I just bid on an item in the AH and after lagging severely, it took my gold and didn't give me the item. Is there any hope of retrieving any of it?

This has been going on for days, yet all accounts are not being effected. Have they responded at all to this issue?

Nope, they just keep getting 100's of complaints in here about it, nothing said or done.


ya ive noticed this lag for a bit now as well. last couple days have been really bad though for me and made me take notice of it. in addition to the lag the AH has been giving me i have been getting random red lag in game as well. this normally doesnt happen to me! the blizz servers definitely have something wrong :<

Due to my job I've been on both coasts of the US over the last week. I've connected to many different providers, and the AH is lagging everywhere. It's not regional.

Right now it's barely usable. Anyone know if there's been an acknowledgement of the problem and a plan of action to get it resolved? Like it or not, for most people still playing the AH is a big part of the game...

I've been having the same problem too. I think it's because of the PTR. Last time there was PTR I had the same problem + gameplay lag. Once it was over it was gone. I wish they would take away PTR for D3.

Same problem. Seems like it's getting worse. It's particularly bad on the RMAH

ptr is a good thing.
however. normally they have different servers to run the ptr and live.
if its PTR thats lagging things that is very bad. i wouldnt put it passed them to try to run d3 with minimal resources though since its unsubbed. its probably running on ancient servers. which probably why we have so much trouble with instability and lag in the first place.

My favorite part about the Tech Support forums is it's a bunch of people stating they have a problem and no one that counts ever replies. It's just like the AH. Unresponsive.

Auction house is absolutely terrible right now. Takes upwards of 30 seconds sometimes just to refresh lists.

Like Freddy said, its been laggy for a week. On top of the slow AH response I'm seeing weird results on the search tab. It'll show 5+ pages of results but when you look at some of the pages they'll be half empty. Instead of the normal 10 or so items on the page there'll be 3 or five or some other random amount. No amount of refreshing the search or paging back/forth thru the tabs fixes it.

In Australia if it matters.
