Gold Dupe Audit Still Ongoing, No Diablo 3 Auction House Yet

Blizzard kept pretty quiet today, but did provide one update on the ongoing process of fixing the gold cheat damage and restarting the Diablo 3 Auction House.

5/10/13 3:25 p.m. PDT: We’ve made substantial progress with our audit, but the process is not yet complete. We don’t yet have a specific ETA as to when the Auction Houses will be available, but we wanted to at least touch base with the community and let you all know that we’re still working hard to address the effects of the gold dupe. We’ll be providing another status update by 7:00 p.m. PDT, as well, so be sure to stay tuned to this thread. Thank you!

It’s now Friday evening. The patch went up Tuesday morning, and Blizzard noticed the duping and shut down the AH Tuesday evening. Thus it’s been 3 full days of this “audit” with no end in sight. To my surprise, the most popular choice in our poll yesterday was agreement with Blizzard. As the AH downtime continues, I wonder if that opinion is beginning to slip?

What should Blizzard have done to fix the RMAH gold dupe bug?

I voted for that option myself, partially since I found a Zuni’s chest piece Tuesday evening worth about 70m (HC). But as the days without the AH add up, I’m growing more to wish Bliz had just spent all Tuesday night + Wednesday resetting everything. And I don’t personally care about the already-gold-farmer-flooded SC economy, which is the only reason for Bliz to do this “fix” at all.

  1. Doesn’t bother me one bit as I don’t use the AH anyway.

  2. You have to be incredibly gullible to believe blizz is going to be able to take care of the gold increase. I know of a handful of people, and its quite a big handful, that are all rolling in gold pits of well over 500 bil and some in the trillions. Nothing has been done to ANY of them yet and they spread in insane amount of gold around when the AH was up. Not to mention some bought A LOT of insane items, all of which they still own. A couple got locked accounts for a day or 2 then unfrozen. Fail blizz.

  3. Case by case will mean they only take action on the top 10% of the worst abusers.
    And probably not even that.

    Rollback and be done with it,. perfect recovery, lowest investment time.
