Item duping *video proof* - its over.

(not my video)

 

So after blizzard wanted to so badly protect from item duping, this happens. And this isn't the recent crafting roll backing crash glitch, this is actual duping.

 

EDIT: Apparently the video owner was playing a prank, the dupe isn't real.

    THe top comment for the video calls out that this is a fake and the guy who posted the video even posts a response to that person more or less try to say " thanks for letting everyone in on the joke" at least thats how im reading into it.

    Ah I see, I'll leave the video, but apparently it was some sort of prank.

    If that is fake, thats some real photoediting skills right there.. I wonder if he just says its fake to stop the vid from reaching blizz...

    Looks pretty real for a fake x.x

    Well aparently it was real enough... blizz has hotfixed the issue but they have no control over the items now curculating.

    prices have droped big time on crazy loot.

     

    Too bad really.

    Now if only blizzard would get off their money grubbing asses and fix the session spoofing that keeps getting people hacked, happened to a friend of mine, was in a piblic game took a break came back a few hours later with everything on lv 60 char gone, he had a authencator too, so he wasn't hacked how its normally done with a user/pass.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    You guys are so easy to fool. You think this kind of editting works server side ? The moment he logs out, they are all gone. If he shows me duplicating those items and then logs out, and logs back in and they are still there, then it MAY be real.

    Servers are now down due to an Asian item dupe bug.... ROFL!

  • Yeah, it's confirmed to be fake. Also no hotfix, since nothing needed fixing :)

    Yep happened to friends of mine too. It's sad tho that people don't believe you when you tell them the truth. My friend had an authenticator too and it still didn't protect him, which led us to believe it was an inside job. Someone at Blizz is getting kickbacks from the gold farmers by helping them out. The proof is right there happening to people like our friends. Don't tell anyone on these forums tho. they might just tell you that you imagined the whole thing.

    seen on reddit

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments/uvyu6/diablo_iii_asian_server_item_duping/

    [–]CerealCraft

    I spoke with some sources and have confirmed that some forms of duping HAVE occurred in US and EU servers.

    Here was one of the exploits.

    The auction house clock is NOT server-sided. It is actually client-sided. Hence, you can turn back the clock to cancel your auction. However, you can take this further.

    You had to sell an item. Collect the gold. Then, turn back your system clock to the time when you placed the auction. Your item will now be there again. You can cancel the auction and get the item back. You now have the gold and the item.

    So having everything online did not even stop exploits. Things were still left client-sided.

     

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/Diablo-3-Auction-House-Gold-Duping-Exploit-Uncovered-by-Players-275046.shtml

    Apparently, the whole exploit was showcased during a live Diablo 3 stream organized by some players, which quickly prompted others to try it out. After replicating the steps, many found themselves with millions upon millions of in-game gold in their accounts.

    Blizzard Community Manager Bashiok has posted a few things on the Diablo 3 forums and said that while the exploit on the live stream was inconclusive, there was no real proof that shady things were going on.

    “As far as we can tell the supposed exploit never worked, but we'll continue looking into it,” he said on the forums. “Yes, changing the system clock can change auction times, but that doesn’t dupe gold. It's pretty easy to see how much gold people have, and we have no indication anyone has/had that much.”

    Blizzard will still investigate this potential exploit, according to the community manager.

    And the Banhammer comes down

    We recently issued a round of account suspensions and bans to several thousand Diablo® III players who were in violation of the Battle.net® Terms of Use for cheating and/or using botting or hacking programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair play that’s essential to everyone’s enjoyment of the game, botting, hacking, and other such exploitive behavior can contribute to stability and performance issues with the Battle.net service. As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and fun online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we'll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed.

    Zarhym

    Several thousand times. Take that you cockroaches
