just in case you not aware.

An exploit, in video games, is the use of a bug or design flaw by a player to their advantage in a manner not intended by the game's designers.
So, what about the tens of thousands of other people who are casual gamers who took slicing in good faith? Will you be the one to decide who loses money and who gets to keep theirs.

Or should we just take all money away from those characters who have slicing as a skill. Better yet, we should track every single AH purchase made with slicing money and and confiscate that too.

Also, I think you are confused about what an actual bug or design flaw is. Slicing worked exactly the way they wanted it to at the time of launch. It then became aparent that they had not balanced it properly so they then made the adjustment. It was not broken, a bug or an exploit.

Other than that, I agreed with everything you said

I'm not a slicer, but I'm guessing they mix in a bit of direct, world map slicing, which is free.

Sending the companion on missions costs more than what the lockboxes provide. Augments cannot be sold in the auction house, or if you manage to sell it you get less than what the mission cost. So I'm really puzzled by all this.

My slicing is around 160 now and I've only lost money on it.
Only send people on missions where the yield is abundant, bountiful or rich. Rich is top priority.

Slicing has been broken for quite some time, since before launch. People let them know about it in beta, and yes, something that wrong is, indeed 'broken'.

One or two missions giving the same, more, or less than before the patch doesn't really say much.

I'd been keeping stats of the slicing missions I'd run. I've just split the spreadsheet I've been using, and will continue to keep stats on the missions I run after the patch. As long as I don't lose money, it doesn't hurt to have one of my alts continuing to do so.

For the curious, here's the stats I'd gathered pre-patch:
Code:
                            Num             Avg     Cred/   Avg
                            Runs    Class   Net     Min     %Profit

Plug the Leak               12      6       128     4       9%
The Azure Databanks         9       6       240     7       16%
Spy Droid                   3       4       236     14      35%
A Test of Intelligence      1       6       2,882   20      93%

Missing Probes              3       4       330     25      51%

No you haven't. You have NEVER seen anyone banned for playing a profession or skill-up the way it was intended and get banned for it. This is not/was not an exploit. You are naive for thinking it is.
