Ok, I confess. I may have used the exploit for my own benefit.
The thing is I did it unwillingly and unknowingly.
Let me explain: the past two weeks or so I've bought things from the auction house.
Things that I was in need of and that seem to be a reasonable price.
Nothing stupidly cheap like a hundred large devil scales for a thousand plat or so.
Just cheaper then usual and not uncommon to pop up every now and then on the AH.
This was all on G-Land and up to yesterday our server seemed to be fine.
But then it hit me, I started seeing things pop up on the AH that usually are not THAT cheap.
At the same time I know these things are now more common as there simply is more of it that goes around.
So technically it should become cheaper (a supply vs demand thingy).
So no worries on my part as I did not see any warning from Turbine.
Again up to yesterday, the warning and the fix came.
After that I logged in to check the AH and it did seem to have struck our server as well.
Now that got me worried, did I participate in an exploit scheme without me knowing or willing to do so.
