Diablo III Auction House Foul-up

The Diablo III Website has details on a screw-up in the Diablo III auction house following yesterday's new patch for Blizzard's action/RPG sequel. In spite of a month of playtesting of version 1.0.8, it included a bug that refunded double a player's gold if a player cancelled a gold auction, putting the auction house's natural tendency to continually inflate the game's economy into overdrive (a good trick in what is already the Weimar Republic of video games). They shut down auctions until closing off the exploit, and while there was a discussion of a rollback to undo the impact of this, but they say they have ultimately decided to focus on addressing individual accounts of the "relatively few players" who used it.
