Bug: Twisted Bows at the Farming Guild
At the time of this week's update (11:30 GMT - 28/02/2019), a bug entered the game whereby a Twisted bow spawn was added close to the Farming Guild in Kebos. As a result, an unknown number (we are working on this) of Twisted bows entered the game unfairly. Very shortly after (before the hour was out), this was hotfixed to no longer have an option to be picked up or Telegrabbed.
13:35: The game has been turned off while we examine our options and work with various teams to decide what happens next. Rolling back the game is one such option we are considering. More on this will be posted as the situation develops.
13:56: We can confirm that the game will be rolled back. You can expect the game to be reset and come back online as it was just before the update at 11:30am GMT this morning. Any changes made to your account between then and now will be reverted and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. We estimate that it will take 4-6 hours to complete the rollback.
15:30: The game is now back online following the rollback. Thank you all for your patience with us in dealing with the bug.
Hardcore ironmen: please note that if you died after the update at 11:30am GMT, you will have been revived and will retain your HCIM status. However, your stats will no longer be tracked on the hiscores. This is due to the hiscores pages re-categorising these accounts as regular ironmen from this point on. As such, your skills will still appear and continue to update on the regular ironman hiscores page.
Players who abused the bug to buy bonds and redeem them for membership will have appropriate action taken against their account in the near future. The handful of players that were banned for abusing the bug will instead have their offences reduced to temporary bans. They have received an inbox message regarding their ban.
We would like to take this chance to thank you all again for your continued support and feedback throughout this process. As always, this has gone to show your passion for the game.
