A. they cant do a full server roll back due to some legit rmah transaction since not everyone was in on this exploit.
B. people that didnt take advantage of the exploit should not be punished in anyway by a server roll back
C. it wasnt as wide spread as everyone is assuming it is and blizzard has stated that.
D. there has been zero down time so nothing lost. Only lost is that the ah has been down for a little awhile big whoop this has happened in the past and also that you can not trade gold which is good since there is exploited gold out there right now and blizzard is keep it from effecting your account.
a.) yes they can... charge backs are not that complicated...
b.) you missed the point.. if they did it asap as per usual with any major game company that has done rollbacks (yes this includes bliz... they've done them plenty themselves) then there wouldnt be any real punishment would there for legit players? As i said.. if dont asap.. were talkin only a few hours of server up time... there's no complaint... but as i also stated at this point having it up so long its impossible to do without having a major affect on legit players (comprehend more before posting.. dont just read the parts you want and retort lol)
c.) blizz can say anything they want.. doesnt make it true does it? can they furnish the proof that it wasnt wide spread? can you? without it... its only hersay and thus.. the general speculations, conspiracy theories, etc etc happen.. again which would have been solved by a complete rollback (AGAIN IF DONE QUICKLY AFTER DISCOVERY) just to make sure you see it that time.
d.) i cannot argue.. you are correct on this... but it doesnt change the fact that it was a poor decision. Put it this way. This whole problem (which supposedly is fixed now in just the investigate/ban/mini rollbacks phase) and the speculation, drama and hype.. would have been done and over with by nights end if they went with a rollback. Instead this topic will hover and linger, speculation will continue, trust falters more (dont get me wrong i love blizz games.. but honestly.. after all the garbage that goes in in d3 u cant say people havent lost faith and trust). And when they do finally say "OK We're done, its all good now" Then what. Many will still say they didnt fix it right, they didnt fix it all, blah blah blah. etc etc.
The point is.. they had a clear cut easy escape and fix route.. with no PR problems aside from the omg its a bug, its a dupe... oh you got it fixed and rollback so its all good? thats cool servers were only up a few hours so its cool.
Instead.. they went with... well.. this....
