I'm confused. The article says "Frogster was very careful not to say which class was the overall most popular one" but tells us "Mages are an incredibly popular class, with with 2.2 million characters" out of a total of 6,657,370. Isn't the Mage pretty obviously the overall most popular class?

Pshaw. The other 4 million + are scouts. /golfclap

Did they put in there how many diamonds Frogster took away illegally after customers purchased them, or how many accounts they banned afterwards when people did chargebacks when diamonds they paid for disappeared?

You could always read the RoM forums - there's a locked 23 page thread along with two threads from company employees which fill out everything.

But hey, I'm just a person on the Interwebz. Don't mind me! :)

Totally unrelated to this post, but... "Jazz-hands!"

I too can confirm, 'fraudster' has made the decision to take back diamonds from paying customers 'as an act to enable server economies'. 10 days in and still no response to tickets submitted..
bitter much..damn straight i am, pay for a something to have it taken back as it was a 'glitch' in the system as they never meant to advertise diamonds at that price...a six hour glitch, seriously... yes im venting here as posts just get deleted or locked on the official forums

Yes, Frogster did go into people's accounts and remove the cash shop currency they purchased.

They had a diamond sale, but the diamond bonus was miscalculated at roughly 500% instead of 150%. I guess tons of people jumped on it, because the purchase page said for $20 you got about 2500 diamonds instead of the normal 500, for example. (A mount costs 200 diamonds).

It was disastrous PR, and probably illegal. But these things are still mirky in online entertainment. If a bricks and mortar store sold you something at the wrong price, and then came into your home to take it back, they'd probably be arrested.

This game has had a long-running history of cash-shop screw ups, interesting to see they are still doing the bait & switch on people.

Hint - this won't be the last time this happens.
