Official NA PvP Rollback

Recommended Posts

Had completely and utterly wiped an enemy based, you rolled back my ship from the safety of returning to the harbor victorious to right in front of their mortars. 

Thanks for yet another fuck-over due to your incompetence.

Dunno how a compromised steam account lets multiple people spawn shit in all over the place, unless said steam account had chat logs discussing RCON passwords for the servers. Worst yet, your account was compromised to begin with if that is the true story.

Let's not forget this illustrious Dev team left tons of server IP info, remote access info etc inside the ATLAS install folder on launch. We cant discount it's not tied to that and this is their cover that a nefarious actor(s) breach a steam account(which is terrible on your part anyway).

Or the potential that the RCON Admin exploit that existed in ARK from 2015 up until fall 2018 didnt get copy+pasted over to this iteration as well and you simply forgot to remove it here as well....

I don't know how to respond to this situation.  Blaming the Game developers for a Steam Password incident doesn't seem right...

On the other hand all the rage-quitting I'm reading about may mean I have a chance at placing a claim when the BattlEye/Microsoft Insider build issue is settled :classic_cool:

On a half serious note, I wouldn't be surprised to see Microsoft buy an "Anti-Cheat" company to integrate that function into Windows at some point...  They're probably getting complaints from plenty of Insiders in this past week... There are A LOT of AAA games that use BattlEye that suddenly became unplayable.

It was not just earlier today; players have been using fly mode for days. They also used the "kill" command on many Gallys around the servers before the time stated.

I LOST ALL MY POWERSTONES THANKS TO THE F***ING ROLLBACK  COMPLETE TRASH GAME

lame ass garbage game

If you got them in all that 5 hours, it'll only take you 5 hours more to get them again wont it. Also remember, nothing you do in this game is guaranteed to be there tomorrow, it's Early Access testing. Don't play EA games if you can't except this deal. Always be in a mindset that it could all get wiped at any time.

That can be done without a wipe, the only ones requesting a wipe are the people who haven't actually gotten anywhere in the game or who are playing solo.  This completely fucks anyone playing legitimately for no reason. 

you mean like the boat fix?

Early access has NOTHING to do with the rollback.

Better advice would just to be host your own server and play unofficial, then you don't have to worry about wipes/rollbacks.

Hang on there's in game admins?! Since when?! Would be nice if they actually made a godlike appearance and put some of the game glitches or paid back for exploit users destroying stuff in PVE

They do. Some of the big companies have grapeshot devs/admins in their ranks. They're really handy at fixing issues very quickly while the rest of the plebs can wait weeks through the ticket system.

Because we have worked hard to get where we are, how is a wipe fair?

LOL how is a wipe fair in an Alpha stage early access game? well lets see it's fair because it's expected to be multiple wipes at the very least one in an i'll say it again ALPHA EARLY ACCESS.

pretty sure steam uses 2FA by default, via Email Verification so i highly doubt it was just a mere compromise. I'm almost certain that some key-logger is on their systems where ever they login as admin on probably log in as admin at home where they download all the porn with key-loggers attached.

Maybe injector since they cant find the ones doing it.

The most likely means of the admin account being compromised is social engineering.

Someone had access to direct communication with or gained enough knowledge about the life of the admin to gain access to their account. The most common method of this is to learn a few personal details about the target and then use password recovery or support contact features to get in.

Most tech support staff are clueless and can easily be duped into granting access to people who shouldn't have it. There's been tons of cases of accounts across various services being compromised by means of a little social engineering and hijacking an email address or phone number. The latter is a very real and common threat.

Had an attacker gained access to the admin's email account or phone number (which can be a lot easier than you'd think) they would have been able to reset the account's password and use the admin's Steam account to their heart's content

From now on steam passwords must be 8 characters long, contain at least one letter and one number and one special character. Use of the word "password" is forbidden

"P@ssword1"

Done.

Absolute disagree with you. I am 430 hours into this game and apart of a mega tribe. I believe 100% a wipe is needed. Too much has been gained from cheating/exploiting. I will gladly wipe my max level toon with massive bases etc for a fairer start for EVERYONE

Yes yes, People love to complain about An unfinished game but if you read the disclosure to an early access game you would know that we are investing in game completion and helping the devs and staff to finish the game. We are working diligently to spot any bugs or inconsistency in gameplay that may have bad impacts on the final release of the game. If you have never been in a game project you do not understand the process as a whole. I enjoy early access and can not complain about the job they are doing. Many games that go under the guise of Early Access never even get updates. We have had many updates since launch and the game has been boosted 10 fold in playability since the initial launch. This is a work in process, they are striving for perfection even though unobtainable it is perfection none the less. I just want to play the game report feedback and see how they process the requests to fix items and bugs, Exploits suck but you know there is always someone that is trying to get ahead or trying to make someone else's life hell just for fun. These are the people we need to weed out of the community.

I agree with you completely. The exploits carry heavy loads, spawning in stuff, all kinds of first month bugs not fixed. Some still pending but we really need a wipe. I put the game up completely and would return to a more structured game now. No massive gate bases, no massive exploited walled systems, no spawning in fleets etc.. we need to have a wipe or else the majority that left will not come back. If its like this exactly on ARK guess its too late.

Pathfinders,

Earlier today, an admin’s steam account was compromised and used to cause some devastation on our Official NA PvP Network. To be clear this was not caused by a hack, third party program, or exploit. We have taken the appropriate steps to ensure this does not happen again. We’ll be rolling back our Official NA PvP Network by approximately 5 and a half hours to a network world save at approximately 11 AM UTC (3 AM PST/6 AM EST). We apologize for the inconvenience and we thank for your patience and understanding during this time.

Sincerely,

Grapeshot Games
