    On the Topic of Duping

    It’s not often that I end up making ‘announcement’ posts here directly, it may even be a first.
    I wish it was on a lighter subject.

    A little over a week ago, the MassiveCraft Tech team were anonymously informed of a dupe exploit that sat within one of our plugins, MassiveHat. After some investigation, the exploit was reproduced by the team and the cause identified.

    Due to the nature in which this exploit was reported to us, and in reviewing the issue in code, we discovered that the bug has existed in the plugin for approximately 3 years - though we have no way of knowing just how long it has been abused by members of the community.

    We understand that players have had less than ideal trust in the staff team’s handling of some high-profile duping cases in the past, so we knew that we needed to be as upfront as possible with our handling of this one. We were not comfortable with evidence that could be deemed coincidental or that amounted to little more than hearsay. Thankfully, as the exact cause was identified in code, we were able to push an update to MassiveHat that would alert staff members and log whenever this exploit was used to duplicate items.

    This has allowed us to accurately and consistently identify players who have actively taken advantage of this exploit within a week-long trial. While we understand that other players have abused this bug in the past, we have no data to confirm these cases and are unwilling to deliver punishments on speculation.

    We take exploits like this very seriously, especially when players take advantage of bugs for monetary gain by selling regals and items for currency. These players have willingly and intentionally profited off of this bug, and in doing so have taken advantage of both the MassiveCraft team and community for their own gain.
    We would like to be very clear when we say that exploitative behaviour like this is not welcome on MassiveCraft.

    As of last night’s restart, the exploit has now been patched from the plugin and duping through this method is no longer possible. In the interest of being open with our community, we are willing to release the full logs of these exploits - present in the spoiler below. During this trial, three players were found to actively and knowingly take advantage of the dupe exploit; `Hardname7`, `wannag`, and `ninja124r`. These three players have each received permanent bans from MassiveCraft. We were pleasantly surprised that during this time this exploit was discovered and reported to us by a player in the community with discretion and care so as to avoid the issue becoming widespread - for that we would like to thank NotchyHerobrine. It is heartwarming to us to be reminded of players who do not jump at the opportunity to gain a quick edge over others, and who report issues such as these to prevent their exploitation.
