TechSnafu - Diablo III Real Money Auction House off to a Rough Start

Diablo III has been out for over a month now, and to reinvigorate players and spark their interest in the game, as well as fulfill promises initially given before release, Blizzard released the Real Money Auction House (from this point forward referred to as RMAH) to the public. (Blizzard, Diablo III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Killed the game they dont want people to get good gear so they go to the rmah instead, about 90% quits the game cause they want to find the gear themselves not use ah and rmah. Whats left is the p2w players and bots.

Yea it certainly didn't take long for the bots to get on Diablo 3, Diablo 2 took YEARRRRS before bots invaded and destroyed everything socially-peaceful.

So it begs to question, 4 million sold? I go on Diablo 3 in the afternoon and weirdly only see 2000 people listed playing Diablo 3 and it isn't on Hardcore mode.

Lot of people are raging both for the difficulty lazy bullshit of cheap deaths, the obviously pointless DRM of never having singleplayer, it didn't prevent hacks or cheats or duping or bots from invading AT ALL. The auction house cripples the sense of wonder and discovery about any loot, loot drops in particular are lazily done because of how everything is randomized of everything, to me, set and unique items having a shit load of random specs and types just goes to show that Blizzard feels they can't make a balanced game with anything set in stone except for the CG cutscenes and their gameplay itself, everything else relating to the system of Diablo 3 is just shit and it completely is more Con than pro.

That's in the boat I'm in right now.

I have neither the time nor the funds to justify buying items off the RMAH. I've spent a total of $20 and it came back to bite me in the ass, so there's a no-go there.

It's just saddening to know that I won't be able to get past Act II Inferno (the part I'm currently stuck at) because I'm not willing to throw more money at this game then I already have. If the drop rate for actual good gear was better, I'd be more inclined to grind it out, like I did in WoW, but I'm not going to just do the same Act I Inferno run a thousand more times than I already have just to get one or two pieces of gear that MIGHT help me get through Act II.

Yea, its like, the drop rate of loot thats BETTER than what you have is so bloody low, I've not found a single unique and even if I did, in Diablo 2 am sure I'd know exactly if it'd be great or not, but most cases were if you found a set or unique, it'd be Great except for Norm drops, NM and Hell D2 drops were ALWAYS something trade-worthy and usable by a class just starting or in the middle or in the 60-70+ levels.

Diablo 3 its just, everyone will have randomized Rares that will just scale up every time you need new equipment, it's an Auction House Loot Purchasing Simulator :/ Diablo 3 teaches you stock options and buy/sell trade skills rather than lets you have Fun, fun seems to be the last thing that Diablo 3 wants you to have amongst the STILL occasional lag-attacks from their server.

totally agree with you, i'm one of the persons taht will quit very soon if nothing changes :(
but i tried everything, even in the forums but nobody does anything or even listens. I played a lot of hours and nothing good drops. And people say to me - you have to get to inferno dificulty. But if i'm not having fun anymore why the hell do i want to get there ?

Also, the fact that some people bought items with certain stats then have those items suddenly get nerf pissed off the buyers. Instead of nerfing them, blizzard should have just introduced new items with stats they wanted instead of nerfing items that have been acquired all ready. $250+ items that got nerfed... so sad.
