Hold on a minute. You mean Blizzard wants to keep people playing its game? This is an outrage!
You're missing the point. They are doing in a very lame and shady way. If the game was fun and good they wouldn't have to try to keep people playing.
here's my tldr...
you and a bunch of ppl who put a3 and 4 on farm used every exploit possible to get it on farm status in the very first place. i.e. Act skip/goblin farm with checkpoints whatever you wanna put there. Drops came to you and the rest of ppl, who exploited game to hell, at so much ease, gold flow was pretty much unlimited, the inflation destroyed the AH for newcomers.
All Blizzard needed to do is wipe everything completely, but ofc such move would be to radical, so they nerfed everything to slow down gold influx from bots or whatever - i suppose least they can do, which only punished legitimate players.
Oh, sorry they nerfed your drop rates, so you could not make any more off RMAH.
As for why they changed this, my gut feeling is that the overall the same number of ilvl 62-63 gear will enter the game economy, it's just that they'll be spread among more players.
I stopped reading right here:
"Bots were crushing jars and looting dead adventurers making 500k + gold / hour"
Nephalem Valor guaranteed rares = Smoke Bomb, blinding you from the truth. The rate at which high-end (high iLvl) items are introduced to the game has been nerfed overall.
