Blizzard Acknowledges Diablo III Item Duping

A post by Blizzard to the forums for Diablo III announces planned changes to their "account rollback policy" in North America and Europe, saying that as of April 2nd, players in these regions who have their characters restored by Blizzard customer support will have all wearable items bound on account, so they cannot be sold, traded, or auctioned to other players. They say this matches a policy change they implemented in December for the Asia region, and for the first time to our knowledge, confirm the long-held theory of many of the game's players that there are duplicate items in circulation created by players abusing the rollback policy (a player sells items or passes them to an accomplice and calls Blizzard customer support to ask their character be restored from backup because their account was compromised, getting duplicates of all the gear back). "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," the post states. "This policy has proven very effective in helping reduce the number of duplicate items in the game while still allowing us to assist legitimately compromised players, and now we’re ready to roll it out for our Americas and European regions."
