Misplaced Ark’s July replace, Spells in Spades, introduced the Arcanist and commenced a brand new spherical of development occasions, together with the Punika Powerpass. This week’s replace added a delay in having the ability to entry gold rewards when buying or accepting Powerpasses. Quickly after that replace was introduced, Powerpasses had been utterly disabled and nobody is at present in a position to settle for or use one. Right now, gifting was additionally briefly disabled.
There may be at present no clarification on why each of those have been briefly disabled aside from there have been “points” with each options. Anybody who tries to make use of a Powerpass whereas they’re briefly disabled will obtain an error message, and the identical goes for anybody that tries to say one. There isn’t any timeline but both on once we can anticipate a repair for these points or for the options to turn into obtainable once more.
“Gifting in Misplaced Ark has briefly been disabled as we handle an issue associated to the usage of the characteristic.
Powerpasses additionally stay disabled, and we’ll present an replace on the state of those options as quickly as potential.”
Whereas the group isn’t clarifying but simply what’s happening with these options, it’s in all probability not a far-fetched guess to contemplate whether or not this has something to do with potential exploits or the ever-ongoing combat in opposition to botting. The addition of a three-day ready interval in an effort to entry gold that you just get from utilizing a Powerpass was much like different efforts earlier in launch when the group eliminated some early gold rewards from the principle questline and pushed them to later levels in an effort to fight bots and alts made for RMT.
It’s not a stretch to see one thing related within the three-day ready interval, however gifting now additionally being briefly disabled appears to make a stronger case for motion alongside these traces. If accounts are unable to ship objects, this could make potential investigations simpler to do, by limiting the attain of any probably affected objects.
