We are about to fully wipe the Avorion server. We don't want to, but we found evidence of MANY players using an exploit that made the current game completely unfair. The exploit has been patched and can no longer be used. Those that were using it know who you are and should be ashamed. This is the only way that we can insure a PvP game is fair to everyone considering the rampant cheats.
We know this sucks as we are losing all our hard work and efforts as well, but there simply is no other way to balance things as they should be. We would just ban all the offenders, but unfortunately Avorion's logs aren't advanced enough yet to show the player names of the culprits. We can see how often it was used, just not the names of who did it.
With this wipe, we are slightly lowering the difficulty as well. Not a lot, I DID say slightly
