While the Breaking News window is typically intended for news or information related to service issues or interruptions, this is something I'll pass along for consideration. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
That said, we are definitely aware of the scams you and other players have reported and are working on improvements to the Trade window that should help prevent those types of scams from occurring in the future. I’ve spoken with our developers about this issue, and I can assure you that they're passionate about finding a resolution and making it so that players can feel safe and confident about trading with each other again. Unfortunately, the kinds of improvements we're making cannot be implemented via hotfix and instead require a full client patch, so please don’t think that because we haven’t made any changes yet that we do not consider this is a priority. We're hoping to get these improvements in as soon as possible (i.e. with 1.0.4), but keep in mind that sometimes schedules can change due to testing and implementation needs.
In the meantime, we encourage players to always be mindful of possible scams, and to use caution when trading with people they don't know. Additionally, as we posted previously
, if you have knowledge of a possible scam (or exploit, hack, or bot), the best way to inform us is by emailing email@example.com
or by completing this web form
. We also ask that you refrain from posting information on how to scam or exploit others in the forums.
