For the last several years, the Mabinogi team has been working on combating the effects of third parties using illicit methods to farm and then sell gold and/or items to players, which severely damages in-game economies and hurts players that earn their currency through legitimate means.

It's funny how right after being posted, a bunch of people come out of the woodwork to oppose it.
It's just like when you want to get swarmed by angry wasps, you just have to kick the tree the hive is on to piss them off. Honestly, Nexon should start jotting down names here and start looking into things, and keep to their own words. Because honestly, an announcement will only do so much, and the people who conduct said RWT will start propping up out of nowhere to SUDDENLY post on a forum they never post on, or spam on the discord when they have no previous activity in doing so.
I honestly suggest looking at the alexina/nao facebook pages, which are riddled with 3rd party Real world trade, maybe do something about that for once. The people you want to stop from conducting RWT are all out in the open here, they literally cry for attention, and will always, ALWAYS try to justify what they do by skirting around their words.
