Trove Has Been Down Since The Crack Of Dawn Thanks To An Economy-breaking Dupe Exploit
PC: OFFLINE – Consoles: ONLINE – Game Downtime – 10:05 PM PDT / 5:05 AM UTC
Update 2: Trove on Xbox 1 and PlayStation 4 is now back online. There will still be the regularly scheduled downtime later in the morning, which will deploy a separate fix.
For our PC players, the game will not be up for some time: we anticipate tomorrow afternoon, Pacific time. The issue had enough impact on the economy that we want to correct it, and the clean up process for it is a manual one. The good news is that this process will prevent the need for any rollbacks. Instead, we have banned the perpetrators behind the manipulation of the economy through exploitation, and will be removing items from players who received them unwittingly.
We will return with another update in the morning with a more solidified time for bringing the PC servers back online. Thank you, again, for your patience as we take the steps to preserve the integrity of Trove’s economy, a time-consuming but worthy cause.
PS: Yes, we will be working out how to compensate players for this extended and unexpected downtime. However, all focus is on getting the economy cleaned up, so the details will be worked out after it has been completed. Rest assured that Fasti will inform you of the specifics as as soon as he is able!
Update 1: 11:30 PM PDT / 6:30 AM UTC – At this time, we are currently preparing a fix that will resolve the issue that caused us to bring the servers offline. For consoles, we anticipate for this fix to take about an hour from now. For PC, we do not yet have an ETA for when the servers will be back online. Thanks for your patience, and I’ll be back to post when the consoles are back online.
Due to an previously unknown issue, we are bringing the Trove servers offline across all platforms to investigate. As soon as we have an update for you, we’ll be back with more info, but at this time, there is no ETA for when they’ll be back online.
