99 Cred Balloons

Posted by Rankyn Phyle on 2015 Jun 24

I’m a little surprised that day two of the big credit dupe in Star Wars: The Old Republic​ has come and gone with no hotfix.

It’s not even one of those things that requires you to dance on one foot under a full moon to exploit… it’s as simple as buying a 1cr item from a vendor (as intended) and then immediately selling it back for 100cr (unintended).

It takes less than 5 seconds to create 9,801cr since you can buy 99 of the things at once.
Dedicated exploiters can crank out tens of millions of credits in a very short amount of time.

I mean, at the very least they should have run a hotfix today to just remove the item from the vendor and then fixed the item and put it back in with a regular Tuesday update next week.

There was a notice about it on Tuesday after the extended maintenance and they’ve posted updates about it over time, but it remains unfixed.
If they were going to hotfix it on Thursday, they’d have certainly posted an announcement before now.

UPDATE: Looks like they’re hotfixing it (with very little notice) early Thursday morning.
