Today we have some bad news for all console players that stacked up Charcoal and hoped for a big payday tomorrow. Because Terramak on Discord confirmed that the change that was patched into the PC version a couple days ago will also make the console “Heart of Fire” launch. This obviously means that the PS4 and Xbox crowd can’t profit from Charcoal as much as PC players, but as pointed out in our initial report it’s still pretty darn lucrative and basically free Guild Marks and Gold to bring mass Charcoal from Module 14 to 15.
Preparing for Economic Changes Doesn’t Equal Exploit
The mention that they aren’t taking action on players who made use of it is probably also reassuring to some. Although it was obvious that this was simply a conceptional flaw, some players hilariously started to call for bans and unnecessarily unsettled the community. If you punished smart players for properly preparing for economic changes, then you’d also have to ban those that bought up Masterwork products or Forgehammers because they anticipate their prices to rise. Paying attention to the preview server means you’ll occasionally have an edge on the market. That has nothing to do with “exploits”.
But the players that indeed didn’t like the weird state of Charcoal at least have the confirmation that the exchange rates have been toned down significantly. Now let’s just cross fingers that the launch will be smooth tomorrow so everyone on consoles will be able enjoy the “Heart of Fire” content.
