    This is a really impressive list. You fixed probably everything that should've been fixed. Good job!

    I wonder if that meso exploit was related to a certain fashion book vol 1... >,~
    Never tried it, but I can't think of any other way you could unintentionally earn mesos in Royal Park.

    Punishment? When? Will Nexon Let Abusers Win Founder Pack? Does Nexon allow bug abusers in their games? If that's the case, I'll abuse on the next bug, since theres no punishment at all.

    well dang...can't be mad about this. but theres 2 things not on this list ''some times the green leaf potion heal over time does not heal at all'' and then ''cart mount sometimes make you lose health if you use a skill while on the mount'' but yeah progress is progress I guess.

    oh yeah...1 complaint, much rather 500 merets than 5 fireworks butttttt that's just me.

    I think the problem with this particular bug is that bc of how widespread it was, it is very difficult to pinpoint every single player who abused the borb bug, even with a reporting system. You would want to punish everyone who caused the bug; not just a group of them, and you don't want to punish the players in the top of the ladder who didn't abuse the bug with something like a rank reset.

    That being said, I do understand the frustration of having players who abused the bug getting large rewards (such as a $100 Founders Pack). I believe that a solution to this issue could be by resetting the ladder but reimbursing everyone with Battle Royale/Mushking coins (whatever that currency is called) equal to their rank before the reset. That way, players who abused the bug wouldn't have a huge advantage when it comes to founders pack, and players who have worked hard to get their ranks will still get some form of reward out of their effort (ex: for buying those special mounts or buying clothes at the markets).

    Stance on teaming-up in solo mode?

    This can be a very vague thing to address. I believe you that in your statement you are referring to players who are actively seeking out players to defeat while not targetting team members. However, I believe that you can also apply the teaming-up strategy to pacifists in solo, since they aim to not attack other players to win. Personally, pacifists in solo are kinda awkward, bc there are a few who will get offended that you are playing the game by trying to defeat enemies, and it is a mess trying to figure out who is and who isn't a pacifist in solo.

    Resetting the ladder is not fair to legit players.(But may be a good way to make it more balanced) The fact that a bug like this happened an so many used it should have some kind of demonstration of power to warn future abusers so many of the top 200 players are abusers some tested it and some Abused it its disheartening to hear that honest and integrity is not rewarded but disloyalty and exploitation is welcomed.

    Thanks for the fixes! especially the orb thing and the invisible bomb AoE and mount speed. I didn't wanna have to give up my fox just because cart is faster. Free hairstyle too?! Wow so generous :) especially since most of the nice hairstyles cost like 3 dollars or more in merets
