Calm down kid...just because you say its so doesn't make it true do matter how many times you claim it. Its easy to say I don't have to prove anything on the Internet isn't it. Exactly why am I a troll or flaming again? I'm trying to have an adult conversation...


Anyone who keeps saying ok Kid is not very mature. So that throws adult conversation out the window. You assume to many things. You have brought nothing to this discussion except flaming other post. Its ok. Calm down. Bring something to the topic or maybe do some more research.

The most expensive item sold in this game was a Echoing Fury. Went for 40bil gold. 7500 Euros. or 11k USD that's right 11,000. bucks. That's just 1 item bet he isn't having a great year making a living on diablo too right ?

Uh uh. Why don't you start calling him !@#$%^ while you're at it?You insult people, then insult them again when they give you what you wanted (proof of income from AH), and continue spewing garbage. You're either a troll, or an idiot. Won't tell you which one I picked


Pretty much hit the Nail on the head there. Thankyou and have a nice day :)

They might not be getting paid but they do make a few thousand a month playing the game thanks to the RMAH. I'd consider them pro's even if all they do is AH flip.

To each their own though.

Here's another one that's acting childish...I called him a kid because that's how hes acting and that's like calling him a troll, f.aggot, idiot, etc...wow, you Internet tough guys are all the same.

PS; I also see him trying to back track saying somebody sold something this one item at some time for this amount equals "making a living" at it vs. making short term money. Apparently neither of you understand the meaning of the phrase. peace...

After 34 Years of playing games(actually been playing since BEFORE ATARI ..remember intelevision? Started playing games in 1979) ....i think those of us with 15 years or more with dedicated gameplay experience have the right to consider ourselves PRO....put ur time in put the work in...and you will get there...alot of the vets have also contributed to MODS beta testing games etc...don't automatically assume just bc the PRO word is thrown around alot that it doesnt apply to a lot of gamers out there

How does it need to be phrased for you to understand?

I make over a grand each month which pays all the bills for my girlfriend and I with cash to spare. If you can't make a living off that then maybe your bills and spending is stupidly too high.

Many people do "make a living" off of "short term money" transactions.


Sorry, that you don't get it either. Example, making a living such as a carpenter, plumber, network admin, engineer, etc. that you can sustain for the duration of your adulthood. I'll even give you the insurance is optional thing. Do you think D3 is going to be paying your bills in 6 months and or pay the same amount ever moth...and be honest? Also, if you need to play D3 to pay bills then I feel sorry for you as maybe that extra cash could be put towards schooling?

PS: I could pay bills for several months doing pc repair on the side, yes...but could I do it for a living without the steady income, no. That's why I call it short term money or income.

Only 34 years of playing games? I started with Candyland back in 1970... Remember Candyland? Then I moved on to Chutes and Ladders.. I am also PRO.

Well I never acted childish you started with the Kid talk. Anyways 11,000 dollars is not short term money. That enough to live on for some time for a lot of people. Just saying if 11,000 for 1 item where do you think that player is at total for the year?

Once again you assume to much without information and try and pass judgement like you are always right and never wrong. Which makes it impossible to have a actual conversation with you. I am trying to continue to talk about this post cause I think its interesting. Hopefully it stays interesting and doesn't get overwhelmed by the flames.

11k USD, wow, that'll buy a used Ford Escort and lunch. I wonder how much of that he put in his 401k and how much of it went towards his health care, heat, gas, food, clothing, housing etc... This is probably another person with a wife that has a real job. She was probably thrilled he got the 11k, because it was probably the first big check he's seen in decades that didn't say 'unemployment' on it.


That I don't know. What I do know is which are some interesting facts. The 1300dps 100% crit open socket that he sold for 11k cash. He sniped it off the RMAH for 250bucks from some guy who probably needed to pay rent or short on cash. Talk about making the best out of someone elses situation.

Also interesting the Barb that bought that 11k cash EF uses it for his Off Hand.

Among consumers, seven in 10 can be classified as gamers. Half of U.S. gamers bought virtual items last year, and one-third of the 600 gamers surveyed overall for the study. The average spent was $64 in 2011. U.S. male gamers were almost twice as likely as their female counterparts to purchase these virtual goods.

This is ridiculous. I hate to see an interesting topic go down like this. Put those idiots on ignore and lets continue to debate.

Anyways. Over here in AZ, you can get a nice 1-bdr apartment with lots of amenities for 580. Triple that for the income requirement and that's 1740/mo. I've seen a few people capable of making anywhere from 3000-5000 a month so when you look at it like that, it's MORE than enough, at least for a bachelor like me.

That one item that went for 11,000 can pay for rent like this for 19 months! That's insane, that's over a year off of one item!

They just don't get what "making a living" means. I was talking about making a living off of D3 now they branch out and bring up "one can make a living off of short term transactions"...LOL so D3 isn't long term and they move on. I don't even know what that means, no steady job, what? Does he mean stock broker??? How are you going to have kids, insurance, cars...you can pay your bills off of unemployment but you can't make a living off of it, because well it runs out, just like D3 will...I can't believe I even have to argue this point. Good luck with retirement.

Online gaming will pay the bills while being fun and easy forever. It isn't going to go away.

VIRTUAL GOODS SALES HIT $2.3 BILLION

Among consumers, seven in 10 can be classified as gamers. Half of U.S. gamers bought virtual items last year, and one-third of the 600 gamers surveyed overall for the study. The average spent was $64 in 2011. U.S. male gamers were almost twice as likely as their female counterparts to purchase these virtual goods.

Diablo 3 is one of many games people like myself make money off of and the money to be made will never run out. Going to college isn't for everyone. People like myself, prefer to own their own house and vehicle before the age of 25. Never going into extreme debt from student loans is a bonus as well. Don't hate and learn to accept that there is more options than overpaying for an "education" and then punching a time clock.

The ones who are truly the richest are those with the most free-time. Making money while having fun goes hand-in-hand with success.

I'm working on plans in the future for entrepreneurship involving starting a gaming store in my town and further creating economic growth for my future family. My plans for Diablo3 in 2013 is to save money for my marriage. It feels good paying for everything in full instead of going in debt like most people.

If you think going to college after school then working hard for the rest of your life is the only path, then you are really closed-minded.


If you think you're going to create a gaming store, and economic growth for your family without 'working hard', then you're already on the wrong track.

Wake up. Making money off of online gaming will not run out. The potential grows every year. It is a booming business. Many people have found ways to make a living off of it and you just choose to ignore evidence. Paying the bills consistently every month with money to spare while having fun the whole time is better than the "steady jobs" you mention. I've never once got a dime from unemployment because my paypal transactions count as income. I pay taxes just like the rest of you but the difference is I don't lose any money from student loan interest, or house payments, etc. My house costs around 2,000 in taxes and 700 in insurance per year fully owned and payed for. That is 225 per month and I rent out 3 of the bedrooms for $650 per month. My own home pays for itself including any repairs it may need like the new plumbing It needed 4 months ago.

Being economically efficient is more valuable than a college degree.


That's fantastic for you but wtf does that have to do with making a living off of D3? So the truth comes out that you have supplemental income...wow
