D3 ladders are such a terrible, terrible idea. I wish this thought could be eradicated from the minds of those that think it.
Why is it a terrible idea? It would be a refresh.
If you have never played a ladder reset in d2, you wouldn't understand.
The only way this could work is no AH and even then it wouldn't work becausse ppl could still use other sites. You do know they sell gold on the RMAH right? Hard Core ladder would be the only possible way.
I guess you don't understand...
The current state of the game would be considered non-ladder...
With ladder, all players who wanted to play on ladder, would have to make new toons. The Ladder would not have a RMAH, only GAH. RMAH would stay on non-ladder.
With PvP coming out, there are lots of people frustrated with the pay2win model. If they had a ladder system, PvP wouldn't be pay2win, it would be play 2 win which is what people want.
I know that 3rd party sites would still sell "ladder gold" but when you involve a 3rd party site only and blizzard not allowing the RMAH on ladder, you limit the amount of people willing to go to a 3rd party site and thus you have less people spending money meaning pay2win is a minimum.
I will never play PvP in this game because I don't want to feel the frustration of losing to someone that used their credit card...
