Hopefully, in the future, accounts are more thoroughly investigated before action is taken. Technology is great, but I think we can see here what happens when there isn't human input into the process.

For the sake of clarification, is it an exploit in your eyes, to dupe crystals and send them to alts via legacy gear?
This feature wasn't patched and it's still possible to do this.
I think we all want to know the answer to this.
Correct, using a Legacy Weapon to move a Color Crystal which you pulled down from your Collections UI is not an exploit. This is the case because there is no way to manipulate the system to allow for a large amount of credit gain as there was prior to 2.1.0b.

Excellent news, and a nice vindication to the folks that used this feature.
Thank you again for your response.

Awesome. Thanks.

I feel bad for all the people who got caught up in the mess

At least we don't have to worry about Legacy gear getting us all banned, though.

This is what happens when you don't use PTS and do proper testing. Nobody really even knew what the collections system was about until it launched because you were afraid people would be upset if they knew too much about the introduction of even more gambling content.

How many "bugs" or "regressions" does this make? Maybe stop being so excited to exploit gambling addicts and focus on proper design, development AND testing. Crazy, I know.

Thank you for the clarifications, and for making it clear that some of those who were banned were innocent. There has been damage done with this, make no mistake, but reparing the reputation of those harmed helps.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Yeah, the PTS needs more time out of the box. It needs to run in the fields with the other servers and grow into a real server!

Hey, if the people who were banned (as it sounds like you were?) are happy with the resolution, then, by definition it's fair compensation. I stand corrected if that's the case.

A generous position on their part IMO.
