We can probably agree that Huntgate did enough damage to the game and that we’re so ready to move on, right? Unfortunately it looks like the whole mess might extend into New Year. There are solid indications that the exploit is still very much active. Ever since the initial wave of bans players send isolated reports claiming that the devs never fully fixed the glitch. Now we’re convinced enough to report that this is indeed the case.
The Bug Was Never Fully Fixed
Our assumption is that the devs never got rid of the actual issue of targets getting stuck and Tarokka Cards not getting properly consumed. They only prevented players to use kill commands to enter the hunt zone prematurely. This obviously means that the glitch is indeed very much alive if somebody still figures out how to get in. And if some reports we received are true, there are still ways to do so. Now this won’t probably blow up like last time, but it’s worth mentioning that despite all the publicity it generated, the glitch is still not fixed.
More than that, PWE does apparently actively monitor activities and continues to ban players that use the glitch. Now we can start the whole discussion of who’s to blame again, but at the moment you definitely don’t want to get in touch with exploited Hunts at all. Because your first infraction might be your last. Of course it would be best if that goddamn exploit wouldn’t be possible any longer, you know? But at this point it would surprise us if it’ll happen before the holidays.
No Protection from the Game
Of course, most that currently still try the exploit probably do it fraudulently. But as long as the game pretends the situation is resolved when it’s clearly not, you can’t rule out innocents getting caught up in Huntgate. That’s why we think that players are aware of the situation. If you feel that someone in your hunt group only tries to do something suspicious, considers leaving the group immediately. You don’t want to complete a bugged Hunt or you risk a ban!
