One thing to keep in mind is that Diablo III is a global game, available in multiple regions around the globe. And, across those regions, the decimal style varies.
In the US, for example, decimals are identified with periods (ex: 1.23). Whereas in a lot of places in Europe, decimals are identified with commas (ex: 1,23). This means that a number like one million would look a bit different in each of those regions. In the US, it would look like "1,000,000" and in Europe it would look like "1.000.000".
So, which decimal style do we use? That question is actually one of the main reasons we chose not to include commas initially, since it could be confusing to players in other regions outside North America.
That said, we do agree that not having any method of breaking out values in the auction house isn't ideal, so we're currently discussing how best to address the issue (without hopefully creating MORE issues for players in other countries).
Im sorry but this is just LOLAGE material right here and also insulting at the same time.
Im sure your player base have the intellect to distinguish that 1.000.000 and 1,000,000 is the same? Or maybe not.
I think this so called dilemma proves what blizzard thinks of its player base, which is _____ (afraid of another ban)?
Im not a retard.
