Quit QQing - the AH is no different from D2 trading

Otis how the hell do you expect us to trade items if we abolished AH then??
If you abolish trade then this genre of gaming turns into a mind boggling grindfest.

How would I hurt myself?

AH = bad for the youth of today.

I do not in any way want to abolish trade! I'd like to see another more social way of doing it. A less 'Item emporium' way.

A fellow posted an interesting idea the other day. Wish I could remember the title of the thread. (I'm old, and my memory flounders occasionally)

Otis do you work for a living or are you a student?

At a wild guess i'd say your a student.

Seriously, though - back to reality.

The point of this thread is that the AH and item trading are really no different. We're not trying to figure out ways to improve the game, this isn't a thread begging for blue attention. I just wanted to straighten out some people's perception of the differences (and the lack thereof) between D2 and D3 in regard to the exchange of goods.

Will you guys pretty please stop conversing with Otis? You can't reason with the unreasonable. This thread will end up as another 26 pages of his anti-AH/greed drivel.

Poking fun of him is a whole other story though :P Just enjoy him for the comedy gold that he is.


Whoop. Letting a small bit of light in to begin with will lead to more and more. Eventually, you will shine from the inside, allowing the others around you to also experience light.

You're an intelligent person. People like to follow intelligent people. It's important that you shine for them.

either way he's proof of the failed educational system.


That was not very nice, sir. If I hurt you previously, I'm sorry and will try to redeem myself.

Be well

For me and many D2 players the idea of GAH and RMAH is perfect. It gives people more time (if they so wish) to spend playing the game and spend the least amount of time possible trading. For me though this has just changed to spending time watching the economy unfold for the last few months.

I understand. I'd just like to see another way of doing it is all. Something that takes aspects of the existing AH and blends them with a more traditional approach? I dunno.

I love how this discussion brings out the hate for botters and flippers.

Botters I can see, bunch of cheaters who deserve to be tarred and feathered.

however, flipping is the basis for the RL economy and a lot of D3...buy (or make or find) low sell high

I don't care if people want to flip gear, honestly - I don't see anything wrong with it. If you want to spend your in game time working the AH instead of killing monsters, that's fine.

I also don't see it hurting the economy. Prices are still dictated by the market - if you set em too high when you try to resell, people won't buy it. If you set the price too low, another flipper will pop in and snatch your item up to resell it themselves.
