The problem I see is that if you perma ban everyone, what happens to those that benefited from the people that exploited? I'm pretty sure that we all got carried by those that rushed gear through the exploit. So we are all indirect beneficiaries of the exploit. If someone got suspended 24, 48, 72 hours or perma ban, something was finally done to show NCSoft is paying attention.
Because like all the past episodes, they thought they'd get away with it scott free. I'm not really looking for compensation for the exploit times. Mainly the length EC has been Evergone, ie the time from when disabled to enabled.
