You all assume far too much. First, this is only in Asia as we know and, second, Asia doesn't and will not have a RMAH anyway.

Dupes still exist in EU and US server. You could buy the most expensive item in AH and you would get with a trick, the money and the item. So basicly there are people running around with

trillions of Money and high end items.

If the dupe still exists in-game, why the hell aren't our servers down?

Also Eurogamer are fucking idiots. Their is no Real Money Auction House in Korea and never will be, their government won't allow it. If I know this, surely a big review site should.

According to Blizzard, they have NEVER BEEN HACKED or BREACH OF SECURITY.  Or so my BS email went.  Obviously, there are holes.  And if the asian market found this, why is the western market still up?  This is not 1990, internet and communication is rockin.

The reason NA server didn't come down, is because it is already fixed.  The Asia server being down is more likely attempting to remove all those items.  Also, this wasn't a direct dupe and basically allowed unlimited crafting of items.  I assume this didn't work with found items maybe due to each item being individually recognizable somehow, but crafting new items, well they are new and unique.  This was introduced with the fixes for turning in quests multiple times to level characters quickly.  How they couldn't see this coming though with the way it worked, is insanely short sighted and I have to wonder about the intelligence of the people working there.

You might be right, but in that case why is it sandwiched between two sentences speaking of the Asian local version, in an artical headlining a dupe going on in the Asian local version?

Poor writing skills if your assumption is correct.

I hate Eurogamer anyway! :D

Blizzard has no handle on the cheaters in this game, the goldsellers are going crazy with all the stolen gold.  If you buy gold in this game you are donating to the hackers.

Their decision to not offer single player is really a horrible design choice.

Diablo II is far better than this new version even with it's dated graphics.

Activision...I mean Blizzard fail yet again.  Noone saw this coming?  Does noone remember how bad Bnet was in D2 with hackers and exploits?  You'd think Activision would learn.

Because if there is an exploit - it is Blizzard's 'fault'.

Taking the servers down effectively prevents players from playing a game (which they paid for) because of something the Developer did (or didn't do).

 

To use the dumb 'If you brought a car" analogy...

You buy a car... it turns out that the manufacturer (thinking it was cool) installed computer controlled ABS brakes... and it turns out that by some weird connection if you turn the radio on while running the windscreen wipers the breaks don't always work... so the manufacturer remote disables your car via a cool satellite security system the car has.  You still have the car... you just can't drive it.  And the manufacturer has no idea if (or when) they will be able to fix the problem?

 

Now, the other point here is that asia is not USA.  Other countries (outside the USA) have consumer protection laws.

In some countries selling a product and then not delivering it is against the law.  What the penalties are depends on the product and the severity.  In most cases it could simply be a case of the customer getting their money back... but depending on how long this continues and how many customers are involved it could also result in other penalties for Blizzard

Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.

Sources in Asia regarding this exploit was released a few days ago.

 

According to the Korean player who first used this exploit, his main reason for doing so is to 'bring down Blizzard and D3'. 

With Blizzard's closing down of the Asian server, it appears that his aim has been achieved.

The player in question posted a screenshot of his avatar with 3 billion Gold, and then preceded to post another screenshot, taken moments later showing 6 billion Gold. From what i understand, the exploit involved duplicating one's inventory. 

 

It is unknown how many other players have been involved or whether this was an individual's work or the work of a group of 'worshop' gamers who specialize in virtual currency trading in online games.

 

With Diablo 3 overtaking many online games across Asia and skyrocketing to the number 1 position, even with a highly devalued virtual currency, the D3 'worshops' stand to make huge amount of real-world profit by selling virtual gold. 

 

Whilst Blizzard may be able to detect and ban accounts that trade in virtual gold 'in-game', they are powerless to stop players from doing so through 3rd party means. And from sources in Asia, the duplication exploit is one of numerous exploits that has been discovered and currently in play on the D3 server.

This really cracked me up when I first saw the title. The whole "you have to play online only because of dupers, cheaters and hackers will destroy the game otherwise"... erm oops!

Really too funny, though considerably less so for those in Asia who can't log in and play the game they bought. I do feel bad for them.
