First off, thanks for your patience and understanding as we worked to resolve the unexpected Lamborghini Murciélago cop car bug.
We were informed by our community of the bug last Tuesday evening after the weekly maintenance patch. For a period of 45 minutes when this glitch was live, over 1000 gamers took advantage and exploited this bug to redeem the Murciélago cop car. In some cases, many, many times over.
This was an error on our end (our bad!), so it would inappropriate for us to take action against users who took advantage. However, to be fair to drivers who previously purchased the Murciélago, we can’t let this one go either.
We have taken back all the Murciélagos redeemed within that 45 minute window. This also included all the cash and car slot transactions that were gained from the selling of multiple Murciélagos that some of our gamers deliberately engaged in.
We understand that most gamers may not have realized it was a bug or that they were in violation of our terms of service. For this inconvenience, when we remove the Murciélagos, we will offer in exchange a small compensation.
A big thank you to the community who notified us about the bug. You guys rock! Something nice will be coming your way too!
