    2 million gold - What the fuck?

    so... I was out of the country so I wasn't playing but I'm pretty sure I had NOTHING on the AH before mainteance (the one that brought the new patch) took place...

    Now, today, I log in and, all of a sudden, there are 2 million gold on my account. I sent them to my stash and it turns out it is ''working gold''...
    I'm not sure what to do... should I contact a blizzard employee or something?

    I don't want to keep gold that isn't mine (not because I don't want it, but I don't want to be banned)... What should I do?

    Keep it for yourself and keep it quiet....but really, 2 million gold is nothing they will even notice, it's not very much gold at all. That aside, it could be very likely your account was hacked and botted, make sure you make your account info secure and I'd recommend getting an authenticator if you don't have one.

    moral way: contact a gm explains your problem.

    immoral way: keep it for yourself and don't talk about it.

    Anyway, your account probably got hacked and the hacker did not changed the password. This way they have less chances to be detected and can manage to use the hacked account to buy and resell stuff.

    You probably were lucky enough to find something when the hacker wasn't online.

    But please by all means change your password and e-mail in your battle.net account.

    but how could it be botted? it clearly is a ''bug'' (At least I guess)

    there were NO ITEMS listed , my AH has no records of any items being sold... I simply had the option to send 2million gold to my stash and it worked... That's what is fucking my brain.

    Before the part when you sent the gold to your stash, it should have had a description as to what it was for.

    My guess would be a delayed Auction compensation. Especially if you've been gone as long as you say, the last time you would have played would have been when the AH was in complete disarray. This would probably coincide directly with that period of time when the AH went down for several days before coming back up. I was refunded a little over a million gold I'd spent on a gem that never showed as well as several hundred thousand in missing purchases/sells.


    Edit:
    Need more info before I can vote in the poll. Are you a hot chick?

    I don't remenber ever selling an item for more than 300 k though...

    Also, no, I'm a 60 year old black bald male on bath salts.

    I lol'ed just keep it man. Until blizzard contacts you otherwise! You maybe left a auction on 300k bid and it has ended up over a mil.

  8. #8
    Did you bid on something and lost the bid? You would have to have had 2M gold though. Anything else would've showed up in your log. If it was a hacker, the gold wouldn't have came through AH.

    Maybe I'm stupid here, but what do you mean by "working gold"? Illicit gold?

    I love how keep it and dance naked in the street are tied.
    It really isn't a lot of gold in D3. If you feel dirty about keeping it then contact Blizzard.
    You can easily re-make the gold on your own.

    Thank you Shyama for the beautiful sig ♥

    I mean I thought I wouldn't be able to use it (At first I thought it was some sort of glitch), because there were no auctions listed with that money...

    Anyway, guess Imma just keep it, thanks everyone ^^

    You forgot the third option:

    immoral and shameless way -> keep it and tell everyone about it

    I don't like ties, so i voted for the dance naked one because i could...

    Anyways, on topic due to the ah being screwy for a bit you could of gotten compensation from something like the above posters said. If you want to be on the super safe side, contact a gm but i do not personally think that the gold was obtained illicitly if it was an ah bug.

    Contact Blizzard - they almost always let you keep the gold

    There is no need to contact Blizzard. Make sure you change your password and what not though.

    Also you sure can dance naked on the street, I doubt that will have any impact on your D3 gold.

    I'd contact a GM. If you're like me, you won't enjoy the game knowing you took advantage of a bug.

    Dancing naked in the street should be encouraged regardless of whether or not 2 million e gold ends up in your account.

    Worst case scenario: they take it a away
    Best case scenario: they let you keep it and you can still know you played it legit. Sometimes no one claims that $100 dollar bill that you found on the ground. It's still your responsibility to report it. That's how I see it at least.
