Reddit link: http://www.reddit.co..._tp_duping_bug/

Basically, players have been duplicating siege prints for wvw for profit on the trading post. The biggest source of duplicated objects are Omega Siege golems, which tanked in price going down to as low as 30 silver temporarily. The devs are aware of the duplication bug, but have not given confirmation if it affects items outside of WvW. Despite this, the bug exists and Arenanet is looking for help to uncover the true nature of the duplication bug.

You can help out by emailing additional information to *[email protected]*, please only send information if you have prior knowledge of the bug and do not attempt to find the exploit. There is a strong chance that you will get caught by Arenanet's detection grid if you successfully replicate the bug so don't risk it.

Despite the original reddit post's title, the thread containing the dev post confirming this has been removed.

It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

I'm surprised that more hidden bugs haven't been found yet. I have a friend who makes IRL $$$ for speed running games at record times by (you guessed it) exploiting the most difficult bugs to find in games. I wouldn't doubt there's some broken code in GW2 that would allow you to warp "hack" to level 80 instantly.

Hmm...didn`t know about this, but then again when bots are still in game everything is possible.
Who ever take care of anti cheating in GW2 does job poorly, bots don`t have "safhgfakg" names anymore but normal ones even guild tags, even then they are very easy to spot they are online 24h running same map (any human being playing in that fashion would be dead after a week) :P

Those might be hacked accounts.
