Dont really care much either way about blizzard taking a cut of this...did someone really expected them not to?

I think anyone who would expect them not to take a cut is crazy.

There is no moral, legal, or any reason they shouldn't. There are several reasons why they should, though. It's more content for us and more quality service.

You're selling something that Blizzard made...only fair they get a cut. Morally and legally.

Or they can make it stupidly easy to get it thus flooding the market with equipment forcing people to drop prices and more or less causing a loss in profit due to the fees, and effectively disabling purchasing of in game items with real world money which seemed to have plagued d2.

This.

Also this isn't anything new, It's basically common sense.. As it costs money to transfer money over. Why would Blizzard pay that?

I hope this also makes it so the auction house isn't spammed by crap items thus having a mass abundant of crap items flooding the place.

I'll only use in game gold for in game items, I don't really care about this, or gold farmers. I'll get everything I need for the game, in the game, by playing, and when I can't, get it from the auction house using in game gold and not real money.

More than likely no, maybe if you start making 5k+ a month you might get hit up with something for taxes but that's unlikely.

The flat fee and 10 item at a time limit will prevent that.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you,

Because it's always online. I know and undsertand why, and if it was MP only I would have no qualms with it, but the SP portion of the game is where I get my hunches in bunches biggrin.gif.

I played through the open beta and I like the style and some of the changes they made (still dont get the skill system reduction and everything, but I havent done a lot of reading to understand it, coming from D2 it made no sense to me), and if they offer another f2p weekend or something I'll play again, but I don't want to purchase the game (even though everyone else and their mothers will) because I don't want to vote for the always-online system.

I have purchased every game up to SC2 from blizzard( and played WoW for a few years). They lost a loyal customer frown.gif.
