Tower of Fantasy hackers “steal” inventory, but Hotta is in on it

Tower of Fantasy hackers remain relentless despite Hotta Studio’s attempts to knock them out in the anime RPG game. This time, they’ve devised a way to wipe players’ inventory by inviting them to parties, and requesting an emergency fix from the dev team.

Warnings have spread across the Tower of Fantasy reddit, urging players not to join parties with others outside of their friend groups. “Don’t go to parties with people you don’t know!” reading a thread. “This just happened on the Hephaestus server. A guy named ETXRNAL started inviting people into his team. People who joined lost everything in their inventory. Be careful everyone.”

They then attach a picture of their Reddit comment which gets flagged on hacker forums with the caption “posting it because someone finally figured this out today and started abusing it in the worst possible way and will most likely try to sell this in P2C.”

A follow-up comment reflects the original post. “I was one of the people who had stuff stolen by EXTRNL on Hephaestus and over 50 red cores were stolen as well as a bunch of matrix moves. I think they may have also tried to steal matrices since they were randomly equipped while in my party too.” Their claims are backed up by a video showing their hacked account.

It’s unclear if the hack allows the rulebreaker to steal players’ items, or simply wipe their inventory. Some claim that the goal of the hack is to obtain goods to sell, but at the time of writing the situation remains unclear.

However, Hotta has been quick to retaliate, shutting down its servers on October 13 between 05:00 and 07:00 UTC to address the exploit.

“We regret to inform you that we will be shutting down our servers for emergency maintenance to ensure you have an excellent gaming experience in Tower of Fantasy,” they write, with an Oct. 12 chirping reveals that the developers are looking at “lost items in the inventory under certain conditions for some players.”

Players will be awarded 200 Dark Crystals as compensation, which will be delivered two hours after server maintenance. While some feel this is enough given that some players have lost their entire inventory, at least the developers are trying to fix the error these hackers have caused. However, for your own safety, we would recommend that you only party with players you know.

Hopefully you’ll be able to regain some of your lost loot by using Tower of Fantasy cheats, and there’s also the Vera update to look forward to to lift your spirits. Here’s our breakdown of the Tower of Fantasy 2.0 release date, locations and banners to get you up to speed.
