Diablo® III

Item destroying has got to stop!

(Locked)

This is somewhat related to item flipping but of a far more sinister kind.

So say, there are players who are ranked top 50 by diablo3progress.

They are bored to death of farming paragon, and they can't really see any immediate upgrades.

So what they do is sit in AH all day long, flip items left and right till they finally see a gfg once-in-a-month item.

And so they pour all their gold into acquiring said item, which isn't even an upgrade to them, and what do they do?

If its an upgrade, they wear it. If not? They immediately salvage the item to ensure its removed from the economy, ensuring their gear remains top-notch and they stay in the top ranks of diablo3progress for a long time to come. Else they salvage their old gear.

Flip items if you want. Make profits if you want. But stop destroying gfg items!

Lol and how would u like me to show you proof?

A written-statement from said item destroyer?

A list of accused?

A video showing a flipper salvaging his item?
yeah, what? I do this in real life. I flip houses and cars and the ones that are really awesome but not quite as awesome as mine, I destroy so that nobody can have them. Oh yeah, I do this with hot women, too.

Interesting idea but I can't imagine anyone in the top 50 even has enough income or time to constantly babysit the AH 24/7 (not to mention hordes of sites where people can arrange an in-game trade).

Hell, even if all 50 colluded to try this, they wouldn't succeed. I'm not saying it's never been done (i.e. tried) but they aren't successful. Most of those top 50 got there by loads of donations from stream monsters.

This would not surprise me. But i think they would rather just store the item.

this makes a whole lot more sense, to just store it on a mule.
ah... the game is indeed about item collecting, not a socialist experiment.

I am so surprised that there are people that agree with the post starter that top players are destroying super good item just to stay top?

1. Being top position in diablo3progress vs selling USD250 per item ?
2. If you are about to say they don't care about money, they care about the achievement, well...How many people can actually say : "money is just a number to me, doesn't matter at all in my life" ?

i will give you one word.

Stupid.
