Again, as per my previous post:
Aren't you thankful?
Yes, he should be.. the backlash should serve as a message, one that we hope is shouting at him loud and clear

Wrong... Dislikes cause something to be lowly rated.
And obviously shutting down the AHs is not going to happen.... That's why i offered a better alternative.

Just because its highly rated doesn't mean its the right thing to do. If they shut down the ingame AH's then the ingame AH's would just move to ebay and shady third party sites just like it was in D2 which wasn't a good thing. If you don't like the AH then opt not to use it simple as that.
I take my earlier post back, there's actually nothing they can add to this game to get my interest back. I only came here in case there's some data analyst who evaluates forum postings with regard to account activity in game.
If they check mine, they'll see the forum posts I've made, and about 6 months of not logging into any Blizzard games at all whatsoever. This is after being a guildmaster to a huge guild in WoW, top tier for several characters, years of a WoW sub, 300 hours in on Starcraft 2, and a Witch Doctor that didn't make it past level 40 because D3 was such a dreadful game.
Combine this with the stupid Panda expansion, SC2's expansions costing 60 bucks a piece, I mean....seriously? You only release a Terran campaign then have the audacity to charge a full game's price for Zerg and Protoss campaigns???.
Then with the blatant disregard for customer desires in D3. My Witch Doctor was a blast to play with, I had the character rolled great. I was really enjoying the playstyle, but then Jay Wilson comes along and decides I'm not playing the game like HE thinks I should play. "Witch Doctor's shouldn't be so powerful when wielded intelligently by a skilled player, he needs to go through drudgery and roll a Barbarian!".
I can't mod the damn game and I couldn't even play for the first week because of the always-online DRM.
I've established a rule, that if a SINGLE PLAYER GAME requires me to be signed in, they don't need my business. I do NOT CARE if the game is the best damned thing since sliced bread. I don't care if it truly is an exceptional game with a riveting storyline, incredible gameplay mechanics, and scores the highest metacritic+user rating ever in the history of all videogaming. If it has online DRM I have no interest in it. I don't care about how much artistic creativity and hard work goes into it at all.
We didn't get that with D3 though did we? Instead of those defining qualities that should entice people to put up with !@#$ty DRM, we get this polished turd that quickly becomes derivative and boring.
Blizzard, you've ruined my impression of you. Rob Pardo, I direct as much ire at you as I do Jay Wilson for not having the stones to stand up to you and tell you that your ideas were completely idiotic. Instead he was just a corporate "yes man" with no integrity by what you've posted here. By attempting to take the heat off of Jay, you instead paint him in the light of a weak minded suckup fool.
If your "advice" is truly what comes from the top at Blizzard, then Blizzard is a company I will never again give a cent to. Change your tune, change your thinking. Start thinking about what customers want, not what you think is best for us and best for your bottom line.
Shove all this bull%^-* up your !@#.
Grow up kids.
Seriously, grow up.
RMAH should be removed, in all honesty.
I jumped on HC a while ago, and thought to my self.. "damn I have no gold, lets check out the AH. Ah damn, I forgot, there is no RMAH, I guess I need to actually play"
I enjoyed myself much more even tho I died to lag 3-4 times. On Softcore, I could spend a measly dollar to get all the gear I need for level 1-59, and that's not enjoyable. Sure.. you can say that I don't need to use it, but its sooo EASY, that why shouldn't I use it?
I truly hope some day it will be removed. Make your money in good $40.00 expansions, not in a taxed RMAH. You're just giving botters more reason to bot.
Also, we need a reason to have white items. Why do they even drop?
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
