Quote from Bleu42But realize there's a very large chunk of players (judging solely on the sentiment I see on both here and the Bnet forums) that DO care about how out of control the economy could get...
Those guys that rather prefer no economy at all should just ignore the broken economy that exists when there also is a solid selffound experience. It seems quite hypocritical for me if someone demands a good selffound experience and still complains once he gets it, just because other players also get what they want.
The inflated economy of Diablo 2 non-ladder always found a common currency once the old one became uninteresting or worthless. When I started playing Diablo 2 11 years ago, the standard currencies were 290s charms, 3/20/20 charms, sojs, high runes, ist runes etc. Ignore the fact now all of these were duped for sure in non-ladder, because in ladder mode where dupes are very unlikely compared to 1.08/1.09 times, the same thing happens with standard currencies.
So what I actually want to say with this is, the economy always found a way to have a more or less stable currency. The inflation also didn't make standard uniques completely worthless, because at some point people didn't even bother starting a trade for a too low price and thus the price of those items was stable or effectively increased based on inflation.
What I want to add is, like I said before, just saying no is a suggestion and reflects the personal opinion perfectly (otherwise a no wouldn't be sufficient). I also don't see a point to start a middle-ground discussion with selffound players. They are the ones who get EVERYTHING they demanded, without compromises. And yet the pro-traders are expected to step into negotiations of what could be an acceptable compromise? There is none, because whatever gets suggested to lift trading restrictions doesn't affect the selffound experience in any way (and what is known from RoS there will be a solid selffound experience). So those compromises are always one-sided and basically just need "approval" from the anti-trade faction. I don't think there is a solid foundation for compromises and I will just draw the consequences. And while I am still interested in the progress of the Diablo franchise, it should be understandable I take part in the discussions.
