- The guy doing the interview loaded the question and the Blue responded in a way that could satisfy the guy by stating what was already being done on the PC.
I think I stated that but I'll assume you missed it. So here you go...So the better loot, less drop approach was already applied since the AH was removed. This makes total sense. If you have an economy and all good loot drops lot you would have a more well balanced game, but the AH transactions would be minimal and very little profit. Why pay for something you can farm? Blizzard enjoyed the WOW monthly fee for years and KNEW 100% that if they did that to diablo it would Fall Flat on its Face. So they secretly designed a game in a way that worked for them, but inherently hurt the "Game" It's self and probably didnt plan on it, or intentionally do it. Instead their trying to find a way to fix it without loose there monthly income, but in this game world. Its just not possible to have both. Hense why diablo is doing real bad and more than 85% of the users who bought it have stopped playing.
Your tin foil hat is on a little too tight.
They made the AH because they wanted to encourage players to use the tools within the game instead of going to 3rd-party sites that simply cause problems to the players and, retroactively, their customer service team (kinda like how people don't understand that HC death is HC death regardless of lag). I'm pretty sure that's been explained to death already.
Your laughable theory on the whole AH thing falls flat just by the mere fact that there isn't any AH on the consoles... Oh noes! How are the evil Blizzard going to get their money now?
Here's another revelation for you: If Blizzard is evil and made the AH specifically to make money from you... why were you stupid enough to fall for it?
Your trolling, and your argument is mute. You can say what ever you want. The proof is right there. They even said it. They designed both games differently and for them to take a different approach PROVES what we all know.
