testing?Data mining? Im not a coder or have any idea of the interworkings of a game such as this. How the hell does one just naturally come across stuff like this.

This kinda feels like we are all gerbils that get our daily coin to go get our daily food pellet. You, the fool, take your coin,get your pellet and you are done. This smart guy, he takes his coin and taps it on the wall, says a prayer to the prince of jupiter and boom he gets 3000 pellets..... feelsbadman

You think the sea is salty because the beach never waves back?
Why is it always people the least affected who cry the most about things like this?
