They made that system, they made it alterable.

These dailies were also designed for a system that didn't have money involved in it, Marks. The old marks grind was set up to discourage you from using it to buy ships, it was doable, but it took a long time.

now, unless this mission spontaneously popped into existence; it had to be made. Who made it then, well since its not in the foundry, its clearly either the deity of your choice, or Cryptic. My vote is on the latter. So yes they created it.

Right... its been on the forums several times, its been around, since it was created, But its secret, so secret, that most folks knew about it/

Exactly, its costing them money plain and simple, and becayse it is, its an "exploit"

given this is twice in less than a month, they've dealt with design failure on their part that led to "exploiting" you've got far to much faith in them, for me, but hey, thats your choice, and you're welcome to it.

What I find odd in it, is its timing, again, it involves their source of money, so its fixed rapidly, even as its been around in whole, for a very long time.

The F2P model isn't even a factor here. What is, is priority. Why is it, that a game breaking bug, took several fixes. Yet an exploit that is clearly costing them money, was fixed rapidly, in one shot, oh, and in a fairly "stealthy" way.

In all my time with other MMO's they were big time to announce exploit closings Cryptic, no only doesn't do that, several times they don't even MENTION it.
Next time you log in, ask yourself this.
