    Yeah, as the article implies the actual reason behind this is that they don't want to undermine the sales of their own XP booster packs.

    Exploitative scum.

    I wish some other developers will do this, mostly in PvP games where the “Pay to win” players constantly “farms” the lower ranking players.

    Blatantly prohibiting players from using the game in order to further make their packs more alluring.

    How so? It is the levels that are banned, not the player.

    This is a game that shipped with a "Permanent XP Boost" that you could buy to make the early grinding go by quicker. That should have had the bigger outcry, so I find it funny how much attention this is getting now.

    Hey everyone,

    We'd like to discuss XP farming.

    Story Creator Mode was designed to be a tool for players to let their creativity and imagination run free as they build their very own Stories to share with others, using a modified version of the tools our own designers used to develop the quests in the game. However, since the launch of the beta we have noticed an increasing flow of “farming quests,” that exploit the tool to get large amounts of XP. These exploits risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and purpose of Story Creator Mode and results in less visibility for the creative, interesting and frankly fantastic community stories that have been published.

    We want to focus on rewarding creativity by highlighting quality quests and we are working on fixes and adjustments to reduce the impact of such farming quests on the player experience. We are also changing Story Creator Mode’s terms of use to prevent creators from publishing these kinds of Stories.

    We are working on the following fixes and adjustments to reduce the impact of such farming quests on the player experience, shifting the focus back to the tool’s intended design and use – as well as actively combatting exploits moving forward:
    XP farming quests will not appear in our automatic recommendation system - this includes the Hall of Fame and the trending section.
    Stories that are reported for exploitation or cheating will be hidden moving forward.
    Our terms of use will be updated to reflect the misuse of the tool.
    We will be sanctioning those who continue to willingly and intentionally misuse the tool.
    Implement further solutions with upcoming title updates. We will share more information as we near these updates.
