The EverQuest 2 economy underwent rampant inflation last weekend as the result of a duping bug which hackers used to duplicate large quantities of the game's currency. Sony monitors the game economy very closely, and they saw the amount of money in the game increase by 20 percent in roughly 24 hours, prompting them to take action. GameSpot talked to Chris Kramer from SOE about the incident. "Kramer also said that SOE has tools that allowed it to track all the duped platinum so it could remove it. Thus, he said, while the EQ2 economy had taken a huge inflationary hit on Saturday, the company's customer service team put in a lot of overtime over the weekend. As a result, the problem was largely resolved by Sunday."
