Recent exploit discovered with Factional Warfare Loyalty Points
As you might have seen from the news today we, ‘made an adjustment to the average price of some items in order to curb a situation whereby the average price of an item could be manipulated in order to create a disparity between the value of an item in ISK and its value in Loyalty Point payouts.’ It has come to light in this thread that certain players had been manipulating price differentials to amass vast amounts of Loyalty Points. CCP Sreegs and Team Security are in the process of carrying out an investigation and we will publish the findings in a Dev Blog at the earliest opportunity.
It should be noted that this investigation may take several days as it is important to ensure that we are thorough with our findings. We do not prejudge investigations and cannot comment on what any potential remediation may entail until we have determined the entire scope of the problem.
