    Default EMERALD RING DRAMA

    Ok so for those of you who don't know, here's the story

    On Saturday afternoon it was discovered that by a glitch, Emerald rings, which are usually in the diamond reward section of the catalogue for 100 diamonds, they were there for 1000 duckets.

    Naturally lots of people bought one (or multiple)- this problem was across all the hotels.

    Since then, everyone who bought them on .de has been tradelocked.

    On the .com hotel, this morning they removed items from people's accounts who bought one. But they've removed weird amounts... Some people are in negative numbers of credits and diamonds, I've had 300c + 300 diamonds removed when I only bought one..

    Habbo are going to restore the duckets (they said on Twitter) of people who bought them but they won't get back the credits.


    There is OUTRAGE because some people have had thousands of credits removed even after only buying one!


    My theory is that they've not been able to distinguish between recent and historic purchases - I've bought 3 diamond rings in the past so that WOULD add up to 300c.


    Thoughts?

    habbo is so shit

    Are there new staff there as of late? What are all these new ideas being implemented? They kinda suck and are all about Habbo making more money.

    Kinda crap how they managed to sort the issue out. I understand about them revoking the ring purchases and so on but to decide to do more than in the first place seems ridiculous.

    Although looking at twitter, it seems they are restoring the lost credits and whatever else is missing.

    With the way it sounds it makes habbo look like a scam company. There must have been a trigger for the glitch. If we are talking conspiracy theories. Isn't a glitch usually started on the platform itself... someone must have been doing something they weren't supposed to.

    Update: they're adding credits and diamonds back to people's accounts, it was probably just a technical glitch for people who have bought emerald rings in the past

    For some reason, I have -184 Credits (even though I only bought one ring from the Duckets, I've never had 1000 Diamonds before so that's the only one I bought) and my Diamonds have stayed the same.

    Oh another glitch :rolleyes: .

    In my opinion if you bought any you deserve to face the consequences, weither that's tradelock, loss of credits/diamonds.
    God said, let there be light.
