$2.50 per mil for gold on RMAH when it is as low as $1 per mil on third party goes 100% against the design philosophy. They said it was so people wouldn't use third party, but their arbitrary restrictions make it so OF COURSE people will use third party. So stupid it's silly.
I don't think commodity sales are going to work on the RMAH. No one is going to pay the minimum prices for all those crafting mats. I'm personally sticking to selling high end items on the RMAH and the rest of the crap on the gold AH.
Yeah, I made a post about this yesterday. Absolutely unnecessary minimum pricing, I don't mind that I have to sell at least a dollars worth, but setting a maximum 25 times higher per unit than what you would expect to get on a good day for mats that are supposed to be sold in bulk? Yeah, someone dropped the ball here. I refuse to believe the numb skulls at blizzard did not see this coming. So, either they made a mistake somewhere, are accepting the limitations of their own code way too easily, or just haven't gotten around to correcting the problem yet.
Wow. I get the whole "minimum sale price" bit, as Paypal takes a cut (as do credit card companies. Back in the day, minimum sale prices where common with CCs). That said, I am surprised that it is minimum per ITEM not minimum per transaction. I just can't see the point, unless they're trying to limit the amount of transactions or something.
tbh i can't see anyone ever buying crafting mats, as long as there is a gold cost for crafting at all..it's no longer needed as a gold sink imo (hello repair costs, hello ah cut)..they should just remove gold cost completely from crafting and instead increase the amount of crafting mats..only under this condition this stuff will ever be worth anything (and therefor traded in the rmah).
