Console General Discussion: The Console Diamond Glitch needs handled properly(trouble in Vesporax)
I dont know about the other Xbox one servers or PS4, but the Vesporax server trade broker has been COMPLETELY destroyed due to the two top guilds primarily abusing a huge glitch that gave many players millions upon millions of gold, and NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT!! HELLO??? The only place this is being discussed in area chat in Highwatch, where one guild(Filthy Casuals) is launching a delfection campaign by taking screenshots threatening to run to "Cobalt Dragon on discord" with harassment claims. No one has harassed anyone other that to call our their cheating in Highwatch area chat. The major issue isnt even that so many abused this glitch(it started when Gunner came out apparently you could someone glitch the gunner diamond boxes to give you unlimited diamonds and emeralds which if true also will be trouble when the gear revamp comes out as they have a dragons horde worth of gold and jewels now), the issue is that they bought out pretty much the ENTIRE trade broker and reset the prices on everything 2-3 times higher (200g for tier 10, 300g tier 11, 200 spellbind costing 17k, 2500 for one semi enigmatic, etc) they put up large buywalls which when the newer players see the prices will instantly quit. I was in this guild through a merge until I discovered this the other day and immediately left. Im not sure about the other servers, but the guilds entire defense for not getting banned is that "other people did it and the games population is too low for them to ban us". This can all be easily proven but I'm personally waiting to see what, if anything, is done. I know a few that have done this glitch post here, and its amazing to see the hamstering and backpedaling happening in game chat. I have never seen anything like this go unpunished in a game where so much of it is based around a healthy economy plus real money purchases.
oh for transparency, in game I am Skourge, and my GT is EternalScourge. Paging @Denommenator @KitTeaCup @CobaltDragon I pray you arent just taking the word of people taking one sided no context screenshots in highwatch as evidence of this, as many of the ones trying to reach out to you are the ones who were involved. I had to say something.

Seriously? At a loss for words, yet not surprised at all.
Console General Discussion#4 Ippiki07/12/2018, 10:52 PM
Thanks for posting it all over the forum (you should not have even hinted at the method) given I’m sure it works on both versions, on every server. And those affected items will still be around on many players’ accounts.


Delete the hints at the method from your post NOW.

I already guessed how it is most likely done. The item is bugged in other words in a significant way but *please* for the sake of every other server, can you delete these hints from your post.
@Vellum yep i just found out the people involved were great about keeping quiet until myself and others caught wind. they keep threatening go message cobalt to accuse us of harassment if we talked to get us kicked off the game. even had one player threaten to come after me in real life(if he tries ill shoot him)
Console General Discussion#6 Ippiki07/12/2018, 11:06 PM
Can you please delete these hints from your first post?
Pardon? the glitch isnt active anymore so its no worry @Ippiki however the damage is far from over
Console General Discussion#8 Ippiki07/12/2018, 11:19 PM
Are you absolutely, 100% positive this is the case?

I still have one of these items on my husband’s account and if I find this works on PS4, I’m most likely quitting.
@Ippiki youre acting just like the guildies I thought we legit; trying to muzzle me. im not trying to share how to do a glitch to my knowledge you cant anymore the poin t is the game is ruined for many unless the people involved get banned. I didnt buy spellbind boxes with real money only to see others get 20 mill off a glitch sorry.
Console General Discussion#10 3A5A6FTPXH07/12/2018, 11:21 PM
@Ippiki I dont know as I dont actuallyt know how the glitch worked it involved making a 65 gunner and a second gunner and duping the diamond boxes somehow. im sorry if you misunderstand my intent, but I am very upset regarding all this. Many players are trust me.
Console General Discussion#11 Ippiki07/12/2018, 11:24 PM
I don’t think a forum full of morons who’ll *immediately* try to do exactly this glitch is a good place to be sharing even a hint of how a game ruining glitch works.

You should be taking this to customer support.

If you don’t know it was patched you need to delete all this info now because otherwise people will use and abuse it and every server is screwed.

Do you realize we’ll have server transfer in future, right?
Console General Discussion#12 3A5A6FTPXH07/12/2018, 11:57 PM
@Ippiki the attention needs made because ive had these cheaters all mass reporting me to deflect from themselves and everyone not involved on the server is livid.
Console General Discussion#13 Emyooo07/13/2018, 02:08 AM
This guy was part of my guild insinuated that we took part in this glitch (which we didn’t) but I agree it definitely destroyed our market however it’s seems action was taken hours ago and those guilty received gold wipes and inventory wipes aswell as bans although he likes to point fingers the funny thing is filthy Casuals is alive and well lol could the gms please take this post down it is defamation of character and harrasment at this point and to my knowledge the forums are highly against direct name shaming correct? Ty for your time in advance.
Console General Discussion#14 Emyooo07/13/2018, 02:10 AM
@CobaltDragon
Console General Discussion#15 3A5A6FTPXH07/13/2018, 03:35 AM
LMAO what a surprise. why do you all run to Cobalt like hes in your guild? you do realize youre not special and everyone in your guild including you and your main officers admitted doing the glitch. OH also look more claims of harassment because the players that play the game fairly dont appreciate what you all have done.
Console General Discussion#16 3A5A6FTPXH07/13/2018, 03:37 AM
i wont name specific people but its HILARIOUS you coming here and literally lying about not doing it. I was in party chat with you all when it was admitted. your account history doesnt lie. maybe en masse cares maybe they dont. but if they do your account history doesnt lie. I cant stand cheaters.
Console General Discussion#17 Assaults07/13/2018, 04:42 AM
Enmasse has stated in the discord that customer support is looking into the issue so it has been noticed. I think this is a pretty complicated situation though because of how far the gems from these boxes have permeated the economy.
Console General Discussion#18 3A5A6FTPXH07/13/2018, 04:46 AM
@Assaults exactly and the only recompense possible is banning those who either did it or helped launder the gems. They must have the data. Nothing can be done about the market, but an example needs to be made. I spent some real money and I might be inclined to charge back over this and let them ban me if nothings done about this.
Console General Discussion#19 Emyooo07/13/2018, 05:14 AM
You realize they handed out bans right? And that I can with EASE log in and play Tera at this very moment. You’re violtaing forum rules by shaming directly and blasting certain individuals via the forum for boasting the rules so much you don’t seem to follow them. It in fact is defamation by definition and harrasment that you not only felt the need to spew your opinion as fact in hw but now here. I have no problem if they look through my account history actually they were on my account two days ago and if I did do this glitch why did my request to have items switched over for me not turn into punitive action? The answer is I didn’t glitch you just have personal vendetta that won’t be satiated until this holy crusade/witch hunt your on is responded to I for one will not allow you to slander us further.
Console General Discussion#20 3A5A6FTPXH07/13/2018, 05:47 AM
Dude...what? your hyperbole is off the charts. I havent slandered anyone nor named any names other that the guild(along with infamous) who was doing the glitch. They havent banned anyone yet, thats nonsense. I still see everyone who did the glitch in game. You may get away with it or you might not, but I did my part to try to let others know what happened(you especially have tried to shut me up about this(but i never dropped any names you just outed yourself).
Console General Discussion#21 Ippiki07/13/2018, 07:18 AM
I’m so bloody annoyed that I got my ambush made this weekend largely from farmed mats and *not* using the broker except for caprin horns, most of which were farmed anyway (intercede purchases.)

There is frankly only one way to deal with this now that seems fair, given this has gone on too long.

Locate all servers where this glitch was performed. I figured out the glitch from what you posted. Thanks. i wish I had discovered it on day one, if I had it would be gone by now and a rollback would have been initiated. I don’t think it can be done again because no new (bugged item) can be generated right now - I think so anyway. You’re still extremely irresponsible for posting the method here. Why is this item not bind on pickup - god knows.

Delete *all money* from the servers affected.

Give all players a cursory amount equal to the average each character owned prior to the bug.

Ban all players involved. Delete everything from their inventory.

My husband says “this is a bad idea, if they do that I will lose 600k.”

Well you know, it’s a bit of a shame isn’t it. If they don’t do something, I quit. I guess this means we both quit.

So yeah either he loses 600k or I lose a +14 ambush weapon that I farmed 99% from drops. But a rollback is way, way too late to initiate. Thank you for not reporting this ON WEEK ONE OF LAUNCH OF THIS ITEM.

I know these smaller companies can’t afford to do anything about stuff like this and it usually leaves you with a bugged economy and a ruined game. Ruined because it affects the difficulty level, everyone on the server ends up cash rich from selling farmed items they brokered to the cheats. Anything that can be bought with gold from in-game shops is now rendered dirt cheap.

History lesson from 10 years prior:

So this happened on Phantasy Star Universe (an online action based hack and slash, sound familiar?) 2 weeks into the launch of the PC version. PC version was hackable via manipulating packet data. A bunch of cheaters stood in the main area of town and handed out 1 million gold to anyone who wanted it for a solid day. This was in-game terrorism because they were doing this due to being *mad at Sega for favoring the Japanese version of the game.* fuc.king despicable, selfish nerds.

I went out that day. I bought an x-box 360.

My husband (just an in-game friend at the time) went out same day on the other side of the literal planet and bought an x-box 360.

We transferred to the 360 version, built our characters back up from scratch.

There was no rollback. There was no fix. Pc version was forever ruined. The game was dependent on mana bought with in-game items. Pc players could spam infinite mana. Pc players could spam infinite healing items, rendering all character based healing redundant. Imagine wanting to play a healer role on that version of the game. Have fun because you’re now useless.

I met my husband basically because a bunch of dimwitted idiotic loons like you wrecked a video game and we made a pledge to transfer to a non-wrecked version. I don’t know how far this relationship would have gone if it was *not* bound by the joint purchase of a 360 that day.

So thanks I guess, you moron.

Thanks for the money I no doubt have to spend on my PC this week.


Console General Discussion#22 3A5A6FTPXH07/13/2018, 11:35 AM
@Ippiki I understand your frustration; however, given the harassment ive received and you can see yourself in the above response the lengths they are going to cover up that they were involved...how can you blame me for posting regarding this? You said yourself it cant be done anymore so no harm no foul. I would like to think you are happy I brought this to your attention.
I say don't delete the hints lol. MIght aswell make the problem even worse if it's the only way to bring it to light and get enmasse and bluehole to do their damned job haha.
Console General Discussion#24 3A5A6FTPXH07/14/2018, 02:40 AM
@PremieresFinale well I definitely agree with the sentiment haha. But my intention wasn't to give any "hints" but mainly to bring awareness so that the bad actors involved get punished.
This went from, "There's an issue" which is rightly justified to speak about - and was already spoken about on the official Discord many times over by the GMs, and even banned some players, while removing entire gold and inventories from other players to rectify the situation.

All the way to arguing amongst each other and calling one another names.

The main topic in hand is the gold issue, yes? It's already been spoken about in great length on Discord and even one of the Producers said actions were being taken, but would not discuss what actions or how things would be handled. Which is normal.

So, this whole thing is a little too much but, perhaps you guys didn't know.

Anyways, I hope this will ease your mind a little?
delete the forum post and send it as a support ticket instead what are u doing?
Console General Discussion#27 Fysts07/14/2018, 09:18 PM
Lol Vesporax was not the most popular server before this fiasco happened. Pretty much no population last couple days . Lol used to get lag when I ported to highwatch but not anymore. Seen a total of 5 toons including my own in highwatch . Come Monday during prime time hours will know for sure if the server is dead or not . LMAO just goes to show quantity over quality is not always the best business model when you start losing all your customers.

あんたはサイコパスだろうね。

EMEの情報までの「最高なパス」が持っている人だっていう意味があるね。

僕も持っているよ。

あのdiscordで色々読んだがアイドントギッブアファック。






Oh no I wrote nonsense because I have worked 12 hours a day all week because eme hit us with a big “hey guys double drop tomorrow” on like, Thursday afternoon and I delayed a bunch of contracted work that I had to make deadlines on.

Come back on Thursday find out about this.

Really great and really [filtered] cool.

I mean I know it is “first world problems” but next time how bout you tell us in advance or or or:

Actually make a certain box “bind on equip” or maybe just maybe make your game recognize that if you delete a character then the next one you make is not the first ever on your account?

And yes, that;s the way the glitch worked. It lasted all throughout gunner leveling event (a full week.) it was never patched, but it no longer works because you can no longer get a gunner leveling box on lol. ‘Your first gunner.”

So make a bazillion level 1s, take them to level 2, get box, put in bank. Delete gunner. Make new gunner, it gets the”you are the first gunner” bonus reward, get to level 2, get box, put box in bank, delete gunner. X1000 times or however long you got for a full week while EME have their hands in their pants. Then take a gunner to 65, open all the boxes.

Stellar planning right there.

Sorry to the OP if he did not do the glitch. I am a [filtered]. Sorry.

@TheSarumonin Im a vet who is now a full time college student; I've got three young children including a newborn, and I'm in the process of buying a house. I check the forums and reddit. I dont use nor really have time for Discord. I'm not sure precisely who your response was directed at, but I've done nothing but support your vids even seeing you downvoted to zero on reddit everytime you post an update. I enjoy your snappy quick witted updates that dont take long, as well as the rmhm vid. But to use Discord as a defense is extremely close minded. Many many players dont use Discord, so if it isnt on here or reddit they wont know. Some dont even go that far, but only check the offical site. Only the most hardcore use discord, even among the hardcore who still play the game on console. The main issue is seeing those banned who completely abused the glitch. On Orisk xbox one, the trade broker wasnt affected. But on Vesporax many who both laundered the gems and not only those who opened the boxes(they had a few open boxes then distributed the illegal funds to the rest sos as to have as few showing that "di the glitch" as possible) have still be running around. Hopefully the bans keep coming.
Console General Discussion#31 3A5A6FTPXH07/14/2018, 11:49 PM
@Ippiki You're not a [filtered]. You;re just frustrated. I understand trust me. No need to apologize, and I'm truly sorry that I was the bearer of bad news regargin g this. I hope this doesnt completely ruin your Tera experience. I would like to see the game succeed on console. Too bad you're on PS4 or we could play together. Best wishes to you going forward though.
@3A5A6FTPXH
I was just stating in general. I do find it odd that a lot of communication that is important isn't reflected on the forums, as a lot of players do prefer it over Discord... However, I guess just like when Raidcall, Teamspeak, Mumble and all those other VoIPs existed, Discord has dominated and also has the ability to have its own little forum platform of sorts.

I'm sure the team is working hard to rectify the situation, as there have already been some players banned and/or inventories completely wiped, from anything they may have used that gold for, and removed that gold itself. Lots of work, crazy bug / glitch, but good it happened now do it never happens again. Sure, it should have never happened to begin with, but I'm just trying to see the good of horizon with this situation. ♥️

Console General Discussion#34 3YT77HD3EC07/16/2018, 07:35 PM
Honestly what I find interesting about all of this is simply the dated posts... this wrathful announcement occurred on the 12th for none other reason than she felt left out and uninformed. Additionally, there was no glitch! Lvl 10 boxes granted at lvl 2, bankable, non tradable, stackable to 999, and oh btw they gave another box everytime! The EME announcement NEVER said please take one so I’m lead to believe this was done on purpose.

Show me where it clearly states players “broke the law” and let’s look for the EME policy that covers reprimands... hum, only TOS. Nothing else.

What of the project manager who released this garbage? He/she still got a job? Guess we can expect this in the future ehe?

July 9th, after character slot rewards were removed, players could only then gunner loot box which oh btw had the same narrative.

Only people calling for reprimands are those who failed to endulge, and in reality your anger is misplaced. No player caused the lootboxes to be so easily obtained, no post was made by EME clearly stating lootbox intentions, nothing was posted to tell players not to do so, and prices rising was not due to double loot drop weekend at all (how many people got ambush designs? Oh that’s right, now everyone is trying to craft).

Dumbest people I know, mic drop

Actually you’re wrong. When the OP first posted this I thought the box was glitched and the dupe still worked. I thought I figured it out, did I go try how I thought it worked? Nope. I actually initially thought it worked by having a full inventory and opening the box, and instead of failing to open, it would open and the items would go to your message centre. That’ll why I immediately told him to delete the info. Because I’ve seen that sort of glitch before in a game.

So instead of I don’t know, immediately jumping on Tera and trying it with the box we literally still have, I told him to delete the info... why? I don’t want the game to be ruined.

I did plan to check if the glitch worked... eventually (I would have immediately quit for the pc version if it did) but instead what I did was fail to play Tera that night because I was angry about it. I was angry even after I saw the post that made us figure out the actual method, but I was relieved it no longer worked but I;m still mad, you know why?

EME didn’t notice this was going on til days after gunner event finished. They are not watching the servers, they are not watching the economy.

It’s too late for the one Xbox server and we still don’t know if there was anyone who hoarded these boxes on all the other servers, or if eme even looked into it. They probably didn;t even look at PS4 servers.
In the interest of transparency and since no official response has been provided in this thread:

The exploit was recognized and fixed on July 9. It impacted only the XB-NA servers and was caused by a mis-configuration of the event (an error) and was not intentional (all other servers/regions could receive only one box per server).

Since then, we have identified all players that exploited the event and the most extreme offenders have had their accounts temporarily locked while we perform some clean-up and investigate the scope of impact on the economy of those servers.

Many of the most extreme offenders will remain banned as their actions were clearly against the spirit of the event and ultimately our rules of conduct:

"No exploiting: If you find a bug or glitch in the game that provides and unfair advantage, let us know about it instead of using the exploit for your own benefit."
