I apologize for the lack of current details. What I can currently say about this topic is that
we’ve recently begun a renewed campaign against RMT and Bots. The change in these markets is a direct result of the success of that campaign.
You can expect to see more details coming out within the next couple of weeks.
The price spike doesn’t represent a shortage, it represents prices returning to where they should be without bots. This change creates more opportunity for players playing the game to earn money. The oversupply the bots created hurt the legitimate producers of items. As the prices go up, more real players will enter the market.
