So what happened that they suspended the prize exchange?
Did the moogle start handing out rank 1 prizes to everyone?

Was there a point where the numbers/moogles did show up? They had been saying the 19th. As mentioned, it's not just that the moogles aren't there, the numbers weren't in the server message as they'd typically be.

Kinda wonder if they're just covering for a mixup there.

Message sure reads like they accidentally trusted the client again and left the bonanza moogle in an exploitable state. Was fixed awfully quickly though if that were the case(~2hr after it went up?), so maybe it was just the date mixup.

How is it there are already 5 rank 1 winners if the numbers are yet to be announced?

I get how internally the numbers have already be drawn but this just comes off as suspicious or amateurishly.

I saw the announcement on JP Twitter. Looks like they released the winning numbers and then noticed an issue with the Bonanza NPC and weirdly pulled it. I didn't play anyways so I didn't log on in time to see it

They usually don't do it right when the update drops but about a week later.

Was because the 5 winners were all NA so they're doing a 2nd draw of numbers.

Probably because they noticed I got something higher than a Rank 4 prize :p

Suspension of I Dream of Mog Bonanza 2019 Prize Exchange 2



We would like to share the current situation regarding the temporary suspension for the prize exchange of “I Dream of Mog Bonanza 2019”.

We are continually investigating this issue, but will require additional time until the prize exchange resumes.
The NPC “Bonanza Moogle” will remain hidden until the issue is resolved.
More information will be provided as the situation develops.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

See, you joke about things like this and I laugh at the comment initially, but then my tin foil winter beanie comes on and I start theorycrafting. Question everything from SE.

I can't see how doing this (while they've admitted it is invisible and bugged) would NOT get you banned.

I could picture them doing it if it was just 1 NA winner..

What if you swear because the REMA you illegally obtained was Nagi? I mean, they gotta allow it then

There was an exploit like that a long time ago where you could force a goblin (can't remember which) to give you crap. Like any item in game. Don't know the details about it, old LS leader spoke about it, but I'm pretty sure people were either suspended or banned for it.

blatant racist shouts can do so as well. You should ask Samusaron.Shiva about that... or whatever his new account is I forget but you can figure it out pretty easy whenever someone starts several hours of shouting about Hiep lol

That was ..... 6 years ago?

Back then, yeah, rules still applied.

There've been well over a dozen exploits that either gave you any item or items out of a range due to buffer overflows. It would not shock me if they made a mistake resulting in that being possible on bonanza moogle, but it has never been possible on the bonanza moogle in the past.

And no, they weren't 6 years ago. The most recent was less than 2.

The goblin with the bats, that he's talking about was at least 5 years ago. At least I think so lol.

no good exploit has ever been doable with just ase, it's always modified packets

batallia meebles one was 4-5 years back, didnt give you 'any' item but let you overflow about 65k values so a good portion of the items in the game could be found in it(though with duplicates and invalid ids, not all)
