Diablo 3 Auction Houses will be unavailable for at least another 24 hours
Blizzard has said it is still “auditing transactions that were performed on the both the gold and real-money Auction House,” in Diablo 3 following the gold exploit in patch 1.0.8 discovered earlier this week.
The firm has decided to perform a complete audit focusing on the few players which used the exploit rather than “performing a full rollback and taking everyone offline for a day.”
To make sure a thorough job is done, the Auction Houses will remain offline and in maintenance “until that work is complete,” meaning another 24 hours.
“Unfortunately, our previous estimate was incorrect, and for that I personally apologize,” Blizzard Community Manager ‘Lylirra’ posted on Battle.net. “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.”
