It started happening Tuesday evening. I was doing some dungeons to level my Pirate Captain, when I noticed something weird on my map... A guy was teleporting around the map, from biome to biome, and all dungeons got crossed out in his path. I tried tracking after him, not letting him out of my sight, but I couldn't see anyone. I thought he was a hacker, so I wrote down his name on my computer, wanting to write a detailed report to Trion in the morning.
When I woke up on Wednesday, I went into my computer file, but the notepad file wasn't there. I searched my entire computer, but it was gone. I logged into Trove and started doing dungeons with my Pirate Captain again. While I was doing them, I noticed sometimes I wouldn't do any damage at all to the bosses and glitch out of the boss room. I died a couple of times before I got tired of playing. I logged off and went to write a report to Trion support without his name (which I had forgotten), explaining what I saw.
After writing the report, I went off my computer for a few hours, and when I came back, support had responded. They said I shouldn't worry about it, and that they would deal with it. Happy about the fast response I promptly went into the store to buy something.
Then it happened. Just as I pressed N to enter the store, the game froze. I tried to exit it normally first, then with task manager, but my entire computer froze up. The game window started to flash and half of my computer screen was blue screen, the rest was the game window.
I turned off my computer, waited 10 seconds and then turned it back on. Oddly enough, I skipped the entire startup sequence and skipped straight back to the game window. But I wasn't in the same place I was before. I thought someone had hacked me, so I quickly scanned my computer for a virus, but it didn't find anything. Stupid antivirus program.
Yesterday night, right before bed, it happened again. The screen froze as I entered the store, and I had to restart my computer. Again I was in a different place, but with the same items in my inventory and equipped. And then I realized. It was me. I had seen my own name teleporting around me that Tuesday evening.
