    Humble Pie – Gold Rush - Hunting Division 2014 – Official Statement​


    Firstly, my apologies for the time it’s taken to respond to concerns posted here on Arkadia Forum regarding the keys for the Aakas Instances. Until an investigation was completed I was unable to comment.

    I can confirm, and hence eat some humble pie that my advice was wrong. The value of the keys was not passed through into the loot of the instances as it was supposed to do. It was certainly going to the loot (I knew 100% it wasn’t coming through as earnings), however it wasn’t paying out as it was supposed to. Mindark and Arkadia Studios have worked together to confirm what was happening and agree upon what shall be done about it.

    1. All participants will be fully refunded the TT value of the keys used since the last update (VU2014.4 on 9th December 2014). Please be patient as it may take some weeks before all refunds have been completed.

    2. The winners of Arkadia Gold Rush Hunting Event will be awarded their prizes.

    3. The Aakas instances will remain closed until the next update due early March 2015.

    4. A new event will be run following the next update due in March, details will be provided once confirmed.

    I’d like to thank everyone for their patience with us while we sorted it out. I’ve been reading the forum posts and was pleased to see how many people maintained their trust in Arkadia that we would do the right thing.

    If anyone is ever in doubt about how the Arkadia team will handle a given situation, I’d encourage you to read about our culture as a company http://planetarkadia.com/arkadia-studio/


    Kind regards,

    Dave Dobson
    CEO – Planet Arkadia

    One question though is this just Aakas Doors or are Vaults included in the refund?

    Awesome post (and pie)! [​IMG]
    This seems a satisfying solution for everyone involved.
    So, we're all happy chaps again? [​IMG]


    Btw, do we need to send a Support Ticket with the date/time/number of Keys we used?
    Or is that something MA can filter out by themselves?

    No need to send any further support cases or update any current ones regarding the keys, Mindark will investigate who used keys and compensate the ones who did

    David, would you consider not allowing winners of this event to win prizes in the March event to be fair to those that dropped out of this event due to the bug?

    Hmm I think we should be abit carefull here. some ppl decided to push on a win or loose situation for them. Ateam stood up and did the right thing. And on topp of that they promised a new event once everything is working as intended meaning U will have your chance at the next run. Pushing this might not be in anyones best intrest.
