I just disintegrated everything there was and didn't expect it to be a bug but a feature. This was already visible in your livestreams so I expected that this is how the system works: 10 CXP per item, and if you get 8 or 16 items, it's 80 or 160 CXP.
I think they mean setting the amount to disintegrate to higher than the amount you had. So if you had 8 Jawa Junk and set it to disintegrate 16, it would give you 160 cxp instead of 80 cxp.

Thank you,

1. Why would anyone at 600 crafting "KEEP" JAWA scraps? so how is an exploit when the JAWA Peddlers don't even stock Grade 10 materials! Your team brought this upon itself, you can not punish anyone selling back crap in the command crates because they have no use.

2. You have multiple comments on the forums regarding bugged quests, mounts, companions lagging miles behind and yet your team focus on something trivial.

If anyone gets punished for this exploit I am sure you will understand any and all backlash from the community, and I say this as someone that keeps my JAWA scraps because I am insane enough to think at some point someone sat in your office will allow Grade 10 to appear in them.
I have a bad feeling about this

So now that it has been established you can make changes to the GC CXP system fairly quickly- can we please a change to the player's benefit?
We had today's path to fix an exploit
Saturdays patch to make it less rewarding to kill any gold mob.
Can next patch be an improvement in favor of the players? Maybe keeping GC the way it is but re-introducing token drops on ops bosses?
the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Peace out.

Ah ok, thanks. I'm guessing the same thing. If that was possible, it would definitely qualify for an exploit. Especially since items can now stack to 9999, imagine the CXP you could earn via such an exploit...

Any chance you will be fixing the STUCK IN COMBAT BUG that's been here since the beginning?

Great

Multiple reports of xp not being given out properly on kotfe chapters
Master Ranos alert not popping for DvL legendary players

And you take the servers down for a cxp glitch that was your doing and are threading to sanction those who did it

Pathetic

As there seems to be some confusion, let me clarify.

The bug was exploitable by entering a higher number in the Disintegration pop up than you had available in your stack of items. e.g. You had 10 Jawa Junk available, and entered 1000 in the pop up.

If you simply Disintegrated the whole stack you had without using a high number than you had available, you did not encounter the bug, and therefore did not exploit.

Sorry for any confusion!
