You might remember the Ravager Exploit in SWTOR (or worse, you might have taken advantage of it); it appears that players who went against the rules set forward by BioWare are now going to be at the receiving end of penalties that could result in player suspensions.
The official community website of Star Wars The Old Republic has detailed the steps that the developers are going to take in order to deal with the situation.
Depending on the extent of exploitations, the players involved with the Ravager Exploit are going to be dealt with in separate ways.
There are two types of penalizations that might take place. The first one is for the offenders who took advantage of the exploit in SWTOR at a smaller level:
Received a warning along with anywhere between 1-7 days of in-game suspension time. Anyone who received an in-game suspension will also lose their forum privileges for the same period of time.
Then there is another category that relates to the more serious offenders. These guys might be looking at permanent suspensions:
For our most egregious offenders, they will have received a suspension up to a permanent suspension. Inside of those categories of player’s it is also possible they could have very specific additional actions taken against them including: Removal of inappropriately obtained high-end gear and crafting materials [and/or] Removal of credits and commendations
If you have been affected by the players who gained undue advantage of the Ravager Exploit in SWTOR, this might come in as a good tiding for you. For the others, do you think this is the right way to move forward?
