Blizzard has re-activated Diablo III‘s Auction House after it was taken offline last week following the discovery of a gold duping bug which allowed players to earn billions.
“Only a relatively small number of players had the billions of gold necessary to exploit the bug, and only 415 of those players chose to use this exploit for personal gain,” production director John Hight explained over on the game’s forums. “We elected not to roll back the servers in the Americas and are instead working to remove duplicated gold from the economy through targeted audits and account actions (as indicated above) without taking away progress that our players rightfully earned.”
The Auction House is now fully operational and Blizzard has announced that all proceeds from exploited auctions will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
