It was no surprise to me when I read a report that a gold-duping bug existed in Diablo 3. It was also pretty obvious what the next step would be to temporarily close the auction house to prevent gold coming from said exploit the spread. For those who are unaware of why these are such obvious reactions, it is because Diablo 3’s auction house allows real money transactions. Any artificial influx of currency would have severely damaged the game’s economy and quite possibly break the game, making people lose interest in the game.
I wouldn’t call this karma for Blizzard being such money-hats, it is just one of those given things since RMT (real money traders), have made a living off farming game currency and rare items across almost any kind of multiplayer online game while others just relish in breaking games.
At this time, Blizzard held back a possible rollback and is in favor of tracking down people who used the exploit to reverse their ill-gotten gains as they claim only a few number of users abused it. I guess this is good news for people who are still into Diablo 3. I have no idea why anyone should still be into the game, I mean they lost me with the “Fuck that loser” fiasco.
