At the rate game companies and MMOs are getting hit by security issues, I'm surprised gold farmers haven't found a way to spam my tabletop D&D sessions.

@Rialle

The gold farmers put 0 points into charisma and thus fail any rolls for persuasion.

Maybe the gold sellers have moved on to just stealing credit card numbers instead. =/

Of course naturally I am kidding Beau ;)

But seriously people need to stop with the hacking. I am sure that Mabinogi will not be down too long because Min Kim is a pretty smart guy and will figure out how to deal with the problem quickly.

But seriously, people need to start writing more secure software.

Not going to argue with that because I agree with you totally. But I am still baffled by all these idiots that feel the need to hack a site or create a computer virus. These idiots are immoral and need to get a life.

If it were just RMT and botting, GMS would have been offline as well ages ago.

Have you SEEN the gold spammers in the free markets?!

Love the picture you picked to go with the article!

But yeah after reading a thread on another forum about the dearth of decent sandboxes, where someone recommended checking out Mabinogi, I thought I'd give it a look. Great timing!!

I don't see why Nexon America doesn't just permanently shut down Mabinogi. They've been dropping the ball constantly with updates and game-ruining bugs that take forever to get fixed. And now they had to take down the game for an unknown amount of time because the game can still be hacked to horrible extents.

Way to go, Nexon. You really started off the new year strong. /sarcasm

I dont understand how you can take down a game for an unknown period of time. What about people who legitimately bought items on the cash shop and what not? Now they dont get to enjoy their game because Nexon can't seem to handle whats happening. I'm thinking refunds should be expected. Seriously perturbed by this.....

They'll probably toss more free service or some free NX or some sort of special event to tide the players over again.

Well at least they're being serious about it. It's good they're taking it down instead of letting the situation get WORSE.
