I really, really wish they would lower the AH cap. It would really crystallize the itemization problem for everyone.
04/28/2013 09:49 PMPosted by OverkillThose who don't want the cap raised are the ones who don't have enough gold anyway to afford anything gg. So why would it matter to you all if cap is raised?? You wont be buying any of that gg gear anyway.
You don't get it. USE THE CAP TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. If they raise the cap, do you realize that someone else will just bid higher than you that has even massively more gold than you do? Then what else are you going to complain about?04/28/2013 09:49 PMPosted by OverkillThose who don't want the cap raised are the ones who don't have enough gold anyway to afford anything gg.

04/26/2013 11:42 PMPosted by OverkillThe auction house cap is ignorant and useless. It needs to be removed. By having a cap you are holding our game play back. Which makes this game really unjoyable after you reach a certain point. if cap was removed be a lot better to find items other than having to go to some other site cause the 2bil items just aren't cutting it! All the gg items are stuck on some other site and not diablo ah.Having the 2bil cap removed will bring those items back to where they belong and us godly elite players can actually find upgrades. This needs to happen with a quickness as in like last freakin patch. So get to work Blizz and do the right thing! Remove the ignorant useless burden of a 2bil cap!

04/28/2013 10:56 PMPosted by DiVerseThis limit is enforced because System.Array uses an Int32 as it's indexer, hence only valid values for an Int32 can be used. On top of this, only positive values (ie, >= 0) may be used. This means the absolute maximum upper bound on the size of an array is the absolute maximum upper bound on values for an Int32, which is available in Int32.MaxValue and is equivalent to 2^31, or roughly 2 billion.
1.) The price cap makes it so anyone who finds something worth more than 2billion gold has to sell it for less than it is worth or go to 3rd party to get the true value.
2.) Going 3rd party increases risk of scams.
3.) Going 3rd party increases risk of account compromises
4.) Going 3rd party means the auction house gold sink doesn't get used.
5.) Selling for only 2 billion means the gold sink isn't being used to its full potential. For every 1billion gold the item could have sold for that is 150 million gold that could of sunk out of the economy. That is more than several accounts make in a lifetime and this is per-item on a daily basis
6.) Less gold sinking out of the economy means the value of gold goes down even further.
7.) The lower the value of gold goes the even higher these top items prices become.
8.) Due to these higher prices, more items value reach over 2 billion gold in value and problems 1-7 happen even more.
9.) Players no longer have access to the best items in game because they can't be sold on the AH for their true value.
04/28/2013 11:16 PMPosted by ChillaxinSo yes, "Ah cap is a burden to all players" because without the cap mega billions of gold would be sinking out of the economy everyday and all our gold would be worth more. Everyone has gold, so it is safe to assume this is affecting everyone one way or another
And the value of gold is due to the relationship between the GAH and RMAH.No, it's not. That relationship was broken a while ago. The value of gold is now linked to 3rd party sites and this is reflected in the price of gems.
Also, raising or eliminating the cap also gives those who bot a huge incentive to ramp up the practiceNot necessarily true. Gold is being devalued every day and eventually it won't be profitable to bot en masse anymore. Botters and gold sellers kill themselves. They don't need to unlimit the cap for that to happen.
