A step in the right direction, for sure.

Since the apparent exploit has been fixed, can someone explain what the exploit was?

I bought and sold a couple of the new Clan variants, just to participate in the leaderboard for them. I definitely got less when I sold them shortly after the contest was over, compared to what I bought them for. IIRC, I did get like half of my money back, instead of the usual lower ratio for a sold mech, but I certainly didn't profit from it. (The Shadow Cat and the Gargoyle)

How were people profiting from buying/selling mechs? Was there one particular mech that was glitched or something?


During the sale some mechs were cheaper to buy than their actual sell value. Some people were just sitting there buying the MLX-G or the ACH-E and selling them over and over again and made millions of space bucks. You earned like 200-300k per mech.

And now they're broke... PGI removed all the C-Bills from the accounts of those who participated in this exploit. And by all I mean they have 0 C-Bills now.

See Snuggles' video on that matter.

A step in the right direction.

As for preorders, do people really find it fun buying that far ahead of time?

I am amazed PGI hasn't develped a two tier release system for new mechs. Why not develop brand new chassis of already released mechs but with different hardpoints/omnipods and announce them as flash sales every one/two months? Something to look forward to, and I think a lot of players would be open to spend say 5-10 bucks a pop for a mech with a 30% cbill bonus if they were announced then released quickly within a day or so of purchase. Wouldn't that be more exciting than just scrolling through maybees and whatif scenarios for preorder mechs 4 months in advance? The community really liked the new cbill variants that came out a while ago, and there are plenty more chassis that could use more variants. : D

There will be perma ban due to using price error for make money?

I am not seeing anything about any kind of ban in the announcement Posted Image
So you are probably safe on that count.

This table design looks awful for me. I had to say that.

Today is the day for the cougar to be set for Cbills. I was looking forward to this.

Do you know how hard it is to herd Mad Cats?

In Canada the day is still very young. Give 'em a few hours, usually it happens towards the end of their working day.

I just assumed it was an automated process, like when events start/end. Which would mean that at the time of this writing, it should have taken place 18.5 hours ago, as they use GMT for such. If someone needs to remember to press a button, that would explain much.
