Chest Bug/Exploit

Hi there,

I recently witnessed an exploit with the chest ticketing system. If you hold a chest, (and proceed to do some shady stuff). your teams ticket counter is reduced by 5 but the chest is not tagged as belonging to your team. So you can reproduce this process as often as you want, thus winning the game easily.

So long

Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    Yeah, I know of this one.

    One of the many bugs the devs don't want to fix with a quick update, thus we are forced to have crappy rounds until 3.0 comes.

    We're sorry this has created a divide between us

    Denshin is a rather overpowered class.

    We're currently working on making Denshin less OP.

    Just stop being so OP.
    When will this nerf for Denshin come?

    I have never encountered this exploit, and was unaware of it's existence until I saw this thread.

    Thank you for telling everyone how to do it, though.Kappa.png

    Suck up less, or at least make it less obvious.

    Don't reveal the exploits, please. I edited it for you.

    We are aware of it, and IIRC is fixed in the dev build.

    Sorry for my rather detailed explanation, I totally forgot that I was playing into wrong-doers hands by that. Should of handled it via PM or something. Again, I am sorry.

    "chest_capture"
    {
      "userid"  "short" // user ID of player who captured this chest
      "chestid"  "short" // index of the chest that was captured
    }
    


    There are already IDs for each chest, if I understood it right. One could have fixed the stats/points problem with a scripting solution. But only a fix in PVKII itself will solve all the problems, including the counter manipulation. I wonder why they did not release a small update - doesn't make sense at all.

    because then they'd have to call it PVKII 2.5

    Actually, no they can call it 2.4.1 (like the zombie panic team does with their bug fixing updates) or something like that.

    When they released 2.3 soon after they made some updates fixing bugs or adding lanugages (the update names weren't given). But it still stayed beta 2.3

    Some players get banned from servers for this, kinda harsh.

    wtf was that video about lol, anyway ive never heard of this exploit. Generally I see the island expliot, take a chest and jump into vikings spawn.

    This is actually the main reason I want the update to come out already.
    I'm sick of quitting games as soon as someone I know will exploit this until they win whever they join.
