We have recently caught a number of players abusing exploits or otherwise cheating, and we have, quite unhappily, had to ban people over this ill-advised practice. One exploit in particular, by which players have been temporarily inflating their HP to levels that are higher than is normally mechanically possible, has been seeing a lot of use lately.
All of the players who have been banned for abusing this exploit have acknowledged that they knew that this was against the rules, as stated here:
If it's known, don't do it, and if it's not known, report it in a private message and don't do it again. If you're not sure, chances are if it seems like an exploit, it probably is.
Don't use custom .hak files or other third party programs. Evidence of cheating or using these programs will result in your account being banned and your character vault wiped clean.
If you are abusing exploits, please stop, and consider this a warning: It is very
easy to identify when someone is abusing exploits. For many of them, it's just a matter of the admins running a report. For others, including the HP stacking exploit, DMs don't even have to be on the same map as you to notice that you're doing it. So just don't do it.
We'll try to get a patch in place that makes the HP stacking exploit in particular mechanically impossible, if we are able to; but this is the only warning I'm giving: If you're caught abusing this or any other exploits to unfairly advantage yourself over the server content (and, by extension, other players), you will be banned for it.
