It started with the new patch today. Blizzard dropped the gold floor from .25cents a mil to .25 cents per 10 mil.
Enterprising players then bought gems for real money and converted them to gold. People were making billions on this.
But then! A gold dupe has just been discovered with some streamers duping TRILLIONS in gold by playing around with the 2 auction houses.
It is quite the mess at the moment.
Once all of the info comes out, I'm sure there will be write ups about it. I just saw a Chinese duper with 370+ trillion gold lol.
Is there a link that explains things in more depth than the OP does?
I don't know the ins and outs of the exploits as I choose not to use them or hang around the circles that passes that info on.
Been par for the course. Test server bugs are reported, but manage to make it into the final patch anyway.
It's funny i'm reading the patch notes on the test server and a ton of the percentages are the damage numbers they first started with in the beta. Tons of people gave them warning shit like this was gonna happen now they acknowledge it, shit fucks up even more.
Gold value was going to drop and prices will be crazy until they stabilize. Right now gem prices are through the roof, they will settle down after a bit.
The gold dupe is news to me, pretty sure Blizzard will have it fixed and bans will be given out.
They'll probably have to do refunds on hundreds of thousands of transactions. Add to that the rollback issue (what will it be, only gold/items rollback, or complete server rollback?... who knows) and massive bans, because a lot of people exploited this.
How do you roll back paypal accounts?
Too bad they can't punish those who have withdrawn the cash from their paypal accounts.
