Does anyone else feel a little shafted by them removing duplicate NW rewards?

So today PA announced that they will be taking back all duplicate rewards that were given via the new NW system. 

I'm a relatively new player to the game and with that money I have been buying some upgrades for my character(aka the money is gone). I didn't know it was a bug and neither did my guild. We thought we received double rewards for capturing the longest timed towers. Over the course of the past 2 weeks we have received 3 or 4 duplicate rewards(according to our guild master) totaling ~1.8-2.4 billion. They also stated that if you don't have any money, this will cause your CM to go negative.

So my concern is....I already spent that money. If this is their fault for not properly QAing their rewards system and no one took specific action to EXPLOIT the reward systems, why is the player base being punished for the developers mistakes? Now I have to get 2.4b (at a net gain of 0) because their code had issues? This has been going on for two weeks and they didn't even give us a heads up stating something was broke or mentioning that they will be taking back the rewards?

I don't know. Just wild to me that they would do this after giving every player and their moms a 27b item that's marketable. Yet getting a couple extra bil for trying their new mid-tier nodewar system results in me losing some of the money I have earned.

Classic PA move. Release bugged content, punish people for not, idk, somehow avoiding the bug? Just don't win I guess?

Most games give you rewards when the developer fucks up. PA takes your stuff instead. This company is ass backwards. Reminds me of when Siege crashed a few months ago, and they didn't give our guild our participation rewards, even though we participated. Even after multiple tickets they flat out refused, but god forbid they mess up and we get a little more money. Feels like I'm dealing with the fucking IRS.

And who remebers when they promised 500mil for guilds just for participating in nodewar (prob 2018ish?). And then when it came to handouts they back paddle saying it was a typo and it meant to be 50mil hahahahaha

This is why they've been doing it. A lot of the individuals and guilds have known they were abusing the system and boasted/bragged about how they got 'V' items out of the deal with no repercussion from PA ( Some streamers use to laugh about it on their streams).

PA should have addressed it sooner but that is what happens when a gaming company is more pressed about the quanity of their product than quality ( Reason I will never ever play a Korean made MMORPG again).

PA has made it clear that they are more interested in pumping in new players than they are in retaining old ones.  This is a classic strategic blunder since existing customers are usually much more profitable than are new ones.  Whatever.  It's clear from their New PLayer Rewards to the dynamic rng they use to help new players more easily enhance to get pens.  I think this is a very short sighted strategy, but it's clear to me that current PA leadership isn't concerned about long term game health.
