Gamespot.com is reporting that third parties are manipulating the currency in EQ2
, leading to massive inflation on the Station Exchange. From the article: "The players then began trying to sell the ill-gotten plat on Station Exchange, the official auction exchange for EQ2 weapons, armor, currency, and other virtual goods. 'The amount of money in the game increased by a fifth in about 24 hours,' Kramer said. 'We have a lot of alarms for this kind of thing, and they all went off on Saturday.'"
Thanks to some exhaustive data tracking, most of the duped currency was removed from the economy by Sunday.
