    Well, now you know why GZ spent weeks attempting to iron out the bugs in Q.A. for this event.....

    Good luck to anyone attempting to reach or stay above Rank 30. If Asian players are anything like Japanese GZ players, you will have to grind non-stop to keep your place, I think? Non-Asians will not be eligible for the top prizes which, if you haven't heard, will be a Chinese-language PS4 and Chinese-language game software (that you probably already have in English) :p

    Thanks, appreciate it! I posted this in the Event Schedule yesterday, but between the races & my updating, I completely forgot to copy it here as well! Definitely an important read!

    Also ridiculous that the top score this morning is now 9999999. 5 known cheaters in the Top 10… so so pathetic. And dumb..

      Important Event Info for Frustrated Users:

      Sony/Granzella apparently patched the exploit(s) with today's March 5th maintenance update!

      Certain known cheaters/hackers were seen attempting the exploit yet again, but they failed!

      Hah hah! :ROFLMAO: This is great news… plus the cheaters will get the penalty they so richly deserve in the end…

        This site is not the place to bring fighting from within Home to, keep it within Home and off this site. Going remove the off topic threads from this post.

        keep it on topic.

        It's a tough subject, users are seeing they efforts ruined by bugs and exploits not just with events but all around home. Some are down to developers not thinking. Some are down to users looking to exploit. Some are down to just issues that need a patch. Plus the not knowing if home has a future, its testing people's tempers. Not because we are a bad bunch of people but because we can see how our world is crumbling. And theres nothing we can do about it.

        Didn't realize a very on-topic mini-guide to help users have a far smoother event experience was "off topic" taboo (?!)— the combination of the HIDE + IGNORE features are included in Home for a reason, and it's thankfully being more widely-used now at the event to ensure the lag blues keep further away. And our chat logs from the oft-present trolls/spammers incessantly hitting "HELLO" or "WHERE ARE YOU FROM" a hundred times.

        If this isn't "on topic" — especially now —then I'll never know what is. This is one excellent method to keep Home all fun & games as intended.

        'Nuff said.

        And with that, very important new event news up next (in a few minutes)… I hope

        That post might have been removed by mistake, we had site problems why i was removing posts so it might have selected a wrong post by mistake.

        Ok, no biggie… I noticed the issues (had lots of probs getting schedule updates online yesterday). Just checking… Have a good one!

        Addendum: Just an FYI that some other posts were also incorrectly removed… such as a couple of schedule update notices (no longer an issue as it's yet another new event cycle big), and…no clue if anything else monumentally important vanished. Can't recall, so I guess not, right? Hope the server is behaving again! Cheers!

        IMPORTANT EVENT MESSAGE FROM SONY!

        Message of the Day (03.07.2014)


        【IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING FINAL EVENT】
        "Regarding Users that Engaged in Irregular Activities in the Final Event"

        Thank you for playing PlayStation®Home
        We would like to apologize for the confusion caused by a program deficiency in the Final Event.

        We unfortunately have done the following actions to the users that have accumulated MG Points in irregular methods, and have exploited this on purpose:

        ▼Action Date
        7th March 2014 (Friday)

        ▼Reason for Action
        Intentional and repeated exploration of program deficiency resulting in MG point delivery for personal gains over others.

        ▼Action Details
        Their ranking record up to the Action Date will be deleted.
        ※After the action has been taken, those users can participate in the event from the beginning again.

        We hope you will continue playing and enjoying the event.
        We will still try our best to make this event enjoyable and fair for everyone; updates will be sent out as new developments come in.

        PlayStation®Home Asia Management Team



        As you can see from the above MOTD, Granzella/SCEAsia fixed the MG Points "Granzella Plaza Ranking Board" located in the Granzella Plaza in Twilight space. They removed all scores obtained purposely by exploits/cheating. The first of several scoreboard corrections rolled out around 11:00p PST.

        But GZ/SCEAsia left out a few important points from their announcement.
        • All users who were purposely exploiting/cheating were also banned from PlayStation®Home Asia. Since they are prohibited from logging in, they won't be replaying the event as it suggests they can.​
        • The scoreboard still has a couple very notable errors/exclusions — LoveMachine-2013 and HK_ReccaWolf were both removed off the board also. Contrary to what some users believe, they did not cheat in any way; they're just excellent & persistent players. Their ridiculously-high previous scores were ones unintentionally inflated as a side effect of others using the exploits. Completely unexpectedly, neither had their correct scores properly reinstated AND they both were subsequently banned along with the actual known cheaters. Even sadder, LoveMachine-2013 informed GZ early on that her score had been compromised, yet this is her reward? Just pathetic. A few users (especially one specific person, you know who you are!), are petitioning GZ to correct this grievous injustice. Hopefully the result will be a corrective adjustment, along with a removal of their unwarranted bans.​
        • It appears the current scoreboard still features 1-2 user scores that are the result of the exploit, GZ was notified of this as well.​

        Yep, that's the same message I got in my Asian account. I replied to Sony Asia, hoping they will find out the real culprit or how the hack had first grown and put a stop to it before more innocent people will be banned for hacking their scores. I replied that I was innocent of this crime, and to save my points I had played throughout the days, but deleting the double insane points I had accumulated before.

        Otherwise, they owed me the Top 30 & 100 rewards as compensation for their blunder on not finding out any evidence to clear me of this charge. However, I did tell them that I will talk to them if they have any questions, regarding what had happened.

        Recca, what address did you send it to? Me and several friends where victims of this bug and will write to Sony and Granzella about this also.

        Just lame how Sony and Granzella executing this thing. They should have just apologize for the error, fix the bug, compensate for the participants, and start everything over and add a week to the event.

        You said it! This is what GZ/SCEAsia calls fairer. You and Love were jilted, plain and simple. Just hope between all of us we can get them to get you back in the game! You have no idea how bad some of us feel over this!

        And talk about the haters! A few of us got our asses chews out a few minutes after the last race but someone convinced you are guilty just beaus of the score. Insist,d we were only saying your weren't because your were a friend. Apparently facts don't matter to some —they are just jealous that they aren't as good a player.

        But I'm sure it'll get resolved fairly soon. Cross my virtual fingers!

        I emailed them at info-ps@sony.com.hk, which is Sony Asia. I tried logging into their PS Home Hong Kong official website, but I can't log in due to the ban, but I remember the email address when I ask them to give me their Money God Sister shirt when they didn't send it to me years ago as promised. Please put in a good word for me too, guys. This madness has got to stop and this needs to be dealt with like Thor's Hammer!

        You can try this too: psnetwork.asia@gmail.com

        And, one more thing, email them every day to the PS Home Management Team, because by then, someone will definitely respond when I tried calling them about the MG Sister shirts.
