Topic: Information on the robot death bug (2012-07-02)
We've noticed yesterday that some players seemingly randomly had their robots automatically reimbursed upon death. Our investigation showed that the bug got in with the 06-29 Friday patch.
Contrary to how everyone calls this "duping", there wasn't a moment when anyone could gain more than they had before they got destroyed. The anomaly consisted of them simply getting back their robots with everything they had on them. More importantly, when this happened, they didn't drop a loot container.
We're currently conducting an investigation to find out what course of action to take, besides reimbursing the losses of those who got destroyed by these "free" robots.
