Albion Online has two currencies inside the game: money, which allows you to realize all your virtual transactions, and gold that you can buy with real money and that costs a silver arm of the game. Sandbox Interactive Is being waged against the ill-advised people who sell gold to the players to make profit on the back of Albion, causing the anger of these same sellers.
By eliminating the possibility of exchanging gold directly in play, Sandbox has managed to totally stop the possibility for third parties to sell gold for money, putting their lucrative practice to the side of their game. The problem is that these people do not see a good eye on the shutdown of their business and have therefore decided to fight against the developer’s decisions by taking hostage the entire community.
Thus, for several days, the already unstable servers of Albion have been attacked by hackers to prevent the game from running smoothly. These denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are aimed at preventing players from enjoying their purchase by Prohibiting access to the servers of the game. These same hackers claim their right to sell gold and ask Sandbox Interactive to replace the old system.
Obviously, developers continue to refuse practice and do not accede to the claims of the hackers, they have banned almost 800 accounts in the last days and continue to banish accounts involved in the sale of gold. These DDoS attacks should therefore continue for a while, as long as Sandbox has not found how to prevent them and strengthen its security system. If the players suffer from the rigidity of the studio in front of the demands, it is absolutely intolerable that a small niche of players dictates its law to the whole of a community, it is necessary to encourage Sandbox in the combat and to help as much as possible their In this endeavor.
Albion Online is released on Android, PC, Mac and Linux.
