Over the weekend an exploit was found and used by some accounts to gain a large amount of Watts.
The Watts exploit was the result of a server push that went up last Thursday as part of a series of server optimizations. Unfortunately this exploit was the result of both a client and a server bug working in tandem. The server bug was patched late Saturday, which has resolved the actual exploit. The visual glitch remains but will be fixed next client. Some players state they believe the exploit started much earlier, but we have data that indicates that it did not start prior to Thursday, only a visual bug that we can confirm does exist and has for a while.
Clearly, this unfair advantage is damaging to the community and we strongly discourage the use of exploits to gain or disrupt the game or experience for other players.
To resolve this issue we are reviewing the accounts that used this exploit with great excess and will be banning these accounts for 5 days. Along with the ban, we will be rolling back the account to it's status as of Thursday prior to the server push. Any purchases made during this time will be added again or otherwise reimbursed to the account (so no purchases will be lost during the rollback).
The bans will commence today. For any account specific questions or concerns, please contact our support team and they will review your account further for you.
