    personnally i dont think the AH is the real issue, for me its only the hacker and exploiter that ruined the AH's and game not the AH by itself

  • posted a message on marquise unsocketing gem cost
    -- DBraveZ#1254 (Europe [English]), Claw8ds#1130 (Americas [English])
    We love that players are able to remove gems from sockets in Diablo III, as it helps provide more flexibility as you gear up rather than locking you to single choice. However, since un-socketing is so painless and costs so little, what we’ve found is that players will simply recycle the same gem across all their characters rather than creating new ones. An important goal with the new Marquise gems is to act as a gold and Radiant Star gem sink. Currently, there’s nothing in the game that actually pulls those gems out of the economy, but to keep their value up, that’s important.

    In all honesty, I wish the cost to remove the lower tier gems was much higher, more in line with the cost of the Marquise gem. We would prefer players to be crafting new gems of all types rather than just shuffling them around as that makes the gem economy more dynamic (more things coming in, lots of things coming out). Right now it’s almost entirely stagnant, with demand going down every day. If you only had to craft one Marquise Ruby for all 10 characters, that would remove some Radiant Stars from the economy, but realistically it won’t remove much. With the unsocket cost set to 5 million, you now have a clear choice: "should I move my gem 4 times or just craft a new one?" For the sake of the economy, we actually hope you’d prefer to craft a new one.

    Am i the only one who think they all did this in order to maybe make a little more money? i dont really believe in their answer, the cost is so gigantic for a simple thing that it can only be to create a bigger need of gold wich will eventually translate to more transaction and more money and well its either the wheels of fortunes or a viscious circles...or both...whats your own opinion?

    Blizzard restores your items if you get hacked. That's more than you can expect, in my opinion. It's just the items you had on you at the time when you were hacked that are BoA, it doesn't mean that you won't be able to trade anymore in the future, c'mon. If your gear is worth a couple of billions and you get hacked - I'm sorry to say this - it's your fault.

    You people don't get that the reason for dupes is exactly Blizzard's customer service being so nice to people who are too stupid to protect their accounts properly. Dupes are just the result of fixing user's mess beyond what they have to offer according to their ToS. Yeah, flame on if you're offended, I don't care. Have fixed too many computers in my life (and traced back at which point the user made a mistake that caused him to get hacked) to feel sorry for people who get hacked. It's usually a lesson for life and once you feel the pain you're more careful next time.


    the solution is the problem here, they restore without deleting the source.....they been exploited for doing it bad....their fault ....not mines. they want to bring boa because they been exploited...but once again ......they arent doing it right....and someone will pay for it in a way or another at some point


    You're not getting the point.

    If you get hacked, it's your fault. Your items are now BoA so they're not going anywhere. Instead of two dupe-able items, there is only one that's floating around out there. Yes, it won't stop duping for good, but it won't be as worthwhile for the duper and his potential accomplices since they can only do it one at a time. In that case, it is also much easier for Blizzard to track, because the duping results are linear.

    Picture the current duping epidemic. It's a massive web with items being duped in numerous directions via numerous sources.

    BoA; duping goes in one direction because only one copy of the item exists that is not BoA. It will be easy to track back to the origin.


    at this point then the solution would be no restoration at all

    Restore without deleting the source? The source of the dupe is your original item, which has been sold after you got hacked. The buyer of the item had no idea that the item was duped and therefore is the most innocent person of all involved in this situation. Why should they be punished? No way. So, the only way is to not dupe (i.e., not restoring your account), or if they decide to restore your account, make it BoA.

    What exactly is Blizzard's fault? Are you saying it's Blizzard's fault to fix up the mess you left behind when you got hacked? Blizzard does more than enough to tell you to protect the account, they introduced more account security measures than every other company and tell you how to protect your account several times. Dupes only exist because people get hacked (and hackers exploit this by mimicking this stupidity). It sounds harsh but every other way to look at this is just a distorted perception of reality.


    maybe i didnt been hacked at all and maybe i still been affected by dupes economic impact, maybe blizzard is the only one that are duping at the moment with their restoration system.

    imagine i print money......and purchase things with it....that would be so sad to remove it from circulation since the innoccent seller took my money....why would they be punished...? no way ....so the only way... (get it?)

    Yes. Why would he want to get shot? Don't get shot.

    never been hacked with an authenticator myself but im not talking only for me, im being hypothetical over what can happens and who will pay for what i judge wouldnt be fair.

    no boa is > boa solution if blizzard do their job correctly on tracking hacker, and duplicated items.


    Whatever Blizzard does to deal with hackers, it will never be enough. The same goes for botting. Technology will keep changing and programmers will always try and find loopholes or ways to break through the walls. When someone gets hacked, honestly, I can't feel bad for hackee. If you got hacked, legitimately or not (if it's a rollback scheme), it's your fault.

    How often do you see high-end players get legitimately hacked? "Help, XYZ hacked me, give me my account back, I lost everything." You don't see those, yet don't you think those players are the ones that would likely be targeted for their highly desired gear and gold savings? No, but it's possible some of them intentionally set up rollback dupes, but you don't see them giving out their info for people to hack into their account and jack all their belongings.

    That's why the BoA mechanic will be better than no BoA. At least at that point, regardless of the hackee's position, at least one of the item's copies will not be open for additional dupes. You won't see five identical Echoing Furies simultaneously in the AH. Worst comes to worst, it will be one EF and that will be much easier to track if the dupes continue to follow.


    the problem wont get fixed with boa either way.....there is still 2 copy of it in game....nothing fixxed and only the account owner rollback is penalized not the other person who went away with the original item....the only way to fix it fair is to NEVER ever restore any item without deleting the Source.

    I really wonder why they don't apply their "restored items get to be BoA" rule from Asian servers to EU/US. There's no point in restricting this to one region.


    i dont like this concept, it work if you try to abuse the system.

    but you get penalized if you get hacked for real and wont penalize the hacker

    im sure you would be happy to have every piece of your gear and banked gear being BOA and lose all their value after being hacked


    Solution: don't get hacked. Let it be a lesson learned.

    blizzard dont delete dupes, they only create em.


    Sad, very sad. But the fact is no one NO ONE outside of blizzard's employees can prove this one way or the other. Furthermore, its the reason I feel D3 softcore is destined to fail- RMAH translates to money>skill AND without fiscal competition greed is the only thing that can kill a Monopoly.


    when the gem went down to 5million for radiant, they were being duped....not a single person claimed that they got one deleted, none claimed that they had gear deleted after buying anything.

    in TOS there a rules that say that every transaction is final wich is why i believe they didnt been deleted.

    for me its more then enough to be an evidence
