THIS blizzard is a good good idea it eliminates the problem of duping though isnt hurting the good honest players. im REALLY glad you finally came up with something intelligent. and i really really hope that you keep up these good ideas for the future of diablo 3.

now if that is the case then that's pretty low. more information would be welcome.
all dupes (both the restored AND original) must be boa otherwise its pretty pointless because this means every rollback still makes new dupes.
does this mean this policy is not retroactive?
this makes no sense, either go all the way or dont start at all.
did you consider or will you ever implement full realm "rust storm"-like dupe cleanup measures?
(but instead of destroying all existing dupes these would become boa)

Despite what many here think, there is no way to dupe items other than account rollback abuse.
Last December, we made some changes to our regional account rollback policy for players in our Asia region. We implemented this update to protect the in-game economy from the noted rise of false compromised account claims by players attempting to gain duplicate items.
Wow, it took you guys like what... half a year to implement a tiny no-brainer change that should have been there from the start... I'm super impressed!
Now i wonder how long will it take to notice and fix a crafting exploit i described in my report to you 3 months ago? you know, the one that has already ravaged certain markets
But its okay, take your time..

while this is a nice improvement, it would hurt the one elite player who has one of if not some of the world's best items to suddenly be removed from the game (that is tradable)
and so no amount of gold will ever be able to buy that off the person who got hit by a roll back.
The whole point of what makes diablo diablo is ITEMS, and has always been about the items imo, not able to trade limits alot of possibilities and hurt the wearer even more in acquiring other items they need for other class. After all, good items translate to gold and gold buys other player's items. If anything this may hurt the economy from another angle.
at the end of the day I thought Blizz controls the rights to all digital properties, so they can if they want to remove all duped items once and for all, which is better than a mass reset anyways. Its not like they are trying to maintain a very good reviewed Diablo game, in fact they have nothing to lose anymore but to gain.

When Blizzard finds 10 identical items on their servers all 10 should become BOA including the original so the person trying to dupe loses the benefit to ever duplicate the item. All duped items in the market right now are TOP END items and with all the threads about duping and being able to check on diablo progress if an item has been duped the responsibility to shell out millions if not billions on gold should fall on the buyer.
And if you continue to provide rollbacks and return the gold and gems then that will become the new market to get money. If you at this point don't have an authenticator, really if you spend so much $ on items pay 6 for a authenticator or download the free phone app one.
New rollback disclaimer should be after april 2 we will return your ccount BUT ALL items including gems become BOA and your account will start with 0 gold. More gold can always be made playing and with your gear you should be able to get it back.
Just my .02 cents and hoping for something that REALLY fights duping,
This should be retro active to remove all the dupes from the economy.
It shouldn't be hard to figure out what items are dupes.
order by item name and stats. <- this probably including a unique identifier already.
mark as account bound all items that are not the originals.
