With this exploit, a player could shadow other players around the game world, unable to be attacked or make attacks themselves until they decide the moment is right. When that moment arrives, the player exits passive mode and kill others around him before turning passive mode back on. Players have been asking for years to see a fix for this problem as a single skilled troll could hold an entire server hostage. Developers have just recently released a fix for this by imposing a cooldown time on passive mode, which will stop players from abusing passive mode’s invincibility.
