The people who were banned werent just doing normal game things. They were cheating the game and its economy.

when people do that they make the game harder for those of us that follow the rules that dont go around exploting every bug in game to our advantage

Cheaters deserve to be punished. All they ever do is harm an in game economy and to defend them is beyond me

What hey are doing forces the whole economy to become unbalanced and in some cases make it so those of us that dont cheat end up not being able to even use the economy

I have seen this in wow where because of gold farmes the price of simple green items goes from 5 gold to 1000 gold.

Believe me cheaters only hurt the game u play and deserver to be banned.

It's no use. Some people see that Bioware did something, and instantly go "Action on Bioware's part? They must be WRONG!".

And no amount of pointing to the first page, and quoting the document Bioware itself posted will convince them to actually read it and use critical thinking skills. This topic wouldn't have people coming in here and posting to say that Bioware is evil and banning "the common player" 43 pages later if the majority of the posters actually bothered to read the first post.

Half of the people in this topic can't even seem to read through the document long enough to realize just who got what type of ban or warning before going "OMG WHY U HATE NORMAL PLAYERS BIOWARE!?".

I say... place some high level mobs in areas you don't want low level newbies to exploit stuff

Also they were not just looting or camping the loot boxes, they were exploiting the game mechanics to flip the planet's faction very quickly back an forth so all the chests would respawn every flip.

Because we want to go get datacrons we didn't get yet and help friends with their heroics?

It's posts like this that make it hard to control my temper. You are describing normal player activities, and then trying to fit it into the description of exploitative activities. IT DOESN'T WORK!

People were banned for exploiting, no MMO company is going to tell you in great detail why they actioned peoples accounts and describe step by step what exploit they used to you.

You're acting like Bioware was wrong in removing gold buyers and people who exploited. Stop throwing a tantrum because people got banned for abusing the game.

Why does it matter ? some peoples goal is to get rich in an MMO. That's their way to play the game. Who are you to judge them ?

if pple were using critical thinking or even common sense you wouldnt have the noobish questions in this game hell yes its a new game but if you take the time to look for maybe 5 minutes or less you will find everything you are having dumb questions about such as i closed my item reward ud think ud see something flashing in ur top right hand corner of ur screen and think to click it among other things.
