Both the RMAH and GAH are being removed.

Who here is excited that Diablo 3 might be headed in the right direction?

Between that, and all the improvements made since launch(not to mention the new xpac), its shaping up to be better than D2.

Most forget D2 was a huge turd before lod.

That is unexpected. I always wonder what factors made them change course for such a major component of the game. Was it that the money made wasn't worth the hassle of managing that system? Did it degrade game play so dramatically that they felt it lost players or box sales?

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Good move into the right direction indeed. I'll probably will be playing some Diablo 3 when the new xpac launches.

Yeah.. i will play it regardless, but this may shape up to even a better game.

I guess no more of those who run around with 30000000 dps.

Awesome and totally unspected news!!! The only con is that we have to wait 6 months... This and the upcoming expansion with the loot system 2.0 will surely bring me back yo Diablo 3! -

Taking a break is not a bad thing though. I think loot 2.0 will work best with the new expansion, and i am also looking forward to the new paragon system.

Looks like I'll be buying the xpac afterall. There will be people hating this change but honestly this will be a welcome change for most.

i have mixed feelings about this.

i don't see why they are getting rid of the gold AH to be honest. actually i do, because it forces people to grind endlessly for the stuff they need rather than easily buying it with the gold they earned on the AH.

basically, instead of quitting after you get really good gear and needing 100's of million of gold to upgrade, they are making it harder to gear up even the mid grade gears.

yeah you can still trade with players like you could in D2 and yeah that is a win for the D3 community, but it will be a time sink just trading for the items you want.

i think it would have been better had they just gotten rid of the RMAH and left it at that IMO

that's what hardcore is like right now and its perfect for me. but whatever, i am happy they are trying to improve the game and make their fans happy, at least some of them.

by the way, i didn't know there was a new xpack coming, all i want to know is.......will it have real pvp?

I was going to come on here and tell you it will never happen.....

Whoops, shows you what I know. 

/salute to Blizzard for doing what I think is a good move.

No, they are changing the drop rate & the quality of the drops (i.e. Loot 2.0).

If they don't take out the gAH, you probably can buy almost high end stuff with only a little gold, not unlike today. That is because stuff don't get destroyed .. so things always get cheaper.

Don't you see all the "budget guide" ... that is going to continue if they do not take out the gAh too.

well .. it caught me by surprise too. I thought they are going to "fix" the loot issue only with account bound stuff.

While I agree that removal of the auction house does bring the game closer to what I would like it to be, I can't help thinking that's it's a bit unfair.  The auction house was one of the features they were advertising to sell the game.  So anyone who really wanted it as part of the mechanics and bought the game is now being told "Sorry we told you you could have this, because now we're taking it away.  Thanks for your money though.".  Also, will there be some kind of compensation for players who dumped $$ into the auction house?  Even if they converted everything into in-game currency, what are they going to spend it on?  There's no auction house to buy items from.  The merchants sell crap in the game.  You can only use so many potions.  You can't buy gems anywhere except in the AH and you can't buy materials for crafting.

I find it hard to believe they are taking it out in order to send the game in the right direction. That sounds to me like something you'd say to build up hype. More likely they are doing it because it doesn't make them enough money.

 

Personally, I like the auction house. I've always enjoyed the market side of online RPGs, and Diablo 3 had a pretty decent system and UI for trading stuff. I'll likely be going back to pick up some upgrades before they decide to shut it down.

Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.

2 handed swords in the game don't make them money either, but they don't take those items out.

I don't see why people think it's likely that "not making enough money" is a reason for taking a feature out of a game. Or do you mean to say that you think the AH actually cost money for Blizzard?

Ballsy move. Arguably should have happened in the first year. But I am impressed they are doing it.
