PATCH 2.75 Notes

RE: Cheating

We've had a number of player accounts reported to us (or we discovered them on our own) of players who have made changes to their characters in some fashion, and then proceeded to earn high scores or renown scores that were inappropriately inflated. Our first reaction was to "suspend" those users from being able to post scores on the high score boards. Our reasoning for this is one of integrity: there seems little point to us maintaining a High Score board unless those scores are understood to have been earned legitimately. 

In our most recent patch, we have implemented a player-based solution for players who do not want to play with "suspended users". In our "Online Options" menu, one may now toggle "Allow Suspended Players" to "OFF", which will keep them from joining the game if they have been suspended from posting high scores and/or renown scores.

Players who are "suspended" may still play Wanderlust: Rebirth, but they may find difficulty in joining games in the future. We feel that a player-driven solution is the most diplomatic one; thus, the Wanderlust community - as a whole - will decide the fate of those who do not want to "play fair".
