Diablo III was hit with yet another exploit this week as players discovered a way to duplicate gold via a bug in the auction house. Blizzard responded by shutting down the auction house but did not perform a server rollback to reverse the damage. Path of Exile also released a new Letters of Wraeclast lore feature in its latest update.
Controversy hit the Diablo III community this week as a gold-duplicating exploit was discovered on the auction house. The exploit involved cancelling a bid on an auction within its final seconds, which returned the gold immediately and then returned it again when the auction ended. It’s not known how long this exploit has been in the game, but details of it went public this week and threw the game economy into chaos. Prices on good items were massively inflated and gold was rapidly devalued before Blizzard took the auction house down.
Rather than perform a server rollback, Blizzard decided to audit all transactions on the auction house in order to find those abusing the exploit.

In this DLC pack, new high-level multiplayer and solo adventures will send players through alternate realities as they amend or alter the origins of their favorite Heroes and Villains. Origin Crisis will also introduce Quantum, a newe power set that allow players to alter time and space as they battle foes.

We have selected some truly compelling narratives to explore in Origin Crisis, More >

We reached our to WorldAlpha's development team with a few questions about what the game has in store for 2013. Read up on our mini-interview to see what the strategy MMO has planned for the year ahead.
WorldAlpha is a niche MMO, with a focus on social strategy. There are only a handful of games out there that really put a great emphasis on the political and economic side, as well as the military side. WorldAlpha will allow players to specialize, so that those only interested in economics, can focus on being a business tycoon. Those interested in politics, can focus on getting voted in by other players, and creating a country of their own choosing.
