[Official] Diablo III Information and Discussion Thread - Page 767

post #7661 of 29804
Ya, I don't ever plan on actually spending real money on an item either, but I wouldn't mind trying to sell a few things if I find something good. Even if I make $1, that is a dollar I didn't have before.tongue.gif

I probably won't use it that much though. I have only sold 1 item on the gold house and have not purchased anything yet. Currently about half way through Act 1 Hell. I refuse to buy my items and prefer to use what I find.

with that in mind.... i very doubt the RMAH will go anywhere, specially with the 15% cut that blizzard eats from your earning
so, i'm sure we'll still see most of the good items listed by 2 billion in game Gold in AH, than $200 of RMAH, because no should be dumb enough to spend that kind of money for stuff you can get using in game Gold

You do have the option to cash it out to your PayPal account or Battle.net account. So you can get the money back -fees associated.

You can get the money back into paypal. tongue.gif I think it's a $1.50 per auction, then 15 percent of what you transfer to paypal though.

There is no listing fee any more.

You can, in fact, cashout your bobby bucks to paypal, for a fee of course.

Edit: see above.

I do have beef with people claiming it's because the game has been hacked or the servers have been compromised...That they don't trust Blizzard with their money.
Blizzard posted better fiscal numbers last year than most banks.
Like I said, security wise, more beefed than most banks.

What the funk? More money != better security. You don't know what banks or Blizzard has done for security nor how much either has spent on said security. You'd need outside security specialists to come in and make comparisons before making such a silly statement.

the difference is if a bank loses your money you can actually call the federal gov't about it.

They don't risk jail time for duing items (at least currently), vs. a federal offense in hacking / stealling from a bank, there is a risk vs. benifit to consider.

Actually, I'm very good friends with their SSA...Plus a few others so, I'm very knowledgeable about their security...Also installed one of their hubs...So, again, I believe I'm more "in the know" than the 99% that actually make that statement.

Add the fact that I also helped my local bank install their security + network...Yeah, I stand by that statement, absolutely.

Blizzard has better security than most banks. Period.

I trust Blizzard with my money just as much as I trust my bank.

That being said, Blizzard doesn't actually allow me the freedom of transfer but, in terms of my money, they're legally bound both federally and at a consumer level to have just as much security, if not more, than a bank.

In fact, considering Blizzard has 100x the clientele as most banks, you could argue that their security has to be much higher considering the loss is greater than most banks.

100% if someone were to steal your money from D3 you could call law enforcement about it. Theft is theft regardless if it is a bank robber or a computer hacker. As far as 'losing' your money, that would be fraud, which is even higher on the scale than 'theft'.
