Auction House is horrifically broken

I placed an item in the AH. 400k Buyout.

Its a Legendary. There are only 2 pages of auctions for this Legendary.

This was 24 hours ago.

Still not sold.... Why?? Lowest current Buyout for this Legendary is 500k.

...

My item ISN'T EVEN IN THE AH!!!

Its taking up a place out of the 10 (disgustingly) low number of auctions allowed and it somehow doesn't even exist in the AH at all.

And i can't even cancel the auction to place it back in there.

How many other items of mine don't "exist" in the AH? Can blizzard please for the love of god fix the AH.

(before anyone replies with something silly there are only 2 pages of auctions for this Legendary, i'm not just "blind" or somehow "missing it", its not there, its in an alternate dimension)

edit 1 - Yep just as i suspected i've found another of my auctions that don't exist in the AH. Do any of my auctions exist in the AH?

What REALLLY bothers me is if they know its going to happen why not just take everything off the AH and let us then re-list it all? Its now just sitting there taking up my 10/10 auctions for no reason.

Shameful blizzard.

Is this what we should expect with the RMAH as well? Where real money is on the line?

Same here, yesterday it was going quite well but now I still haven't sold anything, 10/10 items still in AH. My items aren't listed either. Hope they'll fix it soon.

Looks like items that are over 5 hours old (from the time of this post) are not showing up on the AH.

Were you ever able to find your own item on the AH? Maybe it's intended?

Well the AH is currently unavailable for me. Maybe they are doing work on it.

I however doubt its intended.

When i posted this item 24 hours ago i undercut the market by a good 100k to be the lowest so it could sell ASAP.

I am still (or should be) the lowest by FAR but its not there.

you r not the only one, tons of threads on this issue already~~

Blizzard has shut the AH down~~But dont expect any improvements. I am a CS master grad. Distributed Database + concurrency is very very difficult to deal with~~ esp in a scale of multi-millions~~

Their AH database doesnt even meet the basic ACID(atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) database design principle~~

I was able to get into the AH just now and can confirm that you can find you're own items by searching in the AH. A fresh auction i posted about 4 hours is searchable. Its a rare and can be found easily by me.

These older posts cannot be found.

The bug is definitely real and not something intended.

Of course, the Auction House is down one more time.
This is getting to be rather absurd!
Blizzard has sorely disappointed me with this game; the mechanics are terrible (DPS mechanic allows nearly any weapon to be applied to nearly any hero for maximum damage), the storyline and numerous bosses/quests have been re-hashed with very little explanation or development (oh look, Deckard Cain has been captured again, let's go save him and fight the Skeleton King, who appeared in one of the first dungeons of D1. Oh, and then let's go kill the Butcher, who, guess what, was ALSO in one of the first dungeons of D1), no PvP arena...
And a broken Auction House!
It seems like Blizz would have enough AH experience through previous game endeavors to be able to knock this out of the park.
12 years, and this is what they decide to put out: a half finished re-hashing of D1 and D2 with an updated graphics engine, fail in-game mechanics, and a broken AH.

Edit 1: Not to mention all of the cool things they took OUT of the game! Does anyone recall the feeling of finding or trading for that last necessary rune to complete your Runeword, dropping it in the socket, and getting perfect stats? Awesome!
Not in D3 at all.

I figured the AH would work just find on release, since it was tested like crazy on the beta? Question mark?

I guess not. It's pretty sad when we have to rely on the AH to progress through content and we can't even use the damn thing cause it doesn't work!!!!

Couldn't have said it better myself. Blizzard this truly is pathetic.

yea... bigggest thing that irks me is they DON'T SAY ANYTHING. UPDATE ANYONE ON WHAT IS GOING ON. SERIOUSLY how can you run a game or business or anything with this kind of communication when crap is hitting the. Absurd and poor. Put a freaking intern on your PR.

Bought several items yesterday and watched the drama unfold on these forums for a couple of hours afterwards. I was annoyed, but not terribly worried, as at least the purchases showed up on my completed log. My hope was that even though I was out the cash I'd spent at that moment, I'd eventually get my items.

Logged in to check on it this morning though, and the purchases are no longer in my completed log... and none of the gold has been refunded.

Get your !@#$ together, Blizzard.
