Any exploit credits that are going to be removed will have already been so.
It's not as if you can hide the credits offline or off-server, whichever character/account has the credits they are stored on a BW server somewhere.
The 7 day bans are expiring, so as people log in they will be checking to see if their credits are safe or not. If they are, then they are now as good as clean.

I think they can re-open any investigation if they find evidence it is worth to do so.

I am curious about this too. especially if a single gtn transaction successfully safes the credits for the exploiter. And of course what the punishment is of those account cought using the ban.

If it is soft (non perm ban) the next exploit will be used by even more players... That reminds me of the joke company trion and archeage.

They should perhaps do a final post what was done and what to expect in the future if someone decides to go exploiting again.

Bioware, I'd like an answer why I got an email send to me saying I exploited it. I DID NOT exploit. All I did was buy 50 chairs, unlock them all (I am pretty sure you can find this out by checking) and then found out I already had one so I sold it back.

Are you seriously going to say I exploited this? For ONE FRIGGIN CHAIR decoration? I never bought any more chairs on that server or on any other, which I am pretty sure you can check as well. Come on, its 100 credits... are you seriously so narrow minded?

Hey everyone,

I wanted to give an update on the actions being taken against players who took advantage of the Temple Chair exploit.

The following actions, in varying combinations, are being levied against exploiting accounts:
- Warnings
- 7 Day Suspensions
- Removal of all credits on the account
- Permanent suspension

We are also going to continue our analysis, and may take additional actions. We are looking to wrap up all the final actions soon.

Thanks to everyone who did not participate in this exploit, and those who reported its existence to us!

does this include credits obtained by "legal" means? if so, I think I would rather be permanently banned haha

If no further information and action about this are taken, one would think next time can use an exploit instead of being there standing, resisting temptation to get easy credits while a bunch of cheaters become rich and get the best items ingame, and get away with it. So yeah this issue is still alive and some of us are still waiting to know more about it.
Ahhh makes sense, I suppose ill stick around to find out info as well...

I'd hope so, that's a nice punishment. Though accounts with a lot of credits will feel it worse than casual players who barely have a million credits.
What happened to items/unlocks bought with credits? Are they removed as well?

I am concerned that there's no mention of alt accounts. I've seen quite a few level 10 players on the vendor so this was definitely a thing. Hopefully, they're able to track this and take action on the main accounts as well.
