I spent money on the RMAH to buy a few gems after the play session I had following the release of 1.0.8. This was because during my routine check of the auction house I noticed that radiant star gems were worth 100 million each. After I sold my gems I heard a rumor about a gold dupe.
After testing and confirming it out I immedatly logged off the game and reported it in the bug secion on these very forums, suggesting that the auction house be shut down and a roll back of the servers. I did not try to spend the duped gold on expensive items, nor sell it on the RMAH, or buy gems to sell on the RMAH.
It wasn't till several hours later when the auction house was actually shut down that blizzard anounced that they weren't going to do a roll back but had the ability to undo all the harmful trades and auction transactions.
Still I had faith. Faith that things would be fixed. Faith that I would recieve a refund for the money I spent on the RMAH which I would never have spent if I had known there was a gold dupe. Faith that the economy would go back to normal.
This faith was rewarded with a ban. Blizzard stole my money, gave it to charity and proceded to ban me. I acted for the most part with responsibility and a fair amount of integrity. Instead of taking responsibility for their own mistake, Blizzard has punished each and every legtimate player by allowing ANY amount of the duped gold to remain in circulation. The inflation caused by the 15% of duped gold remaining in curculation (AT LEAST 300,000,000,000) will be extremey harmful to any player, making any goals of achieveing top level gear nigh impossible. It is also true, that while some dupers were out for profit, others (even knowingly breaking the ToS) were out to smash the economy so badly that it would force blizzard to roll back the servers. They just wanted to save the game they loved. They were also rewarded with a ban.
I have completely lost faith in this company. This whole thing could have been undone in a 24 hour time period but you chose not to.
