Only way this is going to work is if it's solo mode and characters can't share stash.
You're always going to find traders if there's social interaction between players.
You might as well play D1/2.
The auction house is convenient and takes out the hassle of spamming trade threads.
It works quite well for me as I don't have the patience to deal with others.
basically all items and gold are account bound.
would be pretty interesting if they have that kinda mode.
It would definitely take a longer time to progress due to limited gears but pvp would be fun since out of 100, maybe a handful of players have BiS items for every slot in his/her character.
I would love that but then again, since its basically a self-found hc what you're talking about is...
diablo player base = 100% (basically all diablo players)
diablo hc player base = 3% (only hc)
diablo 3 hc self found player base = 0.1%
To make an entire new mode for 0.1% of the player base.... Get real son !!!

Oh, you can't say that, Smithey77. The feature of the new mode is self-farm. Even you play pvp, you will only duel with players in that mode. That will attract other players to join the game. So, basically you cannot do the math in this way. Basically FC is not the subset of HC space.
Alpha, you have said it will be one life only per char hence its Hardcore, which means all the sc babies who rely on RMAH and who cant handle hc with AH and with money exchanges are out of this equation, so you already have only 3% of the playerbase to which its a relevant mode (only HC players) now even if all hc players were interested in a self-found mode its still only 3% of the player base hence not worthy (from blizzard's pov), but not even all Hc's want this hence while I think the idea is a nice one it makes no logical sense... furthermore I give you this
See, I already had the same idea a few months ago, the problem is less than 1% of the people would be interested
