Trove has been down since the crack of dawn thanks to an economy-breaking dupe exploit
“Yes, we will be compensating players for this downtime,” Trion tweeted. “However, all focus is on getting the economy cleaned up, so the details will be worked out after it has been completed.”
Trion hasn’t definitively posted what exactly the bug was, but as MOP tipster Tanek pointed out, players have some pretty good guesses: It looks as if was some sort of extreme duping related issue that saw miscreants sharing the wealth via community chests, which brought the player market to a screeching halt as the value of everything went bonkers with bajillions of currency flooding the game world. Players were anticipating a rollback too, but perhaps the extended downtime will be enough to remove the ill-gotten currencies without disrupting honest players further.
