Let's see, has DDO never seen exploits this bad? Really? I witnessed at least two economy- and game-breaking exploits during my active play time, and Turbine handled them way worse, like allowing them to go on for ages and not punishing the exploiters beyond 3-day bans. This was fixed within days of discovery, there was active, transparent communication from the dev team, and the effect on the economy has already been minimized. They've shown that they're not afraid to perma-ban exploiters and punish people who spread exploit info, and even gave out free stuff. If Turbine handled DDO crises in such a manner, I would've still been playing actively. In DDO, on the other hand, during the challenges exploit, inflation effect lasted for months, and I bet there's still people with banks full of ill-gotten epic gear from another.
