Since it's only being sold by Blizzard directly, you'll have to wait until they put it up on discount again. If you're lucky it might be around Christmas.
Wouldn't hold my breath, though.

Not much, because they aren't limited, or, likely a bit more than they are now. The Star 2 Collectors is 150 bucks on Amazon.

9 hours, uh? I guess I'll be going to sleep when the servers go live for Europe (need my 8 hour sleep for when the servers go live here to survive the marathon ;)).
Fine by me.

Well for once I have to agree with wit Sabvre... there are tons of "one post" Members that contribute NOTHING to the community... the thing is I think you cant circumvent this matter... even if you say "at least 10 constructive posts" people will just write @%"§ 10 times to get the keys.
Oh and definitely point 3... so many stupid topics about things that were "new" months ago. (and they were most likely already discussed <_<)
Worst problem is Curse doesn't give a fuck about us actual members. Same strategy as F2P games... aim at the newbies rather than retain the oldbies. More people means more people that can accidentally or intentionally click on the banners/ ads.. means more people that bring them money.
Curse you Curse... enjoy screwing over your longtime forum goers :Thumbs Up:
Quote from Sabvre
I would like to formally protest this post contest.
1.) People are just going to create multiple accounts in order to increase their odds of getting a key.
2.) The long time members are going to get flooded out by the newbs that are ONLY contributing for the key.
3.) The influx of new members normally creates an influx of repeat topics and questions that are often retarded as they are old old old news.

There are still gold selling and other grinding services and character sales as well going on in WoW to this day... If it wasn't worth it people wouldn't practice it.

Quote from FingolfinGR
It's quite amusing. With Diablo II we had the most inconvenient way to trade ever. Diablo III offers us 2 solid, convenient ways (in addition to the one of Diablo II) and yet way more people are complaining!
The face-to-face bartering system had a certain charm that you don't see in modern online games.
Quote from Deventh
Lol..your obviously missing the point here.If we cash out 1000$ and the fee is 10% they will take 100$ which is freaking a lot of money for their pockets. You have any idea how much they are going to win only from people cashing out every year ? Milions.Quote from Molsterr
I still dont understand the fuss. There taken a % out when we cash it....so? if it wasnt for them and this game... we wouldnt get any money at all from items... so... take all the % you want, free money is free. [Free compared to not haven a RMAH at all]
Quote from CherubDown
Blizzard will not take a percentage. There are two fees and both are flat. One for posting, and one for selling. It's all laid out in plane text on the official site:
Official Blizzard Quote:
A nominal fixed transaction fee will be deducted from the seller for each item listed in the auction house. This fee consists of a fixed charge to list the item, which is assessed whether or not the item is successfully sold, and an additional fixed charge that is assessed only if the item is sold. Because the listing portion of the fee is charged even if the item doesn't sell, it will be in the seller's interest to list items he or she believes other players will be interested in, and to do so at a competitive price. Specific details related to the transaction fee for the currency-based auction house will vary by region and will be announced at a later date.
