Firstly I'm a huge fan of Blizzard's games. I played the demo of Diablo 1 from a disk my dad brought from an expo, bought Diablo 2, Diablo 3, Starcraft, Warcraft and WOW(American, Taiwanese and Chinese version). I changed 2 computers for WOW. The day I pre-order Diablo 3 I was soooooo happy and told all my friends that this game was going to be really good, cuz it made by Blizzard.
However, this game is becoming a buy-to-win game. And for some unknown reason, I feel my item drop rate in D3 is very low these days. I levelled from paragon lvl 43-45, only about 3 legendary items dropped that worth about 20k.
Low drop rate --> Low gold income --> never afford to buy those item with crazy price tag on it.
Even worse, those good items won't be that expensive without speculators. I saw people selling 3 "The Witching Hour", Skorn and multiple "Vile Ward" at same time. I can't imagine how they farm those loot by themselves. You may say many games has speculators. In WOW, if you can not afford to buy top tier gears, you can obtain similar or slightly worse alternative from may other ways. But in D3 you can't.
Trying to stop speculators. Making some weekly events which increase item drop rate. Or creating more ways to obtain item like Hellfire Ring. So that those speculators can't pile up hot gears to raise up market price. Because market price will drop when normal players getting alternative gear from events. It increases the risk for speculator's business.
