Order and Chaos Online player distributes GM powers, havoc ensues

    
22

Imagine this scenario: An MMO player somehow gains access to a “DevBox,” a special set of tools that GMs and devs can use to manipulate the game world (such as spawn gold, move people around, etc.). Not only does the player start to go wild with this DevBox, but he or she makes copies of it and starts widely distributing these powers to other players, who also freely experiment with them.

That nightmare became reality this past week in Gameloft’s mobile title Order and Chaos Online. Through these duplicated DevBoxes, players have flooded the world with ill-gotten goods and have been screwing around with others’ game experience.

Gameloft performed an emergency hotfix yesterday to remove the DevBox exploit and vowed to investigate the matter. Players have reported that some who have messed with these tools have been banned.

ihatevnecks Greaterdivinity When in doubt, go with “shenanigans”.  Connotatively, it can go either way.

Plus it’s damn fun to say.

Greaterdivinity Yeah, I think the title should be “hilarity ensues” rather than havoc.

Armsbend paragonlostinspace  True that.  Given the choice between playing this game as ‘intended’ and using the Devbox thing, my response would be to not play the game.  There’s no such torment as these terrible titles, except maybe certain ‘musical’ performances forced into ones ears.

Hey, when they said chaos they were… apparently just joking.

paragonlostinspace the only reason to play a gameloft game would be to fuck with the game, the gms and the developers.

They “should” be banned, they know it’s wrong before and went ahead and went crazy with it. Stupid.
