I'm happy, so is everyone else. This isn't a hater thread or anything just want to mention that pulling the Ah brings back everyone plus more to RoS. Thinking about it as a buissness, they obviously didn't make money via rmah like they thought they would and pulling it would make them look really good to the gaming community. We have to believe that if they were really making a killing via rmah I would think they would've of kept it.
All this did was make the black market come back along with JSP in full force for the future. So yeah it actually is the D2 economy that I suppose some want.
I do agree that it removes the ease of getting items.
Even during the D2 days a very small percent actually traded items at all. I know to many on these forums it seems like trading was a thing that everyone did... yeah sure in the hardcore community people traded but many forget about the 90-95% of players that played D2 offline, or just played zero trade or with a small group of friends only.
For me those trade sites were too risky, so i kept away. playing D2 more than ten years i traded 3-4 times and all were with people i knew.
I think Blizzard wants to go back to that where on 5% of the player base trades at all and everyone just enjoys the in game item hunt.
"Damnit, they only introduced the AH to make money!"
Blizzard removes the AH.
"Damnit, they only removed the AH to make money!"
All the "facts" tagged with the word "obviously" in the first post... has it ever come to anyone's mind that Blizzard "obviously" listens to players and "obviously" wants to improve the gaming experience?
