Diablo III Auction House Downtime Continues

An update to the Diablo III thread covering the aftermath of the recent gold-duping fiasco says the auction house downtime will stretch on for at least 24 hours more than originally anticipated. It seems the painstaking hand audit that that they have chosen has proven more complicated than originally anticipated. They remain resolute that this is the way to go over the database rollback the userbase is demanding:

> 5/9/13 12:10 p.m. PDT: As we mentioned earlier, we're currently auditing transactions that were performed on the both the gold and real-money Auction House following the discovery of a gold exploit after patch 1.0.8 released. For those just tuning in, we decided to perform a complete audit and focus on the few players that exploited this bug rather than performing a full rollback and taking everyone offline for a day (or more) – losing all the progress they made.

This audit is a time-intensive process, and to make sure that we can do a thorough job, we’re going to keep the Auction Houses in maintenance until that work is complete. Unfortunately, our previous estimate was incorrect, and for that I personally apologize. We don’t have a new ETA, but we anticipate that the service will be unavailable for at least another 24 hours. We’ll continue to provide updates in this thread regarding the status of our Auction House maintenance as they become available.
