The Death Star Strikes, Thousands of Credit Spammers Banned

The Death Star Strikes, Thousands of Credit Spammers Banned - MMORPG.com

The Death Star has sent its lethal beam into thousands of Star Wars: The Old Republic accounts determined to be credit selling accounts and simultaneously sealed up a promotion  loophole that seemed to be aiding those making real-world transactions for in-game credits.

With today's maintenance we acted on a few different initiatives to help curb the in-game chat and mail spam of credit sellers. Some examples of what was done today include:

  • Banning of thousands of credit selling accounts.
  • Closing a loophole in an existing promotion, that allowed credit sellers to quickly and easily make accounts which could send you in-game mail and access the fleet.
  • Made adjustments to some existing automated functions to better catch credit sellers.
  • And more... (we don't want to reveal everything we are doing to the credit sellers)

Keep in mind that when it comes to catching credit sellers, as we make adjustments, so do they. It is a constant game of cat and mouse, but it is one that we will continue to focus on aggressively. For this reason, it is important that you continue to always report these spammers and credit sellers as you see them. I know sometimes it seems like we aren't taking action, but I promise that your reports are critical in our ability to find and take action against credit sellers.

Check out the Star Wars: The Old Republic forum to see how the action has been received by the community.
