A word on priest's door-pull and the in-game calendar
Hey everyone, I wanted to briefly touch on two things:
1. Priest's Door-Pull (and exploits/cheating in general).
2. In-Game Calendar.
EME will continue to enforce bans/suspensions on cheaters and exploiters, just as we always have. No changes have been made to our internal policies recently, aside from the in-game calendar exploit. Door-Pull is a very old exploit; in the end the original fix did not block the issue, but instead limited its utility. This left some areas of the game susceptible to it, such as Corsairs' Stronghold, which we accepted. Since that time we have not explicitly allowed the exploit, but we also have not banned nor suspended players for abusing it. Door-Pull has been living in a grey area. We ask that our Player Council and EME Partners refrain from using any cheat/exploit, regardless of its ban/suspend policy, which lead to the conversation between myself and one of our Partners that has been making the rounds.
So, to be crystal clear, we will not ban/suspend players for using Priest's Door-Pull. EME will discuss our options again with Bluehole, as it has been many years since this was initially resolved. Should anything change in regards to our policy surrounding this issue we will make it known prior to the change going into effect.
On the topic of in-game calendar, this feature will remain disabled until the underlying exploit is resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience.
