A Prank Too Far?: ROBLOX's Recovery

4/1/2012 Today was the day the ROBLOX website came under attack.
The story of what happened was quite a confusing one. So, here goes.

From what I heard. There were 4 players involved. Merely, Minish, Pheedy and are17

Firstly, Minish threatened to purchase Merely's prized possession; The Domino Crown. This of which you may know was at an extortionate price. Merely thought it was all a joke, and then Minish, somehow manged to purchase it (How he did it is a complete mystery to me), And then everything started getting worse and worse.

The next thing that happened was that all admin/moderators accounts lost their adminship, and then the only 2 moderators were Pheedy, and oddly enough are17, both of which haven't been seen for ages.

Then everything started getting wierd, starting with a new face.

This of which is one of the most creepiest faces known ever. though, you cannot purchase it, and on a character it looks incredibly creepy. as seen below.

Then soon after that, lots of limited items were being sold, such as the Dominus Infernus, the Wanwood Crown, and many more. Then before you knew it, there was a sudden flood of items, many of which were sold for 1 R$, and limiteds were sold with less than 100 in stock. 

You would think that is all?

Nope. There was more.
They started posting as the admins.
(Censored)



The events of last night shocked the whole of roblox, and there has been rumors of a "Rollback": Where the website is reverted back to a previous date where there is nothing wrong with the website.

Where are Pheedy, Merely and Minish now?
Well, Merely Currently remains unbanned.
Pheedy and Minish are now Banned/Deleted
And are17 is also Banned/Deleted, though he's saying he has had nothing to do with any of this.

So, what do you make of all of this? Post your reactions in the Comments and discuss them with other players...

  3. ATTENTION: CEO of ROBLOX, David Baszucki, has released an official position on the hack of last night-- This was definitely no prank.

  4. Relax guys, soon ROBLOX will be back up and running as usual! Everyone is gettin really serious and wound up but ROBLOX can fix all thats happened...it sounds wierd but try to enjoy it. It is kinda funny if you think about it, in a few years we'll all be rofling about this moment when its all fixed. It brings action to the 'quiet site of roblox' which personally i love :3

    1. I created this post mainly on word of mouth, meaning, I basically grabbed parts from conversations around roblox, though, looking at it again, I do believe Merely is innocent aswell.

  9. roblox should do a rollback, i think it is the best way. plus i dont want those people having hats like that, like with only 21, 44, 5 , 55, 7, 3, in stock. its just too crazy.

    1. Yes that is true its not fair but think about it we could lose some hats and gear in the process. Plus i think we should get some sort of hat/gear/face for dealing with this and being calm.

    2. By saying we may lose hats and gear i mean that some of the limited hats that were brought out were decent looking i think a resale is at hand.

  10. When I looked before they closed down the site, some admins, like stickmasterluke, were using that face, obviously hacked.

  11. I know exactly how these guys did it. No, I don't hack on Roblox, nor exploit, but I've realized a number of NTX unguarded possible exploits.

  12. I wish they would properly publish that face it looks so beautiful.

  13. The person who actually CREATED Minish didn't do ANYTHING. Pheedy and are17 unbanned Minish and THEY used Minish's account. Merely was later deleted for "hacking the woodwan crown" in which he had been framed by the opposing abusers, Pheedy and are17.

  14. are15 had nothing to do with this. the 4 were pheedy,minish,merely,and Mcnoobster.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well, Merely wasn't involved in it. I remember the banner saying 'This is Pheedy, MInish and McNoobster here hacking roblox'
    And are17 was not involved with it either, since he didn't do anything, Pheedy just gave him the mod badge.
    And merely was not deleted, 1dev2 was for buying eerie pumpkin head.

  16. Cool Story Bro. (only joking) Why is it that roblox history is intresting. Oh well. I honestly think Merely done none of this. if he did why did roblox hire him as an Intern
