Charge 15% more? Problem solved.

That's one of the reason why 15% tax is necessary..=)

Same thing was said when we switched from the Gold Standard. Did anything change? No, real money is just as fake as Diablo gold.

So with that in mind.... what's your point? Mad about a "tax" that was no secret? Must be some special breed of moron to be surprised by the obvious. Go spend your 85mil, and sthu.

I wish!!!...

that sale alone gives you more than twice what I have in stash......

grow up ..suck it up......and quit whining about your 85mill gold!!!!..

to get 100 million gold after tax, just take 100,000,000 and divide it by .85, and round up to the nearest whole number.. you will have the 100,000,000 + the 15% that will get taken off, leaving you with 100 million after tax

Edit: I do that for all of my auctions...I even have an excel sheet setup to do it quickly

america's education system failing once again.

yeah hahaha , hes losing gold fast if he keeps up with that formula hahaha , (price*1.15) is the right formula to get your whatever millions after taxes.

wanna tissue ?

here it is

here it is

Gold sink and so u don't have friends bid up items cos they may win them and u lose 15%.

Honestly, what the hell are you smoking? It's been in place since launch, and servers a valid purpose as people have already explained.

Seriously? I cannot believe two people in a row failed simple mathematics. Let's use our equations, girls.

If I want to get about 100 gold from an auction after tax, here is the equation to figure out how much to sell an item for. You can check the math with enough intelligence in your gear.

(100 * 20) / 17 = c

Here it is giving you an integer value so you can actually get about the right amount.

INT( (100 * 20) / 17 ) + 1 = c

>> this gives you 118 as shared on Wolfram|Alpha

Now let's reverse it. Take the 118 and subtract 15% of it. How do we do that? We can multiply by 0.85 or 17/20 (that's 85 / 100 for you kids at home).

(118 * 17) / 20 = 100.3

`http://wolfr.am/YyJIA2`

You could have also used 118 * 0.85

- -- --- -- - -- --- -- - -- --- -- - -- --- -- - -- --- -- -

100 / 0.85 = c <--- multiply both sides by 0.85

100 = c * 0.85

It's like freaking magic!

The whole * 1.15 thing is what you'd use to figure out your bill after taxes on buying an item. If you are taxed 15 cents per dollar (that's 15%) for your item. You'd multiply by 1.15.

$0.99 * 1.15 = $1.14

or in the state of Tennessee

We'd pay 9.25% tax so

$0.99 * 1.0925 = $1.08

The rich need to pay their fair share. This is America, get use to it!

01/27/2013 04:10 PMPosted by HerbdoctorInflation control in a game that has 10+ websites selling botted gold for $2/ten million.... Makes zero sense to charge a real player who takes his time to have fun in the game IMO. I would like to see the explanation from a blue. The truth. not some cop-out remark.

"The truth. Not some cop-out remark."

At what point will you stop being a baby? People have already told you that it is a gold sink... Do you think there is some kind of conspiracy where they are taxing all players 15% on transactions and giving it Blizzard staff or something?

We'd probably be paying monthly fees to keep servers up with the amount of flipping that would be going on, LOL.

Pretty sure that OP is no longer watching this thread, most likely because he's ashamed.

.. this statement left me totally speechless. Talk about irony.

Enlighten us, on great genius, how exactly does taxing gold make money for Blizzard?

This response made me sad. I'll try to keep it simple so those with like mind's can understand.

I sell on AH for 100 mill, i get 85, blizz gets 15 got that?

Blizz sells 15 on rmah to buyer for real money. Blizz makes money.

No end of stupidity on forums.

You are the best troll of all time. You nearly made me wet myself, and I think I need to just go back to bed and cry myself to sleep because of the POSSIBILITY you might be serious.

10/10 sir
