For every idea you have and suggest for blizzard to do, you need to ask yourself, in what way will this effect real money profits for blizzard. At the moment with the massive influx of illegitimate gold, the IGG AH is an undesirable place to trade really. Fixing it and making it a desirable place to trade would take at least a small fraction of business away from the RMAH. And that would be bad for $.
The whole way through my progression, I would make a half dozen levels, then go on the ah spend a few gold and upgrade all my gear, by entering the current stats of my gear and a maximum buyout, and then just buying whats best in my price range... I continued that up until 60, when i probably spent around 200-300k upgrading my gear. Then i got a bit into inferno and went back to the ah to look at upgrading again, and whilst putting in the stats of my current gear realised that everything had gone up about 10X in price minimum. In the space of about three days my 18k blue rings were priced over 500k. My weapon would have fetched up near a mil i paid 50k for it....
Every item of my own gear i looked at was worth a fortune...and there is no way im going to be able to farm 50 million gold in any reasonable amount of time to upgrade...probably just my weapon. You know what that encourages me to do?
Yeah you guessed it...look at the RMAH.
Blizzard is the devil.
