Regarding the recent GV Glitch abuse, the developers have investigated the issue, and all the characters involved in the abuse of the glitch.
It has been investigated how many runs certain players have done abusing the glitch, and how much they have profited from it.
They have also been spectated and caught abusing said glitch. There is also video proof and screenshots.
Some of the players have actually not only end up reporting the glitch (otherwise we'd still be clueless of it, and they would have been abusing it still), but also helped recreate it so the developers could work on a fix for it.
Therefore, said players who have apologized, admitted and stopped abusing it have gotten a reduced penalty compared to others who didn't mention it to any staff members and intended to keep it as a secret and keep profiting from abusing it.
In light of these events, and now that the glitch is finally fixed, most of the offenders have gotten a 14 day ban. Others have gotten a 3 day ban, and others no punishment. This decision was made solely by the developers.
Hopefully this will be an eye-opener for anyone else who thinks about exploiting certain major glitches.
Regarding the FC glitch, and TT glitches that have always been in the game, they're well known by us, and pretty much everyone that plays the game, and they're accepted as part of the game.
This GV Glitch is a major glitch, that produces huge amount of coins, experience and tome fragments, while avoiding fighting the ~900 mobs that should be fought in order to get it.
