In fact I love Diablo III so much i have spent about $400 already in RMTAH to get good gears
wish i could see your profile to see these "good gears". no offence intended, im just curious.
rmah would be ok if there was a 20$ max limit, but items for $50...$100....$250..simply not worth it, .no thanks. id rather take the missus out to a restaurant, i work to hard to waste my $$$ on virtual pixels.
Either way, how much money other players choose to spend on any amount of items does not and cannot affect me and my gameplay experience so im not too bothered.
My opinion is that in a game such as Diablo, where the only reason i play is to find items to use, simply buying them is a shortcut that defies my very reason for playing, though i accept that not all people play diablo for the same reasons as me.
Theres no way a virtual item, that as blizz states "item properties and values may change overtime due to game balancing" is worth money.
The VERY stat you buy an item for can be deleted or "nerfed" by the company when they feel it becomes overpowered or too widely used. If im gonna pay for something id expect it to remain the way i bought it. imagine buying a Ferrari then after a few months the company comes and modifies it to there desire, not yours, it simply wouldn't happen as its your property, you own it. Virtual blizzard items, no matter how much you pay, remains their property
my 2 cents.
