After just under two years of business, the Diablo III auction house is closed.
Its for the best.
I'd say so. The game is much better on consoles. I hope this helps to turn the PC title in the console direction.
Its better now than the console version, on consoles you can dupe items easily and that destroys the whole trading system of D3.
They wanted to skim money off the top of auction house sales. In order to increase people buying/selling they tied stats down to gear basically killing Diablo as we knew and loved it. And now they've failed at even maintaining the auction house that the greedy SOBs wanted so badly. And yes, the game was better on consoles. Why? Because it was DESIGNED to be on consoles. And it showed. One of the very few games I'd rather play on a console than the PC.
Exactly, it was made for consoles, because of this, they had to create a console playable skill system, which is so different from Diablo 1 and 2, that it is no real Diablo anymore... The whole skill system and the need for gear with just higher stats to become better, really hurt the game. In Diablo2 you could be good enough to finish the game, with normal gear, but for PVP you needed more. You could make 1 skill stronger, while the other was weak because you just needed a bit of that skill, it basically offered so much more. In Diablo 3 alls skills are % of your Damage per Second, which is stupid, because there were no individuality.
Yup, no more Gold Sellers and the game drops good items for your class now.
PC version Reach level 40, cannot kill a single mob. Spend million gold for a slight upgrade to continue playing (just shoes btw) Game over
I think I speak for nearly ALL D3 players when I say...
Yes now give me a PS4 release date
Yes please. And second screen for inventory. PLEASEEEEE
Good, I don't even know how Blizzard was able to make a real money virtual auction house legally in the first place.
I spent money on items. I'm so sad. :(
About dam time. I'm still only going to play this when ROS comes put on PS4.
The lag still kills me. I'm holding out for the PS4 version. Sorry Tres tres.
Y'know there comes a time where you realize that you got a poor connection. Chances are you got horrendous ping, packet loss or just a bad connection in general.
And that's what I was thinking. But, I managed to get play pretty well during its initial release. I just re-installed after this 2.01 patch.
Could be an issue with the network code on the patch, had the same issue with borderlands 2
For what it's worth I picked up the PS3 version and it really is nice... like a new experience b/c there is no lag. I'm sure people with the right connections play fine.
Finally. Can't believe they even implemented something like this in a diablo game in the first place. Money money money. Wonder how much they made off of it
I do think it shouting down is for the best. It will make hardcore mode just as chalenging as it was the first time.
I get the feeling that had Blizzard never merged with Activition the real money auction house would probably never had happened.
