Last note on the exploit for today. We fully believe that the issue is resolved at this point. However, parts of it are tricky to verify with absolute certainty. If you happen to notice that you are able to use this exploit at any point going forward, please cease using it and contact me privately, immediately. Reminder, here is what was happening:
Alright friends, let's talk about why we had the emergency maintenance. There was an issue that when someone in certain zones completed a Mission and hit the accept button to complete it, they would receive the rewards but the Mission wouldn't actually complete. This meant someone could infinitely hit the accept button over and over again and reap those rewards.
This created a bad situation for two reasons. First, it was extremely exploitable. Two, someone could get stuck where they couldn't progress because of their Mission not completing.
