    As far as I know you don't get anything. You just get the satisfaction of knowing you stopped it from happening again. :D

    Peace of mind knowing that the developers know about the issue so people won't be able to exploit it in the future.
    Appreciation from the developers, potentially giving you greater advantage than somebody else when applying for focus groups and/or beta testing.
    If you only did it once, and reported it, your account won't be actioned against for duping (except for probably losing the duped item).

    If you were the first person to report it, and gave enough details for EA to reproduce the issue, they were at one time actively giving something... I forget what. I don't know if they still are.
     
  7. If you can dupe a llama...can you dupe a packhorse....full of loot?

    I'd definitely report it.

    Send an email with how it was done to uobugs AT ea.com and JDalberg AT ea.com

    It is easy to dupe llamas. First you need some soft music and candlelight for Mister and Missus Llama. Then you give them some nice tasty barleygrass to eat and a couple of bowls of champagne. After that nature takes its course and you wind up with another llama in a few months!

    Report that you duped something to EA? I think you get banned :D

    Well, maybe that's drastic. More likely, you'll get ignored.

    I duped my mare a long long time ago. It was extreme luck though. The conditions to reproduce would be very hard to force. But I sent it in anyway. In fact there was another pretty nasty dupe I stumbled across that was very easy to reproduce... sent that in too. I have yet to hear any feedback at all about my submissions. Nor do I expect too.

    There was a reward program that promised rewards ranging from some trinkets to free game time on up to free lifetime subscriptions depending on the severity of the exploit. Never heard anything about it after it was introduced though.

    Regardless of the reward, send in stuff like this. They destroy the economy and more importantly they devalue rewards meant for those who have earned them. There shouldn't really be an issue as to what to do about this.
