Trion's CEO Scott Hartsman has issued an official response to the allegation that there is a duplication bug for APEX currency. APEX is purchased with real world dollars and, when opened, yields in-game credits. Players have alleged that this is an issue that has been in the game since alpha.

"There isn't a dupe bug.  There were some instances where APEX could be used to yield more credits than one was supposed to get.   Our investigation showed that this affected a relatively small number of people. We've temporarily paused their accounts and we're doing a targeted cleanup on them right now, then releasing them. 

People who were found to have intentionally abused it appear to be around a dozen globally, and they'll see more serious actions taken against their account."

Keep an eye on the ArcheAge forums for more as it is revealed.
