It'll be pretty effective at that. They couldn't undercut the RMAH prices by more then 20 percent, otherwise they might as well sell there. At 20 percent, I think people are just going to leave their money with blizzard instead of risking a third party.

Be interesting to see if some of the people who ran those move their business onto the RMAH though. I assume the 10 item limit is to make it more annoying for them lol.

Let's put it this way, if you are staff of a real world trading site and very good at farming. Why wouldn't you just do it for yourself and make more money?

There won't be any 3rd party trading going on, it's just not profitable anymore.

Maybe. I was also thinking about the WoW AH and how people would spam 500 single crafting mats instead of stacking them. 20 pages later, you find the people that listed stuff in stacks of 5 wheee.gif.

Condoning piracy is a bad idea especially here at OCN where it is against the ToS.

I would be lying if I said that I didn't feel a bit of a letdown after playing the beta. To think that after almost 4 years since the announcement of the game until the release that my excitement and anticipation has waned, is something I never thought would happen. I played through the beta on every class multiple times and was impressed, yet not moved the same way that I was with the first 2 games. The overall feel of the game just doesn't resonate as a Diablo game with me. I didn't feel a connection the way I did when I started playing D2. I am sincerely hoping that it is just due to the small test area we were confined to in the beta. I think that newcomers to the Diablo franchise will absolutely love the game and not have the same expectations or thoughts about it as I did. I just feel that while necessary in Blizzards eyes, the changes that have been made have removed some of the fun of the game for me.
It is hard to put into words what is lacking, but we shall see.....hopefully Blizzard proves my initial worries without merit.
I do think that the concerns and complaints about a required constant internect connection to play is something that has both pros and cons. Eventually Blizzard may change their stance on it, but I highly doubt it. It will keep player base limited to Battle.net, and eliminate the Mods and private servers that were so prevalent with D2. It will HOPEFULLY slow down (doubtfully ever STOP) hackers. It will eliminate Hacked items being introduced as they were in Single player in D2. The argument Kevindd992002 mentioned has its merits also, but I don't think it is as big of an issue as some people make out of it. As it stands now, like Andygoyap mentioned you are posting and reading an online forum, more than likely while doing other activities online. To me, the whole required internet connection is irrelevant in 2012. 10-15 years ago I could see that being an issue, but not so much nowadays.
With everything said above, I will still be at the Irvine Spectrum launch event. I will still be online as soon as I get home and install. I will still play when I am on vacation celebrating my 1st anniversary of my wedding (coincidentally May 15th, lol) and my wife will be playing as well. I truly hope this is a game for the ages, and after everything is said and done a most worthy successor to the game I devoted much of the last decade to.
Please prove me fears wrong Blizzard. =D

You should post here more often. I appreciate that you have your reservations about the game but you aren't letting them stop you from playing the game. You've got a good perspective that I think a lot of people would grow fond of here.

The gold-based auction house opens its doors worldwide on May 15 with the launch of Diablo III, and we plan to bring the real-money auction house online approximately one week after that.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
How is the transaction fee determined?
In the gold-based auction house, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the final sale price of a successful auction.
In the real-money auction-house, for equipment such as weapons and armor, a fixed transaction fee will be deducted from the seller for each piece of equipment successfully sold. This fee is assessed only if the item is sold. For commodities such as crafting materials, gems, gold, and other “stackable” items, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the total sale price. Specific details related to the transaction fee for each real-money auction house are as follows:
Quote:
Note that sending proceeds to PayPal will be subject to an additional 15% transfer fee if the auction succeeds, calculated based on the amount being transferred. Note that additional fees from PayPal may apply.

Quote:
Does Blizzard plan to post weapons, armor, and other such items for sale in the real-money version of the auction house?
The currency-based auction house is a place for players to purchase or sell items they’ve obtained within the game. Blizzard does not plan to post items that affect gameplay in the auction house directly.
Certainly not directly, but perhaps a remote employee that "finds" the best items? sad-smiley-002.gif

I don't think you are, but you shouldn't assume that Blizzard is indirectly adding items to the AH. We shouldn't assume one way or another but I think you'd be making poor assumptions if you think they have remote employees that "find" the best items and post them in the AH.

IIRC the fee is $1.25 smile.gif

This is just more confirmation to me that I should and will be using D2JSP for the majority of my trading. $1.25 transaction fee, 15% cash out fee + additional PayPal fees? Sounds worse than selling real world products on eBay.

JSP? No fees. No, I can't transfer forum gold to actual dollars but I can certainly accumulate thousands of fg, take that fg and purchase high-end items and then sell those in the AH. Still taking a huge hit with all those fees though.

Do you know what D2JSP is? It is a third party item trading website that has its own currency called forum gold. At one point it was the 2nd or 3rd most popular forum on the planet and I'm betting that activity on that forum is going to explode again shortly after DIII releases. I can practically guarantee D2JSP will be huge again. Mind you it still is very, very active.

Heh I'm just joking about Blizz having someone post items for them... mostly.

Haha, yeah. Nothing wrong with Blizzard employees posting items on the AH as long as they legitimately acquired them. smile.gif

How many videos did you watch of Diablo 2 before you starting playing? How much did you know about the game? Did you already have builds pre-made for it?

Part of the whole experience is entering into the game without knowing everything about it. Fear, fear of the unknown, the emotions you get from the music, and enemies that apear out of no where. You will not feel that same way playing D2 now, because you know even more about it, and it is very familiar.

If anyone wants a similar experience, stop watching the videos, and stop reading about Diablo 3, it will feel infinately more special then. Instead of watching videos on D3, I would re-familiarize yourself with the lore of D1 and D2.

I enjoyed this reddit post:
part 1: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments/sqhuw/the_story_so_fara_recount_of_what_has_happened/
part 2: http://www.reddit.com/r/diablo3/comments/sr5yj/the_story_continues_prolog_and_events_of_diablo_i/
part 3: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments/ss8ow/the_story_continues_part_3diablo_2_events_and/
part 4: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments/suc9q/the_story_continues_part_4diablo_ii_lord_of/

I really enjoyed the feel of Diablo 3, that knockback and physics adds a whole new level of imersion, the beta was only 5% of nromal, there is so much more of the game left, gems for one, and more abilities, smarter enemies, etc. I for one really look forwards to may 15th.
