More oxymoron please

As you didn't read my post, I never said I wouldn't use the AH, however I'm not one of those people who purchase gold to gear their character or flip items to afford them. Which were the kind of people I was talking about.good video, I agreed with most of it. Here is my $.02:
1. It's not just lazy rich people, but people with lots of disposable income as well.
2. Due to #1, this kind of system promotes all the wrong things and in turn creates a poor community and poor playerbase.
2a. Pertaining to Diablo 3, this is how microtransactions/in-game economy hurt the bottom line:
TL; DR. But I did have time to click on your profile. You have a lot of great items for someone who clearly wouldn't DREAM of using the Auction House. Perhaps itemisation is not so bad after all?
Actually it's the gold auction house that's the reason for the crappy game economy. Gold can be botted, but real money can't. Even Jay Wilson alluded to that. What Blizzard SHOULD have done, was not install the AH, but also not make 3rd party trading (like selling items for real money) a bannable offense.04/01/2013 09:35 AMPosted by xxxLawDogxxxIts not the hard working or rich folks fault that Blizz made it possible to purchase its items for real money. The RMAH is the true reason for the crappy game economy.

If you allow trading outside D3 for real money, aren't we back to where we are right now though?Not necessarily because the 3rd party market exists outside of the game. Whatever happens outside of the game has nothing to do with Blizzard. Blizzard doesn't have to factor the AH or the economy into any changes. You'll always have people who purchase items for money so whether or not it's allowed, people will do it anyways.
04/01/2013 12:07 PMPosted by NBradpeople seem to forget that D2 items were NEVER sold for anything more than like 10 bucks at the very most. most items, even the great ones, were sold on ebay for less than a dollar. it's NOTHING like the D3 RMAH we have today.

Uh early on things definitely sold for more than 10 bucks. A lot of the crazy stuff on JSP went for FG amounts that converted to hundreds of dollars. The only reason gear got so cheap as things went on was the massive amount of duping that was easily done in d2 hahaha.
proof or be quiet.
