How does the game need to be rebalanced if the current balance makes Blizzard the more money than what you are proposing?

Anyway, I know at least a few people who have completed the game on inferno that haven't touch the AH.

Well, AH doesn't make Blizzard any money, since it uses in game resource ie gold. RMAH will change that when it will get released.
post #265 of 279
Even now it makes them money.

A portion of the more aggressive players are playing Diablo III to farm. My brother probably wouldn't have purchased the game if he wasn't planning on collecting items to sell in the RMAH.

Also, more casual players who don't want to grind out key items may well be more attracted to the game because they can trade gold for them conveniently in the standard AH.

So, it's not just about the fee Blizzard will take, it's about attracting more people to the game. After all, you don't have to use the AH, so it's existence isn't going to discourage anyone.

Stands for Real Money Auction House. Currently you can buy and sell items for gold. Blizzard is planning on implementing one where you buy and sell for real money, and Blizz takes a flat $1.50 per sale. The auction house system is currently too buggy for them to risk the real cash on it, so it might be awhile before they roll that out.

OH! and You are breaking TOS here: "THe only playable, pirated version of Diablo III is horrid right now. ALl you can do is walk around, spawn zombies, you can't talk to NPC's, attack, level up, or do anything" Proving you DID pirate the game and are giving your opinion.
So.. Why do you who speaks against GoG.Com think that your opinion matters?


Ever think he watched youtube videos of it, and didn't download it?

There is no proof that he pirated anything, just a reason for suspicion. Perhaps he read about it on a news site, too. There are many ways to get this kind of information without downloading it.
