ISOLATED; Having minimal contact or little in common with others.
Though occurring multiple times, these cases do not share a common point of origin, nor are the culprits related in any way.
I thought these were very isolated cases? Now your telling me I'm the 50th person to bring up cases of duping in the last 4 months?
Okay as much as I enjoy talking to you about this matter, if you routinely searched for 1b+ barb items to upgrade into or resell with groups of people also doing the same thing everyday constantly throughout the day, you would understand what we are seeing.
I have responded to you enough times and it's going nowhere except you citing me definitions of the English language.
good luck to you sir.
edit: there is plenty of evidence out there, it's not hard to see. I'm sure some other ppl who don't want duping to get out of control can help show more evidence for the skeptics.
Your evidence is evidence of something other than what you're implying.
You haven't come out and said it, which I find kinda odd.
You're implying that there is a bonafide method of in-game item duping. I have refuted that innocuous implication quite logically. As in, if this was true, one person could make it quite obvious, let alone the damage several people could do if they knew how to do this.
If this was fact, it would be undeniable. We would be seeing something far more compelling than a smattering of items here and there, in small numbers.
That is what you're implying, correct? That there is an in-game method of duplication being exercised?
A month and half ago the first real signs of "duping" that seemed to be much more than just rollbacks popped up, for those of you who don't know, Rollbacks aren't simply dump your items and tell blizzard your hacked lol, Rollbacks are very rarely granted.
The first real mass signs of an item being duped was in 1.04, when an echoing fury with 1179 dps, str, and lifesteal popped up on the AH, RMAH all at the same time. I believe at one point there was 6-8 on the AH/RMAH. Everyone was talking for a while and it just kind of faded out, people naturally assumed this was some kind of creative rollback abuse by a few people.
A lot of people, myself included did not buy these items even though they were at amazing prices since we knew they were duped. There was some forums posts, etc, etc, nothing really ever came of it and it died out.
Slowly since then there has been more and more duped items trickling into the scene and most recently there has been lots of new sightings of multiple kinds of high-end barb gear, Chests/Bracers/Weapons, who knows what else is out there and has been duped.
Whoever is releasing duped items are being smarter and only putting one up at a time, The thing is even when they sell dupes for $250, there are people sniping that item to re-sell for 1b on GAH, so now it's happening again with these lacunis and this mace, the same thing that happened with the echoing a month or so ago.
My assumption is that this time around they've gotten a little smarter at the whole duping process, they aren't just duping a single item and releasing it in masses (Selling it once every 2-3 days will still make it popup on the GAH/RMAH together if the value of the item is over 500m).
They are instead now duping multiple different items and spacing them out more and looking for new items to dupe.
If all these copies of these items were made because Blizzard is just plain retarded and didn't see that the rollbacks were the same items over and over again, that just makes me think there is even higher of a chance that there is not only duping but duping with rollbacks going on as well.
