This is a new trend and I really doubt Blizzard will be the one to abuse it the most.
I'm sorry for calling you a tard... it was for added emotion. tongue.gif

I wouldn't be surprised to see another developer create a free to play game that ONLY used a real money auction house and they got a % of every sell. You would have to make sure the game had a system that encouraged lots of trading and then you could bring in a lot of money. The difference between that and D3 is that D3 still has a AH that uses in game currency..

What do you think Titan will be...? :O

D3 is the testing ground for the RMAH. If it's successful they'll put it in Titan, and possibly, eventually WoW when it goes free to play.

Edit: Also went into Gamestop on Saturday and paid off my CE in full. Just gotta show up at midnight on May 15th and give them my phone number thumb.gif

Starting to wish I bought from GS instead of amazon, but then again I will still have to work that day and it doesn't matter if I go get it at midnight, I just hope it is delivered before I get home.

I forgot about them working on Titan tongue.gif. I think trying to transition WoW's already established AH when/if it goes free to play would be too difficult. I could be wrong.

Not that difficult...

I'm at a loss as to why everyone is so hooked on having their own physical copy. You can't even play the game if Blizzard shuts down it's servers... Think green and just omit buying a physical copy... I'll be at my PC on release among the first ones in regardless. rolleyes.gif

Not sure what thinking green has to do with buying a physical copy of the game.

I pre-ordered the CE a few months ago and I cannot wait to pick it up. smile.gif

I won't be playing at midnight anyways, since I have work starting at 7 AM that morning...and I won't have the patience to deal with the (probable) server issues.

I will be taking a shortened day though, as Amazon usually delivers to my house by noon...be home by 1-2, play all day the 15th, took the next day (16th) off for this. Sounds like a much better plan to me...not to mention, I already downloaded the full client (7.60GB from Blizzard servers), so all i'll need is my CE key on the afternoon of the 15th and whatever day 1 patch, and i'll be online within 30 minutes of my being home. thumb.gif

Also...the CE in-game exclusive items are awesome. The Dyes and the Angelic wings look really cool.

I'm hoping the 500k people they had in the open beta weekend will be accurate as to what it will be like come release day. I also heard they were running those 500k people and over 200k games simultaneously on one server redface.gif

Edit: you guys been to Diablo3.com today? Has the fire along the top of the page always been there? o_O

Edit2: Here is a new interview with Jay. Some great info in there. He mentions talk of a previous class idea of Illusionist. Also he talks about BattleNet 2.0, and how it needs work.

Quote:
Wilson: Our plan for Battle.net has always been to turn it into something more of a social network than just a platform for starting games. I don’t think it’s there yet, I don’t think it’s even close. I think you can look at it – we’ve got a lot of criticism from people saying that in a lot of ways it’s not even as good as Diablo II. While I would put forward things like cross-game chat and the quick-join capabilities, match-making – things that just didn’t exist in Diablo II, things that I think are more powerful than what you had – but I don’t think they’re wrong.

I think there are some things that we could be better at. We could be better at getting players into chat channels together, we could be better at allowing people to show gear off to one another. So those are problems that I do think we need to look at and continue to solve, but I [also] think that’s the great thing about working at Blizzard. As I said earlier, I don’t have to look at this game as being done, I can say, “Yeah, those are good points, those are things we should make better.”

I'm certainly happy they aren't completely ignoring the community's unanimous request for better chat interface and channels.
